It gives you time to download a big game.
Days Gone, the game that Sony hopes will launch their next big franchise, is coming at the end of the week, with reviews set to go up the day before. For those going digital, there’s some good news. It looks like the game is now up for pre-load on the PlayStation store.
Digital pre-order buyers definitely will want to take advantage of that, because Days Gone is a big game. I’m not just referring to the open world scope, either- the size of the download is quite significant. The game’s initial install size will be a whopping 67 GBs, and then an addition 17 GBs will be needed for a day one patch that is live now. You’ve going to need the extra time, so make sure your PS4 has the extra space, too, because in total the game will take up a lot of space.
Days Gone releases April 26th exclusively for PlayStation 4. Check out a recent video exploring the world of the game while you boot up that pre-load.
