Community - Preordering for the Booster \"Legacy Of The Xan

Post by Uragon » Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:12 pm

As our dear game director Means announced in the AO community forums this afternoon, preordering for the next booster pack for AO is possible as of now. For those amongst us to preorder, the bonus for doing so will be a brand new in-game Phasefront Hover Chair. The potential prices for doing so are either ?óÔÇÜ?¼/$19.95, ?óÔÇÜ?¼/$14.95 plus 500 service points or ?óÔÇÜ?¼/$9.95 plus 1000 service points. The launch of the booster is scheduled for Thursday, 19th February 2009. So that's only nine days to go!

Exciting, isn't it? As always, we'll keep our eyes and ears open for you all when we find out more!

Preordering it gives you access to the "Hoverchair" :)

Thank you my dear ... and DONE. I will now have something new to add to my Star Fleet. :P

Question though ... I used 1000 service points and the $9.95 option ... which I'm assuming is for the Hover Chair and Xan expansion. However, does this also mean that there's an additional charge per month for the Xan expansion? I wasn't sure I understood it correctly!

There is no increase in monthly payment, buying the Legacy of Xan booster is the only additional cost so to speak.

The first idea of Service Points was for booster packs to be paid fully in these, however I think Funcom understood that most players that had been around since they were released had well over 2000 points even if they had no spent a single cent on paid points for their hoverbikes, etc.
So they made it possible to pay half the booster with paid points(service points) thus rewarding "veterans" so to speak :)

Thanks for the update Quilluck ... that's good news, and now I can't wait for the expansion, as well as the "StarThrone9" ... the guys are going to freak out ... unless they procure their own I guess. :D
