History

Pre-order packs

The Dying of the Light pre-order packs.[5]

Standing against the heralds of corruption, the Lightpact once carried the hopes of all Verrans on their shoulders. Their flames would ultimately be dashed on the rocks of betrayal and destruction. Corruption, death, and evil now grasp and consume the light that once led the way. With the re-emergence of the Divine Gates, will the beacon of faith be set ablaze once more?[5]

Pre-order packs are available from the Cosmetic store.[6]

We offer cosmetics for players who wish to support the project early. The exclusive nature of the limited availability is something I think collectors value. If you buy cosmetics as an MMO player, I know I enjoyed if the cosmetic is rare and not every girl at the party is wearing the same dress. In addition, these cosmetics are used to populate the world through NPC variants and color/texture changes so their offering aligns with our production schedule. The good thing about these packs is they contain no P2W advantages and there is no box cost, so from a mechanics standpoint you do not need to buy them to excel in the game on launch. And also, there are comparable and subjectively more grand cosmetics achievable in game as well.[7]Steven Sharif

Pre-order pack information

Pre-order pack cosmetic skins cycle monthly and are never available again for purchase. Apart from the cosmetic skins, the packages can also include subscription time, embers (virtual currency for future cosmetics when the game is live), access to alphas and betas, and other perks such as name reservation.[9]

These packs are completely optional and provide no vital components for succeeding in Ashes.[9]Steven Sharif

Pre-order pack addons

Purchasers of pre-order packs have the ability to purchase future individual pre-order pack cosmetics (at the same or lower level as their pack purchase) as add-ons in the month that they are on sale.[2] [9][10]

Pre-order pack upgrades

Cosmetics owned prior to upgrading a pre-order pack are retained.[14]

  • Cosmetics in the new package tiers in the month of the upgrade are gained.[14]
  • Upgrades won't unlock cosmetic items in tiers that were already granted by a previous package.[2]
  • The upgrade price is the difference between the new and old pre-order pack prices.[15][2]
