What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our aim is to create an awesome game, and we need you as a player/expert to provide us with your thoughts and ideas. The Skies is currently in early alpha and we invite you to come and test the game so that we can continue our development together until we deliver an amazing product. The main features are already implemented, and we’re looking for your feedback to improve and polish the experience. We hope that Early Access will give us a better understanding of what you are looking for in our game, and how we can provide this to you. If you like our start and progress, we'll really appreciate your support, because as any developers we need the opportunities for going ahead and creating more and more of great content. :)
The Skies is a unique project in that it combines multiple game genres. It’s not a traditional MMORPG, but a combination of the FPS and RPG genre set in a multiplayer world with a player driven economy.
Due to the complexity and innovative nature of the game we decided that Early Access would be the best approach for us, as development without community involvement could lead to long and unproductive development times. We hope that this approach will help us to create an immersive and enjoyable universe.
So, Early Access is a great opportunity for us to involve the community and create a great game together. We want to create a fantastic first impression of our game and we promise that we will do everything possible to impress you and keep the game development moving in the right direction.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to have regular updates every 2-3 weeks until we move on to our beta phase at the end of 2016. The exact date of our beta launch will be confirmed once we are able to deliver a game you will love.”

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

“We plan to have regular updates every 2-3 weeks until we move on to our beta phase at the end of 2016. The exact date of our beta launch will be confirmed once we are able to deliver a game you will love.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has some bugs and is awaiting content additions in certain areas. Overall, all main features are in place and the core gameplay elements are there to be tested and improved upon.”

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

“The game will stay free-to-play with in-apps and premium accounts options. We will run special offers and promotions on a regular basis, all of which can be found on the Steam game page.”

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

“Working together with the community will be our main focus during the Early Access period we hope that with your support and ideas we can create the best game ever and give you the product that we envisioned. We plan to share our task management board with all our content plans, updates, ideas and more, and we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on the Steam forum:

“Eforb has announced the Closed Steam Early Access of their highly anticipated MMORPG The Skies on April 8th 2016. The Skies is a free-to-play first-person MMORPG blending in shooter elements and set in an open-world post-apocalyptic environment. Players will experience complete freedom and be able to forge their own path via a fully customizable role system and a non-linear quest system. Player choice will influence not only their own development and interactions, but also other players' representation of the game world.”

“Quickly getting the thumbs up on Steam Greenlight and generating chatter at IndieDb, The Skies seemed ready to claim its niche.”
http://www.mmorpg.com/mobile/features.cfm?from=home&read=10722&ismb=1

“Steam Greenlight is a great thing. It’s a system that gives independent video game developers a chance at having their game be released on Steam. With enough support from fans and the community, the game can be a part of the Steam library. One game that looks promising is The Skies, a post-apocalyptic MMORPG with a non-linear storyline from Ukrainian studio EFORB. The game is said to be a mix of DayZ and Fallout 3. As for the RPG side of things, as you’ll be able to create your own role and your own reality.”

Looking forward to seeing you in our early alpha soon...

About This Game

The Skies is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG with a non-linear storyline, in which you follow your own path or join other players to conquer the wasteland.
In this innovative sandbox you create your own adventure in a player driven economy your actions will result in the development of both the world and your character.
The game story takes place in the early 21st century, when solar activity increased dramatically. Within two weeks civilization collapsed, wiping out power sources, government and infrastructure. Humanity descended into darkness.
In 2150-2170, dust began to settle on the surface of the planet and the sunrays reappeared after 150 years of darkness.

Is mankind strong enough to restore what they've destroyed over the last century? What is life going to be like now?
