What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Dawn: Sniper's Way project has been in development for 5 years already, we have great plans for it. We see no limit in expanding our world and will not stop even after the game release, as it will be described in detail further.

At the moment the "PHOSPHORUS GAMES" team doesn’t have many people, much resources. The early access release will help us improving the game gradually based on the adequate suggestions by players. We would also have pleasure to expand the universe that is already populated by players, where something happens. We hope for your help.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The early access is necessary for us to decide on the further development of the project. For the early access period we will have to make the move forward to the full game, but we don’t want to drag this process out. We deem that entering the release stage is possible in several months or half a year. The game will be constantly updated with new features after the release as well.”

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

“With the increase of the team’s capabilities we will be introducing new gameplay, plot and graphics improvements. Our paramount task is the creation of full-fledged on-line play, setting up servers, relieving the system requirements, graphics optimization with RTX, and we also count on achieving (by joint efforts with you) the completely developed gameplay with traders, customizing weapons and bases. The map size and the number of available weapons will ever increase and be complemented.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the first stages of early access in the game, you will be accompanied by AI, then within a couple of months we will introduce a network mode with matching and anti-cheats.

We are pleased to introduce you to our game universe The Dawn: Sniper's Way. In early access, you will have access to a huge open world, weapons with customization, enemies in the form of AI soldiers. This build will include everything we currently have, we don't leave anything for later. We will try to do and show you everything that we have and will have.

In the game you will have the opportunity:

- Deal with your inventory;

- Engage in trade;

- Upgrade your character's charracteristics;

- Search for caches and loot.

Features of the game:

- A huge map of an abandoned city and suburban industrial facilities with forests and swamps, made on the Unreal Engine 4 engine;

- Pockets of radioactivity, the Geiger counter will warn you about them;

- High quality graphics with dynamic change of day;

- There will be many dangerous enemies on the map that you will need to eliminate, be careful.”

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

“We are going to increase the price gradually, adding new content and features. In the future 2 DLCs will be available: The Dawn: Digger's Way and The Dawn: Utilizer's Way. These add-ons will be based on completely different player classes and have completely different armament, gear and objectives. The price of each DLC will be about half the price of the base game.”

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

“The community of players is an important factor in the game development: with their help помощью we will be able to localize the issue if something goes wrong and resolve it in time. Therefore, the active participants will be constantly awarded with gameplay possibilities, in moderate quantities, of course.
