Still seeking to make amends for Elemental: War of Magic's "disastrous launch," developer Stardock has announced that everyone who buys the PC fantasy strategy title before October 31 will receive its first two expansion packs for free.
Earlier this month, Stardock revealed that work on the first expansion pack would begin after it launches Elemental patch 1.1--an update that will be available in beta form to all players in "early November." Back then, Stardock had only revealed plans for the first expansion to be released free. The expansion will also be when veteran modder Derek 'Kael' Paxton will take over from the former lead designer, Stardock CEO Brad Wardell.
There's still no solid word on what the first expansion pack will bring, let alone the second, but Stardock has previously spoken of new quests, factions and the like. Stardock vows that as well as developing expansions, it "has committed to providing significant amounts of free post-release content and updates well into the future."
