Why the PC version of Titanfall is 48GB?

Titanfall has now released on the Xbox One and PC, and it’s getting a lot of good word.

Unfortunately, PC gamers are noticing that the size of the Origin installation is a whopping 48GB(post installation). The Xbox One download size of Titanfall is 16.39GB while the PC version is a whopping 21GB.

So, why the disparity in size — is it the high-res textures? A lack of optimization?

I think even with my current download speed it is going to take me at least 3-5 days :(

Fundamentally, it’s all thanks to roughly 35GB of uncompressed audio. Respawn's decision to stick with uncompressed audio on the PC comes down to sheer processing power.

The game’s minimum CPU requirement is a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and that simply isn’t enough horsepower to run the game and decompress audio at the same time. Baker explains that even modest quad-core machines wouldn’t have a problem decompressing the audio on the fly, but clearly the company is focused on running on as many machines as possible.

Once installed, the PC version expands to over twice its original size, but the Xbox One remains relatively small. A 21GB download is much easier to swallow than 48GB, but it’s still uncomfortably large for those of us with monthly bandwidth caps.

The download sizes are so huge that I have stopped downloading instead I prefer buying a PC DVD for the install.
