What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Scavengers is still in development for some of its core concepts. The game will continue to be in Early Access during this period until the development is completed.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

““Until it’s ready”. Since we released into Early Access in April 2021, we’ve had some really great feedback from our players about the game - what’s fun, what’s frustrating, and what’s confusing. We’re always heartened to hear from people that are as passionate about the game as we are.

We will continue to keep the community updated on our progress as we work towards crossing the finish line.

We’re not setting a target release date. Instead, our team is focused on making the best game possible. Until we reach that point, the game will stay in Early Access.”

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

“Our two focuses for Early Access are to continue expanding our progression and engagement systems - in addition to balancing and optimizing the game.

We've completed our server wipe, so all progression is yours... anything you unlock, you keep.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We’re making big changes to the core mode in Scavengers, and that’s why we need to focus our attention on getting it just right.

While we can’t give you specifics on what that entails, we can tell you right now that we’re striving to make matches feel less repetitive, and give you a more dynamic experience every time you hit the snow. We’ll be revealing more details about this in the weeks ahead.

We'll also be collecting more direct feedback and engagement through Game Nights (playing Scavengers with us), more ‘Dunk the Dev’ sessions, Discord Stage events (where you’ll get a chance to talk directly to us) and hopefully, future livestreams and AMAs.”

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

“Scavengers is, and always will be, a free-to-play title. Anyone can jump in at any time, free of charge. We offer cosmetic items, character unlocks, and Season Passes through the in-game Shop, but these are optional purchases.”

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

“Since our release into Early Access, we’ve been very focused on maintaining regular touchpoints with our community of passionate players. We post Dev updates on a monthly basis, along with in-game events and Discord Stage AMA’s.
