RAGE Will Have 22GB Install

RAGE Will Have 22GB Install

Xbox 360 users will face an extended install time if they decide to install RAGE on their system.  While some multi-platform games offer a partial install of the game on the Xbox 360, John Carmack of id Software has revealed that a partial install of RAGE will not be possible, calling it, “kind of unfortunate.” He further suggests that gamers should bite the bullet and install the 22 gigabytes worth of data that comprises RAGE because of how much it improves the overall gameplay.

The game will ship spread across three DVDs; two for the single-player and one for multi-player.  The PlayStation 3 version will ship on one blu-ray disc.  Both systems should expect a lengthy install time.

Carmack’s comments come from his keynote address at Quakecon 2011 which took place in Dallas, Texas from August 4th to the 7th.

RAGE will launch, barring any more delays, on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 October 4, 2011.
