‘Halo 5: Guardians’ To Take Up 55GB Of Hard Drive Space

Halo 5: Guardians

The next game in the Halo franchise, titled Halo 5: Guardians, is set to be released next week on October 27th. If you’re one of the many fans of the series eagerly awaiting its arrival, you may just want to clear up a little bit of hard drive space if you’re planning to grab a digital copy. It’s being reported that, in total, Guardians will be a massive 55GB in size.

This is a bit of a shock, because these games aren’t generally known for being huge—most include a short single-player campaign and however many multiplayer maps for online play. For comparison, Halo 3 was 5.7GB; Halo: Reach was 6.6GB; Halo 3: ODST was 6.7GB; Halo 4 was 7.2GB; Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary was 7.5GB. The day one update for Guardians will be 9GB all by itself, bringing the total size to 55GB. The only thing close to that is Halo: The Master Chief Collection, featuring the re-mastered versions of the first two games along with Halo 3, Halo 4, the digital series Halo: Nightfall, and access to the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, which weighs in at almost 63GB. For comparison with another recent game, the MMO The Elder Scrolls Online was reported to be 65GB and actually ended up being about 58GB, at least on Xbox.


A mysterious and unstoppable force threatens the galaxy while the Master Chief is missing and his loyalty questioned. Experience the most dramatic Halo story to date in a 4-player cooperative epic that spans three worlds.


Warzone is a brand new, massive-scale multiplayer mode that supports 24-player battles with both friendly and enemy AI constantly dropping in to mix up the experience. It’s nonstop action when you confront Spartans, Covenant, and Forerunners, all while trying to complete a variety of objectives.


In Halo 5: Guardians, the Arena multiplayer mode represents Halo’s established legacy of pure, skill-based 4-vs-4 competitive combat.

If you’re not bothered by having to download something this huge to your hard drive, the amount of GBs should be a hint at just how big developer 343 Industries and publisher Microsoft are trying to go with the latest release.

You can pre-order Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One (physical copy l digital download code) now.
