Xbox One Preload

The Xbox One was actually the first platform to offer up preload for the game, and it actually started back in November 2018. You’re free to go ahead and preload it now on the Xbox One, and then you’ll be free to start slashing your way through all manner of fiendish enemies as soon as the unlock times arrive.
