Does anyone know when the game will drop on the 24th? (Edit: Preload is now up)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
