Forspoken PS5 download size has been revealed, and players are going to need to clear out quite a bit of space from their hard drives.

Forspoken has had quite an interesting road to launch. Despite boasting a high-profile dev team that includes Uncharted writer Amy Hennig, the game’s trailers and recently-released demo have been extremely polarizing. It doesn’t help that PS5’s third-party console exclusives have been quite lackluster, and Square Enix has yet to find much success when it comes to current-gen games beyond Final Fantasy.
Forspoken is a timed console exclusive and will also release on PC.
