What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think that Treadnauts is already a beautiful, polished game that's going to tank your breath away. For the most part, the game plays the way that it will on launch day! The next six months of Treadnauts dev is focused on bug fixes, console ports, and improvements suggested by our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The release version of Treadnauts is estimated to launch on PC, Mac, Linux and console by summer 2018.”

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

“In addition to bug fixes and community-focused improvements, we plan on adding a few small features to Treadnauts before our retail launch. These include more maps, more modes for online play, and maybe even a new character...”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“◦ Four playable zones, each with unique mechanics and physics objects
◦ Couch competitive mode for 2-4 local players
◦ Online multiplayer for single pilots or duos (Beta!)
◦ Single-player Target Test mode with medals and global leaderboards
◦ 20+ funky modifiers to shake things up!”

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

“Yes, we will offer a small discount while we are in early access. Tanks for believing in us!”

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

“In addition to our Steam group and pages, we have a friendly community on Discord! Our community is more important to us than anything. We're active in the chat every day talking Treadnauts, theorycrafting, and showing off what we're working on. Join and say hi!

Treadnauts v.0.55 Patch Notes

Treadnauts Patch Notes v.0.55

UPDATE 3/13/18: "The Bullet Time Update"

Calling competitive pilots: this update has crazy new tech that's sure to turn the meta on its head. You can now add backspin to bullets!

There's also a bunch of quality-of-life improvements that members of our community have requested, including new settings modifiers and support for rebinding keyboard controls.

After this update, the Treadnauts team is shifting gears into full console production. That means updates will slow down until our full launch this summer--think every few weeks to a month.

  • You can now curve your shots! Press left or right a moment before you fire a shot in the air, and your shell will curve for extreme mixup potential. "Add some English!"
  • Keyboard controls can now be rebound! If you don't like the default layout, this is the update for you. Go to the options menu to try it out!
  • Added four new modfiers: infinite jumps, a toggle for bullet bending, explosion splash damage, and point penalties for self-destructs.
  • Emotes can now be activated in the lobby, the winner podium screen, and while dead in an online game. There's also a separate control for activating emotes instead of the "honk" button. (RB on controller, E on keyboard by default.)
  • Tweaked the XP curve to prioritize giving players new maps earlier, and balanced XP rewards in general for Target Test and Versus games.
  • Added two new wrecking ball designs created by the community! Thanks to everyone who participated in the "Get Wreck't" competition!

  • The game will no longer crash on quit while a controller is connected (finally!)
  • Fixed an issue where the gamemode would auto-switch to a different mode, despite the player having intentionally picked one already
  • Fixed an issue where level ambience would no longer play in lobbies that weren't the Gold Room
  • Added support for several common controllers that previously didn't work, such as Logitech controllers
  • Fixed an issue where sea mines would sometimes explode infinitely online, causing massive lag and sound spam
  • Fixed a bug that caused visual issues when smoke particle trails overlapped
  • Fixed an issue where the floating screens in Wave District would sometimes spam their collision sounds
  • Fixed an issue where the player's name would show up while emoting online, occasionally in the wrong location
  • Fixed an exploit where the properties of a player's text on the leaderboards could be modified client-side
  • Fixed a visual bug that prevented clashes from destroying compacted snow
  • Fixed a visual bug caused by shooting a science ball with an afterlife target
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented lobby panel camo colors from updating
  • Improved online syncing of physics objects

Though we won't be pushing updates quite as frequently, we'll still be constantly active on our discord chatting with fans and playing games. Our heartfelt tanks go to YOU for making the Treadnauts community a beautiful place to fly.

See you soon, pilots!
