Red Dead Redemption 2 Pre-Load PS4 PlayStation 4

In case you hadn't noticed, Red Dead Redemption 2, probably the biggest game of the year, is out in just over a week's time. The highly anticipated sequel is racing towards us on horseback, and we can't wait to get stuck in. However, the game's giant file size has been well documented, so you'll want to get downloading it as soon as you can, right?

Well, good news: Rockstar has confirmed that pre-loading of its open world Western will become available on 19th October - that's this Friday.

That gives you plenty of time to download the nearly 100GB game ahead of its 26th October release date. If you've pre-ordered digitally, this process should begin automatically, but you can also trigger it manually by finding the game in your PS4's library. It'll be well worth ensuring your pre-load is going ahead so you can jump straight in at launch.
