Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s Install Size on Xbox One Seems to be Refreshingly Small by 2019 Standards
Without counting the likely day one patch, Sekiro on Xbox One will only set you back about 13GB of hard drive space.
Install sizes for games in the latter part of this console generation have really started to grow drastically large. Just take a look at this week’s release of The Division 2, which will nearly take up 100GB of space for those playing on PS4. Luckily, it seems like one upcoming release this month might actually be on the smaller side, at least on Xbox One.
The install size for next week’s release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has now been listed on the game’s official game page on Microsoft’s website and it appears to be much smaller than most other releases nowadays. In total, Sekiro is said to take up only 12.58GB of space on your hard drive. Not too shabby for a sizable triple-A experience from Activision and FromSoftware.
It’s worth noting though that just because this is the supposed size on Xbox One doesn’t mean it’ll be the same on PS4 and PC. In fact, Sekiro’s Steam page says you’ll need 25GB of space to install the game leading you to believe it’ll be closer to that size on PC. As of now, there has been no information provided on just how much space the game might take up on PS4.
Plus, it’s worth noting that this install size on Xbox One is likely not even final. As it is with most games now, Sekiro will probably have a day one patch that will increase this base install size by a bit. Still, if merely 12GB is all that the game is to start, that’s pretty impressive in 2019.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is slated to launch next week on March 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. To tide you over until launch, be sure to check out recent hands-on preview.
