Hello fine folks!
As you may have read; Dirty Bomb is going free!
That means no more RADs, no more real money purchases. We’ve made these changes as a thank you to our players, both old and new, for supporting Dirty Bomb over its lifetime.
You can read the full update notes here but first, some highlights:
- Any RADs you have will be converted to Credits at a 1/20 exchange (rounded up)
- We’ve re-introduced some older content back to the store (like the terrible Dapper Doge Trinket…)
- We’ve enabled Steam Trading for all items
- we’ve upped the Credit earn rate from 19 per minute to 50 per minute
As I said, check out the full notes for all the details, but we also understand you’ll have some questions. We’ve tried to pre-empt some of them with the FAQ below, but if you have any other questions please pop them in this thread and I’ll try to hunt down some answers.
What happened to all my RADs?
Dirty Bomb going free means we’re also removing our premium currency RADs. If you were hoarding those RADs, don’t fret, all RADs have been converted into Credits at a 1 RAD = 20.84 Credits (rounded up to the nearest Credit). Spend those Credits wisely.
What’s happening to the servers after the update?
Dedicated servers will be running in active regions until the end of 2019. Beyond that, no decision has been made so far.
As you may have seen, Multiplay are closing down their community server hosting from February 28th, 2019. If you own a server or would like to find out more information please check out this FAQ on our helpdesk for more information.
Why am I getting so many Credits?
Credit earn rate has been increased across the board by nearly triple!
Why are there no bundles in the store?
To ensure we make Dirty Bomb free, all purchases that only used RADs have been removed from the game.
Where are the Steam DLC packs?
All Steam DLC packages have been removed.
Why didn’t you bring back ALL old content?
In short, due to technical limitations all old content couldn’t be brought back, saying this, we have brought back a bunch of old cases and trinkets for you to get your hands on!
When is my All Merc Pack refund happening?
The refunds will be happening by January 31st 2019. The refund will be refunded directly into your Steam Wallet.
Are there any other refunds?
Outside of the All Merc Pack, no. However, if you have recently made a purchase you may still be eligible for a Steam Refund and should reach out to Steam Support.
