So I per-ordered Hitman awhile ago, and on the store page, for me, it has always said "Available: 19 November 2012" But every trailer I watch says the 20th. So now, I've pre-loaded the game on Steam, and it says it'll be out in 1 hour. "Available: 19 November 2012
This game will unlock in approximately 1 hour"

I just want to know, is this correct? Should I wait an hour and will I be able to play? Or will I be disappointed an have to play tomorrow?

Give it a few minutes.

Okay I did. Now it's saying "Pre-Load Complete; Unreleased."

are having the same problem, but it's working for some of them. (Page 10 + )

Did it say unreleased for you at all?

Yeah, I don't understand what's going on here. Steam keeps changing their story all the time. First they say I can play the game at 9:00 pm tonight (I live in Van Nuys, California United States).

Then at 5:00m pm Pacific Standard Time, the Play button for Absolution becomes available. So I click on it. It proceeds to update the game in which I am assuming to be the day-one patch that IOI has talked about.

Then Steam says Absolution won't unlock for another 7 hours which is 12:00 am midnight where I am.

Then the update finishes and Steam changes the unlock time yet again to 4 hours. Which means again 9:00 pm.

And the Play button is gone and has been replaced with the Pre-load button again.

What the hell? Steam can't make up it's mind.
