Hurrah! For the day long foretold has dawned. A day of mystery. A day of prophecy. A day on which to rejoice and gambol cheerily through the murky London streets, exclaiming, “GOA updated their website!” And lo, there is an announcement about the regular edition pre-order programme in Europe. And behold, for it does include a list of pre-order campaign partners (ie. shops).
I’m sure you know the URL but here’s the link.
Regular Edition is the same as Standard Edition, for anyone who is getting confused at all the acronyms. So if you pre-order your regular edition, you will get as a bonus:
- a 3 day head start
- a couple of bonus items in game (the portable camp and champion’s sapphire band, as per collector’s edition)
Now not all pre-order campaign partners are equal. Some are premium partners – and those are the ones you want to order from if you ALSO want an Open Beta key.
Currently the only premium partner listed is the EA Store (although they mention Direct2Drive also so it may be that section isn’t finished yet? I’ll keep this post updated if they add more.)
