How Many GB is Hogwarts Legacy? File Size Explained

Initially, when looking at places like Hogwarts Legacy’s Steam page, the recommended storage space is 85 GB. This likely accounts for the base game, current DLC and any future ones that bulk up the space slightly. This makes sense since, as time goes on, more exclusive cosmetics and features will continue to be released. However, the actual file size is slightly smaller, with a 69.7 GB storage requirement. As time goes on and we get more updates, that’ll likely increase.

If you’re about to hop onto the PlayStation 5 version of Hogwarts Legacy, you’re looking at just under 80 GB of storage required to download. Similarly, Xbox Series X|S requires slightly less at around 77 GB. This is likely because the PlayStation versions include console-exclusive content, unlike Xbox and PC. With that said, it is still possible you’ll need a little more space as updates, patches, and DLCs release for the game.

While there is currently limited information on the file size for the Nintendo Switch, we can safely assume that it’ll be compressed before its release in July. Considering the Switch is already limited on storage compared to PC and consoles, it’s also safe to say that getting an SD card may be helpful if you’re looking to get Hogwarts Legacy alongside various other games.
