If you choose to buy the game, all your progress will be saved and carried over. 

 

As for the LoD content, if you buy the LoD edition, you will keep it all. If you buy the standard version, you will lose only the LoD items. Also, if you buy it while you are subscribed to premier, you will get the 10% discount on the purchase price. Standard smile

Most welcome! I subscribed because I want to play early, and while I am awaiting the launch, have been delving into some of the old games I really enjoyed, like Dragon Age Origins, which I lost my original disks for. So, for me it was economical to be able to play multiple games. If I become totally addicted to Anthem, I will bite the bullet and buy it down the road probably.

All good points !!  I also pretty much subbed for the same reasons. I have been subbed for several months and plan on continuing my Premier Access because I also like strolling down the memory lane of older games.

 

Have to admit though; with many of the newer games...my stroll has been lass and less....LOL. Thinking

You may have to pre-order the LoD editition by the 22nd to keep the Founder banner without Premier. As far as I can tell, everything else should unlock even if you buy it after release.

 

Assuming you can even still pre-order it after the early access starts. Probably can, but not sure.

Actually according to a friend of mine in discord. there is some * going around there.

In chat with Origin atm. Got news on a bitof EA * you guys will want to know about. Brb.
Okay, so here's the thing. If you pre-ordered the standard edition and then bought a month of Premier in order to play early, you're going to be * sideways when that month runs out. Your month of play in the Legion of Dawn edition will become unavailable, and you will have to start over with the standard edition.
If you pre-ordered Legion of Dawn, this will not happen.
But apparently, some extra equipment and a few skins equals an entirely different instance of the game that cannot be carried over. You'd think it'd just be that the extra assets would disappear, but no such luck.
The only fix here is to upgrade your game to Legion of Dawn. That option will apparently show up on the game's Origin page at launch on the 22nd.
I suspect they're going to be up to their * in really pissed off gamers a month from now.

 

Seems there was a heavy case of support staff not knowing what they were talking about. and none of this is true afterall. no progress loss. but you do lose pre order bonuses if you don't get it before the 22nd. and you do lose LoD stuff if you get the standard edition

Mate, you'd better address to EA managers or to Bioware devs on twitter if you want to specify smth. At least here, EA guys confirmed multiple times that the progress is saved during Early access.
