Exactly - and it just makes all the outrage regarding this even more bizarre. There are people complaining that this release somehow screws over people who have already purchased the game - but this makes no sense as it’s just the complete game as it currently exists with three extra (and imo pointless) suits. I assume the primary reason behind the release is to get the game back into physical retail stores. In NZ/AU the steelbox edition from Square Enix went “end of life” ages ago, and I assume this is the same in other larger markets as well.
The release is aimed at new players, not existing, so this outrage (which is running rampant on reddit) is just confusing af.
