This package includes 30 free days of CPU subscription trial. After the 30 days period is over, you can continue playing, but you will be limited to 10 CPU in the official MMO world regardless of your game level. This affects the official server only. The single-player mode and private servers are available without subscribing.
“Screeps is a fun game and has a unique angle to it. Using actual programming instead of a pseudo-language actually allows the players to focus on better coding habits and makes practice fun.”
8/10 – GameSkinny
“We use Screeps as a key part of our recruitment process at fleetster. Screeps is useful because it throws candidates into an unknown environment where the number of "right" solutions are very numerous.”
Note: everything below is about the official MMO world only. The single-player mode and unofficial private servers are available without subscribing.
This makes Screeps more like a hosting or cloud computing service rather than a traditional online game. We offer you server CPU time and fixed amount of memory that you can use as you wish (though it’s still preferable to use it in relation with the game!). Though a new player gets a quite low initial CPU limit, after upgrading your game level you can end up with your limit up to 300 ms per game tick which is quite a serious hosting asset.
As we designed the game, we were considering numerous options and finally came to a conclusion that justification of such expenses requires only one model: game time (or, in our case, CPU time) subscription. And note that we don’t offer multiple subscription options: the subscription cost is the same for all players. Thus we avoid creating game advantages for certain groups of players since all are provided with equal opportunities to use server resources.
If you don’t wish to use such resources on general terms, you can just confine yourself to purchasing a starter kit on Steam. A minimum 10 CPU amount will be reserved for you on the official MMO server, but it won’t grow following your game level. Such a mode is not suitable for a full competitive playing but is still enough for those who are fine with 2-3 game rooms in the game world to have some fun of the game.
Subscription Token is a special in-game item that allows its owner to activate 60 days of CPU subscription. You can buy a subscription token the same way as a regular CPU subscription, but these items are tradeable, you can sell them to another player or buy for game resources.
Hence, those players who want to share their resources with others can play Screeps as a free-to-play game! Subscription tokens trading is possible via the in-game market or Steam Community Market allowing to trade purchased tokens for real currency using your Steam Wallet.
