Gears of War 4 Dev Talks Pre-Loading, File Size
Pre-loading will be available well ahead of launch, developer teases.
With the release of Gears of War 4 coming up soon, Microsoft has now started to talk about important release topics such as pre-loading and its file size on console.
Gears of War community director Adam Fletcher wrote on Twitter that Microsoft will talk specifics on pre-loading "soon." Though we'll have to wait, he did assure fans that they will have "plenty of time to pre-load," suggesting this may start days before the game's official release on October 11.
Part of this may have to do with the fact that Gears of War 4 will unlock four days early, on October 7, for people who buy the $100 Ultimate Edition.
As for the Gears of War 4 file size, Microsoft already said you'll need a whopping 80 GB of free space on PC. But as for Xbox One, Fletcher said the console size may be smaller. "While large .. the PC size shouldn't be the indicator for Xbox," he explained.
