We’ve already briefly mentioned the massive size of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. On PC and current generation consoles (with the exception of Xbox Series S), the game eats up around 150 GB of disk space. Unlike other larger games, however, the new adventure of Cal Kestis is released on only one disc, the rest of the data, according to information from Reddit, you will have to download. On the Xbox Series S, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor only takes up a paltry 44 GB, which is due to the fact that the version on the less powerful console does not contain textures in 4K resolution.
If you pre-ordered the physical edition of the game, be prepared that you might not be able to play the game right away when you get home, and you’ll have to download an as-yet-unspecified amount of data. If Respawn’s Blu-rays managed to fill up to bursting, you’ll be downloading roughly 50GB.
But it is also quite possible that you will find only a few files on the physical disk and you will have to download practically the entire game anyway. This was the case in the past, for example, with physical copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, which contained only 70MB of data, while customers had to download the rest of the game (150GB) for a long time.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is not an online game, so EA could in good conscience hold its nose and release the game on two discs. High-speed internet connection in homes is still far from a common standard, and the need to download more than tens of GB of data can be an operation for long hours.
If you pre-ordered the game digitally, you can start downloading the game ahead of time. On the EA platform and Steam tomorrow at 17:00 in the afternoon, on consoles an hour later.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches this Friday, April 28, on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
