From August 26 (Friday), The Last Of Us Part 1 will begin the pre-loading process onto PlayStation 5 consoles, ahead of the remake’s release on September 2. According to the Twitter channel Naughty Dog Central and a screenshot they shared, The Last Of Us Part 1 will pre-load onto the platform from tomorrow. A time has yet to be confirmed.
Regardless, these extra few days before the game’s launch will provide ample time for the download to complete, especially considering Part 1‘s likely large size. However, at the time of writing, it is past midnight in Australia: players are beginning the pre-loading process on the other side of the world.
Most intriguingly, the file sizes are not as big as first anticipated. According to one Twitter user, MaxHolton97, who shared a screenshot of the pre-load, The Last Of Us Part 1 takes up 68GB of storage space. Understandably, the remake is larger than The Last Of Us Remastered, the 2014 PS4 rerelease of the original game. Unlike its predecessor, Part 1 is enhanced and rebuilt from the ground up for its new console.

It’s important to remember that the pre-load for the remake is strictly limited to the PS5, as Naughty Dog continues development for the PC port of the title.
