Guide to Reduce Game Size



Like many other games hzd will install language-pack files of all supported languages.

By following these simple steps you can free 11+ GB of disc space.

Step 1

Open the game folder of HZD:

  • .../Steam/common/Horizon Zero Dawn

Step 2

Open the Packed_DX12-folder

Here you will find many idx & bin-files. These are the language-pack files.

Example (English language-pack files):

  • DLC1_English.idx.
  • DLC1_English.bin.
  • Initial_English.idx.
  • Initial_English.bin.
  • Remainder_English.idx.
  • Remainder_English.bin.

Each language-pack consists of 6 files.

Important:

  • DLC1.bin, Initial.bin & Remainder.bin r crucial game-files.
  • If u delete these files when u proceed with step 3, the game will not run anymore.

Step 3

Delete all the other language-pack files.

U can delete 31 files & free 14+ GB of disk space.

Important:

  • If u verify the game-cache the files will be restored.
  • Future updates may also restore these files.

However

  • Update v1.07 did also not restore the files
  • Update v1.06 did also not restore the files
  • Update v1.05 did also not restore the files
  • Update v1.04 did also not restore the files.
  • Update v1.03 did also not restore the files.
  • Update v1.02 did also not restore the files.
  • Update v1.01 did not restore the files.
