it is designed so that you cant play it till the game comes out. (Maybe ask a modder)

You will have to wait until the game is released ^^ simple as that.

Steam lets people preload the game before the game is actually released so that on release date not everyone needs to download at the same time. If they do all download at the same time their website can crash. Also preload makes you ready for the game so you can instantly play once the game is released.

 

The game will be released on Tuesday 19 April 2011

you gotta wait til it comes out on April 19, steam allowed you to preload it so that you can play at the exact second it comes out.

That is the whole idea of PRELOAD. It is locked till release.

Steam won't be so stupid to let anyone play it before launch otherwise it will end up on torrent sites.

As of today the only way to play it early is to get the Potato Sack bundle.

As soon as the timer on this site runs out:

The game will unlock. You can play it then. Have fun!

You will also have to encrypt game files downloaded with Pre-Load.
