Maybe in the near future as the release date gets close we’ll get to see the pre-book option.
The game’s graphics and 3d character images are great. This game was in development for over 6 years and the players who were waiting for it to release are very excited to play the game. By far from watching the trailer the game seems pretty fun and exciting, the developers did not announce any early access date for the game so it is hard to say whether they are going to release it or not. Still, players can wait for any further announcements made by the game developers.
