If you’re thinking about getting Fortnite on PS4, you might be concerned about how much storage it will take up on your console.
Whether you’re using an older PS4 or the new slim model, you can rest assured that Fortnite will not take up more than 2 GB of space, which is great news! Here’s why.
The good news about Fortnite on PS4
Fortnite is a relatively small game when it comes to filing size. The base game installation is only around 20 GB. However, once you start downloading additional content, like the Battle Pass and new cosmetic items, the file size will start to increase.
If you’re tight on storage space, you can always delete some of the older content that you don’t play as often. You’ll also want to make sure your data files are stored on your PlayStation 4 hard drive.
Doing so will free up valuable space in your external storage device, which is usually more expensive than the built-in drive. You can also invest in an external hard drive or get a larger hard drive for your console if you want more room for games or media files.
Can I move my data from one PS4 to another if needed?
Whether you’re upgrading to a newer model or simply need to free up some space, you may be wondering how to transfer your Fortnite data from one PS4 to another. The good news is that it’s relatively easy to do. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get it done. First, make sure both consoles are plugged in and connected to the internet.
Next, sign into the new console with your account (just as if you were playing on it for the first time), once signed in, go to Settings > Account Management > Sign In Methods. Select Add a New Sign In Method and select Saved Data in System Storage. Select this option and then choose Next, followed by selecting the desired account profile.
You’ll then see all of the saved games on the system storage. From there, just click and drag whichever game saves you want to move over onto the folder icon next to New System and wait until they upload before moving onto your next game save file. Once everything has been transferred over, disconnect both consoles from power for 10 seconds, turn them back on again and play!
There are a few ways to delete your data, but keep in mind
There are a few ways to delete your data, but keep in mind that if you want to play Fortnite again, you’ll have to start from scratch.
The first way is to go into your PlayStation 4’s Settings menu and delete the application from your system. This will remove all progress and data associated with Fortnite.
If you want to keep your data, but free up some storage, you can also delete unused assets and images from the game’s install folder. Just find your download file for Fortnite, then click Uninstall under it. After clicking this option, a pop-up window will ask you where to store the uninstaller (if it isn’t already).
Click OK when this pops up and wait for the process to finish before restarting your console. Once you restart, head back into your games library and look for an entry called Install Package Files. Install this package file again after deleting some of the other files mentioned above.
If you’re thinking about downloading Fortnite on your PS4, you might be wondering how much storage space it will take up. The good news is that Fortnite isn’t a very large game, and it shouldn’t take up too much space on your console. However, because the game is constantly updating with new content, you may find that it starts to take up more and more space over time.
