Frequently Asked Questions
That is correct! Tribute Games ran a Kickstarter campaign last year to raise funds for development of Mercenary Kings, and to great success. Mercenary Kings was released via Steam's Early Access program on July 22nd, 2013 and will also be coming to the PlayStation 4 as announced at Sony's E3 press conference.
The Mercenary Kings Master Codex is an entirely separate project 100% operated and produced by Off Base Productions. Aside from providing Off Base with art assets, helping to get the word out, and approving the content we release (we wouldn’t want to accidentally reveal any content before its time), Tribute Games is not involved in running this Kickstarter.Last updated:
I’m a backer of the Tribute Games Kickstarter, and I’m supposed to get a digital art book. Does this campaign have to be successful in order to get my original reward?
Not at all! In the event we don’t reach our goal, Tribute’s backers will still receive a digital art book as planned.
If we’re funded, however, those backers will automatically be upgraded to a digital copy of the Mercenary Kings Master Codex!Last updated:
How are you going to ensure that the contents of the guide are going to reflect the final version of the game?
Guide accuracy is definitely a concern for us and for Tribute.
Mercenary Kings recently released on PC via Steam's Early Access program and is undergoing bug fixing, balance tweaks, and other updates. We're looking to release the guide around the PlayStation 4 release of Mercenary Kings, which should reflect all of the updates applied to the PC version when it's released.
Quality control is a crucial aspect of any strategy guide project, too. Aside from our internal QC team at Off Base, all of our work on the MKMC will need to be approved by Tribute as well. Together, our two camps will work together to ensure the printed guide is as accurate as possible.Last updated:
I see you've upgraded the guide to a hardcover. If I already backed the project, do I need to change my pledge to get the hardcover version?
Nope! Every single physical guide produced as a result of this Kickstarter will be a hardcover. All current backers are upgraded automatically!Last updated:
