West horizon forbidden It’s easily one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games of 2022, but fans planning to buy it may want to clear out some storage space, first. Apparently, the game will require 85,913 GB in North America and 96,350 in other regions. The difference can be attributed to different language requirements in the EU. These numbers were shared on Twitter by @PlaystationSize, and they predate the day one patch. The person who manages the account notes that these requirements can sometimes drop from 10 to 20 GB, and these numbers have not been officially confirmed by PlayStation, so readers should take this with a grain of salt.
