By default, users will only have the Erangel map downloaded and have an option to download the others. The developers have added the ‘Download’ option in the in-game settings, where users can download and delete the required resource packs.

There are a few rewards that gamers can receive for downloading specific resource packs. This feature would come in handy in managing the storage as many players face issues with space on their devices.
