news-uw-premiumA Premium version of Underworld just got into the AppStore.

  • In-app purchase support
  • Map screen bug on 3.1 firmware fixed (incorrect positions)
  • Interface improvements (‘stock value’ in Money screen, dealers’ profiles in Recent Deals, etc)
  • Ability to choose how much stuff to dump in Stock controls

If you know what the Premium version is, just go download it. If you don’t, read on!

What is Premium version?

It’s a version of Underworld supporting in-app purchase mechanics, that was brought to the AppStore by 3.0 firmware earlier this summer.

Underworld has always been free, why paid now?

Underworld is still free-to-play and it will always be. However, currently existing UW Points distribution scheme is neither convenient nor intuitive; this is why we decided to switch to in-app purchase support.

Right now, only paid applications can feature in-app purchases. That is why Premium version is paid after all: $0.99 in US iTunes Store. For this minimum possible price, UW Premium grants you:

  • 4×1 hour of full police protection
  • 4 days protection from the loan shark
  • 1 Supply & Demand info request
  • 1 Carry Space 30% boost for 4 hours

All the stuff you get is placed into your Inventory (a new entity in Underworld screen) and is activated/used any time you need it.

I still have some UW Points left, what do I do?

No worries! If you still have UW Points left on your account, there is a subsection in Underworld screen, which allows you to spend them.
