Hey boss members :D

Just wondering where people have pre ordered the game from. I'm just about to pre order to get the head start access and i have noticed that Game are selling the pre order for £25 on their site but on the Rift site its £35. Just wondering if this is legit and will give me head start access or maybe i'm just being stupid?

my worry is that if you buy from game you dont get the box untill official launch day and therefore miss out on the headstart...

•Head Start Access: Play the game before it hits store shelves.

...that one line is missing off every boxed version of the game i have found online.


although i did find this glimmer of light on a forum...

I asked Trion directly about the head start event, and they said Amazon should be emailing anyone that pre-orders a physical copy of the game a code to put in that will get you into all the rest of the beta events and the head start. I emailed them a copy of my pre order and they went ahead and flagged my account for the beta anyway, but said we have to wait until amazon emails us the code to be flagged for the head start. Hope amazon doesnt drop the ball on this as I was previously gonna pre order the digital CE but I really want all the extras in the physical box. Heres to hoping anyway.

....so the options are get the Digital version from Trion and know your getting the Headstart or order from Game pay £10 less for the standard edition and take a chance.

Id prefer the boxed CE of the game over the download given they are the same price.

Hi guys
I ordered my copy from Game.uk a week ago and emailed trion to say i never got a pre order key.
They replied within a day and activated my account with a full beta and early access.
They did state that however that Game UK should provide pre order key and whoa and behold mine came today. I think the hard copy is a better path on this one tbh looking at the savings.
Also check this link about pre-orders http://trionworlds.custhelp.com/app/ans ... TWZFa2s%3D
