A week of margin to have God of War: Ranarok ready on its launch day.
No one likes to waste hours of gameplay downloading dozens of gigabytes of content, so it’s normal for big releases like God of War: Ragnarok to allow download the game before and have it ready for when it is permanently enabled. At the moment we don’t know when the Sony Santa Monica game will be downloadable, but PlayStation itself could have leaked the date.
The PlayStation Store would already be indicating to players the date on which they can start downloading God of War: Ragnarok on PS5 and PS4 to have it ready on November 9 and not miss a minute of the game in this adventure of Kratos, Atreus and company. The end of the Nordic saga of God of War.
Date you download God of War: Ragnarok on PS5 and PS4
As you have shared Twisted Voxelit seems that the PlayStation Store is already marking the date to start downloading God of War: Ragnarok, the next November 2. That is, just a week before the official release of the game.
If you have already pre-ordered God of War: Ragnarok, the theory is that you can check this download date by going to your game library on PS5 or PS4. Once there, it would be as simple as clicking on the God of War Ragnarok icon and selecting the release date counter to see the date when the game will be available for download. The date of November 2 should appear under the game, as shown in the photo below:
As for the space needed to download God of War: Ragnarok, at least on PS4, a few days ago it was confirmed that more than 90 Gb of disk space will be needed. It is expected that its size on PS5 will be smaller due to having better decompression capacity, but it aims to be one of the heaviest games for the new generation PlayStation console.
