Trion Worlds announces a new business plan for Atlas Reactor
, saying the
team tactics game will be sold via digital distribution, rather than be a
free-to-play game as was originally planned. The
April Producer’s Letter on the game's website
explains how this works, and
what it means to players who have already purchased credits during the beta
under the F2P model, adding that open beta testing is on the way:
everyone who has already supported us by buying a Founder’s pack or purchasing
in-game credits, thank you so much for your support. We want to make sure you’re
taken care of in this transition. As a result, if you have already bought $10 or
more of in-game credits, or bought any of the current Founder’s packs, you now
own the game! Additionally, if you purchased the Starter Pack, Freelancer Pack,
or Trust Pack, you will be receiving a ton of additional rewards.
Today we are announcing 3 new ways to access Atlas Reactor. You can view the new
pricing structure here, as well as the premium gifts we are awarding to pre-sale
purchasers. These will be available in a few weeks.
$29.99 for full access to Atlas Reactor allows us as developers to focus on the
things we believe you care about the most: The competitive, balanced fun rather
than store mechanics.
We’re going to be discounting the Atlas Pack to $19.99 for a short period of
time. We will also be giving many opportunities to try the game before buying.
Free weekends (including the weekend of May 13th – 15th), trials, friend
referrals, and the Open Beta are all on the horizon.
