If we go by Capcom’s latest releases, like the Resident Evil 4 Remake and Exoprimal, the preload for Dragon’s Dogma 2 is speculated to be 48 hours before the release time. This means gamers will be able to preload the game on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, at midnight local time.

According to a Reddit post, the preload for Xbox Series X|S is already live and confirms Dragon’s Dogma file size is about 69.94 GB. An X (formerly Twitter) account suggests the game will be 64.391 GB on PlayStation.

Although the file size might vary on PC, we can expect it to match the size above. That’s only for Steam users as Dragon’s Dogma 2 will not be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

How to Preload Dragon’s Dogma 2?
