Forza Motorsport Preloading Is Live, And The File Size Is Gigantic

On Series X, the file size is more than 130 GB.


Microsoft's big new racing game, Forza Motorsport, has "gone gold" and preloading for the title is now live. Preloading might be a good idea, because the file size is enormous.

In a blog post, Microsoft revealed the file sizes, and the game weighs in at 133 GB on Xbox Series X and 100 GB on Xbox Series S. Windows 10 and 11 PC users can expect a file size of around 119 GB, while Steam users will see a download size of 108 GB and an installed file size of 118 GB.

Everyone who has preordered Forza Motorsport or is subscribed to Game Pass can now begin preloading the game. Steam preloading begins later. The game doesn't unlock, however, until October 5 for Premium Edition and Premium add-on users, and October 10 for everyone else.

Microsoft also revealed the full list of Forza Motorsport achievements. There are 57 in all for a total of 1,000 Gamerscore, and players can unlock them by doing basic stuff like completing their first race, beating rivals, and leveling up their car over time.

Forza Motorsport will launch without a number of major features from past games, including split-screen support. Microsoft's Phil Spencer said this was a creative decision.
