    Default Early start confirmation.

    i pre-ordered the game from steam. I have confirmation of my bonus items but no confirmation of my access to the head start. Where can i find if i have access or not?

    Thanks and sorry if this has been asked already.

    read your order email....

    You will automatically gain access to all remaining beta events and Head Start (scheduled to begin on February 24th). Trion will send you an email before each beta event, and again before Head Start begins, with download instructions. Please make sure to add "@trionworlds.com" to your Safe Sender's list.

    I pre-ordered via steam and my email says nothing of the sort, and after applying the cd-key to my trion account I certainly got all the DCE items in the beta, but I'm wondering about the Early start as well and if i should bother dl the steam rift client or should i download it directly from the trion site when available?

    My Steam purchase email (with some details changed to x):

    Every pre-order, regardless of who/where it was bought from gets access to headstart.

    As long as you have applied your key to your Trion account you're good to go.

    Proof you say? Here ya go....


    Senior community manager Abigale speaking in the pre-order faq thread -

    "As long as you have applied a pre-order key to your account, you'll be able to download the launch client and play in the Head Start."

    "Do the pre-order codes serve as both VIP key (for betas) and Head Start access?"
    "Yes."

    "How can I play in Head Start?"
    "Head Start only requires a pre-order code. You can get a pre-order code at your favorite local game retailer, or from online partners." (Steam is ofc one such online partner)

    s'all good lads

    Any questions or whatever give me a shout.

    *edit*

    Also, if you haven't done so already, launch Rift via steam and the launcher will update, not sure if the current version that it updates to is the final version, may need to update again before head-start, but either way if ya do it now or say few hours before headstart begins, you can jump in game without having to wait on the download/update
