Hi everyone. I’m happy to say that your wait is nearly at an end: Agarest: Generations of War will be released on Steam in just a few hours. Unless, of course, it’s already past 6pm GMT when you read this, in which case the game is already out - surprise! Our thanks have to go out again to everyone who has supported our cause by already ordering the game and in fact we managed to sneak in to the very top spot on Steam’s Top Sellers!
In the last couple of days I’ve been very busy organising the marketing materials to send out ahead of Agarest’s release. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I’ve had lots of Press interest, more than I usually get. It’s nice to be popular :) Hopefully the reviewers will love the game and appreciate all the hard work we’ve put into this conversion. No doubt you’ll be seeing their comments over the next few days so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
Even if you’re still on the fence and waiting for those reviews to come in, I can tell you that Agarest will continue to be made available with a 20% discount for the next week. But you only have until the end of the pre-order period to make sure you also receive the selection of extra paid DLC absolutely free. So why not go and pre-order the game here?
Speaking of DLC, there’s been a slight change of plans. Rather than offering the free DLC for download separately over the coming weeks, it will now be bundled into the game from the outset. That means that when you buy the game, all of the following items of DLC will be included:
- Basic Pack - Contains 1 each of Resurrect, Capture, and Resist Direction, 2 each of Heal and Refresh, and 5 Vessels of Life.
- Offense-Defense Pack- Contains 1 Adaka, 1 Shield Sword, 1 Bird Eye, 1 Magic Frame, 1 Critical Hit, and 2 Seeds of Happiness.
- Additional-Points Pack 1 - Contains 10,000G, 100PP, 250TP, and 500EP.
- Recovery-Skill Pack - Contains 2 Light Heals, 2 Harvest Heals, and 2 Cure Alls, as well as 1 Prayer, 1 Gospel, and 1 Counter.
- Flower Pack - Contains 1 Lucky Charm, 1 HP Up, 1 Resist Ailments, 1 Restore HP 15%, and 1 Restore AP++, as well as 2 Moonlight Flowers, and 3 Tree Spirit Souls.
- General-Purpose Pack - Contains 1 Magic Blade, 1 Partisan, 1 Battle Frame, 1 Bracelet of Feicui, and 1 Item Drop Rate Up, as well as 2 Shiny Fangs, and 2 Advanced Heals.
- Add-on Dungeon 1 - An add-on dungeon for generation 1. An uncharted adventure awaits you on the Holy Island of Erin!
- Add-on Dungeon 2 - An add-on dungeon for generation 2. A new frontier waits to be explored along the Trum Coast!
- Add-on Dungeon 3 - An add-on dungeon for generation 3. It's time to reunite with old friends at Magna Val!
- Add-on Dungeon 4 - An add-on dungeon for generation 4. Embark on an exciting journey to the mysterious Tresor Island!
- Add-on Dungeon 5 - An add-on dungeon for generation 5. Embark on one last adventure into the Deep Forest Naruvia!
Remember, if you’re a hardy adventurer and prefer not use any particular items of DLC, the PC version offers the option to disable DLC when starting a new game. If (like me) you do like a helping hand from time to time, more DLC will be made available in the weeks following release so be sure to keep your eyes on the store for updates.
Moving on to Devil Survivor 2 and I don’t really have much to add to last week’s post. Unusually, this actually makes me quite happy as we’re at a point where no news is good news :) In case you’ve missed the last couple of blogs I’ll just remind you by saying that our stock will be dispatched to us on 11th October and we’ll start sending your copies out to you from the 15th October.
And before I go, I can confirm that we’ll be running a Ghostlight Autumn Sale with solid discounts on selected items, so be sure to check back to the store in the next few days for some bargains.
I’ll be back next week, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.
