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)

 

I sincerely doubt there's any infrastructure in place to support keys for the expansion as of yet. Pretty certain there won't be "expansion included" keys, nor separate keys for just yet. You should expect to have to log into the Backer Portal to grab your expansion key once the expansion is done. There'll be Kickstarter Updates that'll tell you what to do when the time comes.

 



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

 

Cheers

 

Uh, no? the $140 retail collector's edition contains 1 digital key (Steam or GOG), and a physical, DRM-free disc that will ship later. You may be confused with the $165 Digital Only tier?

Seriously read the rest of the thread. I posted on page 2 towards the bottom what the general understanding is based on what we have been told so far.

Hi, Obsidian,

 

I purchased Digital Fun Pack at Kickstarter and Digital Strategy Guide with First Expansion Pack via Paypal Obsidian Pledge system.

 

Will I get Royal Edition? To be honest, I don't want my contents download via Backer Portal, but more inclined to download via Steam.

 

And apparently there is no upgrade option from Champion Edition to Royal Edition.

 

PS: Royal Edition = Digital Fun Pack + Digital Strategy Guide

 

Thanks!

 

If I can only get Champion Edition in this case, please sell us Upgrade from Champion Edition to Royal Edition on both Steam and GoG. I feel myself "unroyal" in this case =/ At least I want to pay $30 to get a Steam upgrade rather than download via Backer Portal.

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? 

 

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

 

We are still waiting :-)

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.

It is tough indeed, but please consider to make it possible!

 

The weird thing was that digital strategy guide as an ultimate digital tier was bound to $80 tier, which include an additional copy of the game.

Digital strategy guide was a $7 addon. But I don't need another copy of the game since there is none of my real life friend playing traditional cRPG.

 

So I chose Digital Fun Pack + Digital Strategy Guide. This equals to $80 minus additional copy of the game and equals to Royal Edition on Steam/GoG now.

 

What I want to say is if I knew that I must purchase $80 pack to acquire Royal Edition on Steam/GoG, I will do it.

 

I know I am not like any other backers who donate hundreds bucks, but myself, as early backer, would really appreciate if Obsidian can make addon purchase consider as part of tiers to SKUs.

Hello,
 
Both me and my brother purchased the Digital Fun Pack at Kickstarter and First Expansion Pack.
 
We would realy like to have all the content in GOG (royal edition) and because of a digital strategy guide (7$) we have to download half of the content via backer portal. (We dont need yet another portal to download the content of a game we backed..)
 
Please consider to try to find a way so the ones who backed the Digital Fun Pack dont suffer.
 
Thank you!

I bought Digital Download Plus + Expansion + Beta. I wonder what that gives me. Really hoping for the Royal Edition here, or some way to upgrade from Champion to Royal.

Same here. I've backed Digital Fun Pack + Strategy Guide + Expansion, because the I didin't need the Strategy Guide + another copy of the game.

Personally I'd also like to see the Retail Package + Expansion (+ Strategy Guide) to Royal Edition. Please? :cat:

I spent $125 total, but because I went with the Digital Fun Pack and got all the other addons à la carte (including EVERYTHING listed under the Royal Edition on Steam and GOG), I still only get a Champion Edition key?  That doesn't seem right.  Even if you take out $25 for the backer beta and $20 for the expansion, that's still $80, and all the $80+ pledge packages get Royal Edition keys.

 

I won't have time to play the game until sometime next week anyway, so should I hold off on applying the key and ask customer service to review my total pledge in the hopes that they'll upgrade it to a Royal Edition key?

Unfortunately I'm another person who backed the project by getting the Digital Fun-Pack with the Strategy Guide- and Expansion-Addon.
 
It's kinda sad that we get the Champion Edition because it could have been so easy if they would have offered a package in their kickstarter campaign that included the strategy guide without the extra copy of the game that most people don't needed. It just doesn't feel right that we have to get our stuff from two different websites when the content of the royal edition is including everything we paid for.
 
I hope they try to find a solution for that. Please offer help trough customer service if it's not possible to code a script that checks if someone has the digital fun-pack with the strategy-guide addon.

@ManiX +1 to that! I'm in the same boat(Digital Fun-Pack with the Strategy Guide- and Expansion-Addon).

Would have been nice to simply get the Royal Edition, instead of having to go thru 2 different places, manually downloading each add-on.

 

If they can offer a better solution(manual upgrade to royal upon request for those w/the addons?) thru customer service, as you say, all the better. But oh well, in any case still really excited; can't wait to play PoE! Thanks for all your hard work Obsidian!

My Digital Download Plus post kickstarter pledge gives me a Hero Edition in the key redemption, does that mean that I will get all the extra content only through the Products Tab once the game is released?

A little confused. As a 1k Backer, do I only get 1 Royal or are the other ones Royal too? I don't want to tell people I'm giving away the wrong items.

The extra copies are only the base game.  You will only get 1 Royal.  The Royal you get is your copy from the physical tier match to your pledge.  So like me you would get 5 Hero Editions and 1 Royal.
