Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5’s Day One Patch is Bigger than the Game Itself

At this point you’re probably wondering what exactly is going on over at Robomodo… First they release a questionable gameplay trailer, they they completely re-work the art style, and now, the game’s day-one patch will be bigger than the actual game itself.

According to GameCabin, the on-disc portion of the game will install at a fairly reasonable 4.6GB, however, you’ll then need to download the game’s Day-One patch, a patch which usually fixes some minor things after the game finishes development, however, this patch is almost double the size of the game itself.

With Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 launching today in North America and in Europe on Friday, there’s currently no telling what exactly the game includes if the day-one patch is almost double the size.

The game comes as both a physical and digital release, but at this point, Activision may as well just have launched it digitally, it’d make sense considering you’re downloading the majority of the game on day-one.

We, along with many other publications, are yet to actually receive our review copies of the game, so it may be worth holding off as our review will likely arrive post-launch. Though I’m already a little apprehensive.
