Warhammer 3 preload times for Steam, Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft Store

Warhammer 3 can’t be played at the start of the month, but everyone on Steam, Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft Store can prepare by making sure it’s preloaded.

The Total War franchise kicks into high gear this week with the release of Warhammer 3 on Steam, Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft Store. There are currently no plans to bring the popular spin-off to consoles, so all eyes will be on the PC platform.

And while there’s no way to start your campaign earlier, you can preload Warhammer 3 this week on Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft Store.

The preload options will only be available to those who are Game Pass Ultimate subscribers or have pre-ordered the game. But if you meet the criteria, it will be worth it.
