I thought it was online only? ::)

This is a problem with games like this. keeping servers running costs money, even if it is pay-to-play you need a certain number of subscriptions to make it cost effective. They don't seem to plan for when the official servers are shut down.

@Krule. That was RR:Driftopia. It servers closed sometime ago. Unbounded is not F2P game.
