As you can see on our roadmap the latest update of SoulCraft will also feature a new location: The Great Wall of China. You may have noticed that this is a "Gold location" and may ask yourself: WTF is a Gold location? :)
We mean "Gold location" in 2 ways: First China is currently the most beautiful location in the game. We tried a slightly different art style and we really like it ..and hope you agree. So the first way to see it is: Gold locations have "gold standard" quality :)
The second way to explain what Gold locations are is this: As you know SoulCraft is a free2play game: You can play the game for free and only if you want to you can spend some real money to improve the gaming experience. To be honest: currently lots of people are playing the game and enjoying it but not enough people are spending real money yet. Harsh reality is that we need at least enough money to pay the team working on the game and we are not there yet ... and thats why we are experimenting with these Gold locations to improve monetization of the game. We simply hope that more people will buy Gold at least once to be able to play the new awesome China location.
So the rule for the Gold locations is: Buy Gold at least once and you become a "Gold member" for life. This allows you to play all "Gold content" including the new China location (and more Gold content coming up). It does not matter if you spent all your gold - you will still be able to access "Gold content" once you have become a "Gold member".
Of course this does not mean that all new cool stuff will be "Gold content". We will of course also add lots of new stuff to the "normal" game as well!
Thanks for your feedback and have fun playing the game!
