Concord pre-orders go live alongside official price reveal

Announced around this time last year with an incredibly vague teaser trailer, Sony’s multiplayer live-service first person shooter ‘Concord’ finally had its proper official introduction during last week’s State of Play. At the time, we had little-to-no idea on how the game will be monetised. Following a leak from PlayStation themselves, the console manufacturer has now officially given full details on Concord’s monetisation, post-launch support and more.

Making the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, Pam Piscitello – the Director of Marketing and Operations at Firewalk – said:

“From the very beginning, we wanted Concord to be a complete multiplayer-focused experience that combines engaging gameplay, rewarding progression, and a robust roster of characters, maps, and game modes right out of the gate, while also creating a platform for us to evolve and expand the game and universe over time.”

They continued, “When it launches in August, Concord will debut in a standard edition (available in both physical and digital versions for $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99 / ¥4,480 MSRP) that provides the full Concord experience, including all 16 playable Freegunners, 12 unique maps set on various worlds, and six distinct team-based game modes, which will expand shortly after launch with regular, post-launch updates for all players at no additional cost.”

Interestingly, and seemingly as a way to generate more buzz around the game, the team revealed that “Pre-ordering any edition of Concord will grant you five codes for our Beta Early Access weekend in July, allowing you to team up with your friends on PS5 and PC and take on rival crews across the galaxy. Stay tuned for more details about the Beta beta in the coming weeks, including the dates of Early Access and Open Beta, and more.”

In going for a mid-tier pricing strategy alongside the promise of all future content being free, Concord still has a chance to thrive upon its release – as long as players give it a chance. We will have to wait and see.
