Red Dead Redemption 2 Pre-Loading Begins On 19 October And It Needs At Least 99 GB of Space

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost here, and anyone that has pre-ordered the game can pre-load it on Friday, October 19 at 12 AM ET (or 9 PM PT on 18 October, Thursday). Prepare to get into the Old West and load it to be ready for launch.

The pre-load announcement was released with the new launch trailer by Rockstar on Twitter, allowing us to use the pre-load time before the game launches.

And that makes a lot of sense because it needs at least 99 GB to install. Rockstar Games’ support website stated that you will need the following space:

Disc Installation

PS4 – 99 GB installation space

Xbox One – 107 GB installation space

Digital Installation

PS4 – 99 GB installation space with an additional 50 GB for the installation process

Xbox One – 107 GB installation space

Pre-ordering the game will also come with a cash bonus for the story mode and some GTA$ for Grand Theft Auto Online. The ones that pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption 2 on 31 July will get a treasure map that will lead them to a head-start in making more money in the Old West.

There are also physical editions that come with different bonuses or physical items – we are talking about the Special and Ultimate editions. There is also a Collector’s Box that does not come with the game, but it has a pin set, a bandana, playing cards and a tithing box complete with a lock and key.

500,000 Lines of Dialogue

As for the game itself, it comes with a massive open world, and a lot of activities (yes, even fishing and hunting). You’ll also need to take care of your clothes and hygiene, or the dialogue will not be in your favor.

According to Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser, the game has 500,000 lines of dialogue! And all of that came at a cost – hundreds of hours of work per week for the senior members writing and debating.

We cannot wait for the game to start installing!
