Diablo 4 release time, file size and preload options

The time for betas and tests is over, and now we only have the full Diablo 4 experience left to wait for.

Featuring a brand-new story, new skills, and a whole new way to play with a persistent world, hundreds of hours will be spent slaying demons alone and with friends.

As big of a game Diablo 4 is going to be, who wants to wait to dive in? Thankfully you can cut down on that wait by preloading the game so you can start building your character and hunting down Lilith to save Sanctuary the moment the game goes live.

Diablo 4’s file size isn’t fully confirmed as of yet, however, we do know that the PC requirements ask for 90GB of space, so aim to have at least that much available for the game.

Starfield preload guide: release time, file size, preorder, and early access

Bethesda games are among the most ambitious and expansive experiences you can find, including pioneers of the open-world RPG genre like The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. With its latest game, and first new IP in over a decade, the team at Bethesda has set its sights quite literally on the stars. Starfield promises to be as ambitious as a game from this studio that's set in space would imply. Originally planned to release on November 11, 2022, it was delayed for close to a full year, only making the wait that much more painful for hardcore fans of the genre. Now we're just about ready to take to the stars and explore the game's vast universe. Before you head out into the final frontier, take note of when you can depart and how much storage your vessel will need to make the trip a reality.
Starfield release time

The official release date for Starfield is at 8 p.m. ET on September 5.
