What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We really value our players’ opinions and want to make sure that our community have a say in how we continue to develop Blast Out, and Early Access is a great platform for these reasons.

Early Access will allow us to create a bigger and better Blast Out experience, and we want to invite the community to participate by giving us honest feedback, opinions and even ideas for what they would like to see in the game.

In the end, you, the players, are the ones who enable us to be game developers and do what we love, so why shouldn't you be able to help us develop our game in the right direction for you?”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to say exactly when Blast Out will leave Early Access since we want to make sure that the game is really tight and polished before we move into commercial launch. Our goal until then is to add more features, a lot of content and to improve the performance of the game. Our current plan for Blast Out is to release within 6 months.”

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

“The Early Access version delivers the core of Blast Out so that you can experience what the game is all about. Many features are still in development and will be implemented in future updates. A key aspect of the Early Access process is for us to be able to work together with you and discover what features you want and we can provide.

That being said, here's a list of some of our planned features and improvements:
  • Optimize the game for stability and performance.
  • Gameplay balance aiming for perfection.
  • Ranked game mode with leagues.
  • New arenas with unique mechanics.
  • Further expand on the ability pool.
  • Content production (cool new items and other customization options)
  • Improve social functions (chat, profiles).
  • Improve HUD and menus.
  • Better progression and reward systems

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently fully playable, with 34 available abilities, 3 unique deadly arenas and 3 different, fully customizable characters.

The game’s servers and backend supports function like a matchmaking (alone or in groups), chat, profile and an account progression system.

If you enjoy looking awesome while playing, the game also includes over 200 combinations of unlockable gear available simply from playing the game.”

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

“Different payment models and methods are currently being evaluated and a final decision has yet to be made. We do, however, want to reward the players who believe in the game and are willing to join us early on in this journey. In other words, whether it is in the form of a lower price tag or in some other way, Early Access-players will get some kind of benefit.”

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

“We are always looking for feedback and ideas through our community. As we've previously mentioned, we want the development of Blast Out to be a collaboration between developers and players. Particularly engaged players may also be given more direct means of communication to the developers and be integrated into the development process. The more you give the more we can give back!

We're also developing a partner program for Content Creators which you can read more about on our website.”

“[...] Tarhead have already done the hardest work in nailing the fundamentals down to create an Early Access product that’s visually and mechanically rich, with balanced gameplay that calls for hard-fought, nerve-shredding matches.”

“Dunking people and defeating them in combat has not felt this satisfying in a very long time.”

About This Game

Enter the world of Blast Out.

Blast Out is an arcade-style arena game that captures the raw joy and hilarity created when fast-paced reflexes meet over-the-top core gameplay mechanics. Master a wide range of abilities, learn to maneuver through an ever-changing environment and laugh as your opponents fall victim to your mind games.


Before you show off your amazing skills in the arena, you need to learn how to utilize Blast Out’s unique ability system. Players can modify any character’s set of abilities to play exactly how they want. The abilities in Blast Out are all about combos, so mastering the synergy between different abilities and their situational usefulness is the key to being unstoppable.


The arenas in Blast Out can be just as deadly as your opponents. The environment is filled with traps and hazards that will catch you by surprise if you lose focus for even a moment. Always be aware of your surroundings and use the arena to your advantage when engaging the enemy.


The core ingredient that makes the combat in Blast Out a blast, is the Knockback mechanic. Most abilities in Blast Out will send your opponents flying, preferably into that sea of lava that just appeared. The Knockback serves as a tool to quickly eliminate your foes and is vital to both utilize and avoid.


  • Multiple characters, with unique traits giving full control over your playstyle.
  • Deep character customization, with over 200+ combinations.
  • Awesome Loot, earn your gear and weapons through playing.
