Yes, I am indeed. The presents are awesome.
Bet you are glad you pre-ordered in time. UWE didn't forget about their fans.
I've seen some players with the black armour and it makes me regret my decision to pre-order it closer to the game's release date.
We have some presents for everyone who pre-ordered the game before today's Steam release (anyone who has played in the NS2 beta). You all receive:
This means that today, we are giving away 45,000 copies of the NS2 Standard Edition for free. If you own the NS2 Special Edition (Black Armor) we will be adding an option to allow you to switch between Deluxe and Special Edition armor.
- A free upgrade to the Deluxe Edition detailed above
- A free copy of NS2 Standard Edition to give to a friend or stroke lovingly
- Continued private beta access right up to launch day in October
I didn't know they planned on doing an open beta in the first place. I thought it was going to be a "pre-order to get access" beta up until the game's release.
They ditched doing a open beta. That sorta sucks, Wanna try it before dumping 25 dollars into it. I liked NS1, just don't know how much they changed the gameplay.
I didn't put in as many hours as you but I agree. I haven't had this much fun in years.
Ohnoes, $25!! Teh horror! I'm buying copies for friends and holding onto my 'gift' copy. I'm several hundred hours in and it hasn't even released yet.
