Nowadays after years of updates, League of Legends has bloated to around 22 GB. Well the download size of League of Legends is only around 9 GB, but when it’s unpacked it’s around 22 GB.
So if you’re downloading the game make sure you have at least this much space available. If or when you do. Head over to the official League of Legends website to download the game. When it’s done you can enjoy all the glory that is League of Legends.
Heads up though: you can expect even bigger patches to take up even more space on your hard drive. So even if you have just enough space right now make sure to clear some for future updates.
If you’re curious to know. Back in the day when League of Legends came out it was required that you have at least 8 GB of free space at minimum. Riot Games recommended 12 GB, presumably for you to have space for future updates. It’s interesting to see just how much League of Legends and games in general have ballooned in size since their first releases.
