Developer S2 Games today announced that it will be foregoing traditional methods of publishing and distribution for Savage 2: A Tortured Soul, making it only available for purchase as an online download on the S2 Games Website. The triple-A title, which is the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Savage: The Battle for Newerth, will be available in the Fall of 2006 at a price of $29.99.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If the game was sold through retail stores, we would be forced to set a higher price point like the other triple-A titles out there,Ã¢â‚¬? said Marc DeForest, co-founder and lead designer, S2 Games. Ã¢â‚¬Å“By circumventing traditional publishing methods, we’re able to pass the savings directly on to the consumer as well as have much greater artistic license with our game.Ã¢â‚¬?
