Derek Smart Explains Line of Defense EA Fees


3000AD recently revealed that Line of Defense is set to launch under Steam’s early access program at the rather hefty sum of $99 for the package. Derek Smart took to Twitter to explain the pricing as an insurance policy that only those interested in bug testing join, and that “freeloaders” are weeded out.

We’re a SMALL independent game dev making a MASSIVE game in a genre dominated and monopolized by SOE and their popular @planetside2 series. In contrast, from start to finish, LOD was developed by less than ten people. Including third-party contractors. Yeah. And unlike those other guys, we don’t take your money, then plonk you in useless assets (how do you like that hanger now?), a largely unfinished product or a product that may not even see the light of day. I don’t even need to defend against that premise; go look at my game releases. While they may not be everyone’s cup of tea, we still keep making them because we have and know our audience.

Smart also announced that Line of Defense will be adding in playable female characters.
