Any confirmation on the "Free pre order" stuff?

LegionCM

Me and many others that received the "We're honoring your free pre order" email for "buying" the game in 2015 a couple months ago.

Is there any way to confirm this other than that email? Are we supposed to receive game codes to add the game to Steam or is it just through my amazon account?

Anyone have info on this?

Let me double check with Customer Support. I will respond to this thread when I have a verified answer.

Can someone PLEASE clear this up for us that have the free pre-order?

LegionCM

A lot of us have pre-ordered the game while it was free and will still be getting it free. However what hasn't been officially detailed yet, is what version/edition pre-order we will be getting.

Some of us might want to pay for the deluxe version if all we are getting is the standard version, right?Well someone has already made a reddit post asking how one could upgrade from the free pre-order to deluxe, and we got a reply from u/LegionCM saying the following:

>The free copy of the game you'll receive IS the Deluxe Edition.

That's great. Except when I contacted amazon support via live chat, I was told that the free pre-order version is actually only the standard edition, and that we needed to cancel it to buy the deluxe edition if we wanted it.

Can someone please clear this confusion up for good and verify which of this conflicting information is valid? It's been bothering me for a while now, not knowing whether or not I need to buy the deluxe edition if I want it.

Let me look into this with Customer Service and get back to this thread. I want to make sure I provide the correct information.

You will receive a Steam key for the Deluxe Edition if you were a part of the cohort who pre-ordered the game back in the day and have received an e-mail confirming it.

I'll work to make sure Customer Service has the same and correct information for players. It is confirmed that you will receive the the Deluxe Edition.
