AEG is committed to Kickstarter. Kickstarter has become one of our key channels to build our community and to bring great new games to our players. Each of our Kickstarter Campaigns is crafted to deliver a great value and a great gaming experience, and an interesting and engaging experience for our Backers.
The Battle Against the Blight continues. Fulfillment for this campaign is scheduled for September of 2020.
Update 18 March 2020:
Update 6 March 2020:
Our factory has informed us that they’re ready to begin shipping the Cliffs of Coldharbor Rewards (including Advanced Guild Packs and the Guildmaster Upgrade packs). We are now starting the fulfillment process. We will have new etas for delivery of your Rewards soon!
We are going to close the Late Pledges for Cliffs of Coldharbor on Sunday March 8th. If you have been waiting to make an order, please do so immediately.
Late Pledges are closed for New Horizons. Fulfillment for this campaign is scheduled for June 2020.
18 March 2020:
New Horizons is being press checked at this time. Because of travel restrictions we are creating new systems to do these checks with some remote cameras and some exchanges of printed materials. We’ve never done this before so we, and our Chinese partners are learning together.
Currently we believe we’ll be fulfilling the Rewards for this Kickstarter in July. That is a very, very loose estimate at this point but we wanted to give everyone some visibility on the current estimates.
We will continue to update the community as we progress through this process and get firmer estimates on timelines.
14 February 2020:
New Horizons has been processed for production. We have completed our review of the files and have made our hand off to the factory. As noted above, we do not know when Thunderstone Quest will begin production or when Rewards will be delivered.
Status of the International Thunderstone Kickstarter
We are working with our partners on non-English versions of Thunderstone Quest. The situation in China has caused us to place this project on temporary hold while we refactor our delivery schedule. At this time, we do not have a firm date for when this Kickstarter will run.
Status of “To the Barricades for 2020 Delivery”
We originally planned to print more units of To the Barricades with the International Thunderstone Quest Rewards. Since that Kickstarter is now on hold, we are going to evaluate the cost to do a short run of these components as a stand-alone production job. Since the estimate of the cost and timing for that job is dependent on the re-opening of the Chinese factories we currently do not know if it is feasible or what the timing of those deliveries will be. We will continue to keep you advised as to our plans with regard to those components.
If you had placed an order for the 2020 delivery of To the Barricades you can cancel that order without penalty. Please email email@example.com for assistance.
Status of the Premium Sleeve Issue
Last year we recalled all the sleeves in our global inventory and had them shipped to our warehouse in Tennessee. We are going to do a physical inspection of the Sleeve inventory and segment it into two portions; the original Sleeves delivered in the first two Kickstarters, and the revised slightly differently sized Sleeves that were produced for the second Kickstarter.
Once we have a hard count on how many of the original Sleeves we have we’ll be contacting backers to provide options for either ordering more (while supplies last), or replacing any mis-matched sleeves received. We’ll have more information on the options we can provide, the costs, and the timing in March or April.
