Early Access Total War: Pharaoh - Start and times
If you buy Total War: Pharaoh as a Steam key on Gamesplanet, you will receive it immediately and can redeem it without any detours. A key that unlocks the pre-order access and also the pre-order bonuses.
Restart Steam completely after redeeming the key and after the start of Early Access to ensure access to Total War: Pharaoh from Friday, 29 September at 1pm BST and you can play until October 2nd (same time). Don't be sad, because after that there are only a few days left until the release.
For the installation you need at least 50 GB of free space on your data carrier (which hopefully is not a stone tablet).
Total War: Pharaoh's full version will be playable from October 11th and anyone who pre-orders will get the bonus The Avatar of the Gods and Heart of the Shardan cosmetic packs.
