Sony Online Entertainment and and Sigil Games Online revealed last week details explaining what you'll get with the pre-order version of the game in addition to information concerning the Collector's Edition and the Regular Edition of their upcoming [i]Vanguard: Saga of Heroes[/i] game.
The pre order version of the game shall include….
1.Early access to the game. You sign up, you log in, and you start playing three days before everyone else who didn't order the pre order copy did. Revel in it!
2. A special account key that, when entered, will give your character a magic scroll that will let your character run for longer periods of time due to increasing his endurance. There's only one per account, though, so use it wisely!
3. An invite to the [i]Vanguard: Saga of Heroes[/i] open beta. The date of the open beta hasn't been worked out, though, but there will be one.
4. A Guild Mail recruitment tool that will allow you to build up your guild so it'll be all ready for when the game open to the public.
5. A plethora of related media such as screenshots, wallpaper, and videos.
