Steam pre-load/download size for Far Cry 3

#1 Posted by Omega (829 posts) -

Hey guys I'm on a relatively tight monthly bandwidth limit of 80gb. I was wondering If anyone who has preloaded or anyone in Europe who has the game downloaded now can tell me the download size.

Thanks in advance.

The whole package is 20 gigs, but you can choose to not install the map editor which kicks the download down to a mere 8 gigs.

@MikkaQ: 8 gigs is fine for me to download. Can I download the 8 gig version separately or do I have to download the whole thing and then choose not to install the map editor?

How the hell is a map editor 12 gigs alone? That's insanity.

When I downloaded it, there were check boxes and I could deselect the map editor. I'm definitely not using that kind of space for a map editor.

@Oldirtybearon: I have no idea, But my jaw hit the floor when it said 20 gigs. Then I deselected the map editor and had the same reaction again.

@MikkaQ: Thanks a lot for the info. I guess I'll be getting the steam version after all.

@Oldirtybearon: Insanity?

Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is?
