Stellaris' release time

Hi all,

Stellaris is scheduled to be available to play on Steam around -
9th May, 18:00 CEST

If you translate this to your timezone, you will have your release time!

As already stated in a previous thread, there will be no pre-load for Stellaris.

Cheers

Bugger, guess I have to wait till Tuesday then. Why everything has to be on American hours, I don't know. May 9th is 18 hours old at 18.00 GMT.

Oh well, I guess I'll live.

The majority of game releases in the past have always followed this release method. GTA5 for instance.

Incorrect. GTA V for PC was available on Steam at 00:00 GMT on the day it was released, I remember because I was up all night playing it. XCOM 2, another massive release, was also available at midnight on the day of release in GMT. If the community want an explanation as to why you have chosen to do this, then please try and give one without relying on "This is what everybody does", especially when it is NOT what everybody does.

I got mixed up, GTA5 did it slightly differently. However, majority of games do release when the store page updates on Steam.

For those who don't know how to translate the time, just google "18:00 GMT to CST", if you are in Central Standard Time for example. So around 1PM I'll be remoting into my home PC and downloading this for when I get off work!

I haven't wanted to play a game so badly since Diablo II first came out. I've even pouted about this weekend wait lol. So I hope like hell there won't be any issues due to a lack of pre-loading.

99.9% of the titles on Steam get released 1pm EDT/EST. the only exceptions are some AAA titles. But in general 1pm EDT/EST is standard.

Generally this is so Steam is available for devs in case the go live goes south for any reason (store issue/price issues/etc). Which is why steam doesn't release games on the weekend either (Punch Club as an example)
