I'm new to P500. I've read the guide on GMTs website but I'm still unsure about when this games 3rd print will come out?
It's well over 500 but as far as I can see nothing on the website indicates if/when it will be reprinted/distributed.
Do P500 purchasers receive it before it goes to general release?
Also, unless you're keen on getting a copy ASAP you might take solace in the fact that you're not charged for the game until it goes to print. So no money is in limbo in case something went awry, and it's not tied up for however long.
The P-500 orders do get the game before any retail shipments are made, so there is preference there. But retail availability generally is within a month of P-500 shipping I've found. If you're abroad your local retailers may vary.
