Remember at release, when we were told that the next "full-length" campaign would be released as free DLC to the original buyers?
Me too. What the ♥♥♥♥ happened to that?

Did you back this on kickstarter?

No. But it wasn't a kickstarter deal. They were in on it, yes, but they told the steam forums shortly after launch, when people were complaining about the lack of content, that they'd be adding a free, extra campaign "soon."

Source please, every piece of information i have seen points to "free for backers" and not free for everyone

Link? Because it's always been free to backers who paid more than $25.

check the dev blogs on the main game page. There was a couple posts to explain this. But ya, if not a backer, no free access to Berlin. My understanding was that certain backers were to get it, there was much confusion. Upshot, people got screwed.

No one got screwed, Chummers. Those who Kickstarted the game at a high enough pledge level to get the game, also get the Berlin expansion, which has been renamed to Dragonfall, as part of their (our) Kickstarter rewards.

There was also a period of Paypal "backing" of the game, and based on their pledge level, the same is true,

Later on, there was a pre-order period, also via Paypal. It was very clearly described and presented as a pre-order, and was not part of the earlier Kickstarter pledging. However, there were premium pre-order packages that also included the "Berlin DLC" (now called Dragonfall) that will get the expansion with their pre-order.

There was also a limited time offer of a collectors edition up for pre-order (EDIT: NOT) on Steam, that includes the Berlin DLC (Dragonfall expansion). The Collectors Edition was limited time only, and is NOT the "Deluxe" edition.

Most of these were offered at various times, not all at once, so at the time they were offered, there was no confusion about what was being offered, unless someone didn't pay attention to what they were reading, which is quite common 'round these parts. ^_^

And now I have some editing to do to the FAQ thread; didn't know about the limited-time Collector's Edition that was on Steam. That might've been what caused the confusion I've been seeing.

My bad, chummer. I missed a word in there. The Collectors Edition was NOT on Steam. Somehow editing as you write something, sometimes causes important words to magically disappear. Rassa-fraggin-!@#$ ^_^

Ahem , I think this is whats causing so many problems . This is from the harebrained schemes site . It is still there if you scroll back to old news twice . Also via the wayback machine at archive.org . I expect it to be pulled down .

HBS DID promise the berlin DLC to people who bought the game on steam , and promptly changed the tune shortly after relese .

Uh. They promised to make it free for PEOPLE WHO BACKED IT ON STEAM. Not bought it on steam. There is a difference between using steam greenlight to back a game, and just buying it from the steam store.

Reading comprehension for the win.

Image out of context. There were words surrounding the image, in a Kickstarter Backer update defining the difference between DRM enabled versions on Steam and non-DRM enabled versions of the game, specifically for Kickstarter Backers. This was never posted on Steam by the developers and was never intended for post-Kickstarter Steam buyers.

And no one ever "backed it on Steam" - they either pre-ordered it, or purchased it on Steam. It was never available for "backing" on Steam.


EDIT: You should also note, that the information in the image is outdated, as non-Steam, non-Kickstarter, DRM-free versions of the game are now available, as will be the Dragonfall expansion "DLC" for the DRM-free versions. ^_^
