    It'd be awesome if we got videos that early. Though I do have the Resident Evil 2 remake to help me over until February 14th.

    Marbozir's R&F preview was uploaded on January 22, R&F was released on February 8. Considering that GS come out on February 14, my guess is that we will get the previews starting on January 28.

    When GS was announced, a Let‘s Player said he will stream it in the second half of January. I don‘t think this is set in stone though, as an exact date might not have been set at that point or it might have been just a guess on his part.

    I'm guessing you missed this thread because it's already been bumped to the 2nd page.

    Quill18 said he has time to get one more game/YouTube series before GS, so that should tell you something.

    there may be some limited activity soon. Like short sessions. Just a hunch based on some people traveling.

    Looking back at a few old videos, it looks like streamers were only allowed to publish their preview games of Rise and Fall 1 week before the launch date. If this brief research is correct, then I would guess it will be AFTER all of the Civs are announced by Firaxis. Since the final First Look should go live on Feb 5th, it might not be until the 6th or 7th of February that they are seen. :(

    My bad, I'm not sure how I missed this... So yes, if they made preview copies off of the limited Marketing Build branch, they could come earlier than Feb 6.

    Yeah I think they were allowed to play the first 50 or so turns? I'd have to go back and check. Some people are traveling soon, I hope that means something soon, but will depend on what the blackout agreement is.

    It makes sense for streamers to only be allowed to play GS only after all the new Civs have been revealed, otherwise a new First Look would be spoiled if we knew that Civ was in the game.

    I think the "first 50 turns" was the very very very first preview of the base game, Civ6, where people were allowed to play as China on a specific seed sharing a continent with America and Egypt. I'm sure the Rise & Fall preview was lifted to 150 turns from the 22nd onward (where they played it in advance, but couldn't publish or talk about it until the 22nd.) of course, a week before the release they were allowed to play and talk about the whole game with all 9 new leaders.

    I seem to recall a term limit for R&F previews, but I could be mixing that up with vanilla previews.

    I do recall that the R&F preview build didn't include the Zulu, who were revealed last. However, the Ikanda was in the civilopedia, spoiling the reveal for those paying close attention.

    A couple of weeks, perhaps a few days less, is a very reasonable guess, IMO.

    I think the previews came out the same week as Scotland. I recall Quill18 being very excited about it on his livestream the Wednesday after the First Look, which was January 24th.

    Edit: I just looked at my notes from last year. I recorded the media embargo lifting on January 22nd, a Monday. Scotland FL was delayed to Wednesday as a result. And Quill18's livestream was on the same day as the FL.

    Scotland, Mapuche, and Zulu were all announced after the embargo lifted.

    Please observe, there are only 4 civ/leaders left to announce. So if GS follows the same pattern, the embargo would lift on the 21st.

    Speaking of Quill18, he's in San Francisco today, where 2K HQ is.
