Guardians of the Galaxy requires 150GB of disk space on PC

UPDATE: File size has been reduced to around 80GB.

UPDATE 20/10/21: Square Enix has now confirmed the PC file size of Guardians of the Galaxy will be "approximately 80GB at launch". The system requirements on the Steam page have been updated accordingly.

The news was shared in a tweet, with replies confirming that the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game will require around 50GB of storage. There's no official word yet on the Xbox version.

ORIGINAL STORY 18/10/21:

The Steam page for the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game on PC has revealed the sizeable system requirements.

In terms of storage, you'll need 150GB of disk space.

That's far behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 231GB, but exceeds the likes of Hitman 2 (149GB) and Microsoft Flight Simulator (127GB).

It's unknown yet if console versions will be similar, but the PC version should be a fair guide.

It's also worth noting this is for the standard edition; the deluxe edition may be more with its extra content.

With the climate crisis looming, it's worth considering the environmental cost of these sizeable downloads.

For graphics cards, the minimum requirements are a GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 570, with the GTX 1660 Super or Radeon RX 590 recommended.

Guardians of the Galaxy releases on 26th October across PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles, plus Switch via the cloud.

In our preview of Guardians of the Galaxy, we described the game as "rather messy".
