We are now less than a month away from the release of Forbidden Horizon West, which means some of the lingering questions fans have had about the title are finally starting to come to light. And while we’ve already seen a handful of new trailers for the game over the past week, we’ve now also learned how much space it will take up on PlayStation 5 once it launches.
Thanks to a new tweet from PlayStation Game Size, which is a Twitter account that tracks backend information that appears on the PlayStation Store, Forbidden Horizon West will end up weighing in at 85.913GB for those in the US. Conversely, the European edition of the game would now be 96.350 GB in total. The reason each version is a bit different in size is that the EU iteration serves a larger market where there are a lot more language options. As such, these additional languages end up adding around 10GB more to the game by comparison.

Although this information certainly gives us a good idea of the space we will need to free up in order to download Forbidden Horizon West on PS5, it’s worth pointing out that this size may not be official yet. The reason is that it is just the base size of the game without any additional updates. Given the frequency of day one patches for nearly every video game, chances are that Forbidden Horizon West will actually be a bit larger than the sizes we’ve currently seen. As such, maybe free up a bit more space on your own SSD to account for that.
In general, Forbidden Horizon West is finally slated to launch next month on February 18 and is coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Be sure to stay tuned for our coverage here at ComicBook.com throughout February as we should have a review. of the game to share with you at some point.
