I have a bad feeling D2D won't release our keys to us until the 21st
Same here, who would have thought the site would be flooded and that it would not be able to handle so many connections?
You cannot play before that either so what is the big deal?
Mostly so I can play the second it's unlocked
For those of you who pre-ordered directly from Steam and are pre-loading, can you view any of the other achievements, or just those 8. If so, please post.
Has anyone with a D2D order found out if/when we get the keys? Waiting to download until release will suck, cause my connection is awful, I'll be waiting all day!
I sent an email to D2D's support. We ARE getting Steam keys because that's the only way this will work, Civ 5 HAS to go through Steam. The only question is when.
It might be improtatn to point out, for anyone that doesn't know, you won't be able to play the game until release.
Yes, which unfortunately for me is Friday the 24th, and I have to go away that weekend. Right now I am thinking pre-order on steam and pre-load. Then on the 24th play civ5 until my eyes bleed. Then sleep until I am rested enough to drive safely, then go.
It is interesting that d2d would make us wait till 21st or the 24th to release the keys since we would have to wait anyways to play the game.
Thanks for the thread. I am pre-loading the game now to my desktop and will load it to my laptop soon after. Here's hoping that my laptop can handle Civ V. maybe my breaks at college won't be so damn-boring.
Steam use very good encryption, so unless you have access to NSA supercomputers you wont be able to decrypt those files before Civ5 is released .
then there's the problem that you need to log into steam before you can play the game, and Steam will probably revoke your account if you play the game before its actually released (even though you rightfully paid for it)
Um, Firaxis/2K might need to be careful. It says on the ad when I load up Steam that the game will be playable on the 21st. But I assume international release date is still 24th?
Thanks for the information by the way, mjs0.
Yes international release is still the 24th.
Should be "Vive La Révolution". Above would literally translate to "living the revolution", which sounds more like a 70s slogan
Damn, I knew that I should have accepted their job offer
I think it's supposed to say that.
Get it? You are yourself are living the revolution by winning as the French?
I'm done on preload
