Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Now Available to Pre-Load on PlayStation Network

on August 30, 2015 2:26 PM

For those who have pre-ordered the digital version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on the PlayStation 4, you should now be able to begin downloading the game. Make sure you’ve cleared space on your hard drive, as the file size hits in around 27 GB, near the estimate given previously of 25.1 GB. The initial download for some folks may only be 5GB though that is the first chunk of playable game and the rest will download after it is installed. The PlayStation 3 version should also be up and is reportedly broken into three sections, with the first being 12GB of data based on user Based Calla‘s comment. The European version should go up for pre-loading tomorrow.

Special thanks to NeoGAF user doctorblurg who posted a photo of their download. I’m jealous of those who will be able to play the game starting 9 PM PDT Monday night, as I will be waiting for 12AM PDT to pick up a physical disc copy.
