I only just got my new pc and I cant download the the Client atall didnt have any of the previous ones as i was on PS3 for beta.
Whenever I try and update the client from 2013.08.15.0000.0001 it keeps giving me
"Unable to Complete Version Check.
   
Please help :(
I'm in the same boat as you, James. I have the PC version but did the PS3 beta. I finally got through that pre-order debacle and was able to register the game / download the client. When I run the launcher, it gives me the "Due to ongoing maintenance, this page is currently unavailable. Please try again later."
Might be that we can't get the actually download until servers are up come 2 am Friday night......thats what we get for doing the PS3 beta, I guess :S
