Difference between $15 back and Early Access competition?
#1 Submitted: Thu, 10/10/2013 - 12:13

Will someone who backed $15 get the game and all expansions forever?

What is the prize for the Early Access competition?

I'm thinking someone who backed $15 will get the game and all expansions but they'll have to wait until the game is released in order to pay. However, Early Access winners get access to the beta before release? Is that right?

As a side note, wasn't there an Early Access level on Kickstarter? Does this mean the 99 competition winners have the same "rights" as them?

Hi King Mustard.

$15 and above backers will get access to game during Early Access, and will get all future DLC as well. This is also what the winners of our Early Access Prize Draw will receive. Early Access is currently set for Q1 2014.

Backers who pledged $25 and above will also get Beta access to the game prior to Early Access.

Hope that helps make that clearer!

My original understanding of the competition would be to "upgrade" to include all DLC.

However, after the furore created by mentioning the dreaded letters DLC, now all backers of $15 or more will get the full games plus all DLC.

The higher tiers ($25 and above) were always penned to get Early Access anyway...

So, what do the 99 winners of the competition now get to make the win worthwhile? (Seeing as the originally stated reason of including all the DLC has been given to everyone...) Even earlier access to C:R? Maybe even to be able to get hold of some of the current development builds???

Ah, I see. So if someone backed $15 a year ago and had now won the recent competition, what should they do with competition prize? :P

I'm also wondering what a $25 and above backer (who gets Beta access anyway) who entered the competition when there was an additional prize at stake (ie the lifetime DLC), and won, gets...

I pledged 20$ few months ago, but I would love to get into Beta. So if I would pledge another 5$ now, would it be added to those 20$ I pledged before? Or do I need to go with another 25$? :) Just asking to be sure.

I'm afraid our Beta access rewards were only available in pledge tiers which are no longer available. The current available pledge tier ($20) provides Early Access in Q1 2014.

Ok, my bad. Totally misunderstood that one. Thanks for clarification :)
