Those who have digitally pre-ordered Assassin's Creed: Origins on their Xbox One console can now pre-download the game in preparation of its October 27th release date. The game is several gigs in size so pre-downloading it ahead of time means that users can play it as soon as it launches instead of waiting potentially hours for it to download on the day.
