Ok, so Space Marine is getting a Demo. All Platforms, and the PC demo hits the same day as the 360 demo, with the PS3 Demo coming out the next day.
PC and 360 demo - August 23rd
PS3 Demo - August 24th.
So far, so awesome..Players who have pre-ordered the digital PC version of Space Marine through Steam will receive an exclusive early access period starting on the 18th of August, running through the weekend. Steam will also be running a Warhammer 40,000 bundle sale at a very special rate during the same period. Check out STEAM for more details.
However.. As I previously posted HERE, the game cannot be pre-purchased via Steam for anyone in the UK.
Any and all requests for this to be corrected, or even for an answer as to why (I believe even Mr Rossignol asked THQ to comment) have been totally ignored and met with silence.
So...We're not able to pre-order the game from Steam in the UK. They won't fix it, or tell us why..
and now there's EARLY ACCESS to the Demo on offer for anyone who pre-ordered Space Marine via Steam...
And we're unable to do anything about this.
Honestly, I'm starting to lose all faith in Relic/THQ over this. Utterly disgusting and unforgivable treatment of their UK customers.
For god's sake..Warhammer 40k was INVENTED here in Britian, as Games Workshop are a British company!
Please, I am appealing the mighty RPS Hive Mind and to any/everyone who may be able to help..
Please, look into this problem for me/us? Can this be fixed? If not, why not? Why is this allowed to happen at all?
This is the one game I am looking forward to more than any other video game in my 30 years of life, only rivalled by Dark Millennium Online (which is still a couple years away yet)
That's not hyperbole, or exaggeration..
This is really taking the fun out of it. :(
*Edit* - Posted about this on the Steam Forums as well.
