A new game comes out. Gamers scramble to buy it, download it, and play. However, when a graphically beautiful game like Lords of the Fallen releases, there’s one big concern before it can reach your console: download space. So, before you buy the game and risk breaking your own heart when you don’t have the inventory to install it, let’s talk about Lords of the Fallen’s download size.
How much download space do you need to play Lords of The Fallen?
If you look at Lords of the Fallen’s Steam page, developers recommend you have 45 GB of available download space. This is a safe overestimation, even if Steam describes it as a minimum. However, across all consoles, you really need about 34 GB of space. This is quite fitting for a Soulslike game. A similar amount of disk space is recommended/necessary for games like Elden Ring.
What makes up the download size?
Lords of the Fallen’s 34 GB doesn’t require the largest download space in history — Ark: Survival Evolved holds that record at 400 GB. However, it still monopolized a sizeable amount of real estate on your PC, Playstation, or Xbox. Lords of The Fallen’s 34 GB download size mostly comes from its graphics, mechanics, and 20-30 hours of gameplay.
In terms of graphics, the Lords of the Fallen developers, HEXWORKS, made their game vivid and detailed. This means that the game has a lot of background assets to load and manage, making the game’s file size larger. That adds even more requirements to your gaming equipment. This isn’t as much of a concern on Playstation or Xbox because your console will be tuned to be able to handle any game made for it. For PC users, though, Steam recommends you have the minimum graphic capability of 6GBs VRAM | NVIDIA GTX-1060 | AMD Radeon RX 590 to run Lords of The Fallen smoothly.
