Keen Software house has decided to take the following steps in order to release a product that the community of 6DOF gamers deserve.

1) We will start offering our game at a promotion pricing level that will be at roughly 1/3 of the final product price

2) All the players that will buy the game at this promotion pricing will get a full game with no extra charge on the day of release

3) Our promotion pricing will only be applied to the PC version of the game. Xbox360 release will feature a full game with future upgrades.

Miner Wars is a 6DOF underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO.
