announced PS4 pre-order and pre-load details for their upcoming PlayStation 4 games today!
To quote: Last week during E3 2014, 10 PS4 games that were announced or featured at the show had pre-orders go live on PlayStation Store, and I'm thrilled to let you all know that each of those games will take advantage of PS4's automatic pre-load feature.
Automatic pre-load on PS4 allows you to download pre-ordered games before the release date, so you can get into your games after they're released faster than ever.
We all know that some of the biggest games can take a while to download, and with the pre-load functionality, you'll be able to download and install those huge files up to several days in advance.
And don't worry if you forget: any titles you've pre-ordered will be automatically pre-loaded and auto-downloaded to your PS4 system by default. All you have to do is pre-order the game, make sure your PS4 remains in standby mode, and sit back and relax.
You won't have to wait long to try this new feature out - Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, which launches on June 24th, will be the first PS4 title to take advantage of automatic pre-load. Additionally, all titles made available for pre-order on PlayStation Store on or after May 20, 2014, will be pre-loaded. Here are the titles available for pre-order and pre-load:
Battlefield Hardline Deluxe Edition
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition
Far Cry 4
inFAMOUS First Light
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
The Order: 1886
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Also, if you're the type that likes to know exactly how long until you can play, we've even included a countdown timer to let you know the moment you can start playing!
One more thing: we're focusing on all our new PS4 pre-orders, but note that the ability to automatically pre-load your game is also available for PS3 pre-orders.
