Ghost of Tsushima Preload Live: How to download

Ghost of Tsushima preload

Head to the PlayStation Store on your PS4 to download and install the Ghost of Tsushima preload. You can only do this if you have pre-ordered a digital copy of the game. Sorry physical players. From right now, you can initiate the preload of Ghost of Tsushima right up until the game releases on Friday, July 17, 2020. To begin your Ghost of Tsushima preload, simply follow these steps:

  • Pre-order a digital copy of Ghost of Tsushima (if you haven’t already, see below)
    • Head onto the PlayStation Store on your PS4
    • Search for Ghost of Tsushima
    • Pre-order the game
  • The preload should automatically begin as of July 9, 2020
  • If the preload doesn’t begin automatically, find Ghost of Tsushima in the Library section of your PS4
  • Once located, select Ghost of Tsushima and you should be able to begin its preload

Before you preload Ghost of Tsushima, you need to know its file size. The Ghost of Tsushima file size is around 34.6 GB. That’s a lot more manageable than other recent PS4 games, for sure. Do be aware, however, that the bonus content for the Digital Deluxe Edition is a separate 22 GB download. On top of all of this, too, there will likely be a day one update to install upon the game’s release. Nevertheless, around 34.5 GB is relatively small for a new PS4 game these days.

When is the Ghost of Tsushima unlock time?

The Ghost of Tsushima unlock time for digital copies is midnight July 17, 2020, no matter where you live. As soon as July 16 turns into July 17, wherever you live, you can begin playing Ghost of Tsushima, as long as the game is installed by then.
