What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Nienix has a lot of content and is in a very playable state. That said, there are many things left to do. We want to engage with the community to ensure that Nienix becomes the best possible multiplayer ARPG. Early access players will be compensated by a reduced price.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6-12 months.”

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

“There are many planned additional features for the full release:
  • A fourth act. When the fourth act is released, the level cap will be raised from 40 to 60.
  • A third campaign mode called "Continuum XL" that is unlocked after the game has been completed on Continuum mode. The difference between Continuum XL and Continuum is similar to the difference between Continuum and the regular campaign (higher difficulty and more content).
  • A hardcore mode, where death is permanent.
  • More events and quests, such as new dungeons, caves and rescue missions.
  • More Continuum Events and other end-game content.
  • A dedicated server option that can be run in headless mode.
  • A world editor that can be used to create custom worlds/maps.
  • Localization for languages other than English.
  • Polish of existing content, such as updated graphics and audio.
  • A new game mode called "Fleet Commander" which is a strategy game where the player can summon the different enemies that have been defeated in the campaign.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Nienix has a lot of content and is in a very playable state:
  • An open and infinite world where most content, such as events, enemies and items, are carefully procedurally created to create a fun experience.
  • A main quest that spans 10+ hours.
  • A "Hard Mode" called Continuum which can be accessed after completing the game. Continuum significantly increases the difficulty and contains a plethora of additional content.
  • 10 unique bosses placed over 3 acts.
  • ~300 enemy types that can be encountered.
  • ~400 item types that can be obtained (~150 ships, ~100 weapons, and ~150 engines and auxiliary items).
  • ~100 item modifications that can be used to radically modify the behavior and properties of items.
  • ~150 unique procedural event types, such as asteroids and stations.
  • In addition to online COOP mode, there are two PvP modes available - Teams and FFA.

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

“Early Access price is reduced. The full release will be 20-30% more expensive.”

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

“We use Steam and Discord to interact with the community. Feedback from the community will be used to improve the game. For example, regarding new features, bug reports and balance adjustments.”
