What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“War Saber is an ambitious title that relies heavily on precise physics interactions. Perfecting the game’s physics-based saber combat is my number one priority, and I feel this can only be achieved through extensive feedback from players. Early Access will allow the public to help craft the game’s core mechanics to make them as engaging as possible before story-based missions are developed around them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“War Saber will likely remain in early access for approximately 1-2 years.”

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

“The biggest difference between the Early Access and finished versions of the game will be the story-based content present in the full game. Players should not expect a full campaign along the lines of those found in AAA releases, but rather an expanding series of short missions with set objectives that revolve around a larger story. Multiplayer is also something that I would really like to incorporate into the finished product, but I can’t promise that it will be possible to implement considering the game’s precise physics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game is a physics-based saber combat sandbox with advanced enemy dismemberment. Players can fight and experiment across 3 maps and explore a main hub area. Player abilities include a telekinesis-like gravity manipulation ability, full enemy dismemberment and object slicing, accurate saber physics that allow the blade to pass through any object except for another blade, and a unique movement system that combines free locomotion with teleportation.”

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

“The game’s price will likely increase slightly after Early Access depending on the scope of the final version.”

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

“Community feedback will be collected via a public Trello board, Reddit, Steam, and Discord. The game’s public Trello will allow players to post, vote on, and monitor the progress of new features. Less formal suggestions and feedback from other sources will be carefully monitored and considered as well. Players will also be highly encouraged to submit bug reports as often as possible.

Developer diaries featuring footage of upcoming features and enhancements will be posted throughout the development of each major update. Developer updates will be made available via YouTube, Steam, and Reddit. These updates will allow the community to get an in-depth look at the game’s current development state and provide a general time frame for the release of new versions.”
