Miner Wars MMO Available On Pre-Sales

By on January 12th, 2012 6:37 am

Miner Wars is a space-based simulation shooter that combines a single player story game and an MMO.

The Miner Wars franchise branches into two different products: Miner Wars 2081 (that features single-player and multiplayer) and Miner Wars MMO (its massive multiplayer online version). The first game is due for release in Q1 2012 and it is part of Space Sector’s Sci-Fi/Space Games You Can’t Miss in 2011 list. The MMO Miner Wars is targeted for release sometime later. The beta is scheduled for Q4 2012.

Yesterday Miner Wars’ devs launched a pre-sales campaign for their MMO (almost a full year before the MMO goes beta). They are offering 2 years of subscription after the game comes out for a price of $19.99 USD. They also promised to give “access to the pre-alpha of MMO [that] will be most likely given to our loyal customers earlier, in Q2-Q3/2012“.

Devs’ reasons for launching the pre-orders so soon include:

– To determine peoples’ interest in the MMO compared to single/co-op. We may start focusing on the MMO development sooner, so fans will also receive MMO pre-alpha sooner.
– To support the developers (funds would enable us to hire a larger team, make the game earlier and better).
– To shape how the MMO will look like (not all design details are set in stone) with the help and feedback from our community of gamers.
– To generate more interest from our investors to invest additional money in to the MMO.
– And to let you save some money with the pre-sale discount price!

Single-player/standard multi-player (Miner Wars 2081) is now in pre-alpha stage and available for free download.

You can pre-order Miner Wars MMO at the Miner Wars’ official website store.

    It’s nice to hear they’re doing so good nowadays. These guys at Keen Software worked really hard to get to this point where they are now, I should know cause I had a few months of sleep deprivation when I worked on their game hehe, so I hope it all turns for the best for them.

      Yes, I did stumbled in a screenshot of a spaceship model that had your name under it.

      So, judging from the “few months of sleep deprivation” you mention it seems that you worked in more than one model after all :)

    I was ready to write these guys off about a year ago when I first jumped in with my money at the promise of the full game, and the mmo included. Then progress ground to a halt, and nothing more than a pretty tech demo seemed possible.

    After they received their funding they seem to back on track, and while it has been a long time since I invested, things are looking very good lately.

    I am glad I got in when I did, because they now seem they will be able to deliver what they promised.
