    Since when did this game take up gigabytes of data?

    I tried downloading this game to my computer and tried to let everything download in the game and it was taking up five gigabytes and it wasn't even finished loading yet. But yet Wizard101 doesn't take anywhere near that much space. It's such a shame that I really can't play this on my new computer.

    Windows 10

    I haven't downloaded for a new computer in quite a while but that doesn't sound right. You are downloading it from the official Kingsisle website, right?

    Re: Since when did this game take up gigabytes of data?

    My Pirate101 files are 6 gigabytes, and Wizard101 has about 8. Having over 5 gigabytes for Pirate101 is perfectly normal, but having them right off the bat from a download does sound a bit fishy. Only the launcher should have been downloaded while the rest of the game downloads as you play. Try digging around in the folders for anything out of the ordinary.

    I'm not aware of any malware or third party software that is as large as 5 gigabytes. My best guess is you began playing Pirate101 allowing ample time for a large chunk of the game to be downloaded.
