The Eurogamer supporter programme is changing

After we launched our supporter programme a couple of year-and-a-half in the past, we knew it’d take a while to get proper. That is why we refreshed the providing a number of months in the past and why we’re doing it once more, at present. For these of you who’ve been on the journey with us, thanks – your assist actually means quite a bit to us.

The most important change is we’re decreasing the worth and simplifying it. So whereas there was once two tiers, priced £3.99 and £5.99, now there’s just one. And for the brand new worth of £2.99/$2.99 a month, or £29.99/$29.99 a 12 months, you get every thing that is included and it is so simple as that.

Word that when you’re already a supporter and you’ve got paid for an annual membership, you may be refunded the distinction relying on how lengthy your subscription has left to run.

What’s included within the supporter programme is evolving barely, however don’t be concerned, there’s now extra reasonably than much less. And relaxation assured that our bread-and-butter Eurogamer providing – the video games protection we hope introduced you right here within the first place – will proceed unaffected, and we’ll preserve pushing it to make it nearly as good as it may be.

So what do you get for £2.99 a month? Nicely, one of many essential issues has all the time been giving folks a strategy to learn Eurogamer with out adverts, as a result of we all know you do not like them, so ad-free viewing stays a basic a part of what the supporter programme is about. It is not going anyplace.

Wes and I speak by the adjustments to the supporter progamme, including some extra element to what you are studying right here.

By way of content material, our weekly Recreation of the Week and 5 of the Finest sequence will proceed – FOTB is a pet venture of mine and I like that I have been capable of convey it again – however the e-newsletter might be going away. And there is one thing new. I am delighted to announce we’re including a month-to-month column to the supporter programme and that we have coaxed Eurogamer favorite Emma Kent again to write down it.

If you do not know, Emma labored right here for a couple of years, and what she was nice at was discovering uncommon issues to do in on-line video games after which writing all about them. I am speaking about hooking up a piano to sing Christmas carols to folks in Rust, for instance, or opening a trend boutique within the contested wasteland of Fallout 76. She was telling me not too long ago about a number of the different concepts she had and, let me inform you, they get higher and higher. Search for Emma’s first column within the final week of March.

I am additionally actually happy to announce we’ll be doing one other key giveaway for supporters, and we’ll be doing it tomorrow! That is Thursday, sixteenth March in case you are studying this sooner or later.

We’ll be giving freely PlayStation keys for the fantastic Hitman World of Assassination, which bundles the complete latest Hitman trilogy into one recreation and contains the brand new Freelancer mode. The keys are redeemable on PS4 and PS5, and can be found to anybody who has an annual Eurogamer membership, whether or not that is present or new. However bear in mind we have now a restricted quantity of keys so declare one fast.

And when you’re desirous about Hitman, take a look at the piece I printed the opposite day about how IO managed to utterly flip the Hitman sequence round. There is a podcast interview to go together with it, too.

Talking of podcasts – oh good segue, Bertie – we’re including a brand new one particularly for supporters. This one will have a look behind the scenes at Eurogamer and focus on in additional element the pondering behind the issues we do. It’s going to be month-to-month and have a rotating panel of people that work right here, and be hosted by me. And for example of what to anticipate, have a take heed to the podcast on this piece, discussing the relaunched supporter programme.

We’re additionally bringing again Ask Me Anythings (AMAs) for supporters, the place you may have an opportunity to ask questions concerning the work we do. These will happen dwell on the positioning and we’ll provide you with loads of heads-up time earlier than they do.

Oh and a fast reminder there is a Eurogamer Discord the place you may speak to us too. I am all the time there, waffling on, and different workers members drop in infrequently as effectively.

Along with all of that, supporters get reductions on Eurogamer merch and tickets to the EGX gaming reveals run by our guardian firm ReedPop. And you will proceed to get particular ‘supporter’ standing when commenting on Eurogamer articles.
