GAMEPLAYWHAT IS TBW'S PRICING MODEL? IS IT SUBSCRIPTION BASED? No, the game is not subscription based. There is nothing you subscribe to, you buy the game content for a season or special operation and then you own it. The pricing model more accurately reflects those of episodic games such as Telltales’ The Walking Dead, where packages of content are released regularly that build on the main story. Whether you continue to buy additional episodes or seasons when they are released is up to you. HOW DO “SEASONS” WORK? The game is broken up into sets of “missions”, which are discrete units of puzzles & narrative content. There is a specific number of missions per season and you advance through the game by completing these missions. Mission sets are released every two weeks during a season and allow for player actions to affect the storyline. WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU BUY A SEASON OF THE GAME? When you buy a 'live' season, you have bought all of the content for that season in one purchase. No monthly subscription fee, only regular releases of paid content. To give an example of the amount of content you can expect for each season, the contents of Season 1 included: ● 25 Missions ● 25 Hidden Puzzle Pieces (secret answers to puzzles) ● 5 Hidden Missions ● 5 Live Events If you buy a season that isn't live (that is, one that all the content has been previously released), you get all the same stuff minus the live events, because those take place in real time and can't be replicated.
