Not in the UK just yet, will it be playable off line however? once you have the initial contracts? or do you need to be online to even play?

(I only ask as 3G signal can be iffy round my way).

It's 4:33 a.m. here, and I decide to check TA once more before I sleep. Turns out I'm not sleeping. This is some good shit; awesome that it's out already.

Hi guys, I'm Ben from Rodeo Games. Happy to answer your questions.

@metalcasket We decied to use IAP because we wanted people to play the game first before they had to make any decisions about buying. You download and play the full game playing missions and levelling your Hunters. Once they gain enough experience to hit level 3, you have the option of buying for $4.99.

@SteveWD40 I don't want to spoil the magic of how we get the contracts to you every day. However you do not need to be online to play, in fact you don't even need a 3G connection.
