Unless someone's seen something I haven't, it looks like you can't pre-download the client. I guess we're waiting 4 more days for Beta 2 to start. :)

I have a key for this upcoming weekend, can't find a place to download the client at all but I'm sure it'll be available closer to the date. Looking forward to this; looks most epic.
