Masthead Studios has announced that both the Earthrise retail cost and the cost of the game's monthly subscription will be cut by 60% starting August 5, 2011. That brings the price of the game to $14.00 with a six month subscription costing only $8.33 per month.
“We decided to lower the game price based on the feedback, which we received from our players. We determined that a big flow of new customers would greatly improve the in-game economics and would also make Earthrise a lot more fun for both new and old members”, commented Atanas Atanasov, producer of Earthrise and director of Masthead Studios.
