    Pre-ordering really is the way to go!!!

As an added bonus, the first 500 fans to pre-order will receive a KoKo Kringle chocolate bar! With all these extra features this really is the best way to go – oh did we mention, you also get your game before it is available in stores?  

    What is EDS (Extended Download Service) and do I need it? The EDS allows you up to five years to download your game; this is great for digital orders should you get a new computer or your computer crashes you can simply log in to your shop games account, access your order and re-download your game.

    Physical orders: anyone who purchased a physical game will receive an email when pre-orders release letting them know that their strategy guide is available for download. They will then receive a separate email with tracking information once it is available. (No tracking number provided for International Postal orders.)

    Digital orders: digital download game pre-orders will receive the notification email for both the game and strategy guide on the day that digital download games are released.

    Due to a high volume of pre-orders, shipping occurs over a period of 2-3 days. All pre-orders will ship on or around May 12th, 2015. Remember that UPS shipping times do not include weekends or holidays, so do not count those days when estimating arrival. USPS continues to move packages over the weekend, so you can expect your order to arrive in approximately 5 days with this option. Also, please note that shipping times may vary depending on your location.

    Domestic orders will be updated with shipment tracking as soon as they ship. You will receive an email confirmation with the USPS or UPS tracking number usually the day before the order actually ships. It can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for USPS & UPS to update their site with the tracking information, so if you receive a message stating the tracking number cannot be found, then wait and try again later.
