Early Access-spel

Få omedelbar tillgång och börja spela; bli inblandad i detta spel medan det utvecklas.

Notera: Detta Early Access-spel kan komma att ändras avsevärt under utvecklingsprocessen. Om du inte känner för att spela spelet i sin nuvarande form, kan du kanske vänta tills spelet har kommit längre fram i utvecklingen. Läs vidare

Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

Varför Early Access?

“Early Access allows us to fund the development of the game as well as gain valuable feedback, particularly in multiplayer, from a community of active players. We have a good track record of delivering on Early Access / beta titles with our previous game Frozen Synapse.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are aiming for a late 2014 / early 2015 release on PC, Mac and Linux.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“A significant amount of polish and extra content is par for the course, but the most significant omission from the current build is the single player Season Mode. This will consist of a season played against a series of AI coaches each with their own distinctive personality.

Random events and challenges will occur during matches; you'll be able to build up your relationships with other teams and vote on league rule changes, as well as acquire new players.

We have a huge amount planned for this mode and will announce more details soon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently stable and fully functional in multiplayer, with single player AI skirmishes working well too. Gameplay is largely complete: the game just requires more content, the full single player Season Mode and polishing.

You'll get the following in the current build:

  • Free key for a friend, both for the Early Access version and the full version on release
  • Single player skirmishes with custom mode options
  • Multiplayer with two core game modes: Duplicate and Full Match
  • Team editor - customise your team names and stats
  • Playfield editor - create weird and wonderful pitches
  • Innovative commentary system that discusses how you play the game!
  • In-game tutorial
  • IRC chat and in-game messaging
  • Multiplayer ranking system
  • Scorchingly melodic in-game electronica soundtrack from nervous_testpilot!

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No - pricing will most likely remain the same.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will regularly check our forums and Steam community for bug reports and feature requests.”

Frozen Endzone is now Frozen Cortex!

22 Juli 2014

We've renamed the game and changed some elements of the aesthetic: it's still the same gameplay but we've made a few tweaks!

You can read about the decision here and I hope you like the new update which is hitting later today. Here's what's coming:

Here’s what’s in the update:

- OSX and Linux versions
- New pitch, ball and animations
- Completely overhauled AI including much faster performance and much more intelligent play
- Five new stadiums
- Significant performance improvements: frame rate should be 50-100% improved on most hardware
- Big loading time improvements

UI improvements:

- Throwing UI improved
- Intelligent interception-radius rendering
- indicator for whether a move location is “safe” or not
- Minor rules changes to reduce the need to “keep playing when the match is clearly over”; other gameplay improvements
- Quite a few new gameplay options to play around with in the Custom Game editor.
- Significantly updated in-game commentary text
- Other minor changes

Big update coming in July

17 Juni 2014

Greetings,

We will be pushing an update for Frozen Endzone at the end of July.

We’ve also been working heavily on single player content which isn’t ready to release yet. I’ll talk about that a bit in a moment but first, here’s what you can expect in the update…

Change List

- OSX and Linux builds

- Completely overhauled AI including much faster performance and much more intelligent play

- Significant performance improvements: frame rate should be 50-100% improved on most hardware

- Big loading time improvements

- Major aesthetic updates and improvements including...
- new ball
- many new animations
- new throws, new catches, new tackles
- several new stadiums
- other minor graphical improvements with a lot more to come

UI improvements:
- throwing UI improved
- intelligent interception-radius rendering
- indicator for whether a move location is "safe" or not

- Minor rules changes to reduce the need to “keep playing when the match is clearly over”; other gameplay improvements

- Quite a few new gameplay options to play around with in the Custom Game editor.

- Some commentary improvements.

- Other minor changes

Single Player

Alongside this update we have been working on the single player game, which we think is a fantastic combination of a traditional season mode but with a much tighter structure, character interaction and potential for storytelling.

The main mode will feature 7 distinct AI teams, all with their own coaches. Each coach has a response to the player, ranging from hatred to admiration, and their dialogue will change based on this and your performance in the league. You’ll be playing in the Global Cortex League (GCL) against these teams and also in a series of specially crafted contests with hugely variable rules and player behaviour.

You’ll earn incremental stat upgrades and be able to customise your team; there will also be storylines and intrigues which happen within the league that will have a bearing on your progress. The coaches will each have a different agenda and occasionally will propose league-wide votes on rule changes which you can influence.

There will also be other leagues and tournaments where you can coach, as well as an ongoing background story which will progress across different playthroughs with different teams

We’ve been working on this a lot behind-the-scenes for a while and making progress on it is very exciting. This kind of gameplay isn’t something that will work with incremental updates, so you’ll have to bear with us as we polish it up to the level where we’re happy to show it to you.

Thanks very much for the support on Endzone so far: this game means a lot to us and we’re really pushing to make it as good as humanly (and robotly) possible.

Please feel free to ask me any questions on Twitter: @mode7games

Fantastic follow up game from Mode7. Future sports football-esque simultaneous-turn based strategy game.

Right now the mechanics are great but my experience with the pre-Steam release was plagued by player inactivity. So far, on the first day on Steam, there are more people playing Frozen Endzone than I've ever seen since I pre-ordered it from their website, so the Steam release has certainly fixed the population issue.

The game is in REALLY good shape for an early access title, and you get two copies when you purchase it. Must buy for strategy fans or fans of Frozen Synapse!

So, tried the game out for an hour the night before. Learned the game, cool, cool. What really dragged me in, however, was playing it for 20 minutes the next morning. If you don't have much time, need to study etc, then this has to be the game for you, man. Been thinking about how to improve my play the whole day. Now, in between study sessions, I just throw around some challenges, play for 30 minutes, and I have my fix.

I've been playing since the Beta (Dec 2013) and I love this game. The game is like a simultaneous turn based rugby/football game similar to Blood Bowl with less blood and simultaneous turns instead of alternating. One of the game modes (handball) has been improved to become theFull Match game mode which makes it have a great feel of a rugby / football game. I like how they implemented the stats for the players and announcers (no voices for them yet though).

I think they'll be adding apperance customization but as of this time, there is none which is my only regret.

I suck at this game. I mean really, really suck. I've played the pants off Synapse but for whatever reason I just can't extract the same balance out of Endzone. This doesn't mean its not a good game. It is a fantastic game which I just so happen to suck at. Alot.
