Hi
I can see that a lot of players have already downloaded and installed a game from a steam(if they can activate fm is another question). I predownloaded the game but in the store a release date is still set to 21 November(so I can't install the game). This is what I received from "Steam support":

"Release dates are set in part by the publishers/developers of third-party games on Steam.
Unfortunately you will need to wait until the 21st of November for the game to be unlocked."

I haven't seen any announcement by SI, so was it intended is it a bug or something else??

Are you located in the UK or elsewhere?

The box-game release date in Poland is set to 21. But I think that steam shouldn't "care" if I am from Poland or Uk . Can something be done about that??

hm. There's masses available at the moment to criticise SI for, but this appears that it's Steam just sticking to the release date in Poland? Unless it was a global release date, which I don't think it is.

STEAM recognizes your IP and knows you're from Poland. As the game there will only be released on 21st, there's nothing much you can do beside wait... It's only one week from now. I think you'll survive :)
