    WHAT IS THE AMS2 PADDOCK CLUB

    With the upcoming release of the Adrenaline Pack fulfilling the 2020-2022 Season Pass and prospects of new DLC packs already on the horizon, users have enquired about the prospects for a new Season Pass to cover these future releases. We also have had several users enquire about the possibility to join the AMS2 Beta program and participate in our development forum, as they had missed out on the previous opportunities.

    The AMS2 Paddock Club is what we have come up with to cover both requests - it is an extension of our previous backing campaigns, providing our most dedicated users with the opportunity to engage with AMS2´s development and contribute to its future prospects at a higher level.

    THE PURPOSE OF THE AMS2 PADDOCK CLUB

    Freedom to change or increment our plans and rearrarange schedules as may be required is critical for us to do what we do the way we do it - offering the Season Pass on Steam has proved antithetical to that approach, and conciling that early decision with our way of doing things over these first three years of AMS2´s life has proved challenging for us, and occasionally a source of understandable frustration to some users who for their money expect the goods to be clearly defined and delivered in more timely manner.

    Naturally it also had its benefits - it is much easier to define and execute a plan once you have both initial funding and a prospect for what the full budget will be, especially when there are licensing negotiations involved; at the same time, many of our users enjoy the convenience of paying a single fee to be all set with all that is planned for the game in the foreseeable future while also contributing to that future becoming a reality.

    The AMS2 Paddock Club boosts those benefits all around - we get some advanced funding to not only realize but possibly extend our plans, and those of you who are comfortable with our way of doing things contribute to that while getting everything you paid for, if not more - as participants in previous campaigns can attest, there is an ever-growing number of extra perks to reward those who not only put trust in us, but also have the patience and flexibility required to see their investment paid out.

    Beyond that transactional value, the AMS2 Paddock Club also offers those who are more passionate about the game an opportunity to engage with it at a deeper level - even though we always have an eye out for user feedback, those who are inside while plans and development are still in progress inevitably end up having bigger influence in the end result. At the same time, having that immediate rapport with our most dedicated users has proved invaluable in keeping development pointed in the right direction since the AMS1 days.

    For that to be preserved, we find important keep membership numbers reasonable and restricted to those who absolutely get what it is about - if you are just looking for a good deal and a chance to play updates early this probably is not for you, not least as playing early beta builds can often be cumbersome and there is no assurance the value paid for membership will grant any discount over buying the DLCs individually upon release (nor that you would be interested in them in the first place).

    This offer thus has been designed to preserve and extend that rapport more than it is to bring in more income - while funding from membership sales is welcome and will be fully directed to boost the development for AMS2 & potentially expand it with more premium content, the purpose of the Paddock Club is not to crowdfund its continued development as all existing plans for AMS2 are already fully funded.

    HOW TO GET AMS2 PADDOCK CLUB MEMBERSHIP

    AMS2 Paddock Club membership is available exclusively from our forum store (needs to be a registered forum user to access it).

    Upon clicking the link, user will be presented with one of the following options depending on what he currently owns:
    • US$ 199.99 for new members that don´t already own AMS2
    • US$ 169.99 for existing users that already own AMS2 Base Game
    • US$ 99.99 for existing users that already own AMS2 Base Game & All DLCs
    Payment is done via Paypal (with or without credit card).

    WHAT AMS2 PADDOCK CLUB MEMBERSHIP EARNS

    Upon completing the purchase, member will get the following in his/her email:
    • Automobilista 2 base game + all existing/future DLCs
    • Automobilista 2 Beta* Steam key
    • Automobilista 1 Ultimate Edition Steam key including all DLCs
    • AMS2 Paddock Club subforum access & voting rights in development polls
    • "AMS2 Club Member" Badge in Forum User Profile
    *Automobilista 2 Beta is a separate AMS2 app on Steam - it receives early alpha / beta updates and new WIP content (free or DLC) so members have the opportunity to test contribute to their development before they are deployed to the main game release.


    IMPORTANT NOTES:
    • AMS2 Paddock Club will be open for new members for limited time only
    • If you already have access to AMS2 Beta on Steam and Reiza51 forum here (be that from the 2015 Sim Racing Bonanza Campaign or the 2019 AMS2 Early Backing Campaign) you are all set - your backer status will be converted to AMS2 Paddock Club Membership, and you already are secured every future AMS2 DLC
    • We do not plan to offer membership packages anywhere else but the Reiza Forum store
    • We will not offer membership packages priced in currencies other than US Dollars
    • We will not offer discounts on these prices for the duration of the campaign
    • For technical reasons we cannot offer different upgrade options for users with some but not all DLCs
    • Refund requests will generally not be considered
    • We will reserve the right to revoke membership without refund if member fails to abide to general forum and / or Paddock Club rules
    EDIT: AMS2 Paddock Club access no longer available.

    "To purchase you must first link you steam account" ---- Er, does anyone know how to do that?

    EDIT:
    Never mind - looks like the reason I can't link it is because it's already linked!

    Welcome everyone! :)

    This is my understanding, yes! Pretty clear on OP and previous topic in area 51.

    It was a one off fee back in 2019. It sounds like it is the same deal now. I am sure Renato will confirm it though.

    I'm certain it's a one time deal. You buy the package, and you get all the things mentioned above.

    Must admit, i had to look at that closely. If this is the case, then this has to be the best value game/sim/anything that i've ever bought. Incredible value.

    Wow. I don't even know what to say. If members who currently have Reiza51 access (but not necessarily the AMS2 Beta) get not only Beta access, but all future DLCs as well - for free - this is like X-mas, birthdays, and winning the lottery all rolled into one. Holy moly. If my eyes weren't so dry from sitting on front of the screen I'd honestly be crying rivers of joy right now.

    It's a one time fee.

    All current and future AMS2 DLCs are included

    There are no plans for any regional pricing at this time

    Do we have an idea of how many DLCs will be included? Like a ballpark figure?
