On February 4, 2008 Sins of a Solar Empire will be released. So how exactly is this going to proceed?
1) For those of you who pre-ordered:
If you pre-ordered the game but were NOT in the beta tomorrow afternoonish, Eastern Standard Time, the orders will begin to be processed. There are thousands of pre-orders to be processed so it will take some time. Here's the insta-answer to this question "I haven't received my email yet!" answer: It hasn't been sent to you yet. The pre-orders should complete being processed by 8pm EST. If you haven't received an email, then check your various spam filters. Otherwise, go HERE, type in your email and it should email you all info we have on you.
2) Get Stardock Central
To download the game, you will need Stardock Central. Your email will include instructions on creating a Stardock.net account (that's the account you use to logon to this website and post and such). If you want to get a head start, you can go here.
3) If you had a beta version
If you were one of the beta testers, first, thank you for your help! Sometime tomorrow afternoon v1.01 will appear on Stardock Central. That is the latest version. You will need to uninstall your existing beta first.
4) If you are buying it at a store
Once you install it and have it running, you will need to update to v1.01 to play on-line. Click on the "update game" button on the main menu and you'll be taken to where you can download the v1.01 patch. The patch is only 11 megs so don't worry.
5) If you are downloading the full game
We have leased some mega-super-duper high speed lines for the launch week. It should (better) download really REALLY fast regardless of how many people are buying.

Is there any word of a demo or anything?
Does the downloadable version require Stardock Central running once it's downloaded and installed (Like Steam does for example), or does it function independently? Also, I assume physical media version doesn't use Stardock Central at all?
