Fallout 4 Pre-Load Now Available On PS4, Requires 4.45 GB Initial Download

Fallout 4 pre-load has been available on Steam and Xbox One for a while now and finally PlayStation 4 users are getting their chance to download the game ahead of the official launch on November 10th. Those who have pre-ordered the game on the PlayStation Store should be able to start their pre-load starting now.

If you were wondering about the size of the initial download, it is around 4.45 GB. The full game requires between 25 to 28 GB for full download depending on the region of your store. The pre-load has only been confirmed for North American users, so other regions will have to wait a while until it is available for them.

In addition to the pre-load, we also learn about the installed game size and its day 1 patch, which is around 500 MB on PS4. The full game install will take up around 41 GB of hard disk space with the patch 1.01.

Fallout 4 is the hotly anticipated next entry in the post-apocalyptic series. Fallout 3 was released in 2008 so fans have been waiting for the next mainline game for a long while now. Fallout 4 is currently set to release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 10th.

Let us know if you have started your pre-load on the PS4 in the comments below.

    Can i preload the game if I preordered it physically ?

  • Martin Headshot

    DATE: Spoke to uk psn support, they blame the publisher for not having offered the coding or whatever to make the preload available.
    The guy said that either we can download it at some point today and if that doesn’t work he guaranteed the download to be available as of 12:01 tonight. That’s why it said “expected download date”
    So that’s it basically. Save your money and time to call them or do call them and voice your outrage

    • Stuart Starkie

      I’ve got on the psn online store and got it in my download queue apparently but it’s just *waiting* at the moment, thanks for letting me know your results with them

      • Martin Headshot

        No problem, and what you did I did already and it won’t work. I know it’s rubbish. PlayStation released a tweet saying we get it at midday, so try to download it after 12 (lunch) today. I posted a link above but it hasn’t been approved on here yet. Just says what I just said on the lines of: fallout preload available as of midday today
        You can add me on ps4 if that’s easier, up to you

        • macko

          Cheers for posting the updates! Would you put your psn name on here ? You sound like a friend in the know 😉

          • Martin Headshot

            Haha I am I guess, but only because I have a spine injury and have to much time.
            My psn is lshot_Bambis_Mum
            With an L instead of an I at the beginning. I had the original account too but lost the email somehow haha

        • Stuart Starkie

          Just started downloading it via the psn website, took the previous download off the queue, re logged and now it’s downloading by the looks of it

          • Martin Headshot

            Yeah, as of 12 🙂

  • drguru

    Well, what better excuse to come to America and download that shit?

  • jmmy

    This is just plain stupid. They have obvioulsy been misleading their customers and and dont pay for something I dont get under agreed terms.

    • Martin Headshot

      Look at my update above, explains it all, sorry but at least you know now

  • Corey

    Where the fucks the review

    • Martin Headshot

      Lol! That’s like a luxury! Sounds like you got the game at least, be happy about it if that’s the case…

  • Stuart Starkie

    Nothing for me in the uk, got it on auto download on ps4 had it pre ordered since it became available to do so, I bet this will be another case of the UK not getting it while everyone else does because the servers aren’t updated

    • Martin Headshot

      Yep mate, just got up early to check and Nufin….

      • Stuart Starkie

        Does my head in, why promise pre download then not make it available, will end up that we’ve paid £50 for no reason, the servers will fry at midnight with everyone trying to download it, won’t be back up all day tomorrow and within that space of time we could have walked to the nearest game store and got a physical copy for cheaper

        • Martin Headshot

          Yeah, they took the money for it on Saturday…no tweets, no comments, no info no nufin…and I contacted everyone, developers, PlayStation and so on…

        • Martin Headshot

          Look at comment from me above

      • bagofmilk

        Less than 2 hours til release here in NZ and still no preload. Big fuck you from sony to anyone that isn’t american I guess.

        • Martin Headshot

          Sony blames the publisher for not providing the coding but I doubt that seeing that Americans had it since yesterday for their psn. But I dunno

  • Forbe

    So when it releases on Monday well have to go threw another larger download? Or will it start up and download through it, I’m confused. Like a day one patch.

    • Martin Headshot

      The U.K. Got screwed I guess…we should get checked by a std clinic because something smells fishy!!!

    • Martin Headshot

      Look at my update above, explains it all, spoke to someone on psn

  • Ice-Qube5

    Started earlier today for me. It was odd but it started at full download size, then shrunk to 4gb

    • Martin Headshot

      What country are you melting in if you don’t mind me asking?

      • Ice-Qube5

        North America. U.S.A specifically

        • Martin Headshot

          Well good on you guys for having the preload option, still nothing in uk

          • Ice-Qube5

            Really? That sucks

  • Martin Headshot

    Nothing yet in uk, i hope I am not the only one who thinks its complete bullshit that everyone had a chance to download apart from ps4 users? It’s like Bethesda is hating Sony or something!??
    My internet is shit and yes I can’t help it little village and shit but there is no way it will be ready in time. I payed extra so that I could play and it would be ready for 12 tomorrow and now this bs!

    • Rockyb

      Same for me, it said when I pre ordered I would be able to download from 8th but I keep getting error messages!?

      • Martin Headshot

        Still nothing….beyond a joke…less then 17 hours do download 28gb on my rubbish internet. I feel like someone fucked me hard without making me breakfast the next morning….

        • macko

    • jeremy klimek
