The 3GB pak file contains raw WWise audio. This can be packed with msc(tak)+razor.

Most of the game data is stored uncompressed, there is only an incredibly tiny amount of mermaid streams so using any precompressor will have little impact on the end result. These handful of mermaid streams and the start of UCAS archives are becoming more common in Unreal Engine 5 games.

The director's commentary video is KB2i so it can be packed / unpacked with cls-bpk.dll. Little point in using XTool for this task since bpk unpacks the video without data errors and there is no opportunity for multithreading.

The remaining videos are KB2n which is unsupported by bpk (the XTool configuration sutomatically filters these videos). I used the latest BCM (v2.03 at time of writing) by Ilya Muravyov after srep to squeeze a slight bit extra compression.

My size was 12.4GB for:

Primary: srep+lolz
Secondary: msc+razor
Tertiary: srep+bcm
Quaternary: bpk

And the Director's Commentary can be separated to give 10.5GB minimum size.
hello, if you don't mind, could you share the details of what files are included in the first, second and so on lists?

pck is sound file (riff wavefmt). You can extract with wavextractor or quickbms+wwise.bms, then encode with wemtool (will give you 10mb on this file, 117mb -> 107mb).

cak files hydra/leviathan. xtool plugin is required.

@danziel123
The Method I used for Horizon Forbidden was xtool:kraken+srep+lolz on .core files
@71.8 Compression for a total size of 87.3 GB over 2 data files and 1 optional (digital extras)

-im sure there is a better method but i tried many

it took me several hours to compress as its a HUGE game..

Good Luck
