I pre purchased the new xpac, but the launcher is still not downloading anything at 16:30 Europe, even though I bought it a week ago aprox.

We aren't there yet!

Also the normal update day patches for GW2 is on Tuesdays which happens to be when SoTO will be released.

You can even see date on their own site: https://www.guildwars2.com/en-gb/secrets-of-the-obscure/

Adding to what everyone else has said: the expansion releases at the same time for everyone. It will probably be about 9-10am Pacific Time (because Anet is based in Seattle) which is around 5-6pm UK time (so 16:00 - 17:00 UTC).

(Also for any newer players reading this: there is no server downtime for updates, even expansions. If you're online when it goes live you'll get a notification that there's an update available, but that's all.)

@SoulGuardian.6203

People that are playing GW2 will get an in game system message (text in yellow) in chat that will tell player that there is now a countdown until server will close for that build (the build that is active on GW2 client) and you need to log out and update your client with the new build through Launcher. It is possible to log out (and log in again) for getting this update from that moment, so you don't need to wait until countdown will end and force you to log out and update.

For players that isn't online during that moment, they will see Launcher downloading this new build and then be presented with the new expansions content after character selection.

Don't know if you will be teleported directly to the new zone or you have to read a letter (in game mail) where you will get direction to go there.

Exactly. Just want to add: The last updates have always been pretty much exactly at 18:00 CEST (16:00 UTC). However, there is no guarantee of this. It has also happened (a long time ago) that there were apparently problems at the last minute and the update was delayed for several hours.

Accidents happens, but in that case Arena Net will probably publish something on Twitter (X) and other places that SoTO have some issues that need to fixed before they role out the new build.

Almost certainly the second one. None of the previous expansions or Living World releases have just suddenly moved your character to a new map. They all start with someone contacting you about new events and then the first story step/s are about how you get there.
