Has PGI made any sort of statement about whether if people who pre-ordered MW5 originally before the EGS exclusive announcement will be able to trade that in for a copy on Steam?

I originally pre-ordered the game and kept the pre-order despite the EGS exclusive announcement. I have yet to install EGS(and have no plan to) and therefore have not even used my copy of the game.

I can't seem to purchase or download the new content on XBox store? Base game is available, but not expansion.

*Edited to add, I found it, but the pricing seems a bit off. I already own it on Epic, but am excited to purchase it on Xbox for the console experience. I bought the DLC on EGS, but I may hold off on the Xbox purchase until the pricing is clarified. At the moment it seems that you buy the base game for $49.99, and then the DLC is an in-game purchase for an additional $19.99, and that doesn't seem correct. I have currently the base game installed via Game Pass, but I'm hoping that there's some sort of bundle purchase added that includes both for the $49.99 available on other platforms, so I can go ahead and purchase it.

Also, and this is sort of on me, I purchased the dang Digital Extras pack along with the expansion on the EGS, BEFORE noticing that I didn't need to since I already owned the original Digital Deluxe Edition from EGS launch. Would be very nice if that could have been a bit more clearly defined, or shown as "already owned" on the EGS.

That being said, really stoked right now, so glad this stuff is here, and really, a huge thanks to all of you for your hard work!

So, I have been playing Mechwarrior 5 Mercenaries since it came out on Epic. Tonight, I went to load it, and it said it was running an update and would start following it. After the update it keeps telling me it can't load, needs Microsoft Visual C and runtime. HELP!!!!!


I am having this exact same problem. And I was even playing earlier this afternoon so I know it was no known problem that popped up today.
There goes my evening after waiting all day.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to trade-in your EGS key. It's prevented by steam's rules.

I will say it now...anyone with an AMD video card should probably NOT update their game from the previous version. Make sure Epic Game Store auto-update is OFF. Wait until either PGI and/or AMD sort out the bad visual artifacts/corruption and stuttering. At this point I will NOT be buying the DLC until fixes are made...it is sad and disappointing...you guys broke the game for some us with this update. I sincerely hope PGI starts troubleshooting...because I doubt I am the only one with this issue.

There was a window to request a refund for your pre-order, but it closed a long long time ago.

Yup, and good thing they did too! That aside, I don't see why Steam wouldn't have rules saying money spent in other games stores doesn't translate.

A$71. Lulz. More than RDR 2. The reviews are saying joysticks are broken as hell as well.

I feel $A20 is about my price point... hopefully joysticks are fixed by that point as well.

Anyone having the issue that even though they purchased the addon, the game keeps telling them you don't own it?
On EGS of course and I did keep my pre-order back in the day.

Okay, working now! Just took a while it seems.
So anyone getting this, no need for panic. :D
