BnS is taking 50gb space on my SSD

Recommended Posts

Is it really necessary?  what can i delete to shrink the size of this game?  out of the 50gb, 37gb is located in the "cookedpc" folder.   thx.

Well, we do have 293829382389293289 costumes for all races and classes... why do you think every patch that introduces ONE costume, creeps the game size up by 40-60MB? :D

There potentially is something you could do but it comes with a drawback...

under BnS\contents\Local\NCWEST there are different language folders. you can delete all language folders except English. that should reduce your game folder by 10GB, the only issue is, whenever you start the launcher it will redownload them unless you use bnsbuddy.

Just put them someplace else and use https://superuser.com/questions/1020821/how-to-create-a-symbolic-link-on-windows-10 to make them appear where they should be normally. You can do this with most of the game files, but if you move them to HDD, it'll increase your loading screens by a bit.

I just did this for the language files only and it works. Thanks!

50Gb..but that's nothing tbh...some single player games are larger than that..wow uses similar amount too..and considering graphics of bns and its combat system , its natural for it to require 50Gb...
