So basically i'm thinking of pre-ordering fallout 4, and i was just wondering at what time would it come out for me if i did get it. Recently gamestop told me if i pre-ordered with them that they can release the game at 9:00 PM (West Coast PST) instead of 12 anymore. Does that same thing go for Steam as well?

    Gamestop can only sell you a box with a DVD containing part(!) of the game files and a steam key, meaning that the steam unlock time will be paramount. Gamestop selling you the box earlier might allot you time to install the game. – MrLemon Nov 6 '15 at 16:45
  • In this case i failed to mention that gamestop was going to sell me the xbox one version of the game at 9pm, i did this with the Halo 5 release and got to play it at 9:20 when everything was installed – Derb Nov 6 '15 at 16:53

Games on Steam generally unlock at 10am US Pacific time on the day of release.

So, depending on the time of year, either 10am PST (-0800) or 10am PDT (-0700).

  • Thanks for the fast response! and yeah i pre-ordered and its starting show the time on steam. Still thanks for the response! – Derb Nov 6 '15 at 16:51
