This new feature will allow us to add items to future events and the store which can modify a player's experience or account. Items can be both temporary or permanent, and some items can only be used a set amount of times. Event items will also be listed in this area for ease of use.
All current players have been given a Founder's pack for playing during the first month of launch. (Thank you for the support!) Additionally, all players were given a Research Accelerator when they installed the game - however, this offer is exclusive to those who install the game prior to 10/24/16. So get any family and friends to install now before they lose the chance to gain this permanent item.
Check your items to see if you qualified for a Founder's pack!
