Fallout 4 can now be preloaded on PC

Get going!

If you've been waiting patiently to preload your copy of Fallout 4 on the PC, it's time to put your pipes to work. You can now get the game downloaded so you're ready to play the moment it becomes available on Nov. 10.

The game requires a 23.8 GB download on PCs, but that shouldn't worry you.

"The file size of every Bethesda Game Studios release of the last 10 years added together is 'smaller' than Fallout 4's install size, which tells us that we still don't really know anything about how long Fallout 4 is, or how big it is," our own Arthur Gies wrote. "The only way we're going to find out is once someone who doesn't work for Bethesda plays it."

And guess what, we'll be able to talk about the game in greater detail on Monday, Nov. 9, at 8 a.m. ET, which is a detail we've only recently been able to share. If you're already purchased it though? Get to downloading!

Also, if you've noticed our header image, a certain Polygon editor was really proud of his connection and we all hate him and I won't even say it was Arthur.
