Forza Motorsport is finally coming to Xbox Game Pass, but Xbox players will need to prepare for a huge Forza Motorsport download if they want to play.

Turn 10 Studios’ Forza Motorsport is here and Xbox players looking forward to hitting the track will need to clear out quite a bit of storage space on their Xbox Series X (or Xbox Series S) console. We know that might not be what you want to hear, but the Forza Motorsport download size is huge – whether you’re playing via Xbox Game Pass or otherwise.

Turn 10 Studios is in the habit of delivering Xbox players some of the best racing games out there and it looks set to continue that positive trend with Forza Motorsport. Alongside Starfield, this is easily one of the best Xbox Game Pass games to join the subscription service in recent months, either way. However, it’s shaping up to be one of the biggest too; with the Forza Motorsport release date now here, you need to know how much storage space you’re going to need to sacrifice to play this game.

The Forza Motorsport download size is at least 132 GB on Xbox Series X and 97 GB on Xbox Series S. This file size is based on pre-load information and subject to change should a ‘Day One Patch’ update arrive on October 10.

We know the Forza Motorsport tracks list is packed with iconic circuits, and the Forza Motorsport cars list has more than enough motors for you to check out, but this is still an absolutely huge game. With the Xbox Series X only shipping with 802 GB of useable storage, and the Xbox Series S only coming with 364 GB of useable storage, you’re going to be sacrificing a huge chunk of it to download and play Forza Motorsport. It might be one of the best Xbox Series X games of the year, but that’s still a lot – right?

When you think about all the other upcoming Xbox games, and the full list of Xbox Game Pass games at your fingertips, you’re going to need a lot of storage space – especially after downloading Forza Motorsport. Thankfully, we have something that may help; you can check out the latest offers on all the best Xbox expansion cards right here.

Sure, Forza Motorsport is joining Gran Turismo 7 in removing this useful feature, but it also looks like one of the best games on consoles when it comes to graphical fidelity; we can only imagine that this is why the file size is so big. You should check out the latest deals on the best Xbox headsets, though, if you want to take full advantage of this game’s soundscape. Roaring engines have never sounded so good.
