The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Pre-Load Now Available on Xbox One

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt 5

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available for pre-load on Xbox One. The game is still over a month away from release but it being available for pre-load so early, suggests there won’t be any more delays. Also, you can avoid the server stress by installing the game now.

According to the Xbox Live page, you will require 25.15GB of space to pre-load The Witcher 3 on your Xbox One. However, there is something really interesting about that size though.

One Xbox user reported that the install size actually turns out to be 30.4GB, so that brings it somewhat inline with 35GB on PlayStation 4.

25 or 30, it’s a fairly hefty download and you will need a pretty decent internet connection to install the game. If you buy the game digitally from either Xbox Store or PSN, you will get a 10% discount. Until launch, the game is available for $53.99, after which the price will go back to the usual $59.99.

The size difference between the PS4 and Xbox One versions is probably due to resolution. As announced by CD Projekt RED, the game will run at 1080p on PS4, while the Xbox One will have to settle for the usual 900p.

So obviously, for a higher-res you will have to use high-res textures. Hence, the size difference between the two versions.

I haven’t come across anything which indicates that the game is available for pre-load on PlayStation 4 as well. Let me know if that is the case.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is announced for PC, Xbox One and PC, the game is slated for a May 19 release.
