New consoles have arrived to help balance the dread and disruption of COVID, and we’ve been enjoying the delicious detail of Ori and the Will of the Wisps at 120fps and the deadly distraction of Demon’s Souls… We have quite a few status updates to provide, so let’s get started.
The Future Press Shop is Open: We’ll start with our most exciting news: as you’ve probably noticed, we recently opened our online shop at future-press.com! All of our books will of course continue to be available from other retailers. Now though, you also have the option to buy them directly from us, which helps to support what we do and guarantees that the books will reach you in the best possible condition. With the shop being a brand-new endeavour for us we’re still working out the kinks, so we really appreciate your understanding if it turns out there are some hiccups along the way.
Shipping Regions: The Future Press shop launched with shipping available to the US and EU countries. Since then, we’ve been busy with the logistics of adding further shipping destinations. Our Aussie friends will be very happy to hear that we’ve just added the option to ship books to Australia. We’ve also been investing a lot of effort into adding Canada to the list of countries we ship to. While we’re not quite there yet, we expect to be sending books to Canadian addresses very soon indeed
Books Shipping Soon: The Art of Ori and the Will of the Wisps and our mammoth Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition guide are due for release in the holiday period. Both books should begin shipping from Amazon and our own warehouse in the US from next week. We failed to communicate the different release dates for EU and US versions of The Art of Ori and the Will of the Wisps when we put the pre-orders up, and we sincerely apologize for that, as well as for the slight delay. Many fans in Europe have already received their copies, since both books were printed in Europe and benefited from a much shorter travel time within the region.
The Art and Making of Control: Our epic collaboration with Remedy has been finished for quite some time now, but the pandemic has made print proofing (and the printing process in general) much slower and more difficult than anticipated. What’s more, the printer needed more time than planned to ensure the books meet our desired quality. The upshot of all this is that the books won’t be ready for pickup at the printer until just before Christmas. Since it’s also being printed in Europe, and shipping over the new year period is also a lot slower than usual, we now expect the books to reach fans in mid- to late-January. We are very sorry for this month delay and thank you in advance for your patience! We’ll provide an update on the exact dates for both the EU and US as soon we can.
