When the Deltarune Chapter 2 release date was announced, a price wasn’t set and people were uncertain if it would be free like the first chapter. Now that it is available, creator Toby Fox announced that it doesn’t cost any money to download and play. However, the full five chapter game will require people to pay to play it. Fox noted, “I don’t know the price yet, but it’s definitely going to cost more than Undertale.” For sake of reference, Undertale costs $9.99.
Fox offered an explanation for why no price was set for Deltarune Chapter 2 and it is free. In general, it is something of a kindness. Here’s the full explanation from the official site.
The world has been really tough for everybody recently.
