Gran Turismo 7 Is The Largest PS5 Launch Title To Date With 110 GB Install

89 Gigs excluding Day One patch.

February is proving to be a hell of a month for games. A month that has been stacked with back-to-back hard hitters. This includes long-awaited titles like Elden Ring, Dying Light 2, and Horizon Forbidden West. As well as certain personal titles for me, particularly Sifu. After Sony‘s big hitter for February comes another huge title from them. Gran Turismo 7, is set to launch on March 4

The game’s initial install size has been shown to be 89 GB, which is without a Day one patch. It also has to be mentioned that the PlayStation Direct page for Gran Turismo 7 recommends a download size of a minimum of 110 GB, making it the largest PS5 launch title to date. The continuation of Aloy‘s journey in Forbidden West is also expected to be on a similar scale with a download size of 85 GB.

This is also keeping in mind that the PS5 uses a compression system to lower the download size for games. So, it can be assumed that the PS4 version is likely going to eclipse the aforementioned numbers. 

The game supposedly includes a whopping 420 cars along with 110 tracks along a dynamic weather system on release. So fans can expect to spend a ton of time playing GT7

Another curious aspect to note is that the size of the game generally lands on a similar ballpark as Gran Turismo Sport. GT Sport was around 108 GB after receiving numerous updates. The game initially launched with a size of 40 gigs so it’s going to be interesting and scary how much GT7 is going to weigh in post-launch. 

It is also interesting to see how Gran Turismo 7 is going to fare alongside its more arcade, open-world competitor Forza Horizon 5. FH 5 is already one of the highest-rated racing games of the past few years with a Metascore of 91. The game was also a massive commercial hit garnering hundreds of millions of players within a week of its release. Many critics have also cited the game as a new benchmark for open-world racers. 

Gran Turismo 7 comes out March 4th on the PlayStation 4 and 5, with a preload on February 25th.
