Guardians Of The Galaxy PC Requires 150GB Free Space

The system requirements on Steam show a download size comparable to Call of Duty Warzone

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will require a hefty amount of storage on PC. [Update: It turns out the situation isn't so extreme as we first thought, as Guardians of the Galaxy only requires 80GB.]

As Video Game Chronicle noted, system requirements for the Square Enix title were released on Steam. The game requires 150 GB of free space. As a point of comparison, Call of Duty: Warzone takes up 175 GB, Microsoft Flight Simulator is also 150 GB, and Marvel's Avengers, the brand's other flagship video game, recommends an install size of 110 GB.

In short, this is a sizable install, comparable to some of the largest games of recent years. It is, of course, difficult to deduce from this information any concrete details of the game itself. What it does mean though, is that the next generation is here. Higher quality textures and higher resolutions have a cost, both in computing power and file size.

The full system requirements are below.

Minimum:

    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows® 10 64 bit Build 1803
    • Processor: AMD Ryzen™ 5 1400 / Intel® Core™ i5-4460
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon™ RX 570
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Storage: 150 GB available space
