In other games it might be called a founder’s pack, but in Wild West Online, the team is calling it an Early Bird special. No matter what the lingo, the end result is a pre-order bundle that allows players an avenue to secure alpha and beta access, a discounted Steam key, and some extra cosmetics, such as an exclusive horse skin, a gun skin, and a character outfit.
The Early Bird packs range from $20 to $60 and will only be on sale through July 7th. The two higher-priced bundles also contain in-game bonuses such as housing plots and currency.
The team took pains to mention that this offer is only for early testers who want to get in on the ground floor and don’t mind playing an unfinished product. Fortunately, the studio promised “no fuss” refunds up until the second alpha test for anyone who buys a pack and then changes his or her mind: “This gives you a chance to play the alpha yourself and opt-out if you think the game won’t develop into the game you wanted.”
While you’re mulling over whether or not to pay into Wild West Online at this juncture, take a gander at some early in-game footage after the break. It’s just some scenery flowing by, but hey, it might spark your imagination!
