Skyrim - Unlocks Midnight
 
Apparently the Steam countdown for Skyrim is off for some people, so CountChocula sends in this twitter confirmation from Pete Hines they intend to unlock at 12:01:

@Nitelust Our plan is 12:01 am est. Dunno why the clock differs. But that is our plan still. I'll check on it.
More information.

It seems Pete Hines posted another tweet indicating the game will unlock at 12:01am in each individual time zone.

I have never heard of Steam doing something like that with dozens of different unlock times, so it seems more likely that it will turn out to be 12:01am EST. This was precisely the time that RAGE unlocked (12:01am EST / 9:01pm PST for US/Canada).

However, I suppose it is also possible Bethesda made some sort of unprecedented special arrangement with Valve to have the Skyrim unlock at 12:01am in every individual time zone, as indicated in the subsequent tweet above.

That's odd, but pretty cool if I was getting this through Steam. I'm waaayyyy ahead of most of you guys :) Except for the Australians here.

I've tried to ignore all the recent videos and hype…. But my vacation is planned, and I expect to be fully immersed when this game is out.

Thaurin October 31st, 2011 14:49

And I expect first impressions from everyone as soon as possible!!

Twotricks October 31st, 2011 16:09

But in 11 days from now or ?

You are giving impressions like its today ?!

Gragnak October 31st, 2011 16:16

We are talking about the download thing, right?
The game will be unlocked on11-11-11 right?
No way to play it before?

DArtagnan October 31st, 2011 16:39

Not legally, unless you've got a review copy.

Gragnak October 31st, 2011 16:46

I intend legally, yes.
Anyway, I'll wait the gamers reviews on this forum before buying it.

Oblivion was such a delusion…

Gotta resist the temptation :S

I wasnt gonna, but I think I'm going to have to.
All the cool kids are going to be doing it.

wolfgrimdark October 31st, 2011 18:46

Just ordered on Steam. Since its a 3-day weekend for me this was good news. Been a few years since I was this excited about a game! Takes 20 years off me :-)

crpgnut October 31st, 2011 19:18

Like Dart, I've got vacation set aside for Skyrim. I work Friday, 11-11, but I'm off the whole following week. Should be able to get a hundred hours in if I play my cards right.

Carnifex October 31st, 2011 19:19

I'm praying it doesn't suck. After the letdown that was DA2, we need something good!! My pc will actually get a workout, as the spiderweb games don't really push the envelope too far on computer reqs, but man, they do make some sweet rpg's!!!

Well, you ARE getting it through Steam. If I understand correctly it's a Steamworks game, so even if you were getting the boxed game early, there's no way to play it.
For those of us getting a boxed copy, the disc is little more than a token.
I find this a bit frustrating.

Alrik Fassbauer October 31st, 2011 20:11

11:11 in the morning on 11-11 is the traditional time when the "official beginning" of German's Carnival is being declared - I'm surprised they didn't use that time ! ;)

you are certainly entitled to your own opinion, but you guys are joking, right? I just don't see how it will be so bad that it would warrant a pass. If you are a true RPG fan then it should be an easy decision, and you would have pre-ordered it already.

waiting for a review from the peeps here before buying are for games like Legend of Grimrock and other indie games. Holding off on Skyrim? Really?

I feel the same as you. It's been a long time since I felt like this about a game and it makes me feel like a kid again. Priceless! I look at it as more than just playing a video game, it's a hobby.

sakichop October 31st, 2011 22:28

I won't have my copy by then anyway. I must have a boxed copy.

fadedc October 31st, 2011 22:33

Well for myself I don't think I have ever loved a TES game. I didn't even buy oblivion, I liked Morrowind but I definitely had a lot of issues with it, and I thought Daggerfall was a total train wreck. I did think that Arena was pretty good for the time though.

With that being said I may still get Skyrim when it first comes out just so I can form my own opinion on it. I'm sure I will get at least some entertainment value from it.
