✪ Preloading Battlefield 4 - Smart Thing To do? ✪

Some have been wondering now that Battlefield 4 have been released for download from Origin if preloading battlefield 4 is a smart thing to do. And why is that?

Well you see Battlefield 3 was patched after only 1 day of it's release. So it might be a smart move to it to hold off your download if you have a slower connection and don't want to spend a lot of time on downloading patches for battlefield 4. Some have reported that they only get around 100 KiB/s download from Origin even though they have a fast connection.

However it turns out that the preloaded battlefield 4 already have a folder called "Patch". That means you are not downloading the same version that was burned to disc weeks ago. And even though you download 24 GB of information from Origin does not mean you have to download that much for a patch of the game.

But there will be more patches and there already have been made several tweaks after the "final" disk's where burned. But these patches will only be around 50-100mb to download so even if you have a slow connection or problems downloading from Origin with 100 KiB/s it's not going to take you that long to download.
