Tales of Arise

The massive file sizes most games have these days has become something of a nuisance for people these days, as games continue to grow larger and more demanding where storage space is concerned. The PS5, however, has taken some nifty steps forward in this area, with its impression compression having resulted in significantly smaller sizes for games even when compared to the last-gen versions of those same games.

We’ve seen it happen with several games in the last few months, and the next to follow in line is Bandai Namco’s upcoming action RPG Tales of Arise. Pre-loading for the game is now live, and as shared on Twitter by @Helencrownsjr, on the PS4, Tales of Arise has a download size of 57.247 GB, while its size on the PS5 is smaller by a whole 20 GB- 37.201 GB, to be precise. That’s a drastic reduction, and sure, a lot of it will be game-specific and specific to how Bandai Namco has handled the game, but the system-level compression deserves to be praised nonetheless.

Tales of Arise launches on September 10 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
