I have just been to 3 stores in the UK (GAME, Zavvi and HMV) and checked a few web sites too and they all say the 13th June. Does anyone know if this is official or am I just going to be disappointed next week?

So you've at the very least quadruple checked and still don't believe it?

It is indeed the 13th.

play.com will release it on Wednesday to arrive either Thursday* or the pre-allotted Friday. Looks like this WON'T be an unlucky Friday 13th!

(* My copy of Mass Effect arrived on the Thursday and was the first person on the UK Achievement Leaderboards!)

To sum up... it's released on FRIDAY 13TH JUNE 2008.

ok, so I know this sounds a little stupid, but it is in Q3 releases on this site and some other 360 sites have it at a US release of 8th July.

Edit: I guess after years of my American friends playing stuff weeks before me, just made me assume we were getting it after the US. So it is July 8th in the US and June 13th in the UK!

Y-E-S! Finally, us Europeans get something decent before you Americans! And considering Sid Meier is an American, you'd have thought us Europeans would've been left behind, again! Su-f*cking-perb!

THERE. IS. A. GOD! HALLELUJAH!

(Sorry, but we don't get this very often; we have to milk it while we can!)

I thought this was coming out on June 8th, so i went on to Play.com and i ordered it but it came up at a Pre-order for June 13th. Woo.

I cannot wait for this game.

Here's a hint...
- Research POTTERY + MASONRY + MATHS, then ALPHABET + WRITING.
- Get 3, or if possible 4, cities (with a decent distance apart & roads!) all creating CATAPULTS and SPYS. (Rush if you have to!)
- Kill away!

(A base army of CATAPULTS is 30 attack, with the SPY reducing defences, all 3 cities are an easy target if you're ROMAN and you start at the TOP start-point! You can't make it up to the top in time if you start at the BOTTOM start-point. Remember; roads between cities cost 1 move, even if it transports you half-way across the map!)

Look out for more Civ:Rev strategies from the one-true Sid Meier fan over the next few weeks! (Pirates, though, is STILL my favourite!)

play.com say that product is in stock and "usually dispatched within 24 hours"
might give it a go doesn't say anything about pre order.

Correct; play.com will release the game tomorrow, but because post from Jersey has to pass customs, it won't reach UK sorting offices until Thursday night; ready for 1st post Friday morning.
Sometimes (if you're dang lucky) it gets through quicker and it arrives Thursday morning... like my Mass Effect SE did!

I got mass effect a day early too, but my 360 was sent away the day before it came lol

I played the demo, and tbh it was good but no way am I spending the full 30 quid on it

PS: We get Alone in the Dark before the Americans too

I have an idea! How about both games are released at the same time for both countries?

No wait.

That's crazy talk.

so you think this will work for a pre 1000ad victory on king?

Herasy!Games will only ever be released on one continent at a time!Days, sometimes weeks or months apart!:p

Possibly, but I'd wager that this needs to be a DIPLOMATIC victory, rather than a CONQUEST. Also, the name 'That We May Live in Peace' could be another subtle clue!

LOL, yeah maybe i should read the NAME of the achievement instead of just the description!

Lucky son of a...

Unfortunately, I am an American, so one more month for me. Looks like Europe gets one before us (like ArmA). And as the others said, releasing the games on the same date everywhere is "crazy talk, it can't be done" (Civilizations IV quote, get it?).
