The release of The Last of Us Part II is just around the corner. For anyone hoping to play the game immediately from launch, you'll need to preload the game. Read on to find out how!

What is Preloading?

In recent years, the size of games has gotten larger and larger, and with some gamers having rather questionable internet connections, finally playing that game you've been waiting for to come out can be delayed by hours when met with a download and pending install. Preloading comes in to take care of that by allowing you to download the game before release, then allowing the user to play once the game is officially released.

If you want to play a game as soon as possible, preloading is the fastest method available, since you will be able to play immediately after launch. Just be sure your PS4 has the necessary space required to download!

    • This walkthrough was helpful but I did not appreciate Lev being misgendered. He is a boy/man (can’t remember his age). I hope your choose to edit the pronouns to be correct.
