Has anyone seen any mention of digital sales being reinstated after the addition of new worlds? My buddy plans to play with me, but every GameStop in Dallas seems to be out of physical PC copies of the game.

I haven't seen anything myself so I'm not sure yet. They probably won't restart digital sales quite yet, though. I think they want things to settle down and smooth out and to see how things are going before they restart digital sales. So, probably not today, though hopefully soon.

Bump. When are we going to hear about this? My friend has been waiting to play with me since launch and there are no physical PC copies of the game to be found.

Probably not until after the next set of server upgrades, scheduled I think for next week, along with the AFK kick timer.

I really think we are going to need to see at least 20 more servers before they even attempt to open sales up again.

If they were smart they would have 50 on standby.

I think right now their main focus is making sure everyone who bought the game can play, which seems to be the case. They only added 3 servers and increased the capacity of all the old ones though.

I don't think anyone wants a repeat of the first week over at SE, and they seem overly cautious (which is what led them to launch with such low expectations imo)

I would be shocked it they opened sales by next week, unless of course they have a large amount of servers and bandwidth increase to handle it by then.

I have heard that physical copies on the SE website still exist and you can play using those, but not sure how long shipping takes and if by the time you get it they'll have digital sales open, since It will cost more to have it shipped I would only do that if you are desperate. Also if you can get a key, a lot of the servers are locked right now as it is.

I would give it another week. I bet we hear something next week.

I suspect, other than the website, that SE will not produce/send out more copies of the physical disc until the congestion settles down. I traveled far and wide throughout my city looking in obscure game stores for the PC version and all had zero copies. Even Amazon is T.O.S.
