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

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A fully playable single player survival mode is available, the build is very stable and the basic features are all working (saving system,etc).”

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

“The current price will definitely increase once the full version is out.”
