Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition
Good question! Steam preloading started an hour ago and this store page shows preloading as an option! I also have an unused serial key sign on my game, but cannot click a button to receive the key. So gamersgate is giving the keys out midnight in uk?
I've been wondering about this as well - I noticed the "unused serial key" notification about 2 hours ago - hopefully they'll give us the steam keys sooner rather than later...
According to their Twitter, the keys for Dark Souls will be released tomorrow at some point. Their answer to another user can be found here on Twitter:
Actually, Gamersgate does advertise it for release on the 24th, not the 23rd as other sites do. However, I am hoping this is simply a matter of time zone differences, and the game keys will appear when the product unlocks on Steam in 7 hours, in which it will be the 24th where Gamersgate.
As for pre-load though, that certainly does suck that one is not available.
If the key is for Steam then they could at least give it to us so we can preload over there, I kind of assumed it would be that seeing as it requires Steam.
I'm not too worried about the lack of a preload, but I do hope that our keys will appear once the game unlocks on Steam in a few hours.
GamersGate offers a preload feature on some titles which will allow you to download/access serial keys X hours before the games release. See http://www.gamersgate.com/info/pre-order-bonuses
The pay for Dark Souls PtD Edition does not specify how long of a pre load window they will be giving you, however generally you will be given access to these around 1-3 hours before the launch time. So for those in the UK, the game releases at midnight, the game should unlock for preload ~9PM - midnight on the 23rd.
Not the most ideal time frame but still, better than nothing.
guys, don't expect much from this site when it comes to pre's, yeah you get the 15% ign discount if you have it and blue coins, but their whole pre system is a joke
Open steam, go to games -> activate a product on steam. Put your key in there. Begin preloading and wait for it to unlock. Mine's dling now!
As I said earlier, the games from GamersGate generally let you preload between 1-3 hours before launch. Spot on 1hour to launch, keys are available :)
Enjoy all, I'm going to go and catch some shuteye while it downloads and get an hour or so in before work tomorrow D:
