In The Witcher, you take on the greatest contract of your life – tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world. The game will receive 16 entirely free DLCs, that will be available for every gamer owning a copy of Wild Hunt. The DLCs will be released in pairs on a weekly basis, starting from May 20th.

Pre-Order, Pre-Load Upcoming PS4 Games

Chieh Chen's Avatar+ Posted by Chieh Chen on Jun 18, 2014 // Digital Distribution Manager, Sony Network Entertainment

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

Last week during E3 2014, 10 PS4 games that were announced or featured at the show had pre-orders go live on PlayStation Store, and I’m thrilled to let you all know that each of those games will take advantage of PS4’s automatic pre-load feature.

Automatic pre-load on PS4 allows you to download pre-ordered games before the release date, so you can get into your games after they’re released faster than ever. We all know that some of the biggest games can take a while to download, and with the pre-load functionality, you’ll be able to download and install those huge files up to several days in advance. And don’t worry if you forget: any titles you’ve pre-ordered will be automatically pre-loaded and auto-downloaded to your PS4 system by default. All you have to do is pre-order the game, make sure your PS4 remains in standby mode, and sit back and relax.

You won’t have to wait long to try this new feature out – Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, which launches on June 24th, will be the first PS4 title to take advantage of automatic pre-load. Additionally, all titles made available for pre-order on PlayStation Store on or after May 20, 2014, will be pre-loaded. Here are the titles available for pre-order and pre-load:

Title Pre-Order Price
Battlefield Hardline $59.99
Battlefield Hardline Deluxe Edition $69.99
Bloodborne $59.99
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare $59.99
Destiny $59.99
Dragon Age: Inquisition $59.99
Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition $69.99
Far Cry 4 $59.99
inFAMOUS First Light $14.99
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare $39.99
LittleBigPlanet 3 $59.99
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor $59.99
The Order: 1886 $59.99
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark $59.99
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End $59.99

Also, if you’re the type that likes to know exactly how long until you can play, we’ve even included a countdown timer to let you know the moment you can start playing!

One more thing: we’re focusing on all our new PS4 pre-orders, but note that the ability to automatically pre-load your game is also available for PS3 pre-orders. Watch for each week’s PlayStation Store Update for all the latest pre-orders!
