Update regarding DLC in Carmageddon: Reincarnation:

Hey everyone,

I’d just like to respond to the various questions and comments regarding DLC for Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Simply put, everyone who pledged on Kickstarter will get the complete game. Kickstarter Backers will get the Early Access content, plus all subsequent updates that go together to make up the complete game. The “complete game” is what it says – the full-featured game as originally described, with multiple environments, cars, peds and events.

It’s common practice to offer DLC for games – hell, we did the equivalent back in 1998 when we released The Splat Pack for Carmageddon. DLC is the additional content we offer after the game is finished and complete because we want to keep the game fresh and new for our players long after its release. The $625k raised by our Kickstarter fans has contributed to development of the complete game. These Kickstarter funds are not being used to fund DLC development.

We hope that fans of the game will be excited to expand their game with more stuff from us here at Stainless, as well as the CarMODgeddon content that will be coming from the community as well.

Great but, Can we, Kickstarter backers, have any early early access? Or have to wait like the rest of the world?

Woohoo, nice you've been able to keep that beta period :)
Great news!

What's up with the DLC comment?

I think that might be the first time DLC has been referenced...

Will backers get any love in this area - especially the higher end backers?

Extremely unimpressed if KS/Paypal backers don't get Full Package access by default.

I´m sorry for asking, but my english skills aren´t perfect at all. So backers who pledged 25$ or more, will get instant eraly access + beta testing two weeks before early access???

So, ENTERING THE DRAW will "only" give a 25$-or-more-backer the livelong DLC-updates for free? Or those DLCs free for any sort of high-backer e.g. 150$ and more?
