Default Lock On Platinum

Lock On Platinum

Over the past several months, several of you have asked why we cannot do a box product of Lock On and Flaming Cliffs 2 together in a single package. The speed bump has been that we do not own the intellectual property (IP) rights to Lock On; Ubisoft does. After several months of negotiations though, we have secured the license rights to release such a retail product in the U.S. We did not want to bring this up earlier in case the plan fell through.

This project has also been delayed because we want to integrate the Flaming Cliffs 2 patch into the DVD version of FC2 that will be included in the box package. This is particularly important because we want to resolve installer issues. As most of you have read, this patch is in final testing.

Once the patched FC2 code is complete, we can send it and the other publishing assets to our distributor for duplication and retail distribution. The time from sending final assets to LOP being on store shelves is about two months (typical packaging creation, duplication, and distribution time frame). As such, LOP should be available in early July of 2010. We'll do a press release on the ship date that will include a list of retailers and the purchase price.

Thanks,
Matt

These are great news, Wags.

Will there be different Languages like in DCS:BS (English, Russian, German, French,..) or just English and Russian like in Flaming Cliffs 2?

Nice trailer.

I think this is good news. I had to dig around in my basement once I noticed FC2 had come out for my ol' LOMAC disk, so packaging this all up is a really good idea. I'm glad this was sorted out with Ubisoft.

I love playing FC2, so thanks for that, and I hope for your continued success. I've got my credit card out ready for the pre-order of the DCS-A10 too... ;-)

Great to hear! I will be among the first to get a copy of the hard disk media. Congrats on reaching an agreement with UBISOFT.

Nate - the package will only be available in North America due to Ubisoft only licensing Lock On in North America to TFC.

For the rest of the world, you will have to have a copy of Lock On, and then buy Flaming Cliffs 2, as either as a download or as a boxed retail product.
