During the Starfield Direct event, Bethesda announced that Starfield will be launched on both PC and Xbox platforms on the same day i.e., September 6. The studio also revealed Starfield download size along with the game’s key specs. Since this is a game that has been rumored to be in development for well over a decade, the scope of content seems massive.
Starfield Direct and Xbox Showcase both revealed that this could be Bethesda’s largest game yet. Starfield is also among the largest releases in ages on any platform. With Starfield preorder sales already out, players are already gearing up for the release and ensuring their rig is compatible. Here’s what we know so far about Starfield download size for Xbox and PC.
Starfield download on PC requires an SSD
PC is a huge market for Bethesda, and they are always striving to bring the best experience on the platform with all their releases. This is a Space RPG of celestial proportions, so it is natural that the first installation of this new franchise could have high requirements. It was revealed that the Starfield PC file size is around 125 GB. This puts Starfield among the largest RPGs ever made in terms of storage requirements.
Furthermore, it was also revealed that Starfield would require an SSD to run, given the graphics and scope of the game. This is also very important news for PC gamers, because Starfield is the first game to have SSD as a minimum requirement to run.
Starfield download size Xbox
Much like the PC version, Starfield on Xbox will also be available with an early access of 5 days. Bethesda has announced that Xbox too will require a minimum storage space of 125 GB to run their new game. Xbox X/S is equipped with advanced SSD, so there should be no issues for those who own the console. 512 GB users might want to free up some space before Starfield’s launch.
This is Xbox Series X’s most anticipated release in years, so surely the gameplay experience is bound to be on par with the PC version despite the Starfield FPS lock.
