God Of War Now Available For Pre-Loading On PS4

Kratos usually isn't this patient.


God of War is now available for pre-loading on PlayStation 4, for those who purchased digital copies. That gives you several hours to load it up before the game unlocks at midnight ET tonight. In addition, Sony Santa Monica has issued a day-one patch. The patch weighs in at 6.1 GB and updates the game to version 1.1. We'll share the patch notes as they become available.

If you haven't yet pre-ordered at all, you may want to check out our release date and pre-order bonus guide. Various goodies come from different retailers, and the Digital Deluxe version is available exclusively from the PlayStation Store. It comes with a digital art book, digital comic issue, a PS4 dynamic theme, and a few pieces of equipment.

God of War has received a round of rave reviews, including our own GameSpot review, in which Peter Brown praised it for continuing to deliver hard-hitting combat while finding new avenues for storytelling. All of that has made it the current highest-rated PS4 exclusive on our sister site Metacritic.

Before you dive in to the adventure, though, read up on our tips for beginners to get off on the right foot. Or if you just can't wait, you can check out the first hour of God of War.
