POE Boasts 2M Players; Patch Details; Supporter Packs Update

Grinding Gear Games announces that Path of Exile now has more than two million registered accounts since the action/RPG entered open beta testing in January. "We're really pleased with Path of Exile's reception. It blew our expectations out of the water and continues to grow every day," responds Chris Wilson, producer for Grinding Gear Games. "The continued feedback and support from our fans has been great. We expect to add a lot of new content and features during the Open Beta period as we approach full release later this year." They also continue to update the open beta on a weekly basis and just this morning posted a lengthy update outlining plans for the version 0.10.4 content update they plan on releasing next week as well as patch notes for a new version 0.10.3B hotfix that launched yesterday. Next week's patch will introduce a new player skill and four new unique items, offering a teaser image to whet appetites. Finally, they have an update about shipments of physical goods from closed beta supporter packs along with the question of whether players would welcome a new set of such rewards for open beta supporters:

Many people haven't yet received the physical goods from the supporter packs that they ordered towards the end of Closed Beta (or in the case of some of the more crazy signing requests, earlier in the Closed Beta). Our bulk signing of physical goods was delayed by the launch of the Open Beta, but we now have signing stations set up at the office again and a lot of shirts/posters/DVDs/CDs are getting signed each day. We have also replenished our stocks of the manufactured physical goods required for these packs and are packaging/shipping as many as we can per day. Thanks very much for your patience!

Quick question: How much interest is there in the return of physical goods supporter packs for Open Beta that have different contents than the Closed Beta ones? We've been holding off on pursuing this idea until we have fulfilled the orders that people have been patiently waiting for from Closed Beta. I get more and more mail about this per day from excited fans who want to purchase packs that include physical merchandise (and exclusive pets).
