We sometimes offer preorders in the store - items or bundles you can purchase before they are released that will automatically be available for you to open once the release date arrives. You will be charged for the items as soon as you place the order for them, and you will receive a confirmation email at that time. If your preorder contained booster packs, those will appear in the Packs scene as locked until the release date. Starting on the release date, you'll be able to open those, and other preorder content will be available to use in your collection.
