Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's Massive File Size Has Gotten Even Bigger

The upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was already said to be a big game, and now it appears to be getting even bigger ahead of its launch later this month. Eager fans just got more info on the game this week thanks to a recent preview, in which Respawn’s developers sat down to share a lot about Jedi: Survivor’s improved combat, character customization options, and integration with the larger Star Wars universe. Interesting details of the narrative connection.

From its debut during last year’s Star Wars Day festivities, to its massive reveal and gameplay trailer at The Game Awards 2022, Jedi: Survivor promises to be much bigger than its 2019 action predecessor, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This includes how much drive space the game will take up, with early leaks claiming that Jedi: Survivor will require around 130 GB, already a substantial increase from Fallen Order’s 44 GB.

Now that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s official dimensions have been revealed on EA’s website, it’s even bigger than those already eye-opening leakers have suggested. According to the Daily Star Wars Games Twitter account, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will take up a whopping 155GB of storage space on PC — 25GB more than previously thought and 111GB more than the PC version of Fallen Order.

Fans in the comments section of the Daily Star Wars Games post have started speculating about what caused Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to increase in size so much, and sure enough this week’s hands-on preview has promised plenty of content. Jedi: Survivor will let players play as former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis explores new planets, customizes the hero’s appearance with different outfits and hairstyles, and even establishes Cal’s connection to the Force by unlocking new powers and lightsaber poses.

All of this means that the Jedi: Survivor experience will be significantly larger than its predecessor, and the game’s newly confirmed size of 155 GB may be a testament to how much Respawn has invested in its 2019 sequel to the smash hit. Of course, this increased file size could also be the result of compression and optimization issues, but in either case players will likely need to free up a lot of disk space ahead of the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor later this month.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches April 28 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
