Apex Legends game file size on PC
Installing Apex Legends requires around 74.05 GB of storage space on your PC or laptop. This means that you can’t enjoy the game on a low-end PC with relatively low disk space.
If you’re running low on storage then you can try deleting some of the larger files in your system, including other games that are already installed. You can also run a system cleaner to remove files that are taking up space.
Once you have enough space, you can try downloading Apex Legends. This can take an estimated time of 12 to 14 hours, but this can vary based on the speed of your Internet connection. You might get it done quicker if your network is fast.
Apex Legends game file size on PlayStation
As of version 1.82, the Apex Legends takes up around 69.82 GB on PlayStations. You’ll be able to access the game when approximately 28.95 GB of the file has completed downloading.
However, you’ll need to wait for the rest of the installation before you can access network features and play online. Installation of the base game will probably take a few minutes or an hour.

You can keep the download going on your system while you play something else. If you feel like doing something else then just make sure that your system isn’t powered off when leaving the room.
As with PlayStation, the installation time could range between one hour or several depending on the speed of your network connection. You can speed it up by making sure that no other devices or apps are downloading updates or other large files.
Apex Legends game file size on Nintendo Switch
You only need around 24.85 GB of free space to install the battle royale title in your Switch. The Apex Legends game file is much smaller on the Nintendo Switch than it is on other platforms.
The success of Apex Legends since its launch has been spectacular, so it came as no surprise that fans asked the devs to bring the battle royale to other platforms. It finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.
