Just a shame that no one will ever fly one.

Are you kidding? I'm going to take mine out and go PVP with it as soon as I get it.
And if it gets blown up, which I'm sure it will, so what? More fun than having it sit in my hangar uselessly.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

Yes, so it releases in October... I may not be living where I am currently in October.

I'd love to order it right now, but not if there is going to be a shipping mix up 6 months down the line.

Will these preorders be available until then or is there a limited number of copies that will be released that I should focus on purchasing now?

Please help clarify CCP.

Yes it will -- same preorder items as on our store.

Correct preorder descriptions will be set up very shortly Smile


Is collectors edition limited or all people can buy it in any numbers?


Very much limited.




I think Spitfire formatted his last post a little weird, but it sounds like this indeed will be an actual limited edition (*tinfoil* or they could just be saying that to get your monies to fund eve movie development *tinfoil*)

Can CCP confirm that this is indeed a different book than the EVE: Source one? I'm fairly sure it is but confirmation would be nice

I'm also interested if the pod is a one-time item. It doesn't make much sense if it's a one-time thing since you would see it for a fraction of a second but again, confirmation either way would be wonderful

So just ordered it from Amazon. Were we supposed to get any of the pre order stuff right away or will all the gear come as a list of redeem codes in the physical box?

First of all, apologies for the brevity and/or general borkedness of the previous answer -- sitting in the airport at 6am after the Fanfest party and typing on an iPad is an error-prone process. Straight

This collectors edition will be limited in terms of copies produced; i.e. once they're gone, they're gone.

Yes, these are two different books: EVE Source is more focused on the art and lore, while the book in the collectors edition is based on the player-driven history and the community of EVE Online.

It is a permanent modification.

You can change your shipping address in your account section of the EVE Store at any point before the box starts to ship -- which is currently scheduled for October. As mentioned above, the number of copies is limited, so i

The codes (one for EVE and one for DUST) will be sent to your email address. The EVE code is redeemable immediately, while the DUST code will be sent out (and made redeemable) very shortly after May 6, when Uprising is deployed.

If we want the other items but not the pod, is there an option not to use it when the code is used? Are the pod and the non-ship items "consumables" that can be traded?
