    And isn't it Denmark anyway? Sounds like a mistake.

    I happened to be home and playing when the Poly DLC came out, and the message was up a few hours before you could really download it.

    expect it about midnight eastern time I imagine. Isn't that were Steam and Firaxis are located (eastern United States?).

    I like Civ V and have been trying to give this game the benefit of the doubt, but it is indeed pretty annoying to have this blatantly incorrect information appearing on the main menu. It doesn't speak well for the quality control.

    Was the same with Polynesia. They obviously added the placeholder in the menu a few hours before it goes up on steam.

    yep, coded in with the patch and I think it appears automatically, based on your computer clock, not some online check.

    It was on there last night. I was stoked thinking I could play the new DLC on my Sunday evening session... but alas, I must wait until tomorrow.
