Massive file size of Red Dead Redemption 2 would make it Rockstar’s biggest game yet

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.

Shyvana is one of League of Legends’ most outdated champions. She’s in desperate need of a visual and gameplay update (VGU). Riot have earmarked her as one of the next ones in line ⁠— and they’ve got a plan ⁠— but there still might be a wait.

Back in 2019, Riot put a poll out to the community to choose who should get the next VGU in League of Legends. Fiddlesticks and Volibear ended up winning the poll, and have received their gameplay updates across Season 10 to much fanfare.

However, history never remembers the losers. Shyvana ended up coming third in the poll ⁠— with over 20% of the vote ⁠— and Riot has hushed any potential VGU for her since.

Riot agrees Shyvana is in dire need of a VGU, but there’s no firm plans in place yet.

Even Dr. Mundo, who came last in the poll with 14% of the vote, is now getting a VGU, leapfrogging Shyvana. However, Riot are still looking towards a potential Shyvana rework, and it could be coming as soon as Season 11.

Design director Andrei ‘Meddler’ van Roon opened up on Reddit about the potential of a Shyvana VGU coming in Season 11. The developer stated that while Shyvana “does need a VGU,” there’s other champions who need it more.

“I think Shyvana does need a VGU. Only question for me is how to prioritize her versus other highly in need champs like Udyr for example,” he told players.

However, even if it’s still on the drawing board, Riot has a clear identity in mind for Shyvana. They want to revert the shapeshifting dragon towards a fighter, rather than the burst mage she’s become.

The on-hit or bruiser Shyvana builds of old have been tossed to the side, with the new meta being full AP, relying on huge E damage procs to nuke enemy squishies. Riot wants to bring her back to her roots when they do rework her.


“I wouldn’t consider a VGU that didn’t strongly support a fighter playstyle as appropriate given her history and fantasy,” he added.

For now though, there’s no official go-ahead on Shyvana’s rework. Dr. Mundo is where the team’s focus is at, with plans for the Madman of Zaun fully in motion for a Season 11 release.
