What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We decided to launch the "endless horde mode" on Early Access, while we continue to add more gameplay features, and iterate on combat to refine game enemy AI (blocking, dodging, parry, etc) well as some cool special attacks and boss AI...Much more coming soon!

Early Access will allow players to engage in our physics-based combat mechanics before the entire game is complete. We are currently building a wealth of additional features and environments for players to explore.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to leave Early Access within 5 months.”

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

Shadow of Valhalla will allow players to venture through the echos of time, across ancient battlefields. Evil demons and wraiths will challenge players' skill and stamina, as they venture into the pits of hell!
  • More environments!
  • More weapons!
  • More enemies!
  • Dynamic boss battles!
  • Hidden Achievements!
  • Additional quests and RPG elements!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently includes “endless horde” mode, but we will be pushing updates with more environments, enemies, spells and quests as we continue development.”

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

“We do not plan to increase the price when we leave early access.”
