Account Management now available

20 Aug 2012

Today we are happy to announce a major step forward for Neocron 2. It sure took a while but we would to thank you for your patience, as well as thank everyone on the team who had a hand in getting this thing out the door. A special kudos goes to Zoltan and ArkHive, who did some of the heavy lifting below the surface. So... what has changed? Fire up the Neocron Launcher and find out! Access to Neocron is no longer limited to those with existing accounts from way-back. New players who want to check out Neocron 2 and returning Neocron 1 veterans are welcome to create a new account and join the community. At the same time, Neocron 2 remains completely free of charge with no fees whatsoever. This includes the free creation of a game account and free access to being able to play. If you have already played Neocron 2 in the past, but have lost/forgotten your password, we have included an easy procedure for you to recover your account(s). You too are able to use your accounts completely free of charge. Should you run into any issues, please report them in this thread - or for comments related to critical bugs not appropriate for public discussion, please send me a pm. With account creation back on its feet, we are very excited for the future. All the best, Neocron Support Team P.S. The question has been asked if players who already have access to free Neocron 2 accounts, are allowed to create additional, free game accounts. Right now, the answer to this is no, and while that may change in the future, we ask everyone to keep in mind the current situation we are in as a community and comply with our fair-use rules.

Probably using the money they ran away with after shutting down Black Prophecy.

EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

I'd rather not invest time into something that isn't earning any money to keep itself running or to product new content.

Actually Gamigo was pulling all the rope on black prophecy.

 

As far as Reakktor goes it's in its insolvency - it is no more, basically. The owner has very close contact with the Neocron community, and he funds the server out of pocket and has said he has no problem doing it.

 

Now, we have a developer team that is passionate and I believe they are volunteer - members who have been with the community and game for 5-10 years or so. It isn't costing too much to run, and it will continue being free for a time, how long we'll never know. Guarenteed to be a while, guarenteed to possibly run a cash shop. The owner is backing this all 100%.

 

Feel free to visit the forum to view recent patching, and to view what they are working on.

 

The game won't be going anywhere.

It is producing new content and fixes already via the COMMUNITY DEV TEAM. :)
