Horizon fans who haven’t added an M.2 SSD to their PlayStation 5 consoles yet may want to think about doing that, as the next-gen version of Aloy’s latest adventure will require a significant amount of free storage.

As revealed by PlayStation Game Size, an account that tracks the file sizes for upcoming PlayStation games, Horizon Forbidden West will require a whopping 86 GB of space on PS5, with the European version weighing in at an even larger 96 GB. This is nearly 15 percent of the PS5’s built-in 667 GB of usable storage.

The size of Horizon Forbidden West’s Japanese and PlayStation 4 versions are still unknown, but PlayStation Game Size goes on to suggest that there will be a day-one patch, resulting in an even bigger download on launch day. PlayStation gamers will be able to pre-load Horizon Forbidden West beginning on February 11, a week ahead of the sequel’s official launch on Friday, February 18.

Some of the PlayStation games with the biggest file sizes at the moment include Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which could take up over 200 GB, and Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, which weighs in at 170.5 GB.
