Upon purchase, the colors are tied to the player's account and they will be able to use the selected color palette without limits.
Two bundles can be purchased to save the player some platinum. Choice A features 5 color sets: Classic, Saturated Classic, Storm, Ice, and Fire; Choice B features 3 color sets: Grineer, Infested, and Smoke.
Legacy Color Palettes
Until Hotfix 14.0.9 (2014-07-26) there was bug that caused the gamma values for all the color palettes to be higher than normal, which had the affect of making all the colors (with the exception of 'true' black from the smoke color palette), to be a few shades lighter than intended. This issue was fixed in the aforementioned update, and gave every Tenno who logged in during the next two weeks the Gamma color palette for free.
In Hotfix 14.1.2 (2014-08-01), the Legacy Color Palettes option was added in the Gameplay tab of Settings menu. This toggle option reverts the color palettes to the pre-Hotfix 14.0.9 (2014-07-26) color schemes.
