Anarchy Online Booster Packs Announced

Funcom Introduces "Booster Packs" To PC Market is the press release revealing Funcom's plan to sell "booster packs" for Anarchy Online, offering features in the works for their Shadowlands expansion pack, since it turns out this will not be on shelves for the "holiday buying season." That holiday buying season is, however, when the first of these packs is planned to be available, offering new land control features "along with additional graphic updates and new sounds." The release offers this on what these booster packs represent, as described by game director Gaute Godager: "These cool features were still too large in megabytes to offer as a regular content patch, but not large enough in content to call an expansion pack. We needed something in-between. We hated the idea of holding stuff back from our players until everything for Shadowlands was done. So, we came up with the idea of booster packs." This news will be the subject of an chat session at 5:00 PM EDT today via their Java chat client or with an IRC program by joining the server Irc.Sorcery.Net and the channel

14. By "Booster Pack" I think they meant Aug 12, 2002, 16:11 Dead_Cow
"Boost (our wallets for Xmas) Pack".

It's just not right. Put it into the expansion instead of reaming us for the expansion and the "booster pack". Totally not fair.
