Earlier today I posted a blog about upcoming Black Library releases, off the back of a load of new titles popping up briefly online. These releases didn’t stay visible for long, but I’d grabbed a few screenshots which I thought might be of interest to Black Library fans. Since then however, something unexpected has happened – Black Library have added an actual Coming Soon page to their website!
It’s been a LONG time since such a page has existed, hence the excitement. At present there isn’t a link to it on the front page [EDIT: there is, now] of the website, but if you dig a little it all becomes clear – to save you some digging however, here’s a nice screenshot! I’m kidding – click the image to follow the link to the page.
What’s even more impressive about this is that it’s organised by month, just like back in the golden days of Black Library! “So what?” you might say, “why’s that important?” Well it’s simple really – it means fans can plan ahead, deciding what they’re going to spend money on and saving up if necessary. It makes quite a big difference!
Obviously you can all go take a look at the page, but if you fancy a quick overview I’ve broken things down by month here. Where I’ve listed a release date it’s always the first one – so if there’s a download date and then a physical dispatch date, chances are I’ve gone with the download one.
