Moscow studio Mundfish in the Discord channel of their post-apocalyptic action movie Atomic Heart explainedwhy I decided to make the PC version of the game exclusive to the VK Play platform in Russia and the CIS countries.
According to the developers, the main reason for this step was the desire of Mundfish “to ensure the launch of Atomic Heart in Russia and the CIS at the level that the game truly deserves.”
“Sale [Atomic Heart] on the VK Play platform will allow players to support developers without overpaying to intermediaries, and also without having to deal with currency conversion or registration of other payment systems,” Mundfish is sure.
Recall that the purchase of available games (many publishers have removed their projects from sale in the region) on Russian Steam games is associated with a number of restrictions (in particular, payment methods).
Atomic Heart will be exclusive to VK Play not only in Russia, but also in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
In the very near future (press service of VK Play He speaksthat this will happen today, September 8) Atomic Heart Steam pages in the countries listed above will no longer be available.
The release of Atomic Heart is expected this coming winter on PC (Steam, VK Play in the CIS), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. The exact release date should be announced soon – the developers are making the final touches.
