For anyone who has pre-ordered on steam the pre-load is now available. Download clocks in just short of 12 GB, not long now!

HELL YES!
*Ahem* Got a little excited there. Quite the fortunate news, now it's time to attempt installing the game from a retail disk.
Edit: Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Oh well...

Any word on if people who pre-ordered through another service (for me, specifically GameStop) will be able to pre-load the game?

I have my key from the "GameStop App" (piece of shit, by the way), however, trying it on Steam only gives me an "Invalid Product Code" message. I'd really like to be able to pre-load this and not spend the day I wanted to play the game downloading it instead.

Kind of shitty if they implied we would only get the Sniper Challenge in the U.S. by pre-ordering through them, and then get screwed over by not being able to pre-load...

Did you try your key on steam after the pre-load period started?
Like... right now?

But I don't get how the pre-load works (I'm a ps3 user). I know it means that you can download the game in advance so you don't have to do it and lose time on the release day, but are you guys actually able to play before the release date? I mean once downloaded and installed you can play it?
Can anyone shed some light here?

You can't play before the release date, it simply means you have it ready to go as soon as it unlocks on the day of release.

I'm waiting on my GMG key as well. They sent out my Dishonored key a few days early so fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Now I gathered the money for pre-order. I don't have much time. The problem is I don't have the balls of spending 1500000 rials in a day. my father would fuck me i he finds out.
And I am not sure does it worth or not.

Woohoo, pre-loaded. Now to wait for Tuesday.

The graphics look fucking stunning on XBOX360 and they look to be 2x times better on the PC, can't wait to try it out.

Apparently, the release date is a day earlier for me. Hurray?

Edit: WTF, it changes back and forth from 19th to 20th.

Oh, hell yeah. Great morning. Pre-loading, Absolution right now. :D

It's pre-loading fast for me too. Already on 47 percent.

*****************************
Update: Pre-load 100 percent complete. And blazing fast too. Only 2 hours. :D
