Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Requires A Huge Install To Play

The release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is right around the corner. The game will be out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC through Steam. But if you’re getting ready to pick up the game on release day, you’re going to want to get rid of your older digital games on your consoles. You’re definitely going to need some open space to install the latest game that follows Cal Kestis and BD-1.

Respawn Entertainment released information about the install size for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on every platform. For PC gamers getting the game on Steam, you’ll need at least 155GB of free space open to download the game. And if you think that is a lot of space for this game, you’re going to be surprised at what console gamers will need to play.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PlayStation 5 will need at least 147GB of free space to download and install. Everyone else playing the game on their Xbox Series X will also need 140GB of space open for the game. For many who are already accustomed to installing large games on their gaming platforms, this really isn’t a surprise. When news came out about the size of Jedi Survivor on PC, it gave a pretty good idea that console gamers would have to make some space before downloading the game.

For comparison, the first game to star Cal Kestis, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, was around 55GB total across all platforms with updates and extra content added on. This was around 9GB more than the original release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PlayStation 4, which ended up being around 45GB at launch.

A lot of the space being taken up for the upcoming sequel could be attributed to high-resolution textures on everything included in the game, from the environments to the character models. However, this could also be a sign of just how wide Jedi Survivor will be for players to explore new locations and face new dangers.

Recently, the game was previewed by various gaming media outlets that had a chance to play through a portion of the game’s story, showcasing new areas players will visit and a collection of new features. The combat of the game not only adds new lightsaber forms for Cal to use, as well as lightsaber customization options, but players will be able to change up the look of Cal Kestis in a variety of ways.

As far as any other big details regarding the story or other post-game features, everyone will have to wait for the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to see everything. The game is set to come out on April 28th, 2023 for multiple platforms and has preorder bonuses that include extra costumes based on the original Star Wars trilogy and the recent Disney Plus show, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
