Q-Games announced today that the paid access version of The Tomorrow Children will be released on September 6 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4. The free-to-play version will then follow “in the coming months.”
To gain access to The Tomorrow Children beginning on September 6, you’ll need to purchase the $19.99 Founders Pack, which includes paid DLC items, 1000 Freeman Dollars (the in-game currency used to buy Black Market items), and bonus content that gives you a “big running start.” Founders Pack owners, as well as those invited by Founders to play the game early, will also be able to buy additional Freedom Dollar packs from the PlayStation Store.
Here’s what’s included in the Founders Pack, which has more than $30 worth of content and five F2P invites for your friends:
- Bourgeoisie papers — This is your first step to becoming a resident of The Void. By earning the “rezidenty” status, player’s will have the privilege to participate in creating structures and items to build your town, access to new tools, and the ability to build your very own house within the town. Also includes five F2P invitations to send to friends.
- Lv1 Arms License — Unlocks access to higher-tier weapons at the weapons dealer in town (purchase items with in-game currency earned by completing various labor tasks).
- Lv1 Tools License — Unlocks access to higher tier tools at the tool dealer in town (purchase items with in-game currency earned by completing various labor tasks).
- Eagle Corp. Jetpack — This high-end Black Market paid item will take you to new heights, allowing you to reach otherwise inaccessible areas on tops of “islands” to mine resources and find hidden items.
- Special costume — “Miner Gear” costume to customize your in-game “projection clone” character.
- Exclusive PSN avatar pack — This is a pack containing three exclusive PSN avatars limited to the Founders Pack.
- 1000 Freeman Dollars — Currency that can be used at the black market to purchase a variety of high-powered weapons, tools, and more, and can also be used as bribes to government officials for quick personal benefit. (This is separate from the in-game credits collected from the town’s City Hall after completing various labor tasks, which are used at the normal vendors in town.)
- Bourgeoisie Paper holders will also receive five invitations to send to their friends, granting them access to the F2P game client before full public release. Invited comrades can enjoy the F2P game for free, and upgrade their experience with the Founders Pack if they choose.
When the free-to-play version goes live in the future, the Founders Pack will be replaced by the Frontier Pack bundle, which will include DLC content and Freeman Dollars.
With Q-Games’ Dylan Cuthbert calling it a “unique combination of action, simulation, strategy, and social gaming that delivers an experience unlike anything else,” The Tomorrow Children sees you playing as projection clones who must work together to restore civilization to a world devastated by a failed science experiment. You’ll do this by gathering resources, building and customizing your town, building defenses, fighting off monsters, and more.
Will you be playing The Tomorrow Children next month?
