Crimson Alliance to cost $15 for full class access, $10 for one character

Saturday, 27th August 2011 21:17 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Pricing for Crimson Alliance has been revealed, and it will run you $15 on XBLA if you want access to all three classes.

However, if you only want to play one class, a separate version of the game will be made available for $10. Not a bad idea actually.

“We wanted to provide more options when buying Crimson Alliance,” the game’s producer, Tom Potter, told Game Informer. “With the individual Class Packs, you experience the entire game as one class, at a lower price. So if you are the type of person that plays as a Wizard character in every game and no other, you have the option to buy just that character. On the other hand, if you want to play as all three characters, you have the All Class Pack option. Either way, you get the entire campaign and hours and hours of intense, action-RPG gameplay.”

Crimson Alliance is out in September 7.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    This is a VERY VERY VERY VERY BAD IDEA!!! This is the BEGINNING of the End of XBLA as we know it! This is the Beginning of the New Pricing Structure of FACEBOOK XBLA!!

    You have to have your head buried in the ground to think this is a good idea!!

    Check you internal memo’s people! They are looking to spam price you for every little thing you do when you play a game!

    If you haven’t played a Facebook Game, go play some. I currently play about 5 titles. While you are playing one of these games, they constantly bombard you with Spam during playing, “Pay REAL Money to HIRE new people!” “Pay REAL Money, to Unlock your LEVEL Cap!” Or how about this, “Pay REAL Money, to UNLOCK other CHARACTERS!”

    Folks if you think this “OK” then you might as well pick up a FORK and poke your eyes out and open your Wallet to the Wind!!!

    This is Nothing more then the Facebook Pricing for XBLA!!!!

    Play very little, Get Spammed Not Stop with Pop-Ups telling you, that you can pay to Unlock stuff, Play a little more, then more Pop-Ups telling you, that you can pay even MORE to unlock stuff, Play very little again, get more Spamming Pop-Ups telling you to pay REAL money and Unlock even more..IT NEVER ENDS!!

    And Folks, if you think this is just some fly by night companies your STUPID WRONG!!

    This is EA with Dragon Age: Legends! This is Sony and Insomniac with Infamous: Anarchy

    This is more then the pricing structure of DLC, this is rip you off every 5 minutes pricing structure!

    This game is the Beginning of the FaceBook Pricing Structure of XBLA!

    You Read it Here first!!!

    Gotta agree with Frosty.

    But I think it is enevitable, this is just way the future will look. We already do this on most games. Pay for 70% of the content at the regeister, and then fork over more cash for the “rest” of the game content in the form of DLC.

    Go play some retro games on the PS2, Dreamcast, PSone, etc, and ask yourself if this game were to be released today, what chnages would be made. And I kept coming back to the well, this wouldn’t be included w/o DLC. Extra modes, unlockable chars, unlockable stages, and a whole lot more.

    As it is, this game makes a bit of sense. But that is how many unsenable destinations are reached, one sensible step at a time.

    That being said, I can’t wait to buy this gameIw/all three chars).

    I actually learnt recently that the Stone Prisoner DLC was free on release, so Dragon Age: Origins is off the hook on the charge of character blackmail.

    The ingame advertising was still awful, but ultimately they just sold some fairly useless areas and quests with a bit of welfare gear in ‘em.

    Frost is right though, there’s no end in sight. Games publishers are pretty unique in being able to squeeze their customers as freely as they are today, perhaps only matched by Nintendo and all their white plastic.

    Rather than earn their money and increase their business, they’re looking for shortcuts, making products out of services that would otherwise be considered a natural compliment to a game purchase. Looking for charges to add, rather than making products that are worth charging for.

    Gotta disagree here. They’re not nickel and diming anything. A normal xbla game costs $15, they are giving you the option to pay less. How is that bad?
