What is Pre-load and how does it work?
Pre-load is generally the process by which you can download an Xbox, PlayStation or PC game before the game is actually released. Keep in mind that actual gameplay is restricted until the day of release, however customers who have pre-loaded the game can play immediately rather than having to spend time downloading the game on release day. Pre-loading a video game is identical to pre-ordering the game, just with the added benefit of immediate gameplay upon the release of the title. Customers who pre-load can expect the same bonuses and incentives offered for different versions of the product. These video game pre-order bonuses are delivered in different ways and at different times depending on the video game title in question, however most customers can expect to have their pre-order bonus within 2 days of the release date.
