From Software’s Dark Souls III can now be pre-loaded on Steam for people who already pre-purchased or those who do so now. The file size is not extraordinarily large (the game’s Steam page says you need 25 GB of space), but it’s still a nice option to have if you want to get started right away come launch on Tuesday, April 12.
By comparison, Xbox One users have been able to pre-load Dark Souls III since the middle of February. It’s not immediately clear if the PlayStation 4 version is available to pre-load at this time.

GameSpot’s Dark Souls 3 review awarded the sequel 8/10.
“There are several possible endings to Dark Souls 3, and although most are anticlimactic, they drive home the loneliness of the paths we took,” reviewer Mike Mahardy said.
“The old lords have abandoned their posts, and in the hunt to usurp them, we descend into those dark valleys, and climb those imposing peaks. This is the essence of Dark Souls III: periods of doubt, followed by great reward. The journey may be rocky, but there’s a throne waiting at the end.”
