Anyone have any updates with whats happening with this?
Not yet. There should be an update not too long after Dragon Commander is released and a patch made for the retail version
(to include changes made in the digital version after it went gold).
There was no option to upgrade tiers, etc, with the kickstarter management system, since that would have taken a lot of work for what Larian assumed would be little demand. There were a few more requests for this after it went live, as well as adding money for add-ons, and a fix for a few people that didn't add shipping charges that should have, etc, so Larian said they would reevaluate that decision.
