What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Population Zero’s development is near the finishing line. The game’s systems and variety of mechanics are in their proper places. It has a gripping story and a fascinating world. However, there are areas that still need more polish and attention. Early Access is a great tool that allows developers to give players full access not only to the game but also to the development process. Players’ feedback is an invaluable source of new ideas. Their insight will help us create a truly one-of-a-kind survival experience in the known Universe.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning the Early Access stage to last not less than 9 months.”

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

“We have got a lot of ideas for new regions, resources, apparel, game modes, and even new mechanics. Beyond that, we will be able to make dynamic balancing adjustments and real-time performance improvements. There are also plans for expanding the pool of languages so that players from different parts of the world can enjoy Population Zero in their mother tongue. The more interesting feature requests we will get from our users, the more additions we will be able to incorporate. We see Early Access as collaborative development where players become members of the team.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Population Zero Early Access build is much more than a playable concept. It is a fully-fledged game with seven distinct biomes, dozens of quests and numerous NPCs. We offer players to experience a new take on exploration-survival - our unique story-driven 7-day sessions with the ability to level up their accounts. Players will be able to gather various resources, craft awesome gear, engage in PvE and PvP battles, create unique characters using our elaborate Perk and Technology systems, build their own shelters and even fortresses to defend themselves from the dangers of the world.”

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

“The price of the full release will increase as it will have more content and features.”

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

“We are inviting all our players to leave their comments and share feedback on our official forums, social platforms, and Population Zero’s Discord channels. Every comment will be read, every voice will be heard. Our community managers will gather the most thoughtful and useful responses and forward them to specific teams where best ideas will be reviewed, fleshed out and put into the game.”
