UPDATE: Buy to Play Takes the Prize in NA / EU - Dark and Light -

UPDATE: Earlier today, we reported conflicting information about the nature of the Dark & Light revenue model. Snail Games sources had indicated both P2P (subscription) and B2P (one-time purchase). In response, the Dark & Light Facebook page has been updated with the news that the game will indeed be Buy to Play.

Yesterday we posted a comment stating that Dark and Light's payment model would be Pay to Play, implying that it would require a recurring subscription fee in order to play.

This statement was made in error; Dark and Light will officially release as a Buy to Play game, meaning you will pay once for the game with no recurring subscription fee.

We apologize for the confusion - more information about Dark and Light's release plans will be released in the near future.


Conflicting information about the Dark & Light revenue model has emerged. has reported that Snail Games representatives tweeted that the game would be "p2p game" indicating that it would run via subscription. However, another representative named "Horsejoke" wrote in the Dark & Light Discord channel that "you can consider PC (version) B2P confirmed" seemingly indicating that it would require a one-time purchase.

We will keep you posted as the story develops. In the meantime, head to this forum thread to participate in the discussion.
