While we just got a healthy dose of Ghost of Tsushima gameplay a few days ago that featured combat, exploration, crafting and more we now know something about the game that wasn’t discussed there, and that’s the Ghost of Tsushima file size — or at least the minimum size you need allocated in your PS4 HDD to play it.
The official PlayStation Store listing of the action title pegs the minimum Ghost of Tsushima file size needed at 50GB, which means the actual game itself can be anywhere from 25GB to 30GB give or take.
Aside from that, here’s the official description from the PSN Store:
In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan. As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands as one of the last surviving members of his clan. He is resolved do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima.
• In War-Torn Tsushima, Ancient Beauty Endures: In this open-world action adventure, you’ll roam vast countrysides and expansive terrain to encounter rich characters, discover ancient landmarks, and uncover the hidden beauty of Tsushima.
• The Rise of the Ghost: In his quest to reclaim Tsushima, Jin must seek support from old friends and new unlikely allies. He must break away from tradition, become a new kind of warrior, and protect what’s left of his home at all costs.
• Mud, Blood, and Steel: Challenge opponents with your katana for an immersive samurai combat experience, master the bow to eliminate distant threats, and develop stealth tactics to disorient and ambush enemies with surprise attacks.
Thankfully, if it is indeed 50GB, that’s not that bad in terms of disk space size, no? Then again, we should expect patches to add to the overal file size, so we can’t say for sure.
Ghost of Tsushima will be out this July 17 exclusively on the PS4.
