Update for the First Expansion
Release: June 2, 2008
Press Release: English only


This page details what content can be found in the SotS Collectors Edition that was released onto shelves in May 2008. The CE will also update the SotS + BoB code base from BoB Version 1.4.1 to CE 1.5.2. The CE 1.5.2 code update is also available for download for free as a standard update so that all of the SotS + BoB players will stay concurrent and compatible with CE players. This will then move us from the BoB era to the CE Era.

The 1.5.2 update is cumulative and can be installed over all previous versions of Born of Blood.
