Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Why is this important? Because they also have a code for 20% off ANY digital PC game: JBTBG5-7GVTE8-W2YXRV
I just got my Heavensward CE upgrade for $48.
A couple notes about GMG because people tend to love or hate them: I've never had any problems with them but I know people who have. Typically these are payment related issues since they're not US based. Some banks apparently don't let the charge go through. I've bought probably 10+ games from them, usually preorders (including FFXIV: ARR) and have received all of them for 20-25% off. There were no issues getting my early access codes either.
The code above is ONLY good until the 20th, but they run codes like this OFTEN. I would expect to see 2-3 more of these before the expansion actually hits so if you don't get it this time don't panic. If you're going for digital like I am this is a fantastic deal. It also works on the normal version, too, but I'm not really sure why you'd get that.
Meaning you buy the game you get to play everything? no okay here, now buy this quest pack, now buy this quest pack, oh and that one too? you get everything(outside expansions of course)
basically like guild wars?
What you DO get if you buy the game and don't sub: Every piece of content in the game currently. This includes a huuuge amount of Tamriel and a huuuuge amount of quests. IMO, worth the price of admission if you're not paying a sub. You also get 1.6 changes like stealing etc. They've said they also want to make sure everyone gets new game systems etc without having to pay extra.
What you DON'T get: New content. I think they're avoiding "expansion packs" like you'd expect from most games. Instead they do want to go with content packs. This shouldn't be just a quest line here or there but rather whole new zones. People who sub get the new content as part of the sub and can likely buy them permanently using the crown stipend they get. Pricing, scope, or really details at all haven't been announced. This might cause some to worry but I think it's a wait and see sort of deal. This content will also scale so it's available to all levels.
