As per the latest version of Genshin Impact, 3.8, which was released in July 2023, the game takes up the following amounts of storage based on your platform of choice:

Relative to their platforms, each of these are massive, even if it's becoming more and more common for video games on PC and console to reach upwards of 100 GB.

For a mobile game, 20.58 GB is an incredibly large install, but considering the size and scale of Genshin Impact in 2023, it's a miracle they kept it that low.

Mobile phones are getting more and more storage with the release of each new generation, but for most people, you'll likely need to clear some space off of your device to make room for Genshin Impact.

For those who are wondering if you can make the installation size of Genshin Impact smaller, there are options in-game that allow you to remove files from the game that aren't necessary - though you'll have to download them first.

An example of this is the option to remove voice files for the languages you don't use, which can reduce the size by several GB.

It's definitely worth having a look through the settings to optimise the game's file size and see which content you don't need to have installed. To do so, once you've launched Genshin Impact, follow these steps:

  • Open the Paimon Menu.
  • Go to 'Settings', then click 'Language'.
  • Click 'Manage Voice-Over Language'.
  • Uninstall the audio packs you do not need.

That's our breakdown of Genshin Impact's storage space requirements on take on PC, mobile and PlayStation.
