Bethesda didn't specify what day pre-loads will go live, but you can at least start clearing out some hard drive space while you're waiting for the green light; Fallout 4 will take up between 28 to 35GB of storage (opens in new tab) on consoles, depending on your particular territory and languages (those 110,000 lines of voiced dialogue (opens in new tab) don't come cheap).
