Those who purchased the Explorer's Pack through the PC/Mac Store also received early access to the game five days before release, along with a surprise two-day grace period of additional free play. Physical copies of the standard edition only received three days of early access. PS4, Xbox One and Japanese pre-orders did not include early access, but still received the Explorer's Pack. The Explorer's Pack was temporarily made available again during the Japanese free trial campaign, almost two months after launch in Japan.
