This is just a thank you note to all of the fan base...hence the ton of ships and bunch of weapons and techs and, especially, the price. A lil going away kitchen sink pack to keep you having fun while the world moves towards SotS2 and other things. There are a couple lines here and there in tech descriptions that might hold a clue or two [for the future], but in general we wanted to concentrate on just...stuff! ...instead of forcing any story arc stuff out of sequence since this ship pack was NOT planned for way back when cause, to be honest, we never dreamed things would go this well.
Also there will be a pre-ANY update to current SotS to fix outstanding bugs and quirks. You will NOT be forced to get the shippack just to get the latest fixes --Mecron
About boxed version:
since larger more expensive expansions have not been boxed outside of more precise markets like England, I would suspect this economy pack will not see its own box. -- Mecron
ANY comes with a cinematic button that will allow you to watch the 3 intros [from SotS, BoB and AMoC] in order. -- Mecron
