Far Cry New Dawn is due to release in less than a week’s time, on the 15th of February. If you’re planning on getting the latest instalment of the Far Cry franchise, then you might be wondering how much disk space the game is going to take up. After all, it is more of a spin-off title than a core entry in the series. As it turns out, the game will take up significantly less space than Far Cry 5.

By comparison, Far Cry 5’s Xbox One version is listed as 46.44 GB on the Microsoft Store.
