So this goes live today, some awesome things the dev’s are doing for release:
Alpha Community Keeps The Game
Everyone who helped playtest the game (activated their Alpha test) gets to keep the game. Forever. For free.
To celebrate the launch, for the first 3 days, anyone who buys Pandemic Express on Steam gets an extra free copy to give to their friends.
Launch Price is under $10
The full MSRP for Pandemic Express will be $14.99, however we’re launching with a 34% Launch Discount!
The Road Ahead
We’ve got big plans for the game. You can find the roadmap above, but we’d like to address three major community requests separately.
1) Regional servers
As of right now, the game’s servers are located in Germany. This means that players from the Asia-Pacific region, South America and West Coast of the US might experience latency issues.
We will be closely monitoring the player count in every region, and as soon as we see that regional servers are a viable option, we’ll start working on implementing them ASAP.
2) Playing with your friends
This is one of the most frequently requested features, it will be added into the game soon. For now — hit “Play” at the same time as your friends, and you should end up in the same lobby.
3) Control rebinds
Another very important for a competitive game feature. We know it can be a pain, especially if you’ve used your custom keybinds for years. We’ll work on implementing it as soon as we can, but it may take a little longer than the first two.
