Why does Starfield have such a large download size?


Basically, Starfield's universe includes more than 100 systems and more than 1,000 planets to discover and explore. Sounds promising, right? And, of course, a story, factions, cities, and countless NPCs add to the size of the game as well.

Even though the main story quest won't be too large, it will still be longer than in previous Bethesda games. Thus, Starfield promises to be a great game filled with content at every turn, so to be honest, a 140 GB download isn't that much for it.
