What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Told episodically, we begin with the prologue of the story, meant to set the stage for an incredible action RPG experience rooted in dynamic storytelling and combat. Early Access enables us to deliver an evolving game based on feedback and continuous improvement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in early access until Fall of 2021.”

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

“The full release of Brimhelm will tell the complete story of The Reaper of Brimhelm, along with the full region for exploration, new skills, items and equipment, and Deorum Council targets. The initial release of Early Access will only contain elements pertaining to the the prologue, the story of Eresh.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In Early Access, the player is able to engage in dynamic combat and reap the souls of Eresh’s targets. Specific souls are marked for reaping by the Deorum Council, sending The Reaper on hunts for his kin. Skills with a leveling system allow the player to shape Eresh as he gains enough strength to challenge more powerful deities. The player can explore the world and dungeons as Eresh to reap more souls and use them for armor or for experience. The chapter of Episode: Prologue will be available on launch, followed by updates with chapters two and three, all available in Early Access.”

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

“Early Access will be discounted to allow early players the opportunity to experience and help shape the game.”

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

“Feedback in the form of forum posts, posts on the NorthFire Studios website, and reviews will be carefully and regularly considered in the delivery of the the best possible innovative action RPG game.”
