Broken Age Act 2 Pegged for April 28 Release
Act 2 of Double Fine’s crowdfunded adventure game Broken Age will be available on April 28 in North America and a day later in Europe, reports IGN.
On the same day, Broken Age will stop existing as a two-part game and will be repackaged as one whole unit priced at $24.99.
Owners of the first Act on PC will automatically be given Act 2 as a free download through Steam, and hence players will be able to continue their adventure which they had started out on last year.
Additionally, Broken Age will also release in its entirety on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on the same day. The game will launch with support for cross-buy, so buyers of either version will be entitled to a free copy of the other, and cross-save to help players save and resume progress on the go.
A retail release for the game was confirmed earlier this year to take place in spring, thanks to a new partnership between the developer and Nordic Games. This is not the first time that the two companies have joined forces for a retail release. Last year, they both teamed up for retail releases of Costume Quest, Stacking and Psychonauts.
The Kickstarter campaign for Broken Age began in 2012 where it attracted more than $3.3 million of its original $400,000 goal. A year later, Double Fine revealed plans to split the game in two episodes. The first part was released in January 2014 and which was received warmly.
