Ok, so as a post-kickstarter backer who backed on the website a year ago, at the "digital download" level for $35, where do I fall? "Hero" edition? Or am I going to be limited to downloading from the portal, not steam?

As stated above:
Digital Pack: Soundtrack, Collector Book, Behind the Scenes - $35.00 - Hero Edition

Not sure that "pack" and "download" are the same thing, which is why I asked. All I'm listed as getting in the backer portal is "digital download of the game", not the other stuff.

Hmmmm.... Not sure then if the portal says you're only getting the game. Was that after the prices initially went up then?

I wish I could go back and see the backing levels (post-kickstarter) but it appears I can only look at my own. Not sure if they're archived somewhere?

This is really nice to know, but here's a basic question for you:

If you're a KS backer, like me, and a Steam user, does it still work like this?

 

1) You put them Steam keys out on Monday or Tuesday next week on your backer portal, with the right Steam tier for it - Royal or whatever applies.

2) I copy it into Add game over at Steam, and then I will get the option to preload later.

3) At the same time, you give us backers, a few digital booklets on your backer site, with one exception: the strategy guide.

Thanks! Just want to confirm I'll get a steam code, piggy, etc. Thanks!

Do add-ons count in this equation? For example, what if you backed the Digital Fun Pack and picked the strategy guide as an add-on? That combination would include everything included in the Royal Edition. Would that still be mapped to the Champions Edition or would it be mapped "correctly" to the Royal Edition?

 

It does not take add-ons into account. There is no easy way for us to map those keys. If you have add-ons you will have to download them from the Backer Portal.

 

Coolness. I got the "just the game" tier and the expansion add-on, so I'm assuming I'll get my Steam key for the game on Monday or Tuesday and then another Steam key for the expansion whenever it comes out? Or will the expansion be a backer-portal only thing?

This must have been a pain in the ass for you guys to figure out a week from release.

Wait, so Kickstarter backers get something extra not just the pre-order stuff ? Damn, I missed the kickstarter because I literally didn't hear about it until Torment was announced.

Shame. Will there be a way for us to get the kickstarter only bonus items ?

What is "Gaun's Pledge"?

Would it be a spoiler to tell us what its stats are?

Good luck at that. I've been trying to wrangle information about the pre-order items and the Kickstarter items for months, and all I keep getting is different versions of "The Kickstarter item is not the same as the pre-order items. We haven't revealed the Kickstarter item as of yet."

They are quite good at playing their cards close to the chest. :p

I will post those mappings when I get back into the office this morning.

 

I'm curious about this aswell.

 

I popped in for a "Digital Download of Pillars of Eternity" at $35, december of 2013. What tier is that? "Just the Game" or "Digital Pack"? You post "Just the Game" at $20 and "Digital Pack" at $35. I would assume mine is the "Digital Pack"? Is it?

In other words same question as the user you replied to, with the same "What does this include?" as him. "Digital Downloadable Copy of Projection Eternity, DRM free for Windows, Mac or Linux.".

 

What are those mappings? :)

 

EDIT: I've come to realise, I think, that the $20-$35 disparity is from kickstarter->"slacker backing" on the website.

I guess I'll reword the question into the exact same thing as the other user: Will I receive a steam key or no?

The backer portal 'slacker-backer' $35 option was a 'just the game' version (same as $29 eariler paypal slacker-backer and $25 KS backer)- with it we get the 'Hero Edition' on steam/gog (ncluding the pre-order bonuses (not the KS bonuses)  - code to be claimed soon (waiting on announcement probably Monday/Tuesday-ish)

I'll take your word for it, particularly that it will include a GoG key!

I'd like to just get a simple confirmation, though I guess I will find out soon enough anyway :)

Yeah, I mostly just want confirmation that I'll be getting a Steam key so I know whether or not buying an edition upgrade makes sense or not.

If you backed the game you will be able to choose steam or gog. My understanding is that by Monday, Tuesday at the latest they will explain everything...maybe even giving us our keys for the game.

i'm a kickstarter backer for the hero edition, but my question is that i opted in for the extra $20 for the expansion. how will this factor in? will we have a special edition that includes the expansion? or will it just be claim your hero edition and then claim your expansion once it comes out? if the latter, or maybe be able to claim the exp key on the 26th as well and then not have to worry about entering the key later down the road? (i'm getting a steam copy if that matters)

The $140 retail collectors edition was supposed to include 2 digital copies of the game right?  Will these both be royal edition sku?

 

Cheers

^I believe they said that the additional digital downloads are 'game only' (so equating to Hero edition)
