Nice! That seems like a big step. I'm not a gaming guru, but I think FE will do well in the market. I've been heartened to see FE beta so well received, and hope for it's success as a profitable venture. I think the Elemental series has earned its right to profitablility, FE making it more deservingly so. 

I might consider an upgrade to retail box. But only, and this might sound odd, if I have option to pay for the added cost (and perhaps a few dollars more). It's unclear from your posting if there will be a charge for the upgrade. Depending on how WOM FE goes, I'd been considering since late 2010 to purchase a "dummy" copy of FE anyway. Just cuz I think you may have earned the revenue. It might instead, be a better option for me to buy an upgrade to retail box if that puts a little extra money in your coffers. And the USPS could use the added revenue from shipping.

Mmmm...ham.

 

Anyway, is there a way to pre-prder the game and gift it to someone?

 

I bought E:WOM in 2010 so I'll be getting E:FE for free and it doesn't have an option anywhere to pre-order E:FE.

 I am considering buying it for my brother as the game looks pretty cool and he liked MoM back in the day. Plus I'd like to help out Stardock  at the same time. Heck, I'd like to buy a boxed edition for myself if it's available too.

 

Gamersgate has that kind of gifting option and I quite like it.

There would be a nominal cost for shipping and such.

You can gift items in our store.  Digitally you just need their email address.

Hello,

I bought a physical copy of the Collector's Edition of War of Magic when it first came out back in 2010.  How will I be able to receive my free copy of Fallen Enchantress?

Thanks in advance.

Frogboy, I think he is concerned because when we go to the link to purchase another copy it says this below, and as such it wont let us buy another copy for a friend.

Thank you for purchasing Elemental: War of Magic!

You're eligible to recieve Fallen Enchantress for FREE! We'll send you an email informing you of when you have access to the BETA. The BETA will also be automatically added to your downloads page when it's available to you.

Yeah, that seems to be the problem. There doesn't seem to be an option to pre order the game because I'll get it for free.

 

If I log out then I have an option to upgrade or purchase Fallen Enchantress. When I log back in, that option disappears.

If I pre-order the game, will I get immediate access to the beta?

What are the advantages of pre-ordering a digital download?

Please Stardock, take my money - just placed my pre-order. I'm not worried about getting into the beta - just the final product will be fine. Thanks.

Not immediate access as the beta is going out in phases, and early customers of WOM are the first in.  Access will be granted in the coming weeks.

I want to get a copy for a girl gamer I know. She has so many Twitter and facebook friends, it would really help sell the game if she liked it. I will of course wait till the game is really good before I give it to her.

This is probably a dumb question but for those of us getting FE for free do we get a hard copy for free or just the digital version? If I need to kick in a few bucks to have a hard copy mailed to me just say so. I was under the impression there wasn't going to be a boxed version of FE and it was digital only. Given the choice I'll always take it backed up on disk.

There's not going to be a collectors edition for FE, just a standard boxed version.

There will be a boxed and digital version available.  I don't have exact details, but there would be a nominal fee to upgrade to the boxed version.

OK, the ability to pre-order even though you will get FE for free will be available probably this week or so.

Check out your status at  http://elementalgame.com/fallen-enchantress/purchase. I was an early buyer not a pre-orderer of WoM and I now have beta access to Fallen Enchantress. Can't wait to try it!

I was an early buyer (i think i even pre-ordered??) of WoM, yet it claims no such thing on that page. Just gives me the normal "pre-order now for 39.99 (or what the price was) and get in beta 2!".

 

Then again, the whole Gamestop buying Impulse thing messed up my accounts a bit it seems.
I can download Elemental and my copies of Sins + expansions & Galciv2 + expansions in the Gamestop Impulse client, but if i log in to the Stardock Store website, an expansion (Sins Diplomacy) is missing and Elemental is nowhere to be found either! Yet they appear in Impulse..

Furthermore, i still can not login to the overlay thing inside Elemental (the thing similar to the steam overlay), it keeps telling me i have no registered copy of Elemental. So obviously there was some shenannigans when Gamestop bought Impulse, and not all the game registrations properly transfered?

Any ideas, stardock devs?

 

My stardock store account is tied to the email baleurion@hotmail.com and my Impulse account as well (and my username Baleur), if that helps a quick trackdown.

Hey Frogboy Nice to see you're still around chating.

First of all I want to say I'm glad this is moving forward. 
Still a bit scholded from my previous experience with you guys and not quite finishing E:WoM I think that I have by now forgiven you!
I'm glad you are listening to the fans and in active discussion with them and it seems that this time the project will go from start to finish!

I think I'll pre-order my copy (us poor sobs who ordered it to late don't get it for free ).
Just please don't screw us over again!

Although even if you do I am sure that you will inspire future game developers with your authentic and unique gameplay ideas and concepts. 
Regardless of the previous games finish it was still a very brave and interesting step to take.


The best of luck with this project. 

Boris

Sorry.  Don't mean to be champing at the bit; but I was wondering if there is currently any rough forecast, as to when the Pre-Orders may start being filled.  I am  NOT  trying to make anyone commit to a firm schedule.  I am just trying to get a rough idea.  Thanks!
