If you bought the game already, you can start preloading by going to the game in your library and starting the download for it. However, it should do it automatically right after purchasing the game if you a console player.

For PC, you are going to need to find the game in your library like we stated or do it from the store menu. It will also sometimes say preload instead of install if you are on Steam.
