Cliffhanger Productions, makers of the Shadowrun Online Kickstarter project, announced a new business model for their game. While they are planning the game to be free-to-play, there will also be a special Campaign Server.
Those who pledge over $25 during the Kickstarter drive (or for $39.99 afterward) will be able to play the game with no additional charges and all items in the game can be purchased with in-game cash. The Free-to-Play server will have premium items available for real money and an additional premium subscription will offer booster packs and special shops and major content updates will be sold separately every three or four months for both servers.
The Kickstarter has also been updated with new backer rewards, including t-shirts, hoodies, and a boxed copy of the game — find out more at Kickstarter.com/shadowrun-online.
