Welcome to the 3rd in a Series explaining things to our new friends from Microsoft Land.
Today's topic is about Release Times. NOT from pitcher's hand to catcher's mitt, but when SDS typically releases new content.
Launch Night: Midnight EDT.
If you ordered one of the Jackie versions, you can expect to start playing...
Eastern Time: Midnight Friday morning
Central: 11PM Thursday night
If you ordered a Tatis version:
Physical copy: whenever you get it. DD and all other modes will be live due to early access.
Digital copy: Midnight Tuesday morning (E)
11pm Monday Night (C)
Content Drops: Typically Noon PT (3pm ET)
Content Drops last year were mostly on Tuesdays and Fridays. They typically give 24 hours notice via Twitter.
Daily Login Rewards: 8pm EDT/7 CDT
At 8ET/7CT, they will reset the Daily counter. If you login after that time, you'll receive a new daily award (you'll receive 2 rewards if you have the Jackie version.) You actually have to logout and login to get this. You can't just keep your game active.
WARNING: Whenever we set our clocks back in late Fall, the reset time will move to 7pm EST/6pm CST.
"Push the Button": End of a Stream
Once or twice a year, they'll have a special "push the button" stream where the content they introduce during a stream/premiere will go live within 5-10 minutes of the stream ending.
