What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I understand that the game is far from ideal and therefore decided to put it in early access.
Early access will allow me to find out what the community is thinking about the game, what it would like to see in future updates and what problems they encounter directly in the game itself. So that by the end of the early access there is a game that will be fun and comfortable to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I can't guess exactly, I plan to make it by the end of 2019.”

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

“I am planning:
  • remake melee system
  • add new maps
  • add new weapons
  • add new skins
  • add vehicles
  • add various random events that will trigger during the match
  • add dedicated servers
  • maybe something else

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment the game is developing. There may be some minor errors in the game, which I will try to correct as they are discovered.
At the moment the game has: multiplayer, 4 maps, 4 game modes, different weapons and skins, character customization.”

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

“When the game comes out of early access, it’s likely that the price will slightly increase by 15-20 percent, since after the release I plan to launch several dedicated servers”

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

“The success of any multiplayer game depends on the activity of the community. I'll keep in touch with the Steam community and listen to opinions and suggestions to improve the game and constructive criticism.”

Defection update #1: 2 new maps, improved pictures, inviting friends and more

Hello. The following changes were made to the first Defection update:
- 2 new maps
Ice peak

Snow map for Conquest Mode


A simple map for the DM, TDM and Scavenger modes

- Added the ability to invite, or join friends on the server. This can be done through the Steam overlay (Shift Tab), or in the main menu of the game in the pop-up window with a list of friends, which is located in the lower left corner
- When creating a server, the ability to add bots is implemented, their number will depend on the number of players on the server
- In case of respawn, the player will now act invulnerability for 4 seconds, invulnerability does not protect against damage from meat grinders or falls from a height.
- Minor bugs fixed (new ones added)

P.S. Communicating with the community, many players are faced with desynchronization with the server (the interface disappears, a long response when changing equipment in the interface, etc.). Therefore, I decided that the next update of the game will be devoted to refactoring the code. I will correct the found bugs, I will simplify the technical side of the game modes. Perhaps, as it rethink the mode "Scavenger". To the maximum I will try to optimize the network code. In general, the game will be better, the game will be more fun.
At a rough estimate, the next update will be released in mid-May. After it, I will start updating melee, new skins and of course weapons.
