This is a guide on preloading Cyberpunk 2077. Read on to know if you can play the game ahead of its scheduled release date.

Will Preload be Available?

Preloading (pre-downloading) is available for all consoles starting December 7th. This allows players to download the game in advance, and while the game is not playable until December 10th, players can avoid long download times by taking advantage of preloading.

Be sure to preload the game in advance to avoid a long wait for the game to download on release day!

For PS4 players, a screen similar to the one above appears upon preloading the game.

In order to pre-download the game, be sure to check the Auto-Download box shown – otherwise, the game will not download ahead of time automatically.

Downloading the game through GOG will also allow players to pre-download the game.

Once the game has been preordered, players are able to view a timer showing when pre-download will become available. After the timer ends, players will be able to freely download the game to get armed and ready for release day!

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • If I fail or cancel out of an access point, the mini-game will not load up, you'll just get the jack in/Jack out animations but the mini-game will no longer appear.
