Awesomenauts, the 2D side-scrolling MOBA, is going free-to-play on Steam on May 24th. A major update, dubbed ‘Awesomenauts 4.0: Going free to play May 24th’, has launched today with a completely overhauled progression system, a wide array of new customization options.
The transition to a free-to-play model has been in the works for several years, and the latest update builds on many of the changes that developer Ronimo Games already brought to Awesomenauts in the last year. From the introduction of the new AAA-level matchmaking system, the release of the live spectator mode, to the release of Steam Workshop integration and a level editor, it hs all lead to this.
During the ‘live beta’, which runs from today until May 24th, Ronimo be inviting new players into the game through Beta keys that grant early access to the game. These Beta keys will allow lucky players to access the free-to-play experience before it is live for everyone.
