Ritual, the developement team behind Sin and the forthcoming Sin Episodes, has given an interview to fan site Ritualistic
, discussing the pricing model for the games.
Sin Episodes will be short, 6-hour-ish nuggetts of gameplay which will, apparently, be self-contained stories within an overarching storyline.
One of the concerns was about price - how much would Ritual try and charge for these games? (After all, Max Payne 2 was a full-priced game that only had a little over 6 hours of gameplay...)
Thankfully, Ritual have said that the cost of the Episodes will be 'well below' $20, which we'd suggest means $12-13. However, this will only be for the basic package - as with the various Half-Life 2 deals, different versions of the game will contain different content. That means that us UK chaps will get a decent deal, with the native $:£ ratio.
Frankly, we're itching to get our hands on some code to see how this is shaping up. Once we've hax0red our way in to Ritual, we'll let you know. In the mean time, why not tell us what you think
about Sin Episodes?
