Remnant 2: release time, file size, and preload options

If you’ve already got your character archetype picked out, your squad all lined up, and a fresh stress ball ready for when the going gets tough in Remnant 2, the only thing left to do before launch is make sure your system is good to go. This sequel promises to be bigger in just about every way than the original, with more classes, areas, quests, and bosses, plus a unique experience every time you play thanks to random generation. What isn’t random is when you will be able to jump in, especially if you plan ahead and make sure you have enough space and preload the game early. Here’s when Remnant 2 will come out, how big it will be, and when you can start your preloads.

Remnant 2 will have two release times. The “normal” one is for those who preordered either the Standard or Deluxe Edition of the game. If you have this version, you can start preloading at 4 p.m. PT or 7 p.m. ET on July 23.

If you paid a bit extra to get the Ultimate Edition, which comes with three days of early access, preloads will start early at 4 p.m. PT or 7 p.m. ET on July 19.

As of now, file sizes are known for the PC and Xbox versions of Remnant 2, while the PlayStation version is still a mystery.

On PC, you will need at least 80GB of space, while Xbox users will need to free up only 64GB of space. We assume the PlayStation version will be of a similar size to the Xbox’s. Either way, this is a nice and smaller size compared to many of the massive games we’ve had so far in 2023.

As long as you preorder Remnant 2, regardless of the edition, you will be eligible to start preloading at the times mentioned above, with Ultimate Edition owners getting that four-day head start.

Remnant 2 pre-order details

If you have yet to preorder Remnant 2 and want to make sure you’re able to play the moment the game officially launches, you can still secure your version of choice via the game’s official website.

Silent Hill 2 remake: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Pyramid Head walking in the rain.

Rumors about the Silent Hill 2 remake have faded into the fog, and it has become a reality. The classic title is considered by most to be one of the best horror games of all time, and now it is getting a complete remake. Unlike the disappointment that was the HD Collection, the game will be fully recreated from the ground up for modern hardware. Still, with such a beloved game and Konami's troubling track record in recent years, fans may have more concern than excitement about this announcement.

Aside from a new graphical overhaul, remakes can mean many different things. For Silent Hill 2, the question of exactly what will be -- and more importantly, won't be -- changed is on the minds of the dedicated fan base that holds the original in such high esteem. While Konami didn't fully clear the fog on what Silent Hill 2 will be this time around, we turned on our radios, checked every locked door, and managed to come out alive with everything you need to know about the Silent Hill 2 remake.

The Silent Hill post office shrouded in fog.

The Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team got two new gameplay trailers and a release date announcement at PlayStation's State of Play presentation and a Silent Hill Transmission stream directly after. Fans will be able to return to the town of Silent Hill on October 8 on both PS5 and PC.
