    Do we need a steam account to download and play the demo?

    Beats me. It'd be nice if I could use my pre-download for the demo but I'm pretty sure that isn't happening. Probably a button to download the demo will show on teh product screen once the time comes.

    :lol: In 150 turns the game ends right when it starts to become interesting to play on... Clever marketing´s all.

    Demos have always been marketing ploys to entice players into buying the full version. Give them a taste, but leave the good stuff out!

    I just want to play the demo purely to see the graphical improvement because I think it's gonna be hard to judge much else in 150 turns. I wonder how many barbarians will spawn on the standard map size in that time?

    Didn't see this thread. Got up early this morning (5am) to get a few turns in before work to realize that it doesn't come out until 10AM. So disappointing. Now I have to wait until I get out of class at 8pm, and I'm tired.

    2pm GMT. Britain is currently in BST which is GMT+1, so 3pm for Britain, 4pm for mainland Europe.

    I've downloaded civ5 already via steam, but will the demo run off that or need a separate installation?

    Depends when it unlocks for you. If it unlocks in 23/24 you might need to download the demo. If it unlocks today, no point on downloading the demo.
