I don’t think IO will still figure anything out before the 9th regarding preloads on Steam. But I find it nonsensical, even unjust to some degree, that players on PC paying the same price as people on console should not be able to download the game at least. I don’t see much speaking against it, but this decision has already been made I would reckon.
This also goes for the 13th too. Why put a heavier load on servers, why make people wait longer, much longer in some cases?
Let’s just hope they do figure something out.
But nonetheless, I am really looking forward to playing. After all, this is something I’ll probably completely forget about once I actually have the game installed
