Exclusive! New Limited Edition EaW pack

Empire at war.net brings you yet another exclusive story. Our friends at Lucasarts have informed me that going on sale April 24/28 (Europe) is a brand new Limited Edition Empire at War pack.

Included in this new edition, will be the Super Star Destroyer, ' which will delight fans' said David Silverstein, Producer at Lucasarts. 'In addition to this fantastic unit, fans can also enjoy 15 brand new multiplayer maps and to help Rebels, Yoda - complete with special force powers. 'he continued. 'We will be revealing more about Yoda as we build up toward the release date', he said.

This news might upset some fans - especially the modding community, as they have been working hard to recreate this missing units. 'The fact that we have now included the SSd, B-Wing and TIE Interceptor, shows that we do indeed listen to our fans. We wanted to offer more in this new edition of the game.' said David. It will also include patch 1.04, that will NOT be avaliable anywhere else.

Empire at War: Limited Edition goes on sale on April 24th (USA) and April 28th (europe) and you wont be able to get this units in any other edition

HOLY **** !

Man the guys at legacyofwar will not be happy... (or will they?, since now they dont have to model as much and can concencrate on things that are not in the buyable version).

Thanks DMUK

How will these new units act online? WIll only Collector Edition players be able to use the SSD or yoda online? a little unfair
Im assuming the CE will be more expensive than the original so whos going to buy it if they alrdy have the original?

Sooner or later someone's going to put them up for free DL on the internet, legal or not.

dam, this is what hhappens when you don't look at your calender

Don't think I'll get it though. EAW has too many basic issues, and there isn't a whole lot of new content.


EAW: Star Wars Realism v3.0 - a mod that improves the realism, balance & gameplay from the default EAW Space Combat & Space Skirmish. Introduces a FLEET! Deathmatch mode.

April Fool's Joke? I'm pretty damn sure that they're not going to make us PAY again for something that should have been included in the game in the first place.

Yeah, I'm sorry DMUK, but that "Limited Edition" sticker thing on the box is a little fake looking. I bet I could do that in Photoshop here without too much difficulty. I must admit though, on the main page when I read it, I was totally fooled until I looked at this thread. (April Fools isn't big in my house) Good one though! It was just outrageous enough to make us mad, but silly enough that I should have known better.

We at empireatwar.net can assure the authenticity of this report. The fact they decided to release it on April fouls day is irrelevant. They were waiting for the next month to announce the news for a ‘fresh start.’

I have to say I am interested to see how they pull this off…

Hey, empireatwar.net is the best resource for all things Empire at War. Lucasarts probably didn't announce it on their site because they don't work on saturdays.

This is great news indeed DMUK, since I don't even have EaW yet I can get this edition!

NOT only that the developers said the rebalancing will come in 1.04...SO what does that mean? All us people that dont WANT the Phantom upgrade have to deal with all the unbalanced/bugs and no more patches for us???


LMAO

guys it is complete fake. Petro is on another full time project. There is only a very small team who continues to support the game with patches etc. No way they can do it.
Besides rediting whole thing will cost much money for a result that is mostly incertain. Justi imagine this.

Another gold version to do and then another hard printing to pay plus the redistribution plus everything else.

Time to confess! Happy April fools to you all!

Yes indeed it was an April fools joke - I just cant help it and those who are regulars on here know that as well. I actually used some Wallpaper I found for the images and made all the graphics myself to make it look and sound as real as possible

Rotfl i knew it, I knew Lucasarts wouldn't do this it would be way too unfair. Also what gave it away was how you said it will ONLY be realeased in the UK. Yeah right....

I think he meant the 24th in the US and the 28th in Europe, but it doesn't matter now

Will the so called "Limited Edition" content be included in the 1.04 patch then? Would be great with the new units and maps.
