Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is scheduled to launch April 28 on PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X, and publisher Electronic Arts has just revealed the substantial hardware requirements that PC players will need to keep the game running smoothly.
While the CPU and GPU are nothing to scoff at, the amount of storage needed for this game is pretty intense. At this point, ballooning install sizes for AAA titles are hardly surprising, but when every game coming down the pipeline practically needs its own SSD, finding the necessary space becomes a little more challenging.
For comparison, the necessary 155 GB of storage is roughly triple what you needed for the previous game, 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (55 GB). It’s more than what you’d need for games like Hitman 2 (149 GB with DLC), Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (133 GB), or Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege (131 GB with HD texture pack). Thankfully, these days SSDs are regularly available at reduced prices, with some models like the XPG Atom 50 providing 512 GB of space for as little as $39.99.
There’s no word yet on how much space Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will take up on consoles, but you might want to do a quick audit of anything you haven’t played in the past week or so, just in case.
