Square-Enix is determined to let gamers know that being a member pays (maybe mildly influenced by the excellent Atlus Spoils program?). To get the message across, they are introducing a new rewards program, which kicks off with Members points that come packed with Valkyria Profile: The Covenant of the Plume to start (and all Square games in the future). You can enter these in at the Members website and they will accumulate to earn goodies throughout the year. Cool!
The full summary of what being a member entails can be found here, but the short version is that a new community site, customizable 3D avatars and free goodies are coming your way sooner rather than later. No word on what the treats you will earn for points will be, but I’m quite interested to see what Square dishes up.
