Which I agree is stupid, but sometimes it works like that.
Yeah also just got my GMG key and pre loaded it in 5 minutes, but now the wait! I wan't to play now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking at the map, poor South Sudan and North Korea, why wont steam let you play?
I bet ya the latter's ideology is too autocratic.
I just received my Steamkey from GMG.
(I preordered from Germany on Oct. 14 with 25% rebate).
GMG's keys have just been emailed out.
It pops up an message about how the game is locked, but I'm starting my preload on Steam, so it's just Steam being annoying.
Done with pre-load yay. XD 5.7GB ain't so bad.
^ not bad at all.
80% downloaded in 18 mins
The fun part is seems like the games gonna unlock first in our region , its usually always US first and everyone else later ...
Hmmm ... weird, mine shows the download as 2.7GB
Mine too, for some reason.
And yeah, when you activate the game, Steam might say it's still locked, but that's not meant to stop you from preloading. Just look for the uninstalled game on your list and hit the PRE-LOAD button.
Mine was 2.7 GB as well... that seems really small.
Well, the files are still compressed (and encrypted), so they may "grow" considerably when unpacked.
Maybe Eisenhart just typo'd. And there's also the possibility of another chunk being downloaded later on, closer to Friday.
My pre-load download was also only 2.7 GB.
Mine was also 2.7 GB. I wonder why. Well, I have a decent broadband so unless bottlenecked I guess it will be alright.
It said the pre-load was 2.7GB, but when it asked where you wanted it installed it said ~5.7GB. The magic of compression.
On a slightly aside note, does anyone know why when Firaxis released XCOM, us poor Europeans were left to wait about 3 extra days than everyone else. You have no idea how much that riled me at the time.
I weep for Iran and Venezuela. I guess there's always proxies. All the more reason to leave this planet!
In those cases, there will most likely be other, easier avenues to procure the game.
log in to your account, go to games library, under steam games you will find your code. its already been released, at least mine has.
