    Did you go from 3am or midnight? it's coming out 3am instead of midnight in AEDT for some reason.

    I just googled it cause I don't math, too much braining involved, but maybe I screwed up with the days, I'm heavily medicated.

    I deleted my post. I was thinking non-VPN downloads.

    For those Mac players, I just contacted Aspyr and they said that they don´t have an ETA for the game on Mac. The pre-download is a placeholder that will expand on release day. They said, "We're working on getting it out the same day as PC but there's no promises right now. As soon as we know, you'll know on Facebook and Twitter." I really hope we get to enjoy it same release days and times.

    FWIW, I got two keys. One for the Deluxe Edition and one for the Aztecs.
    (Not GMG, different shop, but I guess it's the same everywhere?)

    This pre-load business is cruel. There's now a Civ VI icon sitting on my desktop, but when I click on it tells me, "Nope! Not a chance, bub!" (Well, maybe that's not quite the exact wording. . . .)

    Great news! Game pre-downloaded. Now, where is that "Pre-play" button? :hmm:

    "They" always forget about this feature. But "they" will say "it's not a bug it's a feature". Bad persons are "they".

    Isn't the download a compressed file that will unpack itself on your PC. So 3.9 GB compressed can easily become 12 GB.

    They're not always released all at once. Unless I'm remembering wrong (which is possible), I'm pretty sure the pre-load for XCom2 was parcelled out piece by piece over a few days.

    Preloading now, hopefully they'll annouce the Deluxe contents and the hype will be complete.

    What exactly is the "Digital Deluxe"? Like what's included besides the Aztecs?

    Don't forget the 25th Anniversary Soundtrack is also included in the Digital Deluxe version.

    I confirm that the preloading has started in India as well.
