If you pre-order The Sims 4 on Xbox One from the Microsoft store the game will pre-install ready for the launch. The base game file size is around 12GB and Perfect Patio stuff is 167mb. Once pre-installed the game will list under My Games & Apps and will have a little pre-order tag line accross the bottom of the tile until release day.
Remember you will only need internet access to download and update the game. Playing The Sims 4 on console does not require internet access.
