What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After releasing Civil War: Battle of Petersburg we saw how much people care about our games. Bugs were found and quickly fixed, thanks to the involvement of the community. Engaging players early on will help us build a better game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will release early 2018.”

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

“We have since launching in Early Access added full save functionality, multiple difficulty levels and crushed many, many bugs. In its current stage, the Early Access version will not be drastically different from the final build. Trading cards will be added.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully functional. You can travel the wastes, slay mutants in underground battles, collect items and buy weapons with random powers. The final boss was added in the December update. Slaying the Oppressor of the Wastes is a lot of fun.
There might be some minimal glitches and we are balancing the difficulty.
We feel the game is very unique and now is the right time to let gamers immerse themselves into the world we created. We used everything we learned from Civil War:Battle of Petersburg to build a fun combat system. The community can help change the game for the better and we can see if we went into the right direction with our design decisions.”

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

“We will adjust the price according to how the market reacts to the game.”

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

“We welcome everyone to join our Steam Discussions board and give feedback there. We will read everything and make a list of priorities in what the community would like us to change or fix first.”
