Default Thought this was $63 pre-order

I just came to purchase this but now see it's $79.99 when on other sites it says it's $63.99. I take it pre-order means when it is in very early access like now is it not? If not then is there a chance it will go on sale in the near future? Cheers!

It’s been on pre-order for the last couple of months. Now it’s released and is full price. It most likely won’t go on sale for a long while, given past history of new modules.

The pre-order discount only lasts until the module is available. The modules are full price while in Early Access, with the exception of sales - e.g. the Hornet is still in early access but is also on sale for $80 and only dips to $60 in the seasonal sales. Think they said before the discount ended that the F-16C was unlikely to take part in a sale for at least a year.

Absolutly correct. And this was repeatedly statet by Wags and any newsletter at least weekly since the pre-order was available.

You can purchase other modules, gaining ED Miles (replacement for Bonus Ponits) and then use those to make the Viper a bit cheaper... Not less expensiv overall, but maybe a more effective use of money?

By the time I master the Hornet it will be 5 bucks and my phone will be able to get 100 fps running it! O_o Kidding aside I was kinda head in sand on this one and didn't realize it was even on pre-order until I saw footage show up on YouTube. Kicking myself now...

Hi

Sorry you missed out on the pre order price.

We did have it reduced for quite some time.

As mentioned by others subscribe to the newsletter or follow our social media it should give you enough warning in the future.

thanks

See the positive side of it - if you buy now, you'd support ED more

It's only about $16 USD difference. Not too bad.
