Soo it is my assumption that all of those features start tomorrow for all platforms, and free to play becomes available tomorrow for PC and July 15th for consoles. Is this correct?

So if people go into a store and buy the retail version... they are paying for literally nothing since they can't get the paid rewards anymore?
Or what?
If that is the case, you better have every retailer pull all the games before it goes F2P on console or it's just disingenuous...

I've got a question that possibly may be in relation to this. I saw a screenshot of the updated loadout system in some thread the other day. (Where you can switch loaouts in-game, instead of having to wait by going into your menus, and changing it that way.) Is whatever patch that, that's going to be in, coming out any time soon in relation to the game going F2P?

Question if I already have the full version of the game and I happen to find a couple box copies.

I then register the keys to my account will I receive an additional 1000 arkforge and another 30 day patron pass for each unused key I apply to my account?

Can I register those keys anytime or does it need to be registered before tomorrow's patch?

I'm pretty sure this was answered somewhere else, but I can't find it now. I can't imagine that retailers are being told to pull physical copies from the shelves, so I'm curious. If I purchase one (or more) from a store in the next few days, will I be able to get 1000 Arkforge and a 30-Day Patron Pass added to my current account? If I remember right, there's a code in the box to input through the Trion website that ties the copy to an account. If all of the above is true, do I wait until my first Patron Pass is finished to add another?

My local Gamestop is selling them for $2.99 and it doesn't take a genius to do the math on that deal for 30 days of boosts and 1000 Arkforge. ;)

EDIT: LOL I see I wasn't the only one thinking the same thing at the same time...

I'm just trying to figure out how it works. I've had the game since April. (Pre-ordered it, participated in the beta too.) Will I just automatically get the patron pass, etc because of my existing account? Or do I have to somehow tie my account with my copy of the game? It's been over a year, the only thing I have left is the disc. (I use a disc shaped cylinder to keep all my games in.) (Couldn't find the box anywhere after searching for it just now.)

One code is linked to one account so, no, I do not think you can get more copies unless it lets you unlink and relink to a new copy without downgrading you from F2P.

nathanpbutler

They do say in one of their announcements about all of this on the main site (not the forum) that if you happen to find a box copy after the launch of F2P, you'll still get those bonuses for being a purchasing player.

However, they also say that doing so requires using the site here to link a profile here to your PC or console game, which suggests to me that you probably can't double up, since I believe it's a 1-to-1 connection of profile to game (or platform).

But trial players who decide to buy a retail copy they happen to run across in the bargain bin? They're good to go.

What are the people that have been here and supported this game (Me since Alpha) getting out of this deal? Some of us have spent quite a bit of cash on DLC's and things, so is there some magical thing we need to do to get credit for doing all this? Do we have to do something to get this Arkforge and patron pass? This will all be pointless to answer if it's after this is released....

Just link your game to your account, it is that simple.

From what I understand the code on the back of the manual is the owner code, so hopefully you entered that code before tossing the manual. You also have to link your game account to your trion account if you havent done that as well. The link number is given in game in the settings somewhere.

You'll still get the rewards, but if you apply them after the launch of F2P, you won't get the neat title.

Kiwi, to verify, the Link Your Account code in the settings (the randomly generated one), is all you need for the Console players? Or, do you have to put in the printed code from the game paperwork from the case?

I bought the digital copy from the PSN store during launch. Where do I find the code to link my account? Or was that what we did in the beginning when we got all the bonuses where we had to keep entering all those codes?

You just need to link your account (inside the game's settings menu), then apply the code found there to your account on the Trion Worlds website. The first time you played, there should have been a popup with instructions so it's possible you've done it already.

"Daredevil" is more old school than the "Old School" title. That is just my opinion of course :)

I'm only a "Badlands Drifter", that is, I drifted away from the game. "Daredevils" are called that because they are reckless enough to stay around. :)

No seriously, I'll check back in for the quick load-out swap and episode missions later. And to get a taste of F2P. But... later........... did I mention June 4th is also Marvel Heroes 2015 ?

I hope they find the time to fix more stuff in the meantime.

I think the players who preordered, and registered on launch should get the exclusive old school title. Not sure how players who joined this year, or the day before F2P are "old school". Thank you for the 30 day paradise patron pass, will use this to level my new character.

It was removed because the game is now free. So there is no longer a reason, for us to sucker friends into buying the game.

70 total. Not counting bonus inventory slots you have from ark codes, pre-ordered game, and such. I am not sure about the patron pass, though.
