It’s the biggest game of the year for Xbox One fans, but it’s going to take up a chunk of your hard drive space to play it.
Original story as follows:
If you haven’t seen it already, we’ve been tracking and updating a complete list of all install sizes for the Xbox One with the goal of providing a handy resource for those trying to make the most of the Xbox One’s primitive 500GB hard drive. Today we got word of the Install Size of easily the year’s most anticipated game on the console, 343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians.
At a base amount – before any patches or DLC downloads you may acquire – the game will take up 46.19GB of data. Given that the 500GB hard drive actually only offers you 362GB for free use – the rest sequestered for console operation and UI – that means Halo 5: Guardians will take up 13% of your available space on the core system.
It sees the game scrape into the Top 10 biggest install sizes on Xbox One, sneaking it at eighth place. Here is that list for your interest;
