Greetings Exiles,

Just a quick update for you to round out the day. We've been getting tons of feedback and requests for add-ons over the last weeks, and we've been paying attention to what you want to see. Now, we are happy to share a few more of the most-requested add-ons for you!

Effective immediately, the following add-ons are available to all backers at $20 or above:

  • $40 - Collector's Album Box + shipping ($8 US / $10 Canada / $15 EU / $17 Rest of World)
  • $12 - Digital Strategy Guide
  • $15 - Beta Test Access
  • $30 - Extra Digital Copy of Torment: Tides of Numenera (Windows, Mac and Linux)

And you can see the full roster of add-ons below:

As a reminder, to include add-ons with your pledge, you will need to go to the "Manage" button at the top of the Kickstarter page and increase your pledge by the amount of the add-on(s) you wish to add. Once the Kickstarter ends, we will contact you and you will be able to visit our backer web site to specify which add-ons your additional pledge amount is for. There is a limit of 5 add-ons per backer.

Shout-Out

Some of you may have recently seen hints at our collaboration with Jackson Robinson and Kings Wild Project to produce some really cool Wasteland 2 playing cards. We're happy to announce that the Kickstarter for these limited-edition cards has just gone live!

These cards are high-quality and fully illustrated with your favorite characters from Wasteland 2, complete with slick box designs to top it all off. We're extremely pleased with how these have turned out and we know you will be itching to break them out around the tavern table. These cards won't be available forever so check them out while you can!

That's all for now everyone, and once again, thanks for your support!

      Regarding add ons:

      This is a copy/paste from what I already asked in the update 17 (add-ons) but didn't get an answer and as we are running out of time I ask here again. Maybe its worth changing my pledge:

      Quick question:
      I pledged $55 to get a copy of "Torment: Tides of Numenera" as well.
      If I'd pledged $20 and now added another 30 I'd get the same for $5 less?
      or
      if originally pledged $25 (because the 20 ones are all gone) then I'd ended up with the same amount?
      I have to admit that unless I don't understand it correctly I don't see the added value, at least in this particular combination.
      Maybe I could swop my 48h early extra copy of witcher1/2/wasteland2 for something else? (I have all those already, wasteland2 even 3x)
      ;-)

      I'm with Shmerl. The add-in I want that isn't available yet is the Digital Songbook. Or even a combo of the songbook and the soundtrack (either version).

      @Marcin
      You need to pay additional 30$ fot TToN. So u are paying 50$ and getting 2 games.

    7. Thad Mixson on

      Does the collectors's album box come with another copy of the game?:If not, I'm unclear on why just that box is $40 + shipping

      Marcin on

      Could I get a clarification please? I backed the project with 20$. In order to get Torment Tides of Numenera do i need to pay additional 30 $ or just 10 $?

      @inXile
      You say that the shipping charges are per-box, but the double box tier shows a shipping charge of $8 for the two boxes. So why would it be an extra $8 to add the album box to the premiere tier?

    10. Abhishek on

      Will it be possible to pledge for these addons after the Kickstarter campaign has ended? Perhaps on your site when you set up a Ranger Center equivalent for this game? Or can it only be done while the Kickstarter is active?

      Happy to help if it brings the old Black Isle team back together!

      I`m a little bit confused, the
      "Behind The Scenes - Premier Collector's Edition Tier + Addon Collector's Album Box" costs 225$
      and the
      "Double Box Collector - Behind The Scenes Tier" costs 230$
      both have same content.

    13. Jesse Dylan Watson on

      @Asa Thanks for your reply about the novellas!! The $50 tier is actually a great deal for all the stuff I want.

    14. Jonathan Cadle on

      I was originally an early backer ($20), but moved up to $55 because I wanted to check out Torment as well; if only I'd been more patient, I could have safed 5 bucks :P

    15. inXile entertainment 3-time creator on

      @Kris - Yes, shipping is per-box. Our shipping costs shown on the campaign page are set for the weight and size of each box type, and do not cover additional boxes.

    16. Asa on

      Mark, it says on the top of the main page that upgrading your pledge will not invalidate you for any time sensitive offers you may have been eligible for. They have a list of everyone who pledged in the first X days of the campaign.

      @inXile
      Thanks Kris for bringing it up. I am too interested if I would have to pay the additional shipping fees for adding the Collectors Album Box despite the fact that I already pledged a physical tier.

      Archangel on

      Ok, I upped my pledge to 50$ to get that one add on that interests me :)
      Tnx to Inxile for adding it :)

    19. Nobody on

      @inXile
      Do we have to pay the additional shipping fees if we buy an addon of the Collectors Album Box, despite the fact that we have already ordered an physical tier and have paid our shipping fees for europe? So in other words: do we have to pay two times the shipping fees if we order a physical tier and an physical addon of the Collectors Album box?

      @Archangel: Changing your pledge amount does not change your selected reward as long as the pledge reaches the reward minimum. Just change the amount in the textbox on the "Manage Your Pledge" page, and then check that the same reward is still selected below.

      Question: I want to upgrade my pledge by $45 for the Torment download and the Beta access. But as I recall, because I pledged my original $20 by a certain date, I was going to get Wasteland 2 for free. I'm worried if I change my pledge, Kickstarter won't be able to keep track of my original pledge date. Can you guarantee that if I up my pledge I'll still get Wasteland 2 when the Kickstarter ends?

      Thanks,

      Mark

      P.S. Could you possibly address this question in an update or e-mail? I don't know how I'm going to find the answer in the 8,000 comments that are here so far :(

      Archangel on

      I got a question about these add-ons. I am currently a 20$ backer but I would like to get an addon. It says I need to Manage my pledge and choose the amount equal to 20$+cost of add-on.
      But that will bring me equal to another tier of pledge. So how will you know I am actually 20$ + add-on and not just that new tier?
      I want this cleared before I change my pledge amount.

    23. Henrik Persson on

      Will there be an add-on with the 2004 edition of bards tale?

    24. Gonchi on

      Since you've added the Album Box as an Add-On, this seems like a good time to ask if there have been any developments in confirming the physical DVDs will be DRM-Free?

    25. Stefan Fransson on

      Totally agree with Saxon re album box

      Why no map add on? What does it cost to offer a digital map add-on? Would love physical but at this point I will settle for a digital one.

      Saxon1974 on

      48$ for the album box? Wow must be expensive to make. I want it but not for an additional 40/48$. I wish those who pledged at the 100$ collector tier could choose the album style instead of the big CE box that I don't want.

    28. Asa on

      At the $50 you get all the novellas!

    29. Jesse Dylan Watson on

      I'm a bit confused! There are the Bard's Tale 1-3 novellas, and the Bard's Tale IV novellas? I'm backing at the $50 level, so which of the novellas am I getting? I'm actually super psyched to read about what happened in 1-3 to catch me up for 4! But maybe I am not getting those already.

      PeterC on

      If I'm already on a physical tier (premiere) in which I'm already paying shipping, do I need to add an extra $8 again for shipping the album box? (The double box tier only charges a single $8 shipping fee, so I'd guess not?)

      Shmerl on

      I hope songbook add-on will be available later too :)

    32. Sir Chaox on

      Nice!...

      But I already have all those things. :(
      Except for the album box... Not really sure what that's for though. :P
      If I got the album box add-on, would that include an extra copy of the game?

    33. Otaku Hanzo on

      Well, I see one add-on I definitely would not mind grabbing. Still, I would love to see a physical copy of the deluxe soundtrack. ;)
