Soon, the download required for DC Universe Online on Nintendo Switch will get substantially smaller (decreasing to about 16gb). Additionally, the game's movies and motion comics will be removed from the initial download and made available separately in a free, optional Cinematics Pack DLC (about 2 gb).
We have worked diligently to better optimize the game to reduce the install size. The previous, larger download, especially when factoring in regular new content and updates, required an SD card to play, even for brand new players. While we still recommend an SD card, this reduction in install size will allow most everyone to download and try out the game.
However, when the transition to the smaller installation size occurs, all players will be required to re-download the base game (and optionally the Cinematics Pack DLC). The easiest way to accomplish this will be to uninstall your current version of DCUO and redownload fresh once the update is available. We believe the advantages of freeing up space for everyone will be tremendous. We also recognize this is an inconvenience and apologize for it.
We expect the new download to become available (and required) on March 12, 2020. Questions or comments? Please join the discussion on the official forums.
