The Witcher 3 Preload Is Live On PS4; Day 1 Patch Changelog And Preload Size Revealed


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt preload is now live on the PlayStation Store in select territories. In addition to the preload, we also have a day 1 patch on the PS4 which hopefully fixes the frame rate issues.

If you have pre-ordered The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the PlayStation Store, you should be able to start the download for the game from PSN. The preload is currently live in select territories only including Poland, most of Europe and US. It will be gradually made available in rest of the territories as the game launch draws near.

You can check out a screenshot revealing the preload and day 1 patch download size below.
