  • Xbox Series X|S - 6.4 GB
  • PS4 - 5.419 GB
  • PS5 - 3.922GB

Obviously, the SSD's of next-generation consoles help with the download size, as you can see from the comparison above.

We do also know that Season 7 is introducing new graphical features to the PC version of the game, but it doesn't seem like that had too great of an impact on the size.

Of course, Epic Games releases new updates every couple of weeks, so you'll have to download more throughout Season 7.
