If you mouse over the Stage number you’re on, you can see the progress bar.
Game play will be limited* during the first stage but you can check the status of the download on a widget on the bottom right corner near the skills bar. You can use the widget to restart the game in Stage 2 and Stage 9 to complete the installation process.
When the all the stages have been successfully downloaded, click Install Game.
