What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Empyrean Frontier has reached the point where the core game is playable and nearly all of the main systems are complete, however I still have more content to add, and likely some re-balancing as well. The procedural campaign in particular is relatively uncharted territory for an RTS game, and player feedback during Early Access will allow me to make changes based on that feedback in order to create a better, more engaging, and more replayable game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Estimated 2-6 months.”

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

“Some aspects of the final version will depend on player feedback during the early access process, however these are the main points that I intend to work on:
  • The final version will have a longer campaign with multiple stages as well as more missions and characters
  • The research system will be improved with unlockable unit upgrades
  • Additional skirmish maps
  • some additional units
  • some of the unit models will likely be redesigned or have improved graphics
  • additional sound/voice assets
  • Steam Achievements and Trading Cards

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In its current state, the game includes 2 fully playable factions, 2 variations on the traditional RTS skirmish mode, a 5 part tutorial, an additional Campaign tutorial, and the beginning stages of the procedural Campaign, which is still being developed.”

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

“The full version is planned to have a higher price than the Early Access version.”

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

“I see Early Access as a way to get the game in players' hands, build a community, and gather feedback. As the developer, I'll listen to community feedback on the forums and through other channels to improve the game by gauging which features and changes would make it the best experience possible, especially for our core audience.”
