Has anybody else that pre-ordered the game for xbox noticed that there is a update going on for the game? It start updating around 4 a.m. central time U.S. It is about 31 gigs. Now i really want to know what the big surprise is for later today lol. It says network, so it is probably nothing to exciting.

    Yes I've just noticed and it's currently DLing. I assumed it was just pre-loading prior to release as isn't this close to the original release date before they sensibly ran away from RDR2?

    I think you are correct. Do we even have any idea how large the game is Gb wise?

    No idea how large the final game is meant to be and whether there'll be further updates prior to release (probable). As an example of not being a full download Rockstar stated a 107GB(?) download on the XB1, my copy downloaded overnight and is around 88GB so go figure

    Well it gives you the "you are to early" spiel if you try to launch the game lol.

    Also dice just tweeted that the game has just gone gold, not sure what that means.

    It’s a pre-load of the game. It’s not the full game, only the parts that are finished already, as per DICE’s Jaqub Ajmal.

    Gold = they've signed off on the shipping version of the game and it'll now be sent for physical printing and distribution (Gold comes from the literally gold master template when printing CDs)
    They'll still be working on the game hopefully and there'll probably be a day one patch for the extra work. The game may be smaller than previous games at launch due to their "as a service" model where they'll be releasing content over time.

    A game going gold means that it's in its final release form, stamped, approved, ready to launch. That being said they can still make tweaks with everyone's favorite day one patch.

    So is there anything about pre loading what's finished already for the PS4 version? If so I might just get digital.

    So just to confirm, you can buy the game right now, and get it pre installed, correct? Just wanna make sure if I need to run by the bank tomorrow or not, lol

    If you pre-load and download it can you start the game? What happens when you do?

    ^Thats what happens. You cant start playing the game now. But maybe you can look at customization stuff?

    Xbox never changed the released date on their end hence why only Xbox users were able pre-load the game.

    This was confirmed by the Community Manager.
