What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our biggest strength is our speedy development capabilities. There are a number of contents for Shadow Arena that are currently being tested internally right now. Therefore, we decided to enter Early Access so that we can receive suggestions and feedback from our players to create a well packaged product. During this period, we will do our best to communicate with our players to create a better game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It’s difficult to say at this point of development, yet our current goal is to officially launch within 2020.”

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

“First off, we plan to add more maps, game modes, and start the official first season at the official launch. However, we plan to release additional heroes during Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access will have one more hero added to the line-up. So, instead of just 9 heroes from Final Beta, Early Access will have 10. There are also plans to release more heroes in the near future.

There are currently six different game modes with Solo, Team, Dueling Grounds, Custom, Normal, and AI matches. The AI match was first released in Final Beta, but we have taken in a lot of feedback from our players and we plan to implement different difficulty levels and improve on this mode further.

Additionally, we plan to start the Beta Season where players’ tiers and rankings will be recorded from ranked matches. There will be rewards for players when the Beta Season ends (please note - this is not an officially ranked season).”

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

“Shadow Arena will be Free to Play for Early Access and for all foreseeable future releases.”

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

“We are planning to communicate with the Steam community and more, to reach as many of our players as possible. Please use the mode of communication that is most convenient for you to get your opinions heard: Steam Community, Discord, Shadow Arena Support, and others.

Additionally, there are plans to create more opportunity for our devs and players to have open discussion through special events. We will also continue to release new content and analyze our game data to adjust accordingly during the Early Access period to improve the contents and balance.”
