I am new here and I dont know if this was addressed in any thread I am not aware of.
So I bought Phoenix Point already a couple of months ago.
Now that the game is going to the epic store do I need to be aware of something?
What will happen when the game launches?
Do I get access to it via the Epic Game Store or do I get send an Email where I can download it like I could with the previous alpha versions too?
you will be sent an email with a redemption key for a copy on the Epic Store. If you pre-ordered the game before March 12th of this year you will also get an email with a key for the game on Steam/GoG when it releases there one year later.
If you pre-ordered a version that contains the backer builds you’ll have already been sent a key for the backer builds through the Epic Store
Like Yokes said you will get a key for steam/Gog a year later as well as a key for the final game on Epic in addition to the backer build key.
You are free to do what you want with the keys.
If you redeem the backer build key you will need to close the Epic launcher in the system tray and reopen it to clear a bug that prevents your library from updating with the backer build
:edit: since you are one of the people that pre-ordered before March 12th, your copy of the game on epic also includes the dlc. You are going to want to read this thread to know everything you are getting
