Xsyon drops subscription, becomes pure buy-to-play


If the subscription fee ever kept you away from the post-apocalyptic sandbox Xsyon, we’re happy to share with you that this is no longer a barrier to play. Yesterday the lead developer announced that he was dropping the subscription in favor of making the early access title¬†straight-up buy-to-play.

Reasons cited for the decision include changes in the industry, resistance to a sub-based early access title, and the fact that half of the players weren’t subscribing anyway. Xsyon: Prelude currently costs $30 on Steam.

The developer maintained his faith in subscriptions while being pragmatic about the move:¬†“Although I personally still favor the subscription model, it’s clearly turning away too many players at the moment. Without the subscription, new players will be more inclined to join and old players are welcome to return!”
