The official download size varies depending on the platform you are using:

  • computer users will need more space on their platform because the game needs 65 GB of storage space.
  • XboxOne users need to make room on their platform to 35.57 GBwhile Xbox series S/X users should ensure that their device has adequate storage space 53.28 GB above.
  • Unfortunately, there is no information about the possible size of the game for PlayStation 4 And PlayStation 5 users. We expect the size to be similar to the Xbox equivalents.

Preload dates for each platform

As usual, the game can be preloaded before its official release. That doesn’t mean you don’t have to download anything once the game is released, as day one patches are nothing new in modern times. And there are always bug fixes needed in the early days.

There’s good news for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S users: You can already download Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon now. PlayStation 4 and 5 users have to wait a few more days, preloading will be possible from From August 23, 2023. Unfortunately, there is no information on a possible preload date for PC.
