Baldur’s Gate 3 offers a massive world and story that can be completely manipulated by player choice. Combine this with Baldur’s Gate 3‘s high quality graphics, and it’s no surprise that the game’s file size is so gargantuan.

Needless to say, gamers may want to consider upgrading their PS5’s storage capacity if they haven’t done so already. After all, Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t the only PS5 game with a gigantic file size, and so downloading the game will otherwise likely require players to delete some other games they have on their system.
