What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Robocraft has been built with a dedicated community of Robocrafters from the very beginning. It's first release was in April 2013 and had no multiplayer and no combat. From that point and to now the game has grown to it's full MMO state and whilst we still call it a 'Live Alpha' you will find it a very polished and fully featured experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to remain in Early Access for at least the next 6 months after it's initial release on Steam. This way the Steam community can help to shape the game as the rest of the Robocraft community has so far.”

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

“When Clan Battles, Tournaments, Megabots (players as bosses in Boss Battles vs. other users), plus integration of Steam Leaderboards and Steam Achievements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We call it 'Early Alpha' but we expect you to find it as polished and fully featured as most 'Beta' releases.”

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

“No, Robocraft will always be Free-to-play and our prices won't change as a result of shifting from Early Access to a full release in future.”

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

“Freejam (the developer of Robocraft) has community in it's blood. The work Freejam is a combination of 'Free' and 'Jam' where 'Free' shows our dedication to keeping Robocraft always Free and 'Jam' stands for 'Jamming'. We like to think of Robocraft as a game that has been built from the ground up with the community and 'Jamming' with the community is ingrained in everything we do.”

Build robos, fight robos, learn, upgrade/modify, repeat.

Think garry's mod meets battlebots. For a free game the economy feels very fair. Lots of players online so match queue is short and games feel balanced. This game is great, and I wish it existed when I was a kid.

Imagination + Creation + Skill = best combination for a game

It is a very innovative game!
It is filled with creativity, startegy and fun!
My little brother loves LEGO, and so he built so many cool cars and planes with this game.
On the other hand, Robocraft lacks diversity-more levels are needed(there are only 2 levels) and there is no driver options.
Overall a very fun and addicting experience!

One of the best if not the best free to play game I have ever played. After the first couple hours of playing I bought som in game GC just to support the devs for making this great game. You can craft your own robot and earn points through battling to unlock and buy new tech/weapons/shields/armor and cubes to build your ultimate battle robot. A must play game for everyone considering its FREE. Also very well balanced and in no way pay to win, you can unlock and build almost anything without putting money in the game, the only thing money can really get you is early block unlocks and cosmetics like flags. But they then still have to purchase the blocks after unlocking with earned in game curreency which you cannot buy but only get by playing rounds. GREAT GAME EVERYONE SHOULD TRY IT AT LEAST ONCE!

This game is awesome, Perfect for people who wants to spread their amazing creativity and build giant robot killing machines. I think its a game for everyone to enjoy. You can build so many stuff in this game. From Tanks to Planes. Possibilities are endless. You can build a car... A car with guns that is, planes, hovercrafts and stuff like that. You can have something like a star wars blaster, but if you wan't to destroy more things. Get a freakin Plasma Cannon! Unless you prefer Death from Afar, then get out your Sniper rifles. You die, You lose. So get your mouse and keyboard ready, make sure your internet is good and your computer is not lagging too much. And prepare your adventure. It's kill or be killed.

I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with Robocraft, but whenever I re-discover it in my Steam Library it's like Christmas has come early. Even with over 100 hours of action, I'm still not bored. The game is constantly evolving, as you, the player do. As you rank up both your account and your robots, it brings a whole new element to the game, because you have more parts to play around with, and an increased block cap. With new parts released regularly, there's always something to build every time you log on. 10/10

This game is FUN! i tell ya, here is the thing, i am used to building ships and stuff to reck others, but this brought much more satisfaction than i thought. Heck yes its fun, and if you want to play with me, this is my username as well. i am Tier 10, but and at Tier 8. here is why, (newbies, remember what i say here) because i bought stuff, sold it, thinking it was good, right? WRONG! i was sent back due to lack of brains. so, thats just some advice, but keep cool, stick with what your good at, and do it. Its fun and i recomend it to all players, hope to cya out in the field! :D
