GDC 2014: FTL: Faster Than Light will cost £6.99/$9.99 when it comes out on iPad 'soon'

Speaking to Joystiq, Subset Games has revealed that the iPad version of FTL: Faster Than Light will cost $10, keeping it in line with the PC version of the game.

Using some maths wizardry, I reckon that should put it in the £6.99 / $9.99 pricing bracket on the App Store.

"Presumably the higher price point will make players a little bit more discerning on whether or not FTL will be something that they're interested in," Subset's Justin Ma told Joystiq at GDC.

"Which is funny, because we're very expensive on iPad with the same price that's extremely cheap on PC. It could even be the same users that have the different perception of what is a $10 game, just based on the system."

FTL should surface on the App Store "soon", and will be bundled together with the huge Advanced Edition update that'll be released for PC at the same time.
