This page of the Far Cry 6 game guide contains information about the HD Texture Pack. We explain whether installing the HD Texture Pack is required to run the game and whether it needs to be purchased.
Basic information about the HD Texture Pack
The HD Texture Pack is a free set of high resolution textures that you might be interested in if you want to improve your game's graphics. Upon installing the HD Texture Pack, the textures of objects, walls, ground and other ambient elements will appear sharper and contain more detail.
The HD Texture Pack is available for:
- the PS5 version,
- the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X versions,
- the PC version - at least 11 GB of VRAM is required
The HD Texture Pack is not available on last generation consoles, i.e. PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X. You can only play using standard quality textures on these consoles.
Installing the HD Texture Pack is optional. You may choose not to install better textures if, for example, you have limited free disk space on your console or computer.
The HD Texture Pack is available for all editions of the game, including the standard version. You don't have to buy the Gold or Ultimate edition.
How do I install the HD textures?
The game may prompt you to download and install the HD Texture Pack along with the base game. However, it should be noted that installing the HD textures will considerably increase the installation size. In the case of the PS5 version, the HD Texture Pack "weighs" about 26 GB. Combined with the basic edition of the game (about 42 GB), the whole installation can take up over 68 GB on the device's disk.
You can also install just the base game at first and download the HD Texture Pack later. To do this, go to the game installation options (Manage Game Content in the PlayStation 5 example screenshot) and select to download the HD Texture Pack.
