How Big is Horizon Forbidden West?

In a world where some games are taking up over 100+ GB on consoles, it is important to know what to expect when it comes time to download. Big narrative games like Horizon Forbidden West are notorious for having extremely large downloads. The PlayStation 4 version of Horizon Forbidden West comes in two discs, splitting the massive 97GB, open-world game between them. But if you digitally download it, that’s nearly 100 GB taken up on your console. Similarly, it’s over 100 GB on PlayStation 5.

So how big can PC owners expect their version of Horizon Forbidden West to be? No official word has been announced, but the estimates are that it will be around 80-100 GB or more.

At the moment, Horizon Forbidden West isn’t available to preload, however, PC games normally become available for preload 24 hours in advance of a release.
