    Preload begins 9PM PST on Monday. 12AM EST on Tuesday. (Silly midnight timings!)

    Game unlocks 12PM CST Tuesday.

    In other words, you can download the game in the morning and play it instantly when it unlocks around lunch time.

  • And how is this a preload?

    This isn’t a preload it’s just a download. Calling it preload is either dumb or just clickbaity
