Yooka-Laylee will not be following in the footsteps of No Man’s Sky by pricing their games at $59.99. Instead Playtonic Games and Team17 will be pricing the game at $39.99.
When asked about the pricing, Playtonic Games Communications Director Andy Robinson stated..
“We want to reach as broad an audience as possible with Yooka-Laylee and hopefully help a brand new generation of gamers experience the open-world platforming genre for the first time. We’ve been able to develop our first game thanks to the amazing support of our 70,000 Kickstarter backers and although they’re getting the game for a much bigger discount, if possible we wanted to pass on a saving to those who missed the crowdfunding campaign too.”
Yooka-Laylee will release on April 11 on Switch, PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
