Honkai Star Rail is a pretty big game, but it’s not really any bigger than any of the other major titles that miHoYo has released. If you’re used to playing games like Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd, then you probably already have a good idea of how much storage you’ll need for Honkai Star Rail.

As you’re probably already aware, Honkai Star Rail is available on five total platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, iOS, Android, and PC. This game’s storage requirements will change depending on what platform you’re playing it on.

Here are all of the minimum storage requirements for every platform that Honkai Star Rail is offered on:

PC

If you want to play Honkai Star Rail on PC, then you’ll need to make sure you have at least 15 GB of storage space available. You may need to free up more space as you play through the game and create save files, however!

Android/iOS

Out of all of the available platforms, Honkai Star Rail takes up the least amount of space on mobile devices. Android and iOS players will need to make sure that they have at least 8 GB of free space on their mobile devices prior to downloading the game.

PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5

Honkai Star Rail isn’t being offered quite yet on PlayStation consoles, so not much is currently known about its system requirements. However, it’s estimated that players will need to have anywhere from 20 to 25 GB of free space prior to downloading it.
