When i preordered the game from amazon i was set to get the M55 Argus but now with game not selling mass effect 3 I am not being told i will be getting the N7 gun and armour instead. The mass effect wiki says anyone who buys the game new gets the M55 Argus but amazon make it sound like I will not get it, Does anyone know if i will be getting both or just N7 stuff.

The N7 stuff is in the CE I think. There are not N7 weapons for pre-order. just the Argus and a shotgun from origin I think.

I thought the N7 arsenal was only for collectors edition?

Did you pre-order the CE or regular?

It is the N7 warfare pack not the N7 arsenal pack. From the amazon site: All customers who pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 and were due to receive the M55 Argus will receive the N7 Warfare Gear instead.I got the standard edition.

wiki is out of date, one of the bioware guys mentioned that the n7 pack includes the armour and 2 guns, one being the one intial given for all preorders before this game thing happen.

Most likely all 3 items are linked to a single code. ill try dig up the offical response for you.

Is the M55 Argus Assault Rifle included with the N7 Warfare Gear and Origin pre-order packs?



Yes, the M55 Argus Assault Rifle is a channel wide offer and available to everyone who pre-orders.

So even if we ordered the CE we still get an armor and two gun unlocks? It's just a blanket offer to everyone that preordered? I didn't realize that. :O

Yes there were sites only offering it for standard editions however since then ea has given out codes to supply all orders or least the ones that needed then due to the issue with game. amazon however are always late at updating things.

Before anyone else gets too excited or confused like I did, this change in pre-order bonus only applies Amazon UK. If your pre-order is with Amazon US then you still only get the Argus rifle. You won't get the N7 Warfare Pack.

I'm still excited. A freebie is a freebie. I thought up until today we didn't get any preorder bonuses, especially CEs. Still kinda dumb that standards get the $10 too, but this softens the blow. Plus I'm getting mine for the standard price (w/ tax). :D

My order is "shipping soon" and I can't recall if Amazon sends out "Your order has shipped" emails. Anyone's order shipped yet?

Amazon does send "item shipped" e-mails. At least for Super Saver and Standard shipping anyway.

Hmm, not sure if Blockbusters have a preorder bonus or not.
I was that desperate for the N7 edition that I forgot to check.

Thanks for looking that up, mate, but I ordered in store. Maybe I'll hit ebay if there's codes that are cheap. :)

My order still says shipping soon and I'm freaking out. I've had trouble sleeping all week fearing something wouldn't go right and I wouldn't get my preorder in time and now it's starting to become real. Last time I checked Amazon didn't have a warehouse in Washington state, so if they aren't going to ship it out tonight it won't get it here. Zomg...

I doubt CS will tell me anything, but I'm about to hit them up and be like wtf? BRB in 10mins.

Edit

Me:I'm just wondering if my order will make it by tomorrow? Last I checked you guys don't have warehouses in Washington state.

Krushna Chand:The order had been placed on truck and will be delivered to you tomorrow for sure.


Me:Oh ok.

Email: Hello,

I can confirm that we still expect to ship your order in time to be delivered to you by Mar 6, 2012.

We'll send you an e-mail when your order is shipped with your tracking number. Your order could ship any time between now and right before the estimated delivery date.

Just in case I'm not the only on freaking out. :3

I'm in Washington state and in the same boat as you - not quite freaking out (yet) - but wondering whether a) my order will arrive on release day, and b) whether it will be the Collector's Edition, which Amazon.com ran out of a couple of months ago.

Thanks - now I'm freaking out, too :(

Yyyyyep. Shipping soon. As long as we're all in the same boat, I think with your answer we'll all be good. If they're gotten a large amount of them to ship out (which is likely the case since CE is sold out), I'm sure they might consider getting everything packaged and on the trucks, THEN process the orders. Not the most organized thing to do, but I've had to do it in the past myself.

Normally they are good about updating it though. I guess like someone else said maybe it's because they want to make sure they have all there ducks in a row before sending out emails. I mean they have been sold-out for months, so there is no reason to believe I wouldn't be getting a copy or getting it on time, yet the fact remains this is Mass Effect 3 and I've been waiting with baited breath for over 6 months for this to show up at my door.
