When Star Trek Online: Legacy of Romulus drops on May 21st, 2013, players will finally be able to indulge their new three-year long curiosity of being able to play as a Romulan (and Remans). Cryptic Studios has released a new trailer, just over a month before the expansion is scheduled to be released, detailing certain bonuses that can be acquired at a discount price if players reserve them before launch day.
There are two packs available for pre-order (the expansion itself is free, players are paying for premium items), the Starter Pack and the Legacy Pack. They are detailed below:
Starter Pack ($19.99, $31 value)
- T’Varo Light Warbird
- T’Varo Warbird Retrofit
- Liberated Borg Reman Officer
- Survivor of Romulus Title
Legacy Pack ($124.99, $181 value)
- D’deridex Warbird Retrofit
- Mogai Warbird Retrofit
- Dhelan Warbird Retrofit
- Premium Romulan Faction Species – Reman
- Starter Pack + Nine Extra Items, including: Scorpion Fighters, D’ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser, Valdore Heavy Warbird, Special Reman Duty Officer Mini-Pack
Even for all the content being provided. $124.99 seems extremely over-priced. However, with the way STO has grown, and the popularity of the Romulan storylines and faction, it may be worth to a fair amount of people. No word has been given as to whether or not these items will eventually be made available for purchase individually. Complete details on the Legacy/Starter Pack items can be found on the official STO website, linked below.
