In one of those weird marketing decisions we may or may not come to understand later, Blue Potion Games has decided to launch a buy-to-play version of Echo of Soul. The company recently kicked off Early Access for the game on Steam and are charging $8.99 for access — although there’s a 40% discount at the moment.

At the moment, it’s a little difficult to tell what the logic regarding this release. One thing that we can assume based on the game’s Steam page is that the original developer, Nvius, is not involved. It also appears that Blue Potion has no intention of going free-to-play with their version as the EA FAQ states that “Early-Access Players will definitely have an advantage on pricing of the game.” (We can only assume the price will go up.)

There’s no real indication about what the differences between this game and the one already available as a F2P offering through Aeria are either, although regional restrictions could be a factor. Although, I’m sure we’ll find out as players buy their way into the Early Access.

    Phoenix is terrible. It’s only after Gamigo took over EoS and changed everything (and then shut it down and released Phoenix) that I and everyone I knew stopped playing. So far it looks like these guys are bringing back the older version with a lot of fixes to shit Aeria never listened to its userbase on. I loved the game before Gamigo took it. Here’s hoping this doesn’t go the same route.

    EoS is bloody awful. I tried to play it way back, and it was just so generic and boring (as most MMORPGs are, to be honest).
