    Steam pre-loads

    Hey all,

    So we're now just a day or two away from global Steam release. I Am Excite.

    One of the things that's expected these days is a pre-load, so that people that have preordered the game download it prior to release, and it's there ready and waiting Day One.

    It's something we're wanting to do, but it means that we're gonna have to lock out the current 'default' branch of pCARS once we flip the switch for pre-load. That means that you lovely WMD members aren't going to be able to play the game for a day or so prior to its official global release.

    I know it's a pain in the arse, but it's for the greater good. We want people new to pCARS and its community to have a great first experience.

    All cool?

    I assume as well that when it "releases" the WMD login screen is gone.

    When you feel that the road is escaping you, when you say to yourself, "That's it, I'm going off",
    but then instead you stay on the track, that's when you reached your limit;you've gone as fast as you could.

    Fixed that for you. My exact thoughts by the way, although I wanted to practice with the FA some more at Catalunya, to get into the mood for the weekend.

    Slightly off-topic, but is there any news about the digital version of the BTS book? If so, I missed it.
