OK to settle the questions out there these are the official release times for the game. Also this is when the Servers open up not specifically when retailers are going to hand out the games as some people in europe will not be recieving there physical copies till the 12th.

PS. all of these times are all started from what sledge posted.
"Servers will unlock on April 2nd 12:01am ET. For those of you in the UK that is 5:01am London time."
Quoted from Sledgehammer70 himself. And yes the daylight savings are included in the UK times

United States

Pacific- 9PM Monday
Mountain- 10PM Monday
Central- 11PM Monday
Eastern 12AM Tuesday

Europe. Tuesday

Same here, but I'm on the west coast, so hopefully I can work my charm and finesse my preorder out of them a few mins prior to closing for the night (9pm) lol.

If I lived in GB I wouldn't mind if it was called Britannia, that sounds rather awesome IMO. You seem rather disgruntled over this.

Only if it's on the 2nd. I already spoke to them, and they refuse to sell the game on Monday to anyone, because they claim Trion can sue them for breach of contract.

Oddly enough, when I asked Sledge if there was any chance Trion would give GS and other retailers the go ahead to sell pre-ordered copies on Monday, he said it wasn't Trion's call.

I spoke to my GS earlier, he said to check back tomorrow and all they would need is an e-mail from Trion giving them the green light Lol. It's not going to happen though to many retailers to reach out to, plus all the same day deliveries would be screwed!

Funny, the launcher says "Welcome to Defiance! The game has not yet launched. We look forward to having you join us on April 2nd at 8am"

I hope they straighten this up, im not waiting up at midnight unless that launcher time changes

Or simply use the countdown timer I made, which counts down to when the servers open...over here... http://superbike32.freehostia.com/Countdowns/Defiance/ it counts to midnight eastern time, giving u 1min to open the game up after you watch it count to 0.

EDIT: It's accurate for all time zones, not just eastern, and uses the time zone of the PC, so as long as your PC's time zone is right, my countdown will be too.

i wished they would open the servers at 0:01 am everywhere :(
since it's opening at 6 am for me and i have to work at 7 am, i just have to wait until i am done i guess xD

Im a little confused about the times. I guess steam doesnt account for this at all. My steam says 1 day till unlock and i live on the west coast. So the servers open at 9pm tonight on the west coast but because of steam i cant play until tomorrow morning? This seems a little messed up.

you can use the dev tracker forum to find sledges post pretty easy

I think the confusion may just stem from that post and what is written in the launcher

Wouldn't it be handy if the time zone starts were listed in the launcher :), but then with any mmo there are no guarantees, last minute things that creep up right at launch could postpone it a few hours, just saying, ya never know

clearly I am rooting for sledges post time as it is only about 10 hours from now
