Fallout 4 Download Sizes, Day-One Patch and Xbox One Pre-load Issues

As the hype for Fallout 4 hits excruciating levels so does the silliness around it. With the embargoes on embargoes and general worries over the quality of the game, here are some of the details we know.

Gearnuke revealed that the game itself will be 41.07GB in size, and both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will have a 504MB patch to download on day one. So if you are fighting for space on your console and need to find some to install Fallout 4, maybe it’s the time to do some cleaning out of completed games.

As we reported earlier the PC pre-load should start sometime today, this should mean that the game will be ready on release and hopefully also mean that it can unlock at 12.01am whatever time zone you are in. Xbox One owners may have had some issues with the pre-load of an incorrect file, but worry not, details of how to fix that issue can be found here.

Now we know these details and as long as everything goes smoothly, everybody who has bought the games should be playing it on the day of release. We’ll also be able to read reviews with no embargoes getting in the way, which at this point has become comical. The fact that there are so many leaks at this point makes the fact that embargoes are in place just seem silly.

We have to stick by the rules though and wait until reviews can be posted, and hope for the best. Will the game finally live up to expectations? We’ll find out soon.
