Story Highlights

  • Atomic Heart is available to pre-load on Xbox Series consoles right now.
  • But, the game has a massive size of 78 GB, hinting at its hyper-realism and open-world environment.
  • The game will launch on PC alongside current-gen and next-gen consoles on February 23, 2023.

Many amazing FPS games coming out in 2023 and one of the most exciting among them is Atomic Heart. Set in an alternate Soviet Union, the game has drawn heavy comparisons to FPS titles like Bioshock. However, early impressions of the FPS are telling fans to expect much more and further hyping us up.

Now, the pre-load of Atomic Heart is available to download on the Xbox Series console. It will take a hefty space of 78.66 GB on your Xbox console but it is fair considering it is open-world. This pre-load is a relief as this means Atomic Heart will not be delayed once again.

Arguably, shooting games comprise the biggest and most profitable genre in gaming. With franchises like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, Battlefield, Doom, and new ones forming every year, it rules the gaming world. The introduction of Battle Royale Games like Fortnite and Apex Legends has just increased the popularity of shooting games.

Like most years, 2023 is looking like a big year for first-person shooter games. Dead Island 2, the System Shock Remake, and Redfall are all releasing this year. With the recent news of Call of Duty not skipping 2023 also coming out, players will feast on major AAA shooting games.

Out of all these titles, probably the most interesting one is Atomic Heart developed by Mundfish. It takes place in the 1955 Soviet Union, but that of an alternate reality. Artificial Intelligence rules the world and you have to combat robots while going insane, which sounds really fun.

There has been a lot of hype around Atomic Heart due to the role-playing elements it contains. Mundfish’s FPS game is going to be open-world, making it a very engrossing shooting title. And, the download size of the FPS backs up its open-world design.

Atomic Heart has started pre-loading on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. If you have bought the game, you can download it right now on your consoles. But, it might take a bit of time due to the action RPGs file size.

You will have to free up 78.66 GB of space to download Atomic Heart on your Xbox console. The game has a hefty size and is on par with the latest releases in RPG gaming. It even beat out the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy in this aspect, which is one of the biggest open-world adventures launching this year.

The upcoming Avalance Software game was only 76 GB on the Xbox Series consoles. Atomic Heart is a bit bigger than this, but the game’s hyper-realistic graphics probably play a role in that. Fans can see in the trailer how the game has made full use of Unreal Engine 4.

In addition, this file size is much less than FPS titles like Call of Duty Modern Warfare. The Activision game was a whopping 103 GB when it came out, so Atomic Heart is doing pretty well for itself. A bigger file size is promising and we will hope it means the overall length of the FPS is dozens of hours.

Atomic Heart releases on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC this month. It will hit the stores on February 21, 2023, for all of these platforms. Will the game be a success or a flop? Tell us in the comments below.
