How large of a file is UE4?

This question has probably been asked several times so my apologies if this thread is pointless. I searched and wasn’t able to find my answer.

How big is UE4 in terms of Gb? I’m just curious because I’m going to purchase it tonight and want to know if I’ll be able to put it on my SSD vs my HDD.

Thanks in advance!

It’s going to vary alot but here are my numbers for Windows 64-bit:

Installer Version: 18.3 GB
Unreal Engine Source Code plus multiple builds: 37.4 GB
Samples (both from market and C++ templates): 21 GB
Game Project: 5 GB (and growing).

That’s not include Visual Studio plus other tools.

If you only have one version installed then it’s smaller.

So the installer is 18GB?
I’m planning on subscribing too but I’m worried that I can’t download a file of that size with my slow internet.
Especially if it’s a direct download.

Do they have a torrent version or something that we can start and pause anytime?

It’s not an installer. You download a small client side launcher which will download what you need incrementally - you don’t have to do it all at once.

Oh that’s good to hear. Many thanks!
