Its been a while since I bought a game on steam on preorder. Think Orange Box was the last time. Just like the title says does steam preload prior to the game going active?

Been wondering that myself. DA:O and ME2 both had preloads I believe. Maybe it will be up for the weekend?

preload starts tomorrow at 10am for Impulse so could be for steam too, possibly, maybe, turkey.

What does turkey has to do with anything?! :D

I think there is a pre-load option for most digital services. ME2 had one if I remember correctly.

It would quite a disappointment if Steam didn't give to option to pre-load.

Interesting, I guess we need to ask Steam now.

Steam versions use Steam DRM, no other DRM is added, which means:

* No disc check, it is used for digital game versions purchased from Steam only.

* No limit to the total number of PCs you can install the game on.

* There is a limit to the number of unique/different PCs that can play the game at any one time (if online) [1 PC].

* Each install requires logging into your Steam account to verify game ownership.

* You can play offline thereafter. If online, a game ownership check happens each time you play.

* Steam pre-loads use Steam release control you will not be able to play until the release day/time has passed for that region.

preload happened early today for d2d and impulse.
Have any steam users been able to preload it yet?
