Games these days tend to have huge install sizes, don't they? Red Dead Redemption 2 is famously big, taking up about 100GB of your precious hard drive space. However, it isn't alone; many modern releases are easily north of 50GB, and when you consider PlayStation 4 launched with 500GB of space, it's becoming a bit of an issue.
It's refreshing, then, when a major release manages to squeeze down to a comparably puny file size. Case in point, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software's Japan-themed action adventure due in just a couple of days. According to a user on Reddit who appears to have their copy early, the title will only take up about 12.5GB. A 3.6GB day one patch increases that, obviously, but the game's total size still comes in at a fraction of its peers. An impressive feat indeed.
Having said that, From Software is usually pretty good for this. Dark Souls III requires 18GB, while Bloodborne is a little bigger at 27GB. A downward trend, then, but that's a positive for those struggling to make room. We suppose if Sony follows Google Stadia's lead, you won't need to worry about filling your PS5 up.
