Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After 3 years we feel this game is something with enough variety, fun, quality, content, polish, stability and overall completion. It's far enough along for anyone who'd like to play the game before its final release date. We will be monitoring balance of all 1,300+ items for both versus, exploration and story sequences. We'll also be considering any and all feedback the community has for us!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The aim is no longer than a year and no shorter than a couple months.”

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

“In the final version, the Story will be complete. We'll be filling out the Quests and Worldmaps, and we'll attempt to be polishing everything that seems to need it the most to players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. The Pit People Early Access experience will include a sizeable chunk of the Story mission, plus access to several world maps (yes, there are more than one!), quests, Unfair Challenge against the AI, and Versus mode. The game can be experienced as a single player or two-player cooperative mode. Additionally, versus can be played with up to 4 people in 2v2. All multiplayer modes can be played locally or online!”

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

“Yep. When the game is completed, it will cost more than it does now. ORDER TODAY!”

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

“We've had a history of listening to our audience for the past 13 years, and we won't be stopping anytime soon! We've met with thousands of players over the years by going to tradeshows. During Early Access, we plan on checking all methods of contacting us and consider everything people have to tell us. We'll be adventuring and battling it out with people in the community as well!”

Update 5: Infinite Wisdom - Coming Soon!

In a couple of weeks or less, we’ll be releasing Pit People Update 5: Infinite Wisdom. The update will release in late September, so definitely check back in to get the full changelist when it goes out.




Here are just a few of the changes in the update: An entirely new challenging mode (Permadeath), a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations, streamer-friendly music option, and more!

With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that - they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have!


As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing.

See you all in the Pit!
