Today we will see how much resources it takes to download and install the Fortnite game on Windows PC and Mac. 

Here you will know how much space you have to devote to Fortnite and above all you will know in advance if you need to remove other apps, games or programs from your PC to install Fortnite.

Without losing unnecessary time, therefore, let’s go straight to the point and see how much space and resorces occupies the download and installation of Fortnite on Windows PC or Mac.

Fortnite size for Windows PC and Mac

The game does not weigh a lot, but considering that it is a title also available for smartphones, the size is not excessively reduced.

In fact, by default the download and installation of Fortnite requires 18GB. The size may vary based on patches and updates released by the developers.

To be more precise, downloading the game requires 9.5GB. But once you have downloaded the game, you have to install it. And the space required increases.

In particular, once it is installed, Fortnite takes up about 18GB on the hard drive. 

As I anticipated, not many, but I expected something less sincerely.

Some info on Fortnite

Fortnite is the Epic title that sees the software house compete with the open world cooperative survival. It is also the first title created using the Unreal Engine 4.

Settings and characters in cartoon style are the background to a game structure divided into two phases. During the day, players must collect components to build a shelter, during the night they must defend themselves against monsters in the created shelter.

So they come to mix strategic mechanics, similar to those of the sub-genus tower defense, with action shooter phases in which we will have to defend ourselves from the onslaught of zombies and monsters of various kinds, using various types of weapons.

The Fortnite campaign can be faced together with friends thanks to a cooperative multiplayer mode, while the contents of the game will be enriched thanks to the release of periodic updates to expand the open world created by Epic Games.
