  • [OFFICIAL] Heads up relating to preload questions (and who can play on which dates)

    Some of you probably saw this on reddit, but I want to make sure it's here as well.

    Hey guys, we want to give a heads up relating to your questions about preloading Fortnite. On PC/Mac we're making every effort to make this happen and will update you as soon as we know. For console, even if you are able to preload right now, it's possible you could end up having to download again closer to launch as we continue to update with the latest builds. We want to make sure you guys know this since it's can be a pain to have to download twice. We'll let you know when the final updates hit console as soon as we have those details. Thanks!

    Preload Updates
    • PC players who will have 7/21 access at 10:00 a.m. are now able to preload. We may update again prior to tomorrow, but if you have your launcher open it should automatically catch the update.


    EDIT: I'm seeing some confusion about a couple of things in the thread in terms of who gets to play and when, so I want to make sure everyone understand the following:

    Who plays on 7/20? Players who were in Alpha who also have a Founder's Pack
    Who plays on 7/21? Anyone who has pre-ordered a Founder's Pack

    Does this mean people are able to play right now, and that they will have to download again as the date gets closer?

      How do we download on consoles? I have my epic games account linked to my PS4 account, tomorrow when this goes live can I download on PS4? When I check the store it says I don't own it.

            What I do know is they are aiming for a 10am eastern time July 20th, launch! Pending the apocalypse.

                      Are we able to preload on Windows? I have just pre-ordered and I do not see an option or do not see my game I have just purchased.

                        I'm slightly confused, are Windows users able to download the game now? Or when are we able to download?

                            I'm seeing some questions around the dates (not just preload) so I've updated the original post so everyone understands who plays on 7/20 and who plays on 7/21.
