    at steam, cost: 55 Euros, release June 09th (our wedding day and the day before my daughter marries, so fat chance I will get to play it anytime it comes out, but hey, it's just a game :) )

    Only way to find out is play yourself. It's depends on how much you like a game.

    figured dirt rally made them see the light, so this being crap seems not very likely.

    No I normally wait for reviews first. I'll see what folks on here have to say about it.

    I'm not a fan of pre orders but I actually did order this one.
    If you enjoyed DR I bet you're going to like D4. The devs are the best example how to interact with a community of customers. Very honest and open about issues, answering questions on the official forum every day.

    I don't care if I could have bought it cheaper somewhere else. I'll gladly give them support for being in the right direction.

    Why would you preorder something digital? Its not like steam is gonna run out of keys or something. Unless there's DLC for free, there's no point in preordering something digital.

    It's the hype. The fact you own something. The feeling you get when it suddenly arrives in your library. It's all about the feeling.

    Totally understand your point. In this case the pre-orders get the Hyundai i20 R5. It's unclear if it will be available later for those who did not pre-order. My bet is that it will, but maybe at a cost.

    I'm not really fond on how the marketing people do these things, but in this case I went for the pre-order anyways.

    first day buy anyway, so with one more free car to begin the game with, why not pre-order? never done this before in my life, actually.
