The Sims 4 Announces Preload Date

My plan for next week includes a 4-day weekend. This includes taking off September 2 for the release of Sims 4. Yeah, I know, the biggest mistake ever is taking a day off of work thinking you’ll actually be able to play a new release. This might turn out different, however.

I chose to order Sims 4 as a digital download from Origin, hoping to have better luck than to run around town looking for a hard copy. This will be the first time I’ve ever tried this with a Sims game — I’m usually a box collector. So, seeing the announcement that The Sims 4 will start preloading this Friday, August 29,  makes me feel like I’ve made the right choice.

Basically, that allows folks who purchased from Origin to download a good chunk of the game all weekend long. So, when the launch time rolls (supposedly midnight EST), all I need to do is finish a tiny download that will enable the game completely. Then, I’m on my way!

I plan on hitting up that download this weekend and seeing how this preload works in action!
