    Started unlocking roughly at 00:05 China time. Download size is like 0 MB but HD is working @ 10.5 MB/s to do something... it adds 500 MB to the game size. It's 00:12 and still working, seems half way. Will edit to let you know how long it takes (with an i7-4770 @ 3.40 ghz processor and a Samsung EVO 250 GB SSD).

    EDIT: it seems steam first checks the pre-load (only HD working for like 20 mins) and now is downloading the 500 MB. So now 5 mins left to download (my internet speed is 1.4 MB/s)

    TLDR: 20 mins to unlock pre-load and download with above specs.

    ENJOY ALL and thanks for this months of hard waiting!

    Will be back after the weekend for first games comments. Ciao

    Do you know if they will have a demo upon release for those who want to try it out, especially to test whether the game can work on the computer?

    Hmm, ready to launch in approximately 5 seconds for the last 5 minutes...

    And now I am also confirming that... Perhaps I should cancel my virtual trip for a moment to download... :)
