What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have developed The Exiled in the open with our players since we started work nearly four years ago. Their feedback was instrumental in creating the game you are now seeing. For years we have been asked to launch The Exiled on Steam. Now we feel that we have created a version of the game that is ready to seek out the feedback of the greater Steam community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to leave Early Access when The Exiled has all the content and features necessary to sustain a healthy players base for the coming years. Even then we will continually update and improve the game of course. It is an MMO, after all.”

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

“This depends on your feedback throughout the Early Access period. We will focus on highly requested features that promise to make the game more engaging for all players without sacrificing its core focus on Open PvP. Just how much new content we can add depend on how The Exiled sells during Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with five weapon classes, three armor classes and medium-sized game worlds full of small PvE events, player-built settlements and Open PvP. There is still a lot of work to do on balancing and polish, but the core game is here and we enjoy it a lot.”

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

“We expect to participate in sales as much as other developers do on Steam. So the price of the game will fluctuate both in Early Access and after. There might later be the possibility for players to buy visual items (for example skins or avatars) directly through an in-game currency. We will always make sure that our early development supporters (like you) get a great deal on those. And we promise to NEVER SELL IN-GAME POWER. The Exiled is not Pay-to-Win and will never be.”

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

“We invite you to discuss the game's current state in our forums and to participate in the surveys that we will frequently send out - both about game balance but also about which features to add next.”

A Note from the Developers

Since going into Early Access we have listened to your feedback in the forums, via direct messages and in the game itself. As you all noticed, The Exiled did not live up to the expectations we had for it, leading to a very small players base and little player interaction.

Our efforts during the last months did not have a significant impact on this. Survival Mode was interesting but not good enough. So here is what has to happen:

1. We decided to remove the three-hour-time-window we introduced with Survival Mode. This did not lead to more engaging play sessions and it prevented you from playing - so it had to go.

2. We are extending the free trial to an unlimited duration for everybody. That means that you can play The Exiled for free as long as you want without having to pay for it - as long as you do not want the goodies in our Supporter Packs like multiple character slots or extra skins.

3. We will go back to the drawing board with our plans to re-set the game. Expect smaller bug fixes from us in the coming seasons but no major changes. We are still supporting the game, keeping the servers running and answering your support tickets but as long as we have no convincing plan for the future of the game we will not make any further major changes to it.

Yes, we have read multiple suggestions to "just get a publisher", to "just spend some money on marketing" or "just make the game free-to-play". We can assure you that if there was a "silver bullet" to make the game work out then we'd go that route in an instant. We have spent the last four years of our lives living and breathing The Exiled and we are fully aware of the options we have.

Thank you for supporting The Exiled so far - do not hesitate to share your feedback with us! We'll keep you posted.

Sincerely,
Alex and Sebi
Your The Exiled team

Why we're creating The Exiled

To make a long story short: We love PvP but we hate having to grind for it. Doesn't matter if that grind means clicking on rocks and trees, farming rats or watching our mining lasers overheat on some asteroid. We just want to log into the game, find a friend or two and compete with an army twice our size. We want a game that takes us seriously as adults and allows us to make our own diplomatic decisions instead of throwing us in a battleground with a bunch of randomly selected "friends" and "enemies". We want a game that is constantly changing, keeping us on our toes and forcing us to get better instead of showering us with meaningless rewards and digital bauble.

-

Meaningful PvP

  • Open PvP: Engage other players in combat anywhere, anytime.
  • Full loot: Carrying high-level equipment into combat means you risk losing it.
  • Player-run clans: No pre-built factions. You decide who you ally with.
  • City building and sieges: Build up your own towns - or raze those of your enemies.
-

Skill-based Combat

  • Full friendly fire: Make sure your fireballs hit the enemy and not your allies.
  • Line of sight: Hide behind a bush to ambush your enemies - and look behind you!
  • Footsteps: Every player leaves them behind - want to be a bounty hunter?
-

Free Character Development

  • 15 different class combinations: Have you ever played a Scythe-wielding mage?
  • 80+ combat abilities: Build a lightning wall, lay explosive traps or shoot a hail of arrows.
  • All equipment is player-crafted: You can tweak your gear to fit your play-style.

A Changing World in Conflict

The world of The Exiled is in a state of upheaval. A once peaceful and prosperous trading city turned from a multi-cultural melting pot into a stone cold dictatorship. You are on the receiving end of this societal change and together with hundreds of other misfits - criminals, political rebels and adventurers - you get exiled to a barren land -The Valley. Now you have to decide how to continue your life. Do you become a lone wanderer and live off the lands? Will you join the rebels and try to leave the valley by force? Or do you turn to your baser instincts and survive by robbing your fellow inmates?
