Overview[edit | edit source]
Exposition Points (EP), formerly known as Bonus IP, is a game's pre-launch currency that comes with Package Tiers or is purchased in the add-ons section of the store. EP will be used during Exposition to purchase various starting items (see below).
Acquiring EP[edit | edit source]
EP can be acquired as follows.
- Purchasing a backer level >= $120, which comes with a set amount of EP.
- Purchasing an EP add-on.
Spending EP[edit | edit source]
Directly prior to and during Exposition, players will be able to spend their EP for various in-game items or features.
|“||Upon early access of the game players will be able to use the influence they’ve gained between now and then in order to gain perks in the world. Whether or not that’s allowing them to start as a non-traditional character, as an older character, in getting their foot in the door and a place in the world, whether or not it’s buying additional Sparks of Life so they don’t have to worry about some of the risks that they’re taking for a while, whether or not it’s potentially investing in unique or rare items that they can hold onto for as long as they can hold on to... There’s a wide range of things that they can do with that.||„|
