    The Netherlands seems very quick (and cheap :D) with these pre-orders, so many sites for such a small country ;) I'm pre-ordering immediately!

    The Canadian Amazon link you gave is for the Vanilla version of Civilization 5. The EB Games link, however, is correct.

    Yep, after my Steam purchase of G&K, I'll definitely be going down this route for BNW :).

    How long did it take for G&K to be up on Steam?

    I think it was really close to release date when it came on Steam.

    Edit:
    G&K was released on june 19, the pre-order was available on may 28th, so about three weeks before release. So expect it to be on Steam around the 18th of june (if they keep the same schedule).

    Just a small correction:

    Germany:
    Amazon.de
    Gameware.at is Austrian

    To the topic: I think as an Non-American nobody should preorder this addon. The international release is just three days to late and I remember the same issue at the G&K-release where you could buy an American-key for the addon at macupdate.com and were able to play three days ahead of the official international release without any restrictions in language or multiplayer.

    Updated. Also added Amazon.co.uk for the people in UK.

    Updated. In fact both DE and AT are to Amazon.de - which also delivers in Austria.
    Regarding your release issue, I'm not sure what specific issue you are referring to.

    You could buy a G&K-key at macupdate.com and could play G&K three days prior to the official international release on June 22nd, 2013 (American release was June, 19th). But if you preordered at Steam (or if you had to wait for the shipping of your boxed version), you had to wait.

    Yes.
    Maybe, but I'm not sure, it can even be downloaded earlier and unlocked on release date (so you don't have to download on release day).
    (Does anyone remember if G&K had preloading?)

    It didn't because it's considered a DLC.

    Nah, it didn't have pre-DL.

    This gentleman got the right idea.

    Ah. Well, the difference between 9th and 12th July is Tuesday or Friday in the same working week. Won't have time to play until the weekend anyway. Plus I like to buy local. But when macupdate.com starts selling BNW, I'll add it to the list.

    Steam pre-order is usually added a few weeks before release. I have no idea why 2k is always so slow to add their new releases on Steam.

    No. But it went live at 12:01 EST, which meant I was playing by 12:45.
