    Aussies are getting it 8 hours earlier than that.

    I'd say the unlock times are based on region/timezone. We're getting it at midnight local time. :D

    Oh, that's pretty good!

    Does anyone know if it is staggered for the small differences in timezones across Europe? The link I gave was according to the release time indicated on the BNW page on Steam (I'm in the UK). I was assuming Steam would do what they've done in the past and lump everyone not in North America into the GMT release time.

    But I do remember that the last game I pre-ordered I had to wait several hours into the day because it was randomly decided to unlock globally after midnight PDT. :cry:

    But nice to see they're not just lumping everyone into the same zone for Civ!

    Really annoying that it's being released so late outside North America. Typical Yankee racism. Moderator Action: Don't troll around like this.

    Right, because we're racist against Europeans. :hmm:

    From what I understand it's Europe's brick and mortar stores causing the problem, not some kind of American conspiracy.

    Actually [off topic] you are. We didn't miss Rick Santorum telling lies about us intentionally killing elderly people, that actually made the headlines in all newspapers. Or Fox news telling lies about the state of our country.

    Edit: I'll also just leave it at that, before the topic derails.

    I agree with the sentiment, but to nitpick: this picture misquotes the line ;)

    Still ... even given the onions you should be safe, but it's a matter of principle!

    Yeah it wasn't smooth:mischief: afterwards I figured it to be a reply that could create some debate which could kill the topic. So yeah I'll just leave it at that even if others reply to it.

    Ontopic again? So the whole worlds unlocks BNW on the exact same moment or are there different regions?

    No - North America gets it in about 13 hours or so. Here's the timer for you and I.

    With the whole world I actually meant those unfortunate not to be living in NA :p I can imagine that they can start playing a few hours earlier in for example New-Zealand or Japan.
