Preordering the expansion?

Will there be a chance to pre-order the expansion along with Spirit Island? I'm getting copies through Kickstarter, but would like to also recommend the preorder to folks. Has the pricing for the expansion been decided?

Thanks for whatever you can tell me!

Thanks! But I still only see the base game listed there? Do I need to wait for the store to update or something?

EDIT: Or maybe you're saying that the $49.95 gets the base Spirit Island game + the events expansion, contra to what the description says?

Just wanted to flag this bit from the Q&A today with Christopher:

Quote:
grysqrl: Is the Spirit Island expansion going to be available for pre-order? Looks like just the base game right now.

GTGChristopher: @Grysqrl Good question! I'll poke Paul about it.

GTGChristopher: We'll be putting up the Spirit Island expansion soonish!

I might have missed it being said somewhere, but how long will it be up for pre-order?  Might be a few weeks before I know if I can fit this into my budget.

ya my wife informed me i have to choose one, preorder spirit island or kickstart oblivAeon. Guess I am backing OblivAeon and will just have to get spirit island later.


My wife thinks Sentinels is ruining our marriage. I think she doesnt know what shes talking about because she wont sit down to play it

The Spirit Island expansions is now up for preorder on the web store for those of you who are interested! I tried to put it up Friday but we crashed the website...

Sorry but I'm a little out of the loop.  I backed Spirit Island on KS. Is the expansion stuff that I'm already receiving as a backer or is it new stuff? (I assume the former.)

If you backed the Kickstarter than you will be receiving the expansion already.

That's right. This expansion just lets people that pre-order now get the main things that came with the Kickstarter.

@Chromium Man

Yes, if you backed on KS you are definitely already getting the expansion for free!

Am I too late for pre-ordering the game + expansion? It says it's out of stock.

Yes, you are. You now need to wait until it actually comes out.

So branch and claw is the name for the expansion? Cool. Bark and Bite would have also been a good name
