    Could you clarify how we must proceed to order SA ?

    Shall we go to UO store ? any other way ?

    Concerning the timing for ordering : Will it be opened Tuesday United States time ? What about Europe ? Can we order it Tuesday OUR time ?

    Thanks in advance

    EA actually clarify something? Or work to multi time zones rather than USA ones? Don't be daft!

    I have no idea whether this will be available our time or their time. Going on EA's past performance with regard to acknowledging that other people in other time zones play their game, I guess it's going to be on their time. I have not yet discovered a link to anywhere we'll be able to order it. If I'm guessing (and this is a guess) I'd say it'll be linked to from uo.com so you can go and get your code. Don't hold your breath for goodies though; the small print is indicating that not only will non USA customers not receive launch goodies, they're being reserved for 'new' accounts only :(

    Nothing's set in stone, pretty much because EA haven't actually been all that forthcoming with details.
    I think the marketing guys are doing their thing, and the devs are working off memos.

    The two places I can say with some confidence that it should be available are EAstore (the US one, can't say for sure on international ones), and UOGamecodes (if that doesn't class as a "participating online retailer" than I don't know what will).
    For time... At the very earliest, it'll probably be their midnight tonight, when the date rolls over. Although they haven't clarified it, the release would probably be out of the devs hands, so whatever marketing feels like. Should be out by evening tomorrow (Europe time).

    Ea are rarely forthcoming with details, and what details we do get are frequently about as clear as mud :(

    The EA Store appears to accept Paypal among other options, and Chrissay has stated SA will be available from there. As for times..who knows :p

    That's fairly common for game pricing conversions.
    Although, if that is the case, then it may be possible to buy it for the converted $ value from UOgamecodes. Prices on there are listed in $, so I'm assuming it doesn't discriminate by country.

    That remains to be clarified.
    The "small print" suggests no, which isn't encouraging. Although, again, if UOGC qualifies as a "participating online retailer", and it doesn't discriminate by country, then that might work.

    So, ultimately, they finally give us a reasonable way to buy it online, yet the indications are that the only way not to get screwed over is to go for the old way.

    All most 8am UK time still no link to buy SA :thumbdown:
     
  9. I am sure they will go by US time. So you are 5 hours ahead of them in the UK. So if they get in at 8am est that will be 1pm gmt. I am not looking to see the link till after that for the European players.

    4pm British Summer Time now, and I still can't find UO:SA in the EA Store...

    but it seems the servers all went down to enable the new content about half an hour ago, so maybe not long now.

    After 3 years away from uo i reactived my game 4 days ago, just see how my old stomping ground was getting along, and reading about SA ( that i only found out about yesterday).

    Must say the most exciting thing about SA to me is Battle Chicken breeding.

    Not sure its worth $29 for that ?? i'll give meself a few months to check out all the other stuff first that ive miss. :) Before i upgrade.
