    You can already pre-download it on Xbox One, so I have to imagine that you can do it on PC & PS4 at some point soon.

    Question to Epic if possible regarding the PC release of Fortnite. Will there be a pre-load before the 21st pre-order release? If not will there be a pre-load before the 25th early access release?

    It appears as though there is a preload available for PC. You should be able to open the Epic Games client and click a "download" button for Fortnite, which is about 6-6.5GB in size, if I remember correctly (it will come out at about 14GB when viewed on the HDD/SSD).

    EDIT: Just looked over on the Epic Games Fortnite forums and there's been an announcement about PC players being able to preload and that there may be another update before the release.
