F1 22 Game Preload Size on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation

F1 22 is available to pre-load right now on PC (via Origin, Steam, and Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4/5, and Xbox One/ Series X/ Series S. On Steam, the game size for F1 22 is around 46.19 GB while it’s around 46.57 GB on Xbox.

The game size comes as a surprise for being under 50 GB as the previous installment was well over 80 GB in size. This might mean that not everything is included in the game right away and players will have to download additional elements on Day 1.

It could also mean that Codemasters have found a way to compress the game much better. We’ll find that out this Friday.
