Midnight release. Like exactly midnight, wherever you live, whatever timezone it unlocks at 12:00 am. So for some people it will be the day before when others are playing, hence November 10.

The game is releasing by zones

For example in NA the game releases at 12:00AM EST 11/11/11, 11:00PM CST 11/10/11, 10:00PM MST 11/10/11, and 9:00 PM PST 11/10/11

The release time is specific to your region and should unlock around midnight of the 10th, in theory ticking over just at 11/11/11 starts. Don't trust the Steam timers and countdowns too much though there have been issues reposted from Beth.

DCDeacon recent said they changed their plan from midnight in every timezone to midnight EST.

I can't get on twitter to link at the moment, but he said this very, very recently.

Oh I'm sorry. That was just for the USA.

I'm not sure about the rest of the world. It's probably still midnight for you.

I gotta say Bethesda is putting a surprisingly high amount of care into this release date thing.

Historically most companies just say something like "The game unlocks at 1pm PST. Deal with it."

Aussies actually are getting it first.

There are three separate unlocks, Aus, Europe, and America.

Depending on exactly where you live within those regions, you may be getting it before or after midnight.

Yeah that's what was happening the last time I checked. But Mr USA-is-the-whole-world earlier made me freak out a little with his EST post.

Actually steam doesn't round off the hours. I'm pretty sure it's 11pm for you.

It actually should release 11P.M. on the 10th. It releases 12A.M. EST, so we( I am also central) get it at 11.

Not true my friend! Pete Hines confirmed that Aussies get it
FIRST. It's on here somewhere. Or on his DCDeacon tweet-o-sphere.

By the way - thank you for Australian Rules Football, my favorite sport.

@Mel_Ell @Nitelust No, it's available 12:01am YOUR TIME. Meaning Aussies get it first. (Bethesda is not located in Australia. So that's another -1 of your "conclusion")

Pete Hines said they are working on to fix the time thing on Steam. It seems they did it. He also said on his tweet that somewhere in US the game will release on 10th 9PM.

Well even if that was the case it would make sense considering that Bethesda is east coast USA based.

Doesnt matter what anyone from Bethesda says, as of right now the game will not be released at 12:01 on your local time. Pacific and Central users will get it before 12:01, as of right now. And I've never pre-ordered a game on steam or even origin for that matter where I wasnt able to play before 12:01, and im Pacific.

I strongly doubt steam's desire and capability to block specific users based on location, only to allow them to play it on their local time at the time of release. Bethesda is dreaming if they think steam is going to go through the tedious process of changing the release date individually for each user. There is no way to "use local time release" on steam. There never has and there never will. They would have to individually go through and switch it to everyone's account, and i doubt steam is willing to do that. So as it looks, we all get it at the same REALTIME and not at our local times and im willing to bet it will stay that way. The people in the pacific will enjoy playing at 9 or 10 while you people on the East Coast will have it at 12. It's only fair because every show on TV is live for you guys and we have to watch the re-broadcast on the West because they dont want to lose their East Coast audience by putting an 8:00 pm show on at 11:00pm in the East. Only fair we get video games.

Same here, and for some reason people think thats a lie or think this will change. It wont change, and everyone in pacific will ALWAYS get it at 9.

I'm kind of glad I didn't pre-order from Steam, to get the game earlier... I would have to suffer even more waiting for 9PM to approach. I know waiting is not that big of a deal, but if it's near, you become restless even more intensely.

preorder is nothing to do with wait. we already know official release date is 11/11. you don't have to play it right away shortly after release. it's not like ♥♥♥♥ing race. you have tons of time to enjoy it. I preordered many games before. I wasn't rush to play them right away. I took my time when it was available. waiting is not deal to me. date is coming anyway. only bunch of kids here can't wait to play it at release date.

Don't see how this is a shock to anyone the west coast always gets a game unlocked at 9pm pst when the release date is set for midnight for the east coast, only a few rare occasions does west coast get a midnight release on steam.

You're quite correct, which is exactly what Bethesda has been saying for a while now. There will be three different unlocks worldwide. One for Australia, one for Europe, and one for America. Many people will receive it before or after midnight depending on where they are within those regions.

Actually this is incorrect from the latest twitter statements. The game is being released per region,but only one time zone per region. so the US will all unlock at the same time. Right now the last statement has the US releasing the game at 12 AM EST, which means pst/cst will have access it on the 10th.

They are releasing it so that everyone in the US gets it at the same time.

I'm sure it's setup the same way for other countries and places as well.

Assuming you are actually in the time zone it's release clock is based on, I wouldn't worry about the clock being accurate right now. Also, keep in mind that waiting for a retail copy may not save you any time in the long run. You'll miss the preload, so you'll still have to install and download the patches when you get home (while a million other people are hammering the servers too).
