Zavvi - Pre-Purchases

ZezdaZezda Posts: 686Member Uncommon

Sorry mods for making another Pre-Purchase thread but I wanted to make sure this was easy to find as Zavvi is the only retailer selling the CE in the UK.


I spoke with the helpline 5 minutes ago and the agent there advised me that he has been assured that everyone who pre-purchased the game yesterday (including the CE) has had their beta 'package' shipped today via post. I'm not 100% sure if this is being confirmed by email (The volume on the call was terribly low and it was very hard to hear him correctly).


Either way, I double checked and he was adamant that everyone who ordered yesterday will have their codes ahead of time.


Bonus info: They originally had 500 copies of the CE, this sold out in ~20 minutes and they got restocked with an additional 2000 upon request. As far as he was aware there were no further plans to restock the CE so if you are in the UK and on the fence about picking it up it might be an idea to decide sooner rather than later.

    Hey didnt want to make new topic but got few questions.


    Do i get 3 day headstart only if I preorder digital version from Anet. Will it take same time to download digitally because you dont get CD with box either?

    Apparently the pre-purchase code for my CE was being sent from zavvi yesterday via post.


    What bugs me a littel is that the order is displayed as dispatched and I have no open order with zavvi now. I would have thought that the order would be left open until the actual CE box gets shipped. I just hope I didn't pay 160 EUR for a pre-order box only...


    Let's wait and see.

    I got my pre-purchase box today. Looks like a standard PC game box and inside is just the code you put online. Also I am curious about the actual CE and when/how will we know when that gets shipped.

    Obviously you wont get your actual CE box until the game is released sometime in the next 12 months if we are lucky.

    How many people have gotten their code box from Zavvi?

    I got my dispatch email on 11th but I still haven't receieved any box. These things don't normally take this long to arrive.

    I'm referring to the standard edition by the way.


    All hail the Pixel, for it is glorious Orange!

    I received an update email from zavvi which eased my mind. Pre-purchase box still didn't arrive, but I think it should be any day now. (I live outside UK, so had to expect some delay.)
