Better make sure you have some space on your PS5 if you want to play leavingbecause the file size is not exactly small.

Arguably the biggest bane in any console gamer’s life when it comes to organizing their digital library is figuring out which games to download. That’s entirely because games are absolutely massive these days, and it turns out Forspoken is no different. After PlayStation game size (Thanks, Push Square), Forspoken’s download size is currently a fairly large 87,275 GB, and obviously we don’t know if there’s a day-one patch for the game or not.

Obviously downloading some data and losing half an hour or so isn’t the worst thing, but when it comes to a game like Forspoken you have to hope it’s even worth wasting that time. An ad showcasing the game last year was so bad, it immediately produced a slew of memes and pisstakes (which Square Enix saw, by the way) that cast the game in a not-so-favorable light.

Hopefully the game itself is good, as Luminous Productions (the same team behind Final Fantasy 15) hopes Forspoken can be a solution to the open-world fatigue that many of us have. Part of this process of curing this affliction was looking at titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Ghost of Tsushima, as the team didn’t want to just focus on making cool spells, but also wanted to be interesting to travel around the world.

Fans got a chance to try out the game for themselves thanks to a demo released in December, but some were concerned about the lackluster side quests in that demo. Square Enix has clarified that the demo was specifically created to give a feel for the game. So don’t worry too much about how it was as it doesn’t fully reflect the final game. Let’s hope Forspoken is worth its generous PS5 file size
