D&D Online pre-order pack

Early beta access, sundry perks.

Those of you looking forward to hacking things up in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach can get an early start this Friday, Atari's announced, by picking up the pre-order pack from retailers.

The pre-order bundle offers beta access, early entry to the game itself, a bit of spangly artwork and two in-game items exclusive to people who buy into the build-up - an "Amulet of +1 Armour Class" usable by any race or class, and a "Ring of Haggling", which gives your permanent discounts when buying items.

The full game launches on March 3rd in English, with a German/French-translated version going on sale in those countries on March 24th.

And if you can't be bothered to wait 24 hours to buy the pre-order pack, you can find details of how to get on the beta even sooner over on the European website.
