Would it be ok to play it a week before release? Would there be any banning or anything that would take place?

Why do you ask, do you have a copy?

Nope. I've seen a few sellers selling it early though. I know with online games it could get you banned, but for a single player game, would it do the same? What if it's for review purposes as well? (Even if SP themselves didn't send a copy to you for reviewable purposes)

 

I was just curious about the whole thing.

its perfectly fine, you cant and wont get banned for playing a game early.

 

but just dont stream it with Twitch. they are cracking down on people streaming games before release and you can get banned from Twitch.

Sweet. I've never bought a game early and honestly I'm afraid to so I might just wait. Either way, you're still supporting the developer and it's not pirating so I'm not totally against it... just afraid to do it. lol.

As long as you are playing a legal, non pirate version of the game, you will not be banned. However, I wouldn't recommend streaming it until closer to launch

I would buy a game whenever I could, and play it when i  got  it. All of this is on the seller of the game. Tomb Raider got the ok to release early.

i use to buy game early not once annything happen   main places sell it early is like mom and pop shops 

 

if you a decent youtuber the company sometimes even send u a copy for free
