The company that is going to revive the retro space shooters on PC, Robert Space Industries, have just hit 1 million community members and as a token of appreciation they have removed the payed incentives that being the ‘Alpha Access’ and the 5$ Module Passes. They posted on their website something like this,
”In honor of our newest Citizen (really, our thousands of new Citizens!) we would like to give something back to the entire community for all your incredible support. Starting today, we are eliminating ‘Alpha Access’ and the $5 module passes. Anyone who has pledged for a Star Citizen Package can now play today without worrying they won’t have access to some portion of the ‘Verse in the future. No Star Marine pass, no Alpha 2.0 pass… no additional payment needed for any module in the works, pre-release. Going forward, should we need to put out some sort of limited release it will be done through the PTU test server. All backers will have access to any live release, the moment it publishes.”
This means the company is going to treat everyone equally whether on were the one who were one of the very few initial backers or you are one of those who just signed up yesterday, everyone is now going to be treated equally with access to the same content. As for those who bought these access and passes before, they will be compensated in a manner the company believes is best.
