What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access allows us to work with the community while we are developing the game. It allows players to begin making maps, host their own competitions and make frag films while assisting with development costs.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Reflex will remain in early access as long as it takes to bring the game up to the standard both we and the community expect.”

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

“We will be actively updating the early access version right up until the full version ships.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is in Alpha. The game is fully playable in multiplayer with FFA/Duel/TDM/Race and CTF gamemodes, along with a bunch of mutators like Arena/Instagib/Big Head/Low Grav to enjoy as well.

It has a multiplayer map editor, replay editor, full character customization, stats, training and workshop support for all maps and addons. The next few things on the list are matchmaking and bots.”

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

“We haven't decided on any future price changes to Reflex but once you own the game, you own it forever. There will be no additional costs when the game is final and no maps or modes will ever be locked behind a paywall.”

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

“We'll be listening to all feedback given by the community to tweak gameplay, add features, and squash bugs. We'll be involving the community in the map development process, we'll be prioritising features based on community demand.”

Bug fixes:

Reflex 0.49.1 - Point Release

Hey Lads,
This update includes several bug fixes + optimisations. It also includes the addition of a time penalty for leaving matchmaking games early.
We've had some feedback recently with regards to people leaving matchmaking games early. This ruins the experience for the other player. To combat this we've added a time penalty if you don't play your game the whole way through. The forfeit option is still there and should be used if you concede defeat. If you forfeit there is no time penalty.

Matchmaking Improvements:

  • Can now only forfeit after > 2mins and losing by > +5points
  • If you quit a game in progress, you now incur a time penalty.
  • Leaving lobby no-longer removes you from MM queue
  • Disconnecting from server no-longer removes you from MM queue
  • If you disconnect from a MM game you were playing in, it will still remove you from MM queue
  • Added MM spinning icon next to "Quick Play" to help show that MM queue is still going
  • Timer says "Lobby" instead of "Warmup" when in lobby
  • Detailed match results now sent to masterserver on end of game
  • Added new Russian server in Novosibirsk
  • Added new EU server in Berlin

  • Added seconds to replay file name
  • Reduced suicide delay to 2 seconds (from 5) in race mode

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed default bind for cl_replay_marker to be 'M'
  • UI now only informs you that leaving will count as a loss in a MM game if you're actually playing
  • Fixed crash on command line +play blah.rep
  • Fixed rich presense text to be correct when in lobby as party
  • Fixed bug where party leaders would remain in queue when members left

  • Fixed spatial coherency optimisation between player steps. should greatly reduce CPU load on client+server.
