Praise the sun (and your nearest data center)! The Steam preload for Dark Souls 3 is now live, a few convenient days ahead of it's April 12th release. If you bought the game already, the preload option should be available, but if not, a quick restart ought to bring it around. The download clocks in just under 20GB, 5GB of which I presume is reserved for storing tears and moon-landing lore theories.
Typically, we're not the kind of crew to recommend preordering games, but I absolutely loved Dark Souls 3 (read my review to see why) and legendary Dark Souls modder Durante also gave the port a thumbs up. So if you were on the fence, now's the time to get off it so as to ensure Monday evening isn't spent watching a progress bar inch forward.
