Landmark is currently offering 3 different 'founder's packs'. Each of them advertise as offering some kind of access to the closed beta, however they use different wording in the alt text (hover mouse over "Unrestricted Closed Beta Access");

Settler pack;

Unrestricted closed beta access; Be among the first people who get access the the landmark closed beta with unrestricted closed beta access.

Explorer pack;

Unrestricted closed beta access; Be one of the first to play landmark as we enter the closed beta period.

Trailblazer pack;

Unrestricted closed beta access; Be one of the first to play landmark as we enter the closed beta period.

As you can see description of the beta access of the settler pack is different. Is there an actual difference between the closed beta access of each pack? If so, what closed beta access does each pack offer?

Please refrain from speculative answers, only answer from personal experience or by citing official info.

  • @Frank OK, I'm clearly being a dumbass but I can't see any more information than what I have quoted. Can you answer with a quote containing the relevant info please?

  • There doesn't seem to be any reason believe the that "be among the first" is supposed to mean anything different than "be one of the first". All the options offer "unrestricted closed beta access", the first option just mentions this twice. Those are the only differences in the quoted text, so it seems you're reading in an ambiguity here that doesn't exist. They all clearly offer the same "unrestricted closed beta access". The difference between the products is everything else listed in the page you linked.

  • That said, Landmark has been in closed beta for one and half years now, and shows no sign of coming out of it. This throws in to question what "closed beta" is supposed to mean, regardless of which pack you buy. It's looking more and more likely this may be the only release the game gets.

    @Timelond64 There's no reason to assume the original poster is blind, or that his browser is broken, or that he's asking a different question than what he posted above.

The page you linked actually details each pack, at the bottom. It is entirely possible that without the correct plugins, the initial pack prices will appear, without the ability to directly purchase the pack and the list of included benefits.

Please keep in mind that two of the packs are upgrades. If you buy a more advanced pack, you will receive all the benefits from the previous packs, as well. While still available, you have the option to upgrade an existing pack here.

In regards to the closed beta rollover text, both the Explorer and Trailblazer packs advertise "Be one of the first to play Landmark as we enter the closed beta period", while the settler pack advertises", while the Settler pack advertises "Be among the first people who get access to the Landmark Closed Beta with unrestricted Closed Beta access". The observations that these two wordings say exactly the same thing are backed up by the fact that The Settler Pack is the only pack to use alternate wording, but is included in both The Trailblazer Pack and The Explorer Pack.

  • This ignores the fact that the alt text, when mousing over "Unrestricted Closed Beta Access" is diffrent in each pack. Which is what I was asking about.

  • @Jekowl, the only one with differant wording is the Settlers pack. All three versions include the settlers pack.
