The latest Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade newsletter has been published. In it, Miguel Caron speaks to the recently announced Founder's Program for the game. He outlines three core standards and then goes on later in the letter to talk about the issue of transparency and trust.
The Founder’s Program as announced in the last Newsletter has 3 objectives:
First, you've been asking for a way to support us as we finally make the first MMO in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and we want to give you that.
Second, we want to get constant feedback from our founders both through discussion and focused testing alike.
Third, we want our founder's packs to offer real, lasting value to you all — more than a simple color switch — as a reward for showing your faith in us so far in advance of the game's launch.
To be clear, this is NOT Crowd Funding. Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is fully financed. Well, I should say that everything we have revealed publicly so far is fully financed, but the team and I have kept a few gems in our pockets for later and the founders programs might, with your help, move a few unannounced features that are currently planned for after launch.
The entire Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade letter is worth a read so be sure to check it out and let us know what you think.
