At Gamescom 2014, Microsoft announced digital pre-ordering and pre-loading for “select” Xbox One games, with FIFA 15 (September 26) and Forza Horizon 2 (September 30) being the first games to get the feature. By digital pre-ordering and pre-loading, fans of the soccer and racing game will be able to download both games before their release date, allowing them to play them immediately after they are launched. "Preorder and pre-download gives gamers additional options for where they can purchase game content and the ability to purchase in their preferred format," Microsoft said. "This also enables the title to download ahead of availability, so gamers can begin playing immediately upon the release of the game." After Fifa 15 and Forza Horizon 2, pre-loading will become a much more widely used feature as other games adopt it.
