Tabula Rasa Pre-Order Bonus Pack Ships

TRpreorder_3D.JPGNCsoft has sent word out today that the pre-order bonus pack for Richard Garriott’s Tabula Rasa has started shipping out to retailers across North America and Europe and should begin showing up on store shelves very soon (it’ll also be available online at the PlayNC Store beginning tomorrow).

So what comes with the pre-order pack? Well, for starters it provides instant access to the beta test (which I’m currently in and really enjoying) and three days of early access to the final live game prior to its public launch this fall. Exclusive character emotes, in-game pets, and a DVD loaded with the game client, bonus wallpapers and artwork are also included in the box.

“There is an amazing amount of anticipation for Tabula Rasa‘s launch within our development team and the player community,” said Richard Garriott, executive producer. “The player feedback at this point has been extremely helpful and we’re putting the final touches on the game. This pre-order release truly marks the final stages in developing this epic adventure, and since owning the pre-order allows players beta access, it is a great way to try Tabula Rasa out before we launch the game.”
