You Can Now Pre-Load Elden Ring On Xbox, Even If You Haven't Bought It

We're less than a week away from the release of Elden Ring on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on Friday, February 25th, and you can now begin pre-installing the game — even if you haven't bought it yet!

If you have bought Elden Ring digitally via the Microsoft Store, you should find that the pre-load has begun automatically, with the game clocking in at just under 50GB on Xbox Series X. Here's some proof of it:

If you haven't bought Elden Ring yet, or you're waiting on a physical version of the game to arrive, you can instead pre-install the game by heading to the official Xbox mobile app on Android or iOS. Here's how to do it:

  • Open the Xbox app for Android or iOS
  • Go to the magnifying glass on the bottom tab
  • Search for the word "Elden" and select the game page for Elden Ring
  • Hit "Download to Console", and choose a console to install the game on

There's always the chance you may need to download another day one update when next Friday rolls around, but this'll at least get you prepared by installing the base version of the game. We're on the home stretch now!
