A reminder if you’ve preordered BF3 for the PC – the preload begins this Friday. So, leave Origin running and logged in starting this Friday, 10/21/11, at 7:00 PM PST. EA will be sending out emails with details on starting the preload later this week, but it should just be a matter of clicking a “download” or “preload” button on BF3 in your games list.

Time will tell how fast the download completes, but by preparing for the preload as soon as it’s up, you’ll have plenty of time to fully download BF3 before it releases.

On a related note, the game will be unlocked to play starting at midnight PST on Tuesday, 10/25/11. Who’s excited??
