Child of Light Deluxe Edition (PS4 / PS3 / PC) @ Amazon - £15.99

Found 18th Mar 2014
This is the Deluxe / Collector's / Limited edition (with extras/collectables) rather than the standard version, for only a few quid more (looks a great deal) - and it will only be released in certain parts of Europe.
Better priced than Shopto, try Flubit for an even better deal.

Exclusive to European territories.
= Cross Buy PS4 & PS3 compatible =
Released - 30th April

The Child of Light Deluxe Edition will contain exclusive content including -

* a poster designed by Yoshitaka Amano, the renowned Japanese artist,
* a 24 page art book with unrevealed artwork
* Igniculus key ring.

This boxed edition will also include -

* additional game content, with a bonus quest
* a new character and
* a pack of collectibles

* ( you get none of that /\ with the standard digital version, just the game. ) *

Child of Light is created by a small team of seasoned developers based in Ubisoft Montreal. It has been developed on Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world. In Child of Light, the effect is akin to stepping into an interactive painting.

Child of Light is a reimagining of classic fairytales, inviting players on an epic adventure into the magical painted world of Lemuria.

Players will uncover mysteries, participate in turn-by-turn combat inspired by classic JRPGs, and explore a mystical kingdom.

The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the Queen of the Night.

Helped by her companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears, including dragons and other mystical creatures, in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.

It's a pity it doesn't come with a disc.

Afaik, this game is only available digitally on all platforms for now.

Will this have a platinum trophy? Heat added.

A sign of the times, boxed downloads, ok then...

It'll be $14.99 on the US PS Store - which is around £9 - so I'll download it from there. But heat added - looks like a little gem.

Bit annoying that the Wii U version isn't getting a limited edition. Pre-ordered the PC version and will probably pick it up on Wii U as well.

The Wii what?

Great idea to Flubit. Cheers OP.

Thanks for the heads up OP. Was looking at getting this and did not know about the deluxe edition:)

thanks

will there be a deluxe disc? Or just barebones?
I guess I'm waiting either way, but would have liked the extras...

looks interesting!

Does anyone have a good synopsis for the game? It looks like an RPG (assume turn-based)...has anyone got any other details about it? It at least looks like an interesting style and if it uses the Rayman engine it is going to look great and run smoothly.

what is the size of this as I would like to get it for my PS4 but want to know the download size.. Game looks great anyway and nice price

Put into Flubit to see what comes of it as I already have a £16 Shopto preorder. Nice find OP.

Thanks for this, wanted to chuck it into my wishlist for the glitzy edition till I actually found out if it was good or not. Hope the download doesn't end up being too bad, they still neglect the fact not all of us live in a city with good broadband half the time.

yeah I know, same here.. I would have preferred a disc of the game but hey, will still get it because it looks really good.

Yeah, that's right mate. I just prefer discs, especially when buying at retail. I like to collect games and have them available forever, so it bums me out when it is digital only. It won't bother plenty of people, but it bothers me. It's a pity, because this looks a great game, with some great extras...at a very reasonable cost.

I really hope more games don't start doing this, boxed games make things so much quicker to re-install, especially when some PC games are already upwards of 15GB downloads these days.

A nice boxed CE is something I really like, personally.

game looks gorgeous, i'll definitely be picking this up day 1. Looks like the battle system borrow's heavily from grandia, which is a great thing IMO!

£14.03 offer from Flubit. Nice.

Beware that if you order via Flubit it will probably come about a week after the release date. I've had nothing but trouble with Flubit.

Whereas mine was £1 more.....seems strange they offer customers differing prices.

Just to clarify, this is the Deluxe or Limited Edition with extras included. The price you're referring to is just for a standalone digital copy of the game - this is just a few quid more for those interested or who like collectables/limited editions etc. - only available in parts of Europe too.

I'm aware, which is why I added heat.

But as I said, I'll personally opt for the cheaper price - £6-7 cheaper based on Amazon's price - for the game, without the extra stuff I don't need or want.

Np, was just stating for benefit of all in case of any confusion. Hope you get yourself a good deal.

I wouldn't cancel your pre-order for at least a day. Last time I used them they took the order, then cancelled the following day.



The game is going to be £11.99 at launch meaning that this Amazon price is only £4 more expensive, not £6-7. Totally worth it.

I've never had a problem before, but there is no harm in leaving the proper preorder on there for a week of two. Cheers.

If you read both my comments you'd know I was referring to the price I will pay by purchasing the game using my US account. It's $14.99, which is around £9. £9ish is £6-7 cheaper than the Amazon price.

I'm aware it's not exactly the same thing, but as I use both EU and US PSN accounts, it makes sense to purchase the game this way for the cheapest price possible. I don't personally care about the extra stuff.

And Flubit are hit-and-miss it seems. I'm still waiting for my copy of inFamous: Second Son to arrive, which I ordered through Flubit. And prior to that, they cancelled my Lego pre-order. They offer a good service, but I'm not going to place any pre-orders with them in the future.


EDIT: Oops, I just realised my reply was really late. Haha. Don't log on very often, sorry.

Lasted 11 days, but finally caved and pre-ordered. PS4 arrives on Wednesday, so that's my excuse.

Ordered

Now that reviews are out and there is a score
of buying this I am not sure
My one regret if this I forgoe
