Default Australian Steam realease?

Could some one in Oz please check the release date on steam.

After weeks of being april 1st I checked from work and now it's saying 20th April.

(I'm hoping that it's just having a fit picking up the location of my work IP)

This would really be frustrating as I've cot my physical copy and just waiting for the game to be unlocked!

Cheers!

I'm flying now!!!!

I bought the CE from EB, got a call yesterday saying it was ready for me to pick up. Installed it and found there was an issue with the CD-Key. I lodged a ticket with Steam Support and was checking it all day.

I get home now, there's still no reply to my ticket but when loading up Steam I found I got a new CD-Key and bingo ... I'm buzzing the Cliffs Of Dover!

Steam can assign a new CD-Key to any game you have in your account.

Mine still says 1st April release... One of my squadmates got the disc, installed and went off to Steam to validate...15 minute download and when he fired up his game got a message that it wasn't available till 20th April... he's sent a "please explain" off to Steam

Cheers

I installed it directly from the DVD. If you have steam already installed you should be able to cancel the Steam installation and proceed to install IL-2.

Contrary to what many may have thought from a recent UBI message about "no additional software will be needed", many thought that CoD could run without Steam, CoD can not run without Steam, I think what UBI was trying to say is "All the software you need is on the DVD". So if you don't have Steam installed you need to install that first.

This happened to me to. Received my review copy but CD key was invalid for activation. But it worked after a couple of hours. Didn't think much about until i saw this thread. I checked and indeed i received a different CD key from steam.
Looks like there is a problem with some of the cd keys then!
