Star Wars Jedi: Survivor physical copies still require a massive download, sigh

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sounds like it’s going to be absolutely huge, in every sense of the word. While it’s shaping up to be everything that both fans and critics of Fallen Order have been hoping for, our storage space is going to pay the price.

In his preview for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, GAMINGbible’s own Will McCue discussed all the juicy improvements that gamers can look forward to, including a variety of customisation options for Cal, a much better Holomap, and, praise be, fast travel. Honestly, that last point alone is all I needed to know to be convinced Survivor is going to be a much better experience than its predecessor.

Take a look at the trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor below.

With big improvements comes an enormous file size though, and anyone wanting to play this thing is going to have to clear some serious storage space before they can even dream of installing it. The PC version of the game is set to take up 155GB of space - almost triple that of Fallen Order (which has a file size of 55GB).

As TheGamer reports, it seems that the game is so massive that it might not even fit on a physical game disc. On the r/FallenOrder subreddit by Reddit user NightwingXII, an image of two alleged real physical copies of the game (on PS5 and Xbox Series X) was shared, and on the front of the PS5 version’s box, small text which reads ‘download required’ can be seen.

Obviously, regardless of if you have a physical or digital version of a PS5 game, it takes up storage space either way, but this seems to imply that some, if not all of Jedi: Survivor’s files might need to be downloaded online. That massively sucks for people who don’t have a very good internet connection, and also doesn’t spell great things for the game’s preservation later down the line whenever the PS5’s online connectivity gets shut down.

The reason for this is totally unknown - other chunky games in the past have gotten round this problem with a very simple solution: more discs. We’ll hopefully get a bit more clarity on the situation when the game releases on 28 April.
