Far Cry 6 Only Installs 700MB From The Disc On Xbox Series X|S

If you've picked up, or you're thinking of picking up a physical copy of Far Cry 6 for your Xbox Series X, you'll probably want to be aware that due to how Smart Delivery works, you'll pretty much have to download the entire thing.

The disc actually includes the Xbox One version of Far Cry 6, so if you're playing on the next-gen console, you'll find that the game only installs 700MB from the disc, leaving the rest of the 68GB to be downloaded from the web.

This isn't overly surprising to us, and it's not the first time we've seen it, but we can understand why it's such an annoyance for those with poor internet speeds and/or bandwidth caps. Ultimately, it's a downside of the cross-gen era we're going through, where Smart Delivery physical editions prioritise the Xbox One version over Xbox Series X. In contrast, if you're playing on Xbox One, you should find that the majority of the game installs directly from the disc.

Additionally, if you're playing on Xbox Series X and haven't downloaded it already (it should download automatically), be aware that Far Cry 6 has an optional 34GB HD Texture Pack which you can locate by hitting 'Menu' on the game tile and then navigating to 'Manage game & add-ons'. In there, you should see an option for the texture pack to help boost your visuals even further.

Hopefully, by this time next year, these sorts of cross-gen issues with Xbox discs will be a thing of the past.
