Default SiN Episodes: Emergence to Pre-Load Soon

The latest Steam update has word that SiN Episodes: Emergence is getting close to the pre-load phase, where users can begin downloading data in preparation for the eventual unlock (ie. when the game becomes playable):
<blockquote>
The months of April and May are looking like they will be two of the busiest months for Steam since the launch of Half-Life 2. First, we'll be starting the preload and preparation for launch of SiN Episode 1: Emergence, developed by Ritual Entertainment. This is the first in a series of installments set in the SiN universe that will be delivered via Steam.
</blockquote>
Restart your Steam client to see the update.

If this is an April fool's joke I will hunt everyone responsible and gouge out their eyes with a rusty spoon! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If not, dance dance baby.

If it proves to be an April fool's joke from Ritual then it's nothing more then a demonstration of bad taste from their part . . .

I hope it isn't, the last April 1 joke Steam played was really stupid and not funny at all.

You can dance if you want to. I can't dance worth a damn.

Besides, look at the date on the update:

Yep, it's not their April fools news.

You'll be able to tell when it's the april fool's news update as it'll be really silly like it was last time.

This could become problematic for VALVe (and subsequent Ritual) . . .

Just found out Valve's April Fool's joke. You had to look for it to find it. On the Content Server's Page: http://www.steampowered.com/status/content_servers.html
They had Xen listed as one of the countries with content servers located in it.
