It looks like physical copies of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will require a mandatory download before you can play the title for the first time. According to a publication on Reddit, dedicated to the title, the physical editions are already arriving in authorized stores. And upon seeing it, users have confirmed that it contains a small text on the front cover, where the need for the download is specified, in the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions. It should be noted that the size of the download itself has not yet been confirmed.

This did not surprise many, since the North American company has already released the specifications of the title, where it was revealed that the game will occupy around 150 GB on the hard drive. Although it must be taken into account that in the Xbox Series S version this number is lower (44 GB) since only 4K texture loadouts will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC.

The reality that this trend towards physical releases comes a long way. We remember cases like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (71 GB), where players had to download all the content from the Internet, or Metro Exodus, which also required a download almost twice as large as the data stored on the disc physical.

Even if Respawn Entertainment It has not been decided in this regard, this need to download content could mean that in the future players will not be able to play it, if access to the servers is closed. This fact reopens the debate on the supposed decline of the physical format and its possible disappearance, if the trend continues, in a few years.
