Star Wars Jedi: Survivor wants to sprawl itself all over your hard drive

That’s no moon…

EA has revealed the minimum and recommended requirements for the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Unsurprisingly, you’ll need some reasonable meat on your PC’s bones in order to… what the hey? What the gosh darn dickens!?

According to this, you’re going to need 144GB set aside for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Why?

To put this into perspective, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (the new one) wants 125GB of digital territory. The original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (the new one) wants 175GB of space, and that’s largely because it includes Call of Duty: Warzone. Ark: Survival Evolved, with all its goodies and expansions, takes up somewhere around 400GB. Hitman 3 (the new one) tells me it wants 72.35 giga-acres of hard drive. Doom Eternal is at 89GB. Finally, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order tells me 55.92GB.

It’s not the biggest, but it’s also bizarrely huge for a single-player-only game that isn’t fully open-world. It’s built in the Unreal 4 Engine, and it looks snazzy, but I’m not sure I want it to desecrate 144GB of my hard drive.

Here are the rest of the specs, as found on EA’s site:

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • RAM: 8Gb
  • CPU Features: 4 core / 8 threads
  • CPU AMD: Ryzen 5 1400
  • GPU AMD: Radeon RX 580
  • GPU Features: DX12, 8Gb VRAM
  • Storage: 155Gb

PC Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • RAM: 16Gb
  • CPU Features: 4 core / 8 threads
  • CPU AMD: Ryzen 5 5600X
  • GPU AMD: RX 6700 XT
  • GPU Features: DX12, 8Gb VRAM
  • Storage: 155Gb SSD

It wasn’t so long ago that I just left most of my games installed because they didn’t make a dent in my expansive hard drive. Now we live in a world where having a full terabyte of vast, open space means you can install a handful of games. I guess on the other hand, my internet speed is faster, so maybe it’s just a matter of changing my habits.
