"Hello,

A staff member has replied to your question:

Hello Sumala,

Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

The release date is determined by the region where you are physically located and is not tied to the version of the game you purchased. The publisher or developer of the title determines the release date for their games. Please refer to the Steam Storepage for this title to determine the release date in your region.

Our records indicate that Tomb Raider will release on March 4th.

Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns."

Wow 4th! Does that mean we will get it from midnight tonight possibly? The timer says unlock in 1 day and 4 hours but like ACM it might change to an earlier time just before release

Well it technically unlocks on the 5th for us Aussies, as soon as it hits the 5th.

If you go onto the store page for TR, there is a countdown for it. I'm on the East coast of Australia and mine says 1day 5 hours

and I hate the always-present hate that it is not what people expected.. especially from someone who bought the game without reading when it comes out and wasting support time in a such manner :)

Oh, please. They're not breaking any Australian consumer laws by following Square-Enix's official release date. Having access to a physical disc doesn't change the fact that the game won't work until it's released.

Doesnt need to be. You agree'd to steam's ToS, in which they use DRM. So you acknowledged, that you agree when steam releases the content.
