Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the fall and after Playstation shared box art for the game’s PS4 Pro Edition bundle, some sharp-eyed fans discovered it’s bulky memory requirements.

The second game in the Red Dead Redemption franchise, Red Dead 2 will require a minimum storage space of 105GB, almost twice that of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V’s requirement of 65GB of free space.

Grand Theft Auto V is widely praised for the huge amount of content in the game, and it looks like Rockstar has put even more detail into the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 based on the memory requirements.


The storage requirements were found on the back of the PS4 Pro Bundle box after it was announced by Playstation on their official blogs on Monday.

This makes Red Dead one of the biggest games – storage wise – to ever come out on the PS4, beating Battlefield 4 Premium Edition’s requirement of 71GB by a considerable margin.

Elder Scrolls online needs 86GB minimum in order to run, but still not as much as Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to require.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is schedule to come out on October 26 and will run on the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, the same as Grand Theft Auto V.

The massive storage requirements probably won’t dampen the excitement for those looking forward to Red Dead 2, but it might give a clue to the massive amount of content Rockstar has put into the game.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. The battle royale genre was at the peak of its powers, with mighty competition stacked up against EA in the form of PUBG, Fortnite, and other top games.

Fast forward 24 months, however, and there’s one BR game that shines brighter than the others. You guessed it, Apex Legends!

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse can launch explosives from his mechanical arm. He’s coming in Season 8.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
