DKO is currently in its Founders Period. DKO is a living game and we intend to add significant features and content to the game over the coming months. Founders will help guide the direction of the game as we work closely with the community.

After the Founders Period ends, DKO may become free-to-play. Note that we expect the Founders Period to last several months at minimum, and that each Edition contains in-game content unlocks valued at more than the cost of the Edition.
