Diablo III File Size For All Platforms [Newest Version]

How often were you looking for a download size of a game that you wish to play but only managed to find its install size? These two are always different because the download size comes in a smaller and compressed package, which later gets larger once the game installs. The same is true for Diablo 3, whose install size is nearly two times larger than its download size. So how do you find how large the download size is? Well, you can either keep searching online or read on and learn all about it.

What Is The Download Size Of Diablo III?

The download size of Diablo 3 goes from 15.2 GB to over 27 GB, depending on the platform. Take a look at the table with the download size for each available device.

Games Are Getting Older, And So Are We

When you recall that Diablo III is ten years old, you realize how

time is slipping away. So many things have changed in the gaming universe since then, such as Blizzard Entertainment's comedown and later acquisition by Microsoft. But one thing hasn't changed at all, and that's the legendary status of the Diablo series.


Diablo III was a fitting sequel to the iconic Diablo II, and then when everyone was expecting the fourth part after years of waiting, Blizzard employees said the infamous words "Do you guys not have phones?" in 2018 E3 and shattered the illusions of all the fans. The gamers were furious and for a good reason. Instead of announcing Diablo IV, Blizzard Entertainment has announced Diablo Immortal entirely out of the blue. So instead of a sequel, they were making a free-to-play mobile game, an unambitious cash cow. Fortunately, it was only one year later when they fixed this mistake (and even apologized) by announcing the Diablo IV, which is set to release in 2023 at the earliest.

And now that Microsoft has purchased Activision Blizzard, gamers can be optimistic and expect an up to scratch sequel in the form of Diablo IV. Undoubtedly, this acquisition is great news for gamers, considering how Activision Blizzard lost their former status as a company that actually cared about gamers. So if you never had a chance to play any of the Diablo games, we strongly advise you to start right now, and if you don't mind prehistoric graphics, begin with the first part - you won't regret it that's for sure.
