The Cyberpunk 2077 preload has officially begun rolling on the PS4, along with the PC version on GoG.
For PlayStation gamers, the Cyberpunk 2077 preload weighs in 102gb (depending on region). This was confirmed over on Reddit as a PSN user residing in New Zealand has begun downloading the preload. For those who have pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, but reside in North America, the preload will be going live tonight at 12am ET. Other countries should also be available throughout the day as those respective regions hit the 8th.
Do note that this download size is also the same for those planning to play on PS5 as the version that will be available at launch for the console is that of the PS4. While it has been confirmed that the title will receive a dedicated next-gen version for free, no details have been provided as to when we could expect this version to release. So for PS5 players out there, the version that will be playable will be using the PS4 Pro enhancements plus the backwards compatibility advantages found on the PS5.
For PC who pre-order from GoG.com, you’ll also be excited to know that the preload has also begun with the current file size weighing around 60gb (also depends on region). Steam version will be available in a few short hours.

It is currently assumed that the download size for the preload is smaller than that of the PS4 version due to it potentially lacking the day one update. Xbox players should have already been given the option to preload almost a week ago.
An interesting message for those who pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 off of GoG, the game can be “launched” though CD Projekt Red have included the following screen for those that do attempt to play early.
“Go back to sleep, Samurai, it’s not currently December 10th yet!”
A pretty fun little Easter Egg. Cyberpunk 2077 will officially be available on December 10, worldwide. Down below you’ll find the global launch for PC and Stadia, with some regions being playable on the December 9. PS4 players in North America can expect the game to be playable at 12aM eastern time on December 10.
