There is no monthly subscription fee. The game was designed to support either F2P (Free-to-Play) or B2P (Buy-To-Play) monetization models; with both supporting in-game transactions via the purchase of items.
In the case of either model, the Starter Kit is the lowest barrier to entry. The four optional Tactical Advancement Kits are similar to DLC which can be purchased either at the start, or later.
DO I HAVE TO BUY STUFF?
Once you buy the game, either via a Starter Kit or Tactical Advancement Kit, you can play for as long as you like without having to buy anything else.
As you play, you will earn Combat Experience Points which you can use to purchase certain in-game items.
Using in-game currency, you can also buy individual items from within the game’s cash shop interface via Supply Platforms located through the game world.
Below are the class of items which you can purchase in the game. See the online game dB for a full list.
- Combat Experience Points
- Combat Training Certificates
- Standard inventory items (e.g. body armor, jetpack), neural implants
- Weapons, weapon attachments, ammo, explosive ordnance, deployable units
- Androids (as NPC companions)
- Limited vanity items (e.g. colored body armor)
NOTE: You cannot buy vehicles or aircraft. They can only be obtained by purchasing CTC which gives access to them for a limited period of time.
HOW DOES THE FINANCE SYSTEM WORK?
The game’s currency, GALCOM Credits (GALCRED), can be purchased with real money.
GALCRED can then be used to purchase various game items.
The current exchange rate (subject to change) is 100 GALCRED = $1 USD.
