GTA Online June Update 2023, the San Andreas Mercenaries, is currently scheduled to be released on June 13, 2023. However, PlayStation users can be prepared for it ahead of time. PS4 and PS5 users can now pre-load the DLC data on their respective consoles. While Xbox One, Series S/X, and PC users will also be able to enjoy the new content, no pre-load download option is available for them at the time of writing this article.

This article will share everything GTA Online players must know about the pre-load size of the San Andreas Mercenaries update and how to install it on PlayStation consoles.

Rockstar Games always bring new content with the GTA Online Summer update, and the San Andreas Mercenaries DLC is no different. While only a handful of details about the upcoming features have been shared, we can now estimate how much new content will be added as part of the summer update 2023.

According to famous insider Tez2, the new San Andreas Mercenaries update will take 2-6GB of storage space on PlayStation consoles. Here’s a breakdown of the actual file size of the pre-load data based on the platform:

PS5 – 5.5GB

PS4 – 2.291GB

The file size is quite similar to last year’s The Criminal Enterprises update. However, the developers are adding a plethora of gameplay improvements to the almost 10-year-old game. PlayStation users can now pre-load the update with ease.
