Sundered Limited Run Edition Announced Today!

Available for order January 4th, 2019!
Available for order January 4th, 2019!

Hey folks!

Did you catch the announcement from our friends at Limited Run today? A limited physical PS4 release has been confirmed! 

The Sundered: Deluxe Edition for PS4 from Limited Run will available for order on January 4th on the Limited Run website

For the uninitiated, the fine folks at Limited Run have been publishing physical editions of choice PS4, PS Vita, and Nintendo Switch titles since 2015 - including our own Jotun: Valhalla Edition. They're also putting together the Kickstarter-Exclusive Sundered Physical Collector's Box (more on this below). In short, we're big fans.

As a reminder, Limited Run editions truly are limited. As they put it:

"Once a game sells out, it will never be available from us again! We believe that as collectors and consumers you should be able to trust when we say our games are limited. They are!"

So if you're interested in this edition, set your alarm to head over to https://limitedrungames.com/ on January 4th, 2019, because we know from experience that these editions sell out in a flash!

What's the difference between this edition and the Sundered Kickstarter Physical Edition?

Great question! I've been awaiting today's LRG announcement to tell you more about the Kickstarter-Exclusive Sundered Physical Collector's Box.

So for the Limited Run edition announced today, what you see is what you get: Sundered: Eldritch Edition, on PS4 blu-ray disc, in a branded PS4 case sporting the official Sundered: Eldritch Edition Key Art.

Meanwhile, the Kickstarter-Exclusive Sundered Physical Collector's Box takes that PS4 disc and case, switches in exclusive PS4 case cover art, and sticks it in a larger box (also sporting the exclusive *gold foil-decorated* box art) along with:

  • The PC physical version: the Physical Collector's Box will include physical versions for both the PS4 and PC;
  • Soundtrack on CD: A physical version of Sundered's haunting soundtrack;
  • Physical Art Book: A soft-cover, physical version of the Art Book full of our gorgeous hand-drawn art! 
  • Sundered Keychain
  • Sundered collectible trading cards

ICYMI, the Collector's Box shipping has been delayed until February.

ICYMI, our previous update confirmed that production delays have forced us to push the shipping date to February 11th. See that update for details (and let us know if you have any questions!).

To be clear, in case you're wondering, the January 4th order date for the Limited Run edition is not a shipping date - it's not going out in the mail before the Kickstarter edition. More to the point, the PS4 cases for both editions are being manufactured at the same time - they'll be delivered at the same time to Limited Run, where they'll slip the ones with the special Kickstarter-exclusive art into the larger box before shipping both editions out.

That's all I got for now, folks! Keep your eye on thunderlotusgames.com where I'll be posting our team's list of Games of the Year! 

Aside from that, this should be the last update before Xmas, so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all an awesome holiday season! I hope you all can get at least a little time to spend with what or whomever you adore.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm itching to finish my run through one of my 2018 favorites, Spider-Man on PS4.

And if you've got your own Games of the Year you'd like to proclaim your love for, please let us know in the comments!

Cheers, y'all!

      @All - Quick news: we will officially be including PC, Mac, and Linux versions on disc in the Collectors' Edition! We'll include this news in our upcoming update - just wanted to put this in the thread while we wait. Thanks to @Ignaz Forster for pointing us in the right direction to make this happen!

    2. Thunder Lotus Games Creator on

      @Ignaz - Just a little context here. To be clear, the aim has always been to stuff as much value into the box as possible. Our previous assertion that the box would include Mac and Linux versions was therefore a no-brainer when we launched the campaign. But three weeks later, when we got the confirmation that PS4 would also be part of the package, everything was re-evaluated and re-costed, with some planned elements being left by the wayside (which wasn't a problem, since it was thought that none of the box content had yet been confirmed). The main communication challenge has been (and remains) the original *PC-only!* assertion that still shows on the reward list to this day, but we never thought to check the comments to see if anything contradictory had been promised. Apologies for that!

      Now, back to your point: the programming team's opinion is that there isn't a 1-to-1 correspondence in the data folder between OS's, making the simple sharing of the folder between versions a logistical challenge, if not an impossibility. This, along with the possibility of offering 2 out of 3 versions in the box, were examined as possibilities, and discarded.

      If you do have suggestions as to how the sharing of the data folder between versions can be accomplished while accounting for the differences, but without needing significant additional programming effort, we will certainly explore them as potential solutions. Feel free to send them to rodrigue@thunderlotusgames.com, and I'll forward them to the programming team.

      Thanks for the continuing feedback!

      Oh dear. Is there something which could be done to change this, or have the discs already been produced? If the "logistics" are about the available disc space (i.e. if the disc couldn't hold archives of all three version at once) you ARE aware that the _Data directory can be shared between all versions, aren't you? At least I hope you didn't want to produce one disc for each operating system :-)

      Thanks a lot for all the replies by the way.

      @Ignaz, yes - again, sorry to disappoint. We will be unable to honor that statement - the logistics for this only became clear recently, and the physical PC disc included in the Collector's Box will not contain the Linux or Mac versions.

      Oh - are you sure about this? In https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thunderlotus/sundered-a-horrifying-fight-for-survival-and-sanit/comments… it was confirmed that the physical version would contain all platforms...

    6. Thunder Lotus Games Creator on

      Sorry, @Ignaz - We're still on holiday vacation up here, so we haven't been fully on top of all communications in the interim. For now though, I can confirm that PC physical was meant as "PC-only", and was not meant to implicitly include Mac and Linux. Sorry to disappoint!

      *sniff* Could you also answer my question, pretty please? ;-)

      @Marlon - Yes, Limited Run will be handling the actual shipping of the boxes. Happy New Year to you as well! :D

      Hi,
      Just a quick question.
      Is Limited Run Games shipping the Kickstarter-Exclusive Sundered Physical Collector's Box to us?
      Thank you!
      Happy New Year to all at Thunderlotusgames!!!

      Excellent news!

      Just for confirmation regarding your sentence "the Physical Collector's Box will include physical versions for both the PS4 and PC". PC means Linux, Mac and Windows here, correct?

      Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, enjoy the holiday!
