What is the download size of the Fortnite Battle Royale on PC/PS4/Xbox One/Mobile?
It is 2021, and each new game that come out requires you to download dozens or even hundreds of gigabytes of data, and the size of Fortnite isn’t an exception. In this article you can find out the file size of Fortnite Save the World and Battle Royale on PC, PS4 Xbox One and other consoles as well as on Android. Also do not forget to familiarize yourself with the system requirements of Fortnite.
Fortnite Battle Royale file size on PC
To find out how much space you need on your computer, you need to understand what you want to play. Fortnite consists of 2 modes:
- Battle Royale + Main Fortnite Files weigh around 16-17 GB
- Additional high resolution textures also weigh around 16 GB
- PvE “Save the World” mode weighs 1.66 GB
An explanation is needed here, the PvE mode itself weighs 7 GB, but the Save the World cannot be installed without the main files. That is why it is necessary to add the Save the World files to the main Fortnite files. By doing so, we’ll get 18.5 GB.
Creative mode is not a separate mode and is part of Battle Royale, so if you want to play only in creative mode, you just need to have 17GB of free space on your hard drive or SSD.
It is worth noting that Fortnite on PC and other platforms is constantly updating and not only the Fortnite map increases in the size of the playing area, but the size of the game’s files that you need to download grows, as well as the size of the free storage you need. Therefore, an optimal amount of free space is around 40-50 GB for all the files you might need.
Fortnite Battle Royale file size on consoles
Consoles can’t expand their internal storage size as easy as a PC can, so the size of Fortnite files on PS4/5 and Xbox One/S/X is much less. Here are the approximate sizes of Fortnite on different consoles:
- Fortnite on Xbox weighs 20 GB
- PS4 Fortnite file size is around 10 GB
Fortnite Battle Royale file size on mobile
Mobile phones, although they have a resolution comparable to that of a computer, but the specification of the PC level is not yet required. It is from here and a significant change in size, compared with stationary devices.
The version for iOS is, unfortunately, currently unavailable due to Fortnite and Apple’s conflict.
The game client takes 500-600 MB, but you will need to download additional files that weigh much more – around 8 GB. You will also need the Epic Games app, which will take around 300 MB.
Fortnite Save the World is unavailable on mobile devices, so the size of free storage you will need is approximately 0 GB.
And if you have not downloaded the Fortnite on Android, then be sure to try. There is no Save the World on mobile devices, but you can get a fresh experience of playing Battle Royale or Creative modes.
