We stand on the eve of Battlefield 4's US release and so EA has announced Origin has begun the preloading phase in Europe for PC gamers eager to catch up to their North American counterparts.
While we might not be able to play we can at least enjoy the comfort of knowing the data is sitting comfortably on our machines, just waiting for the arbitrary 'all clear' signal.
"Now accepting #BF4 preloads in Europe! Pre-order #BF4 for PC on Origin and you can preload the game immediately," tweeted the official Battlefield account.
Battlefield 4 releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 October 29th in the US, November 1st in EU.
