A big new open-world MMORPG is right around the corner, and knowing everything about the Tower of Fantasy download beforehand is a wise decision. Though it's been out in China for some time now, the global release set for August 10 was announced earlier in the year, and it's gathered up a sizeable playerbase in the run-up to release.
Down below, we're going to go over what you need to know about the Tower of Fantasy download ahead of launch. We'll cover the install size, how to pre-load, how to install it, and link off to a few other choice guides on system-level stuff you might want to know as you head off on your adventure.
For more on the game, we've got you covered with our Tower of Fantasy tier list and Tower of Fantasy codes guide. You can use those together with the latest Tower of Fantasy weapons tier list to deck out your character with the best equipment.
Tower of Fantasy download size
As you might imagine, the Tower of Fantasy download size depends entirely on the platform you want to play on. It's worth noting, however, that playing on a phone doesn't automatically make it a single size.
Though you can't seem to refuse downloading things like hi-resolution textures and other assets to keep the file size low, the size will differ on iOS and Android. As they run different operating systems among other little changes, the file sizes are different.
On PC, however, you're looking at a set size of around 25gb once everything is unpacked and installed.
For mobile users, then, how are things looking? On Android, you'll need at least 12GB of free space to get the game up and running. iOS is, miraculously, the same at 12GB, though it's recommended you have 15GB free to keep it running smooth and to allow for post-launch patches.
How to find the Tower of Fantasy download
Finding the Tower of Fantasy download should be easy on iOS and Android: just search for the game in your app store of choice, or click here for the Tower of Fantasy iOS download or here for the Tower of Fantasy Android download from the device you intend to play on.
If you're struggling on Android, you can use a third-party repository like APKPure to the same effect. You'll just have to mess around a little more and also risk downloading something that isn't safe. You've been warned.
On PC, some players have reported issues getting the ToF download to work. The secret is to visit the Tower of Fantasy website in the Edge browser included in Windows.
Click the Windows icon on the website beneath the Tower of Fantasy release date countdown, and you should notice a download popup appear to the right of your address bar. If not, turn off any Adblocker software might have enabled and try again.
Once that goes through, you'll just need to click the finished download to start the Tower of Fantasy install process.
How do I fix my Tower of Fantasy download?
If you lost connection at any point during the Tower of Fantasy download, you might end up with a single corrupt file that stops the game from launching.
On iOS and Android, that's your cue to delete the app and redownload it. On PC, you can just tap the "GAME SETTINGS" text beneath the install/play button and start the automated repair process from there.
When is the Tower of Fantasy preload period?
Tower of Fantasy downloads went live early on August 9 to help budding adventurers download and install the game ahead of the servers going live the following day.
This is what's known as the Tower of Fantasy preload period, and it ends as soon as the game servers start letting players in. After that, you'll be able to download and play without waiting.
And that's about everything there is to say about the Tower of Fantasy download process right now. Whichever platform you're on, you'll want to check the Tower of Fantasy controller support guide if you're not up for using touch controls or mouse and keyboard.
