April 3, 2013  |  Eador, Snowbird, Эадор  |  23 Comments

Following the success on getting recognized by the community on Steam Greenlight, Eador. Masters of the Broken World can now be pre-ordered on Steam!

Pre-ordering now you also receive a free copy of Eador. Genesis, the original game that inspired Masters of the Broken World.

Important notice:

  • Steam version of Eador. Genesis will only be available through Masters of the Broken World purchase. It’s not the most convenient option for many of you to have Genesis on their Steam account but unfortunately that was not our choice.
  • You’ll be able to try out the final beta build very soon regardless of pre-ordering the game.
