Developer Mediatonic announced via live stream that Autumn boys will be free this June – but there is a caveat to the news. Autumn boys will be leaving the Steam store at that point, meaning new players will have to migrate to the Epic Games Store. After June 21, the game will no longer be purchasable on Valve’s store. However, previous owners will not be hit by the margin.
Autumn boys will no longer be downloadable for new players once it is discontinued on Steam. However, those who own the game will still receive the typical patches, seasons, and updates. But if you’re new and want to throw down the Blunderdome later that day, you’ll have to get the game on Epic’s store.
“PlayStation and Steam players already have copies of Autumn boys will continue to receive all the usual updates (such as new parts, patches, and new features) that you expect,” the announcement read. “However, new players won’t be able to download it anymore Autumn boys on Steam — if you’re new to it Autumn boys and want to play on PC, you can go to Epic Games Store and download the launcher there. Wherever you choose to play Autumn boys (including Steam), you’ll be able to launch and win across platforms. “
Here comes a new challenge
For the most part, that’s not a big deal. Those who already own the two-year-old game on Steam will still be able to launch it and play with anyone regardless of platform. With Autumn boysum, fall on the Epic Games Store, which also means there will be plenty of new beans to win the crown. And Autumn boys will be free, no more asking for the $19.99 USD price tag. Those who purchased the game before the game’s free release on June 21 will receive a Heritage Pack along with cosmetics.
Parts of the game are also getting a reboot and a fresh start with Season 1. It’s included in the Legacy Pack and will come with 100 levels of unlockable rewards, such as cosmetics. Given that the game will be free, that naturally means that premium currency has been introduced into the arena. Show-Bucks can be purchased and used to purchase a Season Pass, if you wish. Getting to level 100 on a new pass will also allow you to unlock the next pass. There will be another progression path if you don’t buy the Season Pass.
Mediatonic is offering more rewards for pre-registration to play Autumn boys on the Epic Games Store. Pre-registration milestones start at 500,000 subscribers, who will earn a “Melonhead” skin if they reach 2.5 million.
