Crimson: Steam Pirates is available at midnight in your time zone on 9/1. For now, it's iPad only.

You can grab the first eight voyages and two multiplayer pass and play scenarios for free (which is a fine price). If you like what you see, you can pick up eight more voyages for $1.99 (which is also a fine price).

The game was developed by a small team in Redmond, WA. You can check out their website, and a whole mess of Crimson back story at the link below.

The World of Crimson

The team is led by Jordan Weisman, who you might know through his other games, Crimson: Skies, MechWarrior, and Shadowrun, or through his work in the "Why So Serious?" Batman campaign, NIN's Year Zero, or I Love Bees for Halo 2.

If you have any questions, we have an official FAQ up and running. We'll also drop back in when we can to answer any questions we haven't already covered.

Have fun! It's been really great to work with Harebrained and we hope you enjoy their game!

I play for fun and armory completion. :)

In the FAQ, it mentions Facebook login. Is the only type of account you can create through Facebook? Also, will it send notifications automatically on my wall?

Anyway, the game looks interesting, will probably get it on my iPad although it would be nice if it was for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

The stats integration is all through Facebook, but it doesn't make annoying updates to your wall. :)

The "Crimson: Steam Pirates Support" link in iTunes (and the iTunes web store) both lead to a non-existent page on bungie.net.

Actually, never mind.

It was a stupid question that I solved with common sense.

Additional clarification: all Facebook is used for is to identify you so we can find your stats for when you look them up on bungie.net. There is no integration with your Windows Live ID account or posting to your Facebook profile.

You stated that it is only on the ipad, For Now.
Can we expect to see it on other platforms?

Hello, I'm Mr AwesomePizza. I like pizza and I'm a man. Reasoning for the name. I like to listen to the classics of music, write poetry, play video games, and much much more. I'm always down for a nice chat, so please hit me up for some conversation.

What was the "I love Bees for Halo 2"? Did Jordan Weisman help with Halo 2?

Also, will the webteam be accepting Crimson themed avatars here? If so, when?

Join the Bungie Kids Podcast Group!

Listen to our podcast and listen to us talk about the latest Bungie news and Halo: Reach updates!

When I grow up, I want to be just like goofenhour.

When will we recieve a pirate translation feature for Bungie.net?

  • 08.31.2011 1:40 PM PDT

I wear the cheese, it does not wear me.

This account is now retired due to WLID changing. Webteam needs to fix that, seriously >.>

Erm, wouldn't that ad campaign be for The Dark Knight and not Batman Begins?

  • 08.31.2011 1:45 PM PDT

GGGGGGggggggggggggGGGG

Will this game be completely free or will there be premium features that require payment?(As in, bonus weapons or maps)

EDIT: Nevermind , I read the FAQ.

I'm not actually -blam!-, I just hate boobs.

I like to tape strawberries to my tits.

So, from what I understand, this is the first game to be released with the aid of Bungie Aerospace? Now, is this to say that all games published with the help of Aerospace are going to have their own forum?

  • 08.31.2011 3:18 PM PDT

I will own everyone in Halo: Reach

So about android....it will be available for every android device or will it need a minimum res?

  • 08.31.2011 3:39 PM PDT

What will likely happen is they will put the Crimson forums and any other Aerospace forums into an "Aerospace Forums" board. But I can't say for sure.

“Oh, it’s a little bit of everything, it’s the mountains, it’s the fog, it’s the news at six o’clock, it’s the death of my first dog, it’s the angels up above me, it’s the song that they don’t sing, It’s a little bit of everything.”

Something to add, Urk:
Q: Will Crimson be coming to any other platforms?
