Control Ultimate Edition file size has got an update by Remedy Entertainment despite offering better visuals, performance, and both expansions in a bundle.
Control Ultimate Edition will be the best version for PS5
The Control Ultimate Edition is a special version of the game that has been developed for the next-generation consoles. It offers ray-tracing visual mode in addition to a performance mode that runs at 60 FPS. All of the expansions that have been released so far are a part of this Ultimate Edition. Which, is really good so you don’t have to pay money in order to get additional content.
When Control first came out on current-gen consoles, the file size of it was roughly 35 GB. However, the updates and expansions that came out to the game after release brought the average file size to roughly 50 GB. Which is huge if you own a low disk-sized console. That is a huge issue for the first version console owners for years. But thanks to the release of Control Ultimate Edition, this will not be an issue anymore.
Since the next-generation consoles offer limited storage space due to their expensive SSD. It can be a problem to install big games like Control. However, it appears that the file size of the game is rather small. Especially if we compare it to the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
Since Control Ultimate Edition is available to download now on PS Plus through the Australian/New Zealand PlayStation Store, we have a general idea of the file size of the game on PS5 and it is roughly 25 GB without taking into account a patch that might be released post-launch for the game. This file size is almost half the current game size if we take into account updates and expansions that have been released so far.
But keep in mind that the information above is not official. So there can be differences in the future. Most people think that the developers are using new compression technology.
