We've already talked about all the incredible games releasing in August, as well as how much it will cost you to play the top releases, all that remains is to know how much hard drive space you'll need to download the digital playgrounds. We'll cover the console versions as the games release, and thanks to Steam, we already have the PC version download sizes.
Surprisingly, the biggest download for August is a DLC, and if you want to play half of the games below you'll probably need an external hard drive. I've listed the games from biggest to smallest download size.
August PC game download sizes
- XCOM 2 War of the Chosen DLC: 65GB
- ARK: Survival Evolved: 40GB
- F1 2017: 40GB
- Agents of Mayhem: 38GB
- Lawbreakers: 35GB

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is my number one choice to play this month, and according to the latest news from Ninja Theory, it will take about eight hours to play through the game, and require “an absolute beast” of a PC to play in 4K.
