Assassin’s Creed Unity pre-load for Xbox One, PS4

By Alan Ng - Oct 25, 2014

The countdown to Assassin’s Creed Unity is on and now we can bring you some good news for Xbox One owners in relation to the Assassin’s Creed Unity pre-load release time. It looks like Microsoft has been able to beat Sony to the punch, as you can now pre-load the game on Xbox One – it’s still not available on PS4 though.

The official Assassin’s Creed Unity release date is not until November 11, but we can already see that Microsoft is preparing for the launch of Ubisoft’s game early.

Those who have the game already ordered on Xbox One can now go ahead and pre-load the game’s files. We can confirm that the Assassin’s Creed Unity digital file size for Xbox One is 37.63GB.


That is over two weeks in advance of the launch date that Microsoft are offering up here which is great to see. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for PS4 as we can see that the pre-load is still not available to download.

At least with the Xbox One pre-load going live, it should give PS4 owners a good heads-up that the Assassin’s Creed Unity file size on PS4 should be around the same mark as Xbox One – 37.64GB since usually both games end up being similar to each other.

Hopefully it won’t take Sony to follow suit with their own pre-load. They love to compete so if anything this should speed them up a bit. Are you now pre-loading the game on Xbox One? Let us know how long it took you to download and if you encountered any problems during the process that we should know about.

    Why do you need to download games weeks early? A couple of days before is enough.

      Some people might need the extra time if they are not able to download that much in like 3 days or so.

    • Not everybody has a superfast connection. My own connection tends to vary wildly; there’s no guarantee it’ll come down in 48 hours. Could take 4-5 days.
