Item Store Opens [UPDATED]

Item Store Opens [UPDATED] - Fallen Earth -

Icarus Studios has entered the RMT fray with the launch of their very own Item Store for their post-apocalyptic MMO, Fallen Earth.

The first two items available in the shop include a Kaibab Cur ($10 USD) pet which offers players companionship and an additional four storage slots, and a pair of Brass Goggles ($5 USD), which offer protection from piercing, fire, cold, and ballistic damage.

What is truly surprising about this announcement is the fact the store doesn't appear to be limited to "fluff" or convenience items, as the Brass Goggles are essentially the straight up purchase of gear.

Check out the item shop here.

What do you think of the new item shop? Let us know in the comments below!

[Thanks skinnys for the tip!]

UPDATE: The Fallen Earth team has responded to player concerns regarding the introduction of the new Item Store:

We just wanted to take a moment and address the concerns surrounding the new Fallen Earth Store.  Although we know there is a lot of controversy with the introduction of the store we wanted to share our vision of where we are taking this. We primarily view the store as the means to deliver to you, our players, role-playing and social items. The Kaibab Cur provides players with a unique pet with a 4 slot pack to help in your adventures in the Wasteland. The Brass Goggles, although they provide a very small boost to stats, are a promo item that we wanted to be able to offer to all who don’t have the opportunity to attend industry shows or participate in contests where these had been offered before. The Goggles are a level 7 item and offer very little benefit once you progress to higher levels in Fallen Earth.

In the near future we are planning on introducing name changes and even the ability to re-customize the look of your character via the store. We are also working on unique clothing items (not armor) that will help enhance RP events and social activities in the game. This does not mean that we are moving towards a free-to-play model nor do we plan on adding items that significantly provide players with an advantage in the game.

We greatly appreciate all of you and believe we have one of the best communities out there. We want to continue to hear your feedback and concerns. Thanks again for all of your support.
