Summary: For those of you who have preordered, I am sure you have received the confirmation email recently stating now the status is shipping. But apparent it is in order of the preorder rather than the bulk sending all at once. As far as we know, noone has actually received the cards yet.
Here is the confirmation email from several days back. Key is Wulven has decided to send what they already have rather than delaying another four weeks and wait for rest of promo stuff to be ready. I actually admire this decision as it costs more for Wulven due to separate shipment.
The physical cards are now shipping by our distributor. The shipment will include:
+ 65 premium foil cards found in booster packs
+ 56 limited edition premium foil cards including a Legendary Neutral Ally with amazing artwork.
Digital bonuses will be awarded once the next version is approved:
+ Epic In-Game Avatars
+ Digital foils of the 65 foil cards available in the digital game
+ Shadow Crystal bonus
Due to manufacturing times, the remaining physical bonuses will be shipped separately once they are available, currently estimated at another 4 weeks.
+ Counters and Tokens
+ Card Sleeves
+ Collector’s Tin
Shadow Era will be distributed by Alliance, the largest game distributor in the US. Retail stores should start to carry the game in another 4-8 weeks.
