  • I reviewed the beta http://wp.me/p36QpK-qA , noticed in app payments were in there. Perhaps we will see freemium release. It seems a tainted pricing model recently but paid with further in-app payments just feels greedy!

    First beta was good but I can’t download the extra files for some reason in the second beta. Can’t wait for the full game though.

    Anyone else have trouble with the beta update they sent out ~yesterday? I followed instructions and uninstalled the previous version before installing this one, but the new one won’t load at all on my Nexus 7. I haven’t tried the update on my G-Nex to see if it has the same issue.

      I had some troubles at first, I think their secondary content server may have been overloaded, but I eventually got it to download both to my N7 and my D4.

  • Willard Potter

    Can’t wait. I already have this on PC through Steam, but i’m getting buying for my Nexus 7 too. Can anyone confirm that we won’t get shafted with maps this time? The first game still only has 4 maps on Android while iOS has at least double from what i’ve seen.

    Beta was great but somehow the betatesters emails were compromised and since then my email has been getting hit every day by spammers. Only thing they did was send an email saying how secure and safe they were and were sorry this happened.

    • Raven

      Ah, missed that apology, but that might explain why have been having so many more spams getting through on my GMail lately.

  • nick s

    beta was cool, more expansive then first game

  • Austin Warren

    Loving the beta. Can’t wait.

  • Been beta testing it for a few weeks, great game, helped to solve a huge game breaking bugs, any idea what it will cost?
