How much internet data does Star Wars Battlefront 2 use?
Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a dozen multiplayer modes with up to 40 players per game. Unlike the game’s single player modes, its online multiplayer modes constantly use internet bandwidth. If you play games on a fixed mobile data or hotspot connection, you might have to watch your online data usage while you play Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Let’s take a closer look at how much mobile data it takes to download, update, and play Star Wars Battlefront 2. Remember that the easiest way to stay under your monthly data limit is to switch to an unlimited fixed mobile data plan.
How big is the Star Wars Battlefront 2 game download?
Downloading a game typically uses much more mobile data than updating or playing the game. Keep in mind that the file size is larger than the download size (which is compressed), and that the file size increases over time as developers release patches and updates for the game.
|Microsoft Windows||<60 GB|
|Playstation 4||48.42 GB|
|Xbox One||75.41 GB|
If you don’t have enough internet data to download Star Wars Battlefront 2 without putting a serious dent in your monthly online data, there’s an easy way to save data installing the game. Instead of downloading the game online, purchase the physical disk and install the game offline.
How big are the Star Wars Battlefront 2 game updates?
Electronic Arts releases patches and updates for Star Wars Battlefront 2, which you can keep track of in the Announcements and Game Updates. Patches and updates range in size, but can top 6 GB. If you’re worried about updates pushing you over your monthly data limit, turn off auto-updates and instead manually install patches and updates when you have data available.
How much data does Star Wars Battlefront 2 gameplay use?
Star Wars Battlefront 2 uses about 150 MB of data per hour, which is somewhat high for online gaming. The number of players in your game, your frame rate, the tick rate of your server, and whether or not you use voice chat all affect your real data use.
- The more players in a game, the more data – like chat logs and information about player movement – your internet network has to share with other players’ networks. To save mobile data, choose multiplayer modes with fewer teammates and/or opponents.
- A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, which makes it run faster. A lower frame rate saves you data, but makes it harder for you to react quickly in the game. You can adjust your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. To change your frame rate, you’ll need to disable vertical synch (V-Synch).
- A 128-tick server, which refreshes the game 128 times every second, uses about twice as much data as a 64-tick server, which refreshes the game 64 times every second.
- If you use voice chat, you’ll use much more data during gameplay. For example, PUBG uses less than 30 MB of data per hour without voice chat. With voice chat, it can use more than 50 MB of data per hour.
