- Tekken 8’s file size is smaller on the PS5 version compared to the PC version, with approximately 80 GB of space required on PS5 and a whopping 100 GB on PC.
- The large storage requirement of Tekken 8 can be attributed to factors such as HD textures for detailed character models and stages, as well as a potentially larger single-player story mode and other game modes.
- Players may need to reorganize their console’s game library to accommodate Tekken 8, but it is unlikely to cause installation problems, as other AAA games like Mortal Kombat 1 require a minimum of 100 GB on PS5.
Bandai Namco revealed the file size for Tekken 8‘s PS5 version, which will take up less space than the PC version will. Tekken 8 is one of the most anticipated games to launch in 2024, following Street Fighter 6, Mortal Kombat 1, and other impressive fighting games that were released in 2023. Bandai Namco’s eighth round of the King of Iron Fist tournament boasts an impressive 32-character roster, featuring returning characters like Jun Kazama and Leroy Smith, along with brand-new fighters like Azucena and Reina.
With Tekken 8 being a next-gen AAA game, the system requirements for the fighter have also been bumped up for PC users. For example, one of last year’s most notable fighting games, Street Fighter 6, required 60 GB of available space on PC in order to play the game. Tekken 8 has a similarly massive file size, though different sizes can be seen depending on which platform gamers are playing the game on.
Tekken 8 Reportedly Removing Controversial Feature Ahead Of Launch
A controversial Tekken 8 feature is being modified ahead of launch, following concerns that it could cause major issues in certain players.
According to the Twitter account PlayStationSize, Tekken 8 requires approximately 80 GB of free space available on the PS5. This is a 20 GB difference when compared to Tekken 8‘s PC version, which requires a whopping 100 GB of storage in order to play. As of this writing, it’s unclear if the Xbox Series X/S version of the game will also only require 80 GB of storage. Players can preload Tekken 8 on PS5 starting on January 23, 2024, at 11 PM UTC.
Tekken 8 File Sizes
- PC Version: ~100 GB
- PS5 Version: ~80 GB
- Xbox Series X/S Version: ~80-100 GB
Tekken 8‘s large storage requirement could be due to a number of reasons. Aside from the usual HD textures required for the game’s detailed character models and stages, the game’s large size could be due to its single-player story mode. Tekken 8‘s story mode is looking to be larger than the prior entry’s, promising a longer playtime and potentially more elaborate cutscenes. The other game modes could also be a contributing factor to the title’s size. Why it takes up less space on the PS5 is unclear, but it’s likely due to Bandai Namco compressing certain aspects of Tekken 8 for this version’s release.
For reference, Tekken 7‘s file size was around 76 GB on Steam, uncompressed. After compression, the storage requirement becomes around 60 GB. Players will likely be able to install the game on their console without problems, as other AAA games like Mortal Kombat 1 require a minimum of 100 GB on PS5. Regardless, if players have a lot of games on PS5, they might need to reorganize their console’s game library in order to install Tekken 8.
Bandai Namco’s Tekken 8 will be the franchise’s debut entry on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and the fighting game is built in Unreal Engine 5. The story revolves around Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama’s relationship.
