The ability to pre-download pre-ordered games has come to Xbox One a little earlier than expected with Madden NFL 15.
Xbox One owners who pre-order the game from the Xbox Games Store can now download and install it ahead of its official release on August 26. The game will be unlocked and available to play instantly at 12:01 a.m. PDT on August 26.
Microsoft announced during its Xbox Gamescom press conference that the ability to pre-download games would finally be coming to Xbox One in September with the releases of FIFA 15 and Forza Horizon 2.
It’s worth noting that EA Access members can currently play Madden NFL 15 for a limited time ahead of its official release.
