You can't.

 The whole idea of PRE LOAD is to let you load the game without fighting for bandwith with everyone else once the game launches. Because that will result in slow speed and you need time to download it too.

With preload, once it is released, you can play it.

And do not circumvent this rule because you will violate their TOS. Besides there is NO WAY to play a pre-loaded Steam game.

-_- you used text from my comment in ur comment. But in other words...
That's bullshit.
I typed everything out. Unless you've copyright "STEAM", "PRELOAD", "PORTAL 2".
Don't accuse me of something like that.

AND WHICH PART OF MY POST IS SIMILAR TO YOURS? I POSTED BEFORE YOU AND YOU SAID I STOLE YOUR WORDS? I EDITED "WITH" TO "WITHOUT" BECAUSE OF SPELLING ERROR, MORON.

And my reply was marked with a star way before you posted, you dick.
don't cry you fassy :L
:L :L :L :L :L
...
"Don't cry you fassy" Wtf is wrong with you? How childish are you, really? Saying that only makes you even more ridiculous, not him, as he actually had an ARGUMENT to get back with, while you had none, so you just went with "Don't cry." That is the stupidest thing i have ever seen, and you deserve a punch to the face.
Jesus you're a gigantic wuss aren't you? OH NO HELP CYBER POLICE I THINK I'VE JUST BEEN TROLLED!
Yeah, other more intelligible words.

Well this isn't possible , and it never will. sorry.

Steam let user pre-load games so they can play the game when it comes out , also that they reduce the bandwith for downloading on the release date :D.
