There was a post a long time ago, about the size of the download, but I can't find the link. From memory, the total download for the entire game (during the install process) was said to be about 27 GB. After the install completed, the space taken up by the game was to be about 22 GB.

So you're going to have to be patient. I think the 11 GB assets file is the biggest one, but there are other files that will be several Gig in size.

Loggin's probably right though and all the patches will download with it at least. I didn't think of that since I downloaded it back in Dec before all the patches.
Aha! I see! Well that made things much more clear, I finally just bought it have some friends pursuaded me to

Anyhow, thanks for the help to the both of you! Much apriciated!

well , it might still other files after that one, but what i originaly meant was you will not have to download the patches separatly, it will all go in one download session.

Depending on your download speed, SWTOR is one of those "start the install/download and go to work/school/bed/a friend's house/on vacation" things. Unless you have a really fast download speed, you're not going to be playing within an hour or two of installing. I think my fastest install (Digital Download version) took 12 hours, back at launch.
