Rise of the Ronin Preload Times

Players can preload the game as early as March 15, 2024. If you’ve never tried this before, you can essentially download the entire game before it launches so you can dive right in as soon as it’s released.

The process is fairly straightforward, and we’ve detailed it below.

How to Preload Rise of the Ronin

  1. Purchase the game before March 22.
  2. Go to your Game Library on PS5.
  3. Find and select Rise of the Ronin.
  4. Select Download.

The game will now preload into your Game Library and you can play it as soon as the game launches.

Rise of the Ronin Unlock Times

Rise of the Ronin is coming out on PlayStation 5 on March 22, 2024. The Friday release date will see a lot of players surging into the game along with Dragon’s Dogma 2. That said, you might be wondering if you can get early access to Rise of the Ronin.

Unfortunately, early access isn’t possible. There are no editions of the game that grant you access a few days earlier than other players picking up the standard edition. This has been a recent trend with new game releases, but Rise of the Ronin has opted not to hop on the bandwagon.

Rise of the Ronin Install Size

The PS5 version of Rise of the Ronin is expected to be around 96 GB. This seems to be slightly above average for AAA games but it’s not the highest download size we’ve ever seen. That said, you might still need to clear up some space on your SSD.

That concludes everything you need to know on the Rise of the Ronin preload, unlock times, and install size. For more information about the game, check out our Rise of the Ronin hub for articles like will RotR be on PC.
