14GB Battlefield 4 install needed for optimal Xbox 360 performance

DICE "highly recommends" it.

The Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 4 will include a 14GB install option for optimal performance, and developer DICE reccomends you use it.

Battlefield 4 will not function at all without a mandatory 2GB install, a new EA FAQ page has revealed (thanks, VG247). You can then choose further install options for each of the game's two discs.

Multiplayer is again housed on disc one and has an additional 6.6GB of content.

Disc two houses Battlefield 4's campaign, which bolts on a further 5.8GB of data.

"We highly recommend performing these additional installations to make sure you have the best experience possible in Battlefield 4," the FAQ concluded.

"At this point it's safe to say that the current-gen consoles fall significantly short in delivering anything like the full Battlefield 4 experience," Digital Foundry wrote in its Battlefield 4 beta analysis. "The game is still very playable and fun in its own right but there's no doubt that players sticking with these versions of the game will be missing out on a significant element of the full experience."
