How to Preload Dragon’s Dogma 2 on Steam?

Normally, you should be able to preload Dragon’s Dogma 2 on Steam following the usual steps. You go to the game’s store page and pre-purchase the game. After that, you should get the option to hit Download. Normally, this would let you get all the files onto your computer (be sure to have around 100 gigs of free space) but it won’t allow you hit Play. What it does do is let you hop into the game pretty much instantly once it unlocks. It’s a lifesaver for people who have slow internet. But even if you have a decent connection, everyone wants to start playing as soon as possible. And that’s where we hit a snag – there’s no option to preload the game.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Preload Not Appearing on PC

Yup, the option to preload Dragon’s Dogma 2 is not appearing on PC. There are already several posts both on Reddit and the Steam forums complaining about this. And considering how close we are to launch, the odds of the game actually offering preloads are ever shrinking. Which doesn’t mean that they won’t kick off at some point. The only thing I can recommend is to keep refreshing your Steam library in the hopes of that Download button popping up. There’s no guarantee this will happen at all, but hey, never give up hope. Won’t hurt to keep trying, as far as I’m concerned.
