Today Vogster Entertainment revealed Bleedout, an expansion coming for CrimeCraft "late this year." You may wonder what exactly that means considering it's already November, but that question only arises at first glance.
The reason for that wording is because the expansion is going to be episodic, with new content released weekly over the span of ten weeks, telling the story of civilization's collapse and the rise of the gangs seen in the game.
"The key to most MMOs these days, particularly free-to-play titles, is committing to a regular schedule of post-release content. People want exciting new stuff, and will stick around if they know more cool stuff is just around the corner," says Mike Kennedy, Senior Producer at Vogster Entertainment. "The MMO model offers the unique ability to continuously expand the brand while refreshing the audience with great new material. With an extended campaign of weekly episodes, we get to try something that hasn't been done before: create a weekly community 'water-cooler' event around fast-paced shooter action."
Kennedy is right in that regard, and Vogster looks to be delivering on that premise with Bleedout. It will be available for free to Deluxe and Premium CrimeCraft subscribers, or available for purchase for $2 USD per episode for free-to-play players.
Stay tuned for further details and news on Bleedout over the course of its episodic release.
