Bounty Hounds Online, the upcoming Sci-Fi MMOG by German XPEC Entertainment and InnoGames, will see a retail release as well: Today, publisher Lace Mamba Global announces that it will bring a boxed version into retail stores throughout the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries and further territories.
Bounty Hounds Online Pro will be released near to the actual online launch of the MMOG in fall 2011. The retail version, priced £9.99 / €9.99 (recommended retail price), will include access to exclusive ingame items and abilities as well as premium ingame currency worth £10 / €10, as well as the Bounty Hounds Online client, of course. More details on the exclusive items and abilities will be revealed soon.
Summed up, the value of the Pro Pack content totals higher than its actual retail price and benefits players who are new to Bounty Hounds Online, as well as already existing players.
Set in the 25th century, Bounty Hounds Online sends its players as mercenaries to Clear Sky Planet, mankind’s retreat after a huge galactic war against extra-terrestrial foes. As a member of one of four mercenary factions, their mission is to keep the fragile peace. In order to enter the battlefield, players choose one of five unique mercenary classes with different skills and weapons.
Shortly after its Open Beta started, Bounty Hounds Online has reached 41,000 registered players. On www.bountyhounds.com, players can download the game client and conquer the alien world of Clear Sky Planet. The German games publisher also presented the intro-video of the free-to-play-game.
The success of the English version is just the beginning. The German language release is planned for October – French, Polish and Spanish versions will soon follow. There will also be a Boxed version called “Bounty Hounds Online Pro” released in early fall. Moreover, the first major game expansion is already in development.
