Early Access-Spiel

Erhalten Sie sofortigen Zugang und bringen Sie sich in die Entwicklung des Spiels ein.

Was die Entwickler zu sagen haben:

Wozu Early Access?

“As a small team, Early Access is a great way for us to... well... get the game into your hands early! We'll be able to get important gameplay feedback to make sure it's as fun as it can be, and at the same time polish any rough edges, add much more content, and get the game ready for final launch!”

Wie lange wird dieses Spiel den "Early Access"-Status haben?

“It will be in Early Access until we're ready to release it. We're anticipating at least a few months.”

Wie soll sich die Vollversion von der Early Access-Version unterscheiden?

“The full version will have much more content, more skills, additional missions, new monsters, etc. We also expect to get further feedback during Early Access that will help us determine what you want to see in the final game.”

Was ist der derzeitige Stand der Early Access-Version?

“Intel HD Graphics - NOT SUPPORTED
Single-player mode is not yet available in Early Access, but will be added for the final launch.

Stability and bugs: There are some rough edges and the game may crash on occasion. However, it's already very playable thanks to early alpha testing, and we're absolutely looking for your feedback to make sure it's as good as it can be. We're very passionate and will be online pretty much 24/7 to gather any concerns or bug reports you have, in order to fix the problems and update the game as quickly as possible.

Gameplay content: There are several different game modes available already to keep you entertained. Most of the skills are done, and we're working on adding more throughout Early Access. You can advance through the full 25 ranks in each of the 8 playable classes, though there's still more work to be done on each class. If story is your thing, there are two primary mission storylines with four missions each, along with numerous bosses and lots of enemies. Most of the weapons and powerups have also been implemented. Needless to say, we feel there's already a lot of content to enjoy!

We really love this game and are/will do anything that's necessary for our Early Access and -- eventually -- the full launch to be a success.

If you have any questions, suggestions on bugs, please do report. :)

Currently in early access you can advance your character, play multiplayer game in sessions with all 8 classes and try to survive for 1h in random encounters.”

Wird das Spiel während und nach Early Access unterschiedlich viel kosten?

“We are offering some great discounts and bundles during Early Access, so by purchasing early you're definitely getting a great deal. The price will be higher at launch.”

Wie werden Sie versuchen, die Community in den Entwicklungsprozess mit einzubeziehen?

“We're looking for YOU to provide as much feedback and bug reports as you can! We want The Red Solstice to be one of the best co-op/multiplayer games on Steam, and we'll need YOUR help to get it there. Feel free to ask us any questions on the Steam forums, our Facebook page, Twitter or wherever else you want. We'll also schedule frequent play sessions and special events with the development team, so keep your eye out!”

The Red Solstice Version 2.0: Better Network, More Fun!

29. August

This patch is mostly about network optimization and bugfxes.

We have been analyzing our netcode and have managed to rewrite a number of packets, reducing the game's strain on network resources.

A number of additional potential optimizations have also been found, so more work on the netcode will probably be done in the following weeks

Meanwhile, minor gameplay changes include a hatchling HP buff by 500 HP. We know that players were complaining about game being too difficult as it is, and we certainly don't want to further increase overall difficulty, but we've found this particular late level monster dropping far too quickly to present any challenge.

As a counter balance, burrowing units regeneration has been reduced.

We've also determined that buffs from combat readiness were a bit too much, so they have been reduced by half. You will also notice that locked doors will now have red lights on them.

We have also been working on a new feature, ping. It still does not work properly but one nice side effect of the work done so far is that connections should now be established somewhat faster.

Among bug fixes it is worth noting that disarm tools can now be properly used by all players and not just the game host. Action bars for activating turrets, power stations etc. will also now properly reset.

The full list of changes are follows:

- fixed bug where clients couldn't disarm turrets due to network optimization changes that happened in previous version
- reduced amount pharmacology reduces the cooldown of skills to prevent insta-usage bug
- when dropping rockets it will drop stack of 3 instead of 2
- Demolition SES: Level 5 will enable detonator instead of place satchel.
- energizer from terminator will not overwrite powercell energizer duration
- fixed bug where weapon equalizer was usable from 30 meters instead of 4
- if action bar gets interrupted while activating turret/locker/power station, it will no longer be displayed
- fixed bug where readiness wasn't given in some cases
- fixed crash in science sector regarding to missions when located in specific region of that sector(far east)

- hatchling HP increased by 500 to make at least partially a challenge
- max stack of disarm tools changed from 10 to 4
- artillery mission can be added only once now
- readiness will increase energy regeneration by 0.5% per point instead of 1% per point

- doors that cannot be entered are marked RED now
- enabled entire storyline for EASY difficulty
- fixed Evac2 and Evac3 not having waypoint on minimap in north part of sector

- swapWeaponMode packet optimized
- worked on monster death packets
- lookMap packet optimized
- followMe packet optimized
- monsters can now change target minimally every 3 seconds unless a skill is used on them
- optimized monster setTarget packets so they're not sent if target is the same
- separated player to player damage packet (optimization)
- optimized network damage packets monster-player and player-monster by 50%
- sync packets are not reliable anymore (faster network)
- optimized experience packets
- followers will be synced now

- fixed crash related to when host is hold mouse over friendly marine who disconnects/quits the game
- fixed lobby crashes

- fixed bug in decal shader where white boxes where drawn (thanx to Intel and indie devs for helping!)
> this could potentially solve some other gfx problems

Dying has just become even more fun. Version 1.94 is out!

23. August

We made it to 1.94. We continue to do most of our work "beneath the hood", polishing the inner workings of our engine. Thanks to the help of the community reporting bugs and helping us test new stuff, we have managed to locate and fix a number of odd bits of code that were causing unexpected behavior or/and crashes.

We also managed to rework portions of our steam client (part of our engine that implements Steam features like stats, lobbies...), untangling it from parts of the network engine that was also calling steam functions. We are very happy with the results since our code is now much more streamlined and will allow us to implement new features and polish existing ones much faster.

Another thing we were concentrating on (and will continue to prioritize for the time being) is network packet optimization. We have identified and fixed a number of packets that were unnecessarily large, and/or being sent unnecessarily often, causing lag in certain situations. Game should be running a bit smoother now, specially on machines with slower connections.
We have included one notable new feature, combat readiness. It is our thinking that soldiers get more efficient on the battlefield as they continually face live engagements, and "loose their edge" a bit if they sit in barracks for too long. To simulate that fact, each successful engagement will grant your marine a small percentage of battle readiness (going up to 120% maximum) and each day spent without even the shortest engagement will reduce it a bit (up to 80% minimum). Readiness boosts energy recharge, with 80% giving it no bonus (meaning having it at 80% your regeneration stays as it was prior to patch) and each percent above 80 gives you 1% boost to energy recharge. New players (those with xp under 5000) will never have their readiness drop below 100. Of course, those numbers are not set in stone. This system will probably be further expanded as we gather some feedback from the players.

It is also worth noting that our artists did some work on the GUI, switching some temporary "placeholder buttons" with something a bit nicer and more user friendly. You can expect much more work on ironing out the GUI more properly once most of the features get implemented and GUI requirements stop changing so rapidly.

Other minor fixes include more information on mining cone damage being added, fixed specialty ranks (rank 10 now properly gets stats superior to rank 9), dead marines get shown on the map, leaders get an in game icon...
We continue working as hard as we are able and hope to be able to gave more goodies for you soon.

Now go and enjoy your game, marines, that's an order!

8 Player Coop-Survival Top Down Shooter.
Grab your Rifle and explosives and get ready Marine!
Its not easy to explain why it is awesome.. it simply is. You either get into it or you don't
And you won't really know until you tried it yourself!

The Red Solstice, similar story as with DotA 2, will definitly wake some old memories from the old Warcraft 3 days.
As it is Based upon Night Of The Dead AM and Night Of The Dead SO.

Geiles Game, erinnert an Warcraft 3 und Starcraft und hat einen Alien-Touch!

Was mir persönlich sehr gut gefällt: ohne Coop geht nix, die verschiedenen Arten zu feuern, das man leveln kann (während des Matches und übergreifend, defensive und offensive Spielweise werden unterstützt (Bunker bzw Missi-Modus od gemischt) UNDUNDUND

Was mir noch nicht gefällt: Von allem noch zu wenig (Level, Fähigkeiten, Ausrüstung usw..) aber das soll sich ja noch ändern

Entwickler sind im moment sehr bemüht, bringen Patch raus und lassen sich direkt danach ingame darauf ansprechen und sind für Feedback dankbar.

Das Game ist auch sehr oft im Angebot bei welchem sich vor allem das 4-Pack auszahlt...

Dear Mr. ♥♥♥♥♥,

this game is really great. I enjoy it very much, especially when I am playing with my friends.
They keep updating the game (fixing bugs fast and implementing content that the community
requested). There are still some netoworking problems, which cause players to jump aroung
a lot in game. But that will be fixed soon I think.
Buy it and have fun. The 4-Pack is the best choice, because then you have people to play with.

I'll skip the stuff about it beeing 8 player coop and sooo on and start talking about the stuff that might not be mentioned as often in short reviews:
The game offers multiple difficulties.. however the base difficulty is intended to be rather challenging for Players.
Which is definitly a good thing since it's all about improving your own skill and after many defeats rewarding yourself with your very first win... somewhat darksouls-esque..
So far there's a total of 8 classes and depending on what the player wishes to accomplish every class has one or more distinctive roles.(Tank, Healer, DmgDealer,Scout....)
List of the Classes:
Demolitioner,Medic, Hellfire(aka.Firebat), Marksman, Terminator, Recon, Assault, Heavy Support
There are different ranks and medals you can unlock. However, while the high ranked players get stat bonuses and unlock new skills as reward, it's still very balanced:
(stats of max Rank 25 player are probably 1.3-1.8 times as high as the stats of Rank 1 player)

You unlock boosters which are very similar to perks known from games like CoD4-6 increasing stats like ms, HP, Armor, XP... You can choose 3 Boosters per Game Session.
GameContentAmount >>> Randomness >>> Replayability:

Each Class has a variety of modules
(which if you pick them for a game each unlock 1 or multiple passive or active skills)

There is also a variety of weapons(which not only have different dmg stats but also different purposes e.g.
light weapons that reduce enemy armor vs. Heavy weapons with high Dmg output vs. explosive weapons vs. weapons with aoe dmg but limited range of usage or high ammo consumption/cooldown)
Some Weapons can use Multiple Ammotypes(HollowPoint vs Piercing)
Further one can also use the environment as weapon-> throwing explosive fuel Barrels or blowing up Toxic and Radioactive Canisters or Bombs planted by Insurgents.

Damage Types:
There is a number of Dmg Types
HollowPoint; Piercing; Fire; Toxic; Energy; Explosive;
each and every one has their pros and cons, since some Zombies
and Bosses have certain resistances towards specific Dmg Types

They are randomized to a somewhat high extend they may take place in different locations and feature different enemies and objectives e.g.: Defusing Bombs, stopping a Nuclear Meltdown, Hunting/Capturing Creatures and so on.

Besides the Main storyline theres a Number of additional gamemodes and modifiers you can mix them just the way you want it giving you control over difficulty and Playstyle of a GameSession:

-Bunkermode(You're being Supplied with resource and have to protect a beacon)

-Red Storm(When You're outside of buildings your armor gets depleted and you move slower unless the storm stops for a brief time giving you the chance to safely change location to another building)

-Swarm(Creatures Have less HP but there's a whole lot more of them coming towards you)

-Hardcore(Additional Random Spawns of Bosses and Special Creeps/Events)
Stuff I did not mention in this review: Random Environment Settings/Maps

All these factors provide a huge range of possibilities ensuring very high level of replayability. The Customisation options offer a level of control to the Gameplay, ultimatly providing a high level of balance resulting in hours of fun.

Ofcourse I am biased nevertheless everybody looking for a challenge or just for some coop action should give the game a try( you check out the official website for a demo version).. but watch out if you manage to survive the first hour you might already be hooked ;-)
