Respawn has confirmed when you can start downloading the Xbox One version of Titanfall. Here's the full list of download times broken down by country.

The studio previously announced that they won't allow preloading for the XB1 version. Gamers hoping for a surprise change to that policy will be disappointed by the timetable released today. You'll have to wait until the game is officially available in your country to start your download (schedule via OXM):
  • United States: 3/11/14 - 12:00 AM PDT
  • Canada: 3/11/14 - 12:00 AM PDT
  • Mexico: 3/11/14 - 12:00 AM PST
  • Brazil: 3/11/14 - 4:00 AM BRT
  • Austria: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM CET
  • France: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM CET
  • Germany: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM CET
  • Ireland: 3/14/14 - 12:00 AM GMT
  • Italy: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM CET
  • Spain: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM CET
  • United Kingdom: 3/14/14 - 12:00 AM GMT
  • Australia: 3/13/14 - 12:00 AM AEDT
  • New Zealand: 3/14/14 - 12:00 AM NZDT
On the plus side, these download times are probably better for your sleep schedule. Instead of being able to jump into the game at midnight, you'll have to leave your XB1 on while you catch up on your shut-eye. Health concerns weren't the reason for the lack of preloading, though.

"We believe in digital distribution, and are proud to give gamers a variety of ways to purchase and experience their games," Microsoft said earlier this month. "However, pre-purchase and pre-download for Titanfall for Xbox One will not be available from Xbox Store. We'll continue to strike a balance between digital distribution and its benefits, while supporting physical games purchase through our retail partners."

It's a shame that there's no preloading of Titanfall on Xbox One because it's a huge game. My download of the PC version yesterday was 50GB in total. The XB1 version probably isn't far off from that size.

Gamers who buy the physical version of Titanfall can get it a bit quicker. GameStop and Microsoft Store locations will be open at midnight to sell the game. Some online retailers have sent out boxed copies early as well. The physical version requires an 840MB day one patch but that's obviously a much smaller download.

The first reviews for Titanfall will be published this afternoon. We'll let you know when they're finally live.
