It’s 1PM Pacific and if you’re a hardcore Fallout 4 fan you have already added your Steam product code to your library and began pre-loading. Earlier this AM (about 9 hours ago in UK time), digital retailer Green Man Gaming begin sending out keys for Fallout 4 in anticipation of the pre-load going live later today. If you still don’t have your key, make sure you check your spam folder in your email, or simply log into your account and click on the “Games” tab, then “Steam Games” section and you’ll see your key.
For those sitting on the sideline because they weren’t sure if Green Man Gaming will be sending out pre-load keys, you now have your answer.

Pre-loading of Fallout 4 is expected to clock in around 23.8GB for the PC version of Fallout 4, so if you have a slow Internet connection, getting things going 4 days early might be a good idea. For gamers on the Xbox One who have pre-loaded, you might want to double check if everything is kosher given notices are being sent out that a re-download may be necessary.

Between the multitude of marketing merchandise surrounding this title, everything from branded beer to Nuka Cola tie-ins, this is probably one of the biggest title this Fall. Developer and publisher Bethesda also expects Fallout 4 will be their biggest release ever, which is understandable considering the growing popularity of their games. From Fallout to Skyrim, Bethesda has continued to set high benchmarks when it comes to open world design, character customization, and narrative. With that in mind, it will be interesting to see how well Bethesda delivers on the noticeable hype and if Fallout fans of the old will enjoy the new installment, and whether or not they’ll be securing new fans. Either way, we’re sure the game will do just fine in the sales department.
Fallout 4 releases November 10, 2015 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
