Horizon Forbidden West, the sequel to Guerrilla Games' smash hit from 2017, promised to up the ante of Aloy's story in a big way when it releases on 18th February.

Bigger, more immersive, and impressive looking than its predecessor, fans are heavily anticipating what Horizon Forbidden West can bring to the franchise in every aspect, from gameplay to storytelling.

Of course, for those who have pre-ordered Horizon Forbidden West, one more question lingers in their minds -- how much free space will they need to download the game so they can launch it with no delays as soon as it's released?

Fear not, we have your answer right here, so stick around to find out about the install size of Horizon Forbidden West on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Now that you know about Horizon Forbidden West's install size on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, what about when to pre-load it?

Well, we have good news, as you are able to pre-load Horizon Forbidden West now, so that gives you a few days to wait for the download to complete. This is particularly helpful for those with relatively slow connections. 

The PlayStation download speeds have always been inherently slow, with the PS4 continuously criticised for years due to the fact that it had such an unstable way of getting updates and game downloads ready, so it's nice to see that Guerrilla has given fans plenty of time to get ready for the launch of Horizon Forbidden West.
