Bet you are glad you pre-ordered in time. UWE didn't forget about their fans.
Yes, I am indeed. The presents are awesome.
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:
- 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
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.

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 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.

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.
I didn't put in as many hours as you but I agree. I haven't had this much fun in years.
