You may want to know how much storage Genshin Impact takes on PC and mobile before dedicating yourself to this massive anime-style action RPG from Chinese devs MiHoYo. Genshin Impact has a games-as-a-service model, meaning it receives frequent updates that add new content to the main game endgame portion.

With all the updates over the past five years, ranging in size and content, the game's install size has grown since it first debuted. So, you may want to know, how much storage does Genshin Impact take on PC and mobile?

As of version 3.2 of Genshin Impact, which was released in November 2022, the game takes up 72.5 GB on PC and 17.9 GB on mobile. Relative to their platforms, both of these are massive, even though it's becoming more and more common for video games on PC and console to reach upwards of 100 GB.

For a mobile game, 17.9 GB is a freakishly 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 need to clear a lot of space off your device to make room for Genshin.

For those who are wondering if you can make the installation 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.

That's our breakdown of the question, how much storage does Genshin Impact take on PC and mobile? Now you know it's pretty big on both platforms, but there are some ways to reduce the size marginally.

We also cover the Genshin Impact 3.4 release date and time, so you can be ready for the latest update.
