The Rage 2 unlock time and preload dates have been revealed ahead of its May 14 release. If you want to know when you can pre-install and play the game on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, you’ll want to read our guide. Find out when the Rage 2 unlock time and preload dates are below.

Rage 2 Unlock Time and Preload Dates | Xbox One

Rage 2 Unlock Time

If your platform of choice in Microsoft’s home console, the Rage 2 unlock time is 12 AM on Tuesday, May 14 in your time zone. If you’re in North America, however, the game won’t unlock until, bizarrely, a minute later at 12:01 AM ET.

As for when you can preload the game so that it’s available to play as soon as midnight rolls around, you can pre-install Rage 2 on your Xbox One starting Saturday, May 11 at 8 AM ET (5 AM PT, 1 PM BST, and 10 PM AEST.)

The Rage 2 unlock time for PS4 owners, like Xbox One users, will be midnight in your time zone on Tuesday, May 14. Again, North American players will have to wait an extra minute until 12:01 AM ET to get it. For those in the UK, for example, that’s 12 AM BST.

The preload date for PS4 users is different from the Xbox One date though. Rage 2 can be pre-installed on your console 48 hours before launch in your territory. That means that North American gamers can begin preloading it on Sunday, May 12 at 12:01 AM ET if you want to.
