What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will give Phaseshift the opportunity to develop from valuable feedback with a passionate community. I want to invoke all of the nostalgia from past combat racing titles with a new modern twist, and I need your help!

Since going public in April 2021, the quality of the game has vastly improved, only thanks to fantastic suggestions from the community. As a solo developer, I lack the people power and creative resources from more established and larger teams. The more voices and ideas, the better!

I believe the effectiveness of Early Access comes from constant developer/gamer communication - something I am keen to upkeep as I enter into this period. Currently average version release times are around every two weeks (including a Steam Community Update post) with updates in Discord weekly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This all depends on you! Additional game modes, tracks and multiplayer are all planned to be added; how these take final form depend on insight and input from the community.

The plan is at least 6 months in Early Access - at most maybe a couple years. The intention is to keep adding content post full release too, as this is certainly a passion project.”

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

“The full version will contain:

  • Online multiplayer
  • Splitscreen multiplayer
  • Additional game modes (see below)
  • More bikes and customisable options
  • Full F1 style singleplayer campaign where you manage your team and race
  • More environments and track layouts
  • New abilities and weapons

Proposed Additional Game Modes
  • Takedown - Take out as many opponents in a race as you can in a time limit
  • Pickup - Instead of weapon cooldown timers, pickup ammo instead! Traditional pickup style mechanics offer a different style of play
  • Deathmatch - An arena style deathmatch option. Variants may include objectives to complete for extra points
  • Score - Complete feats like kills, finesse shots, rampage, stunts and more during a normal race to earn points. Higher finishing positions also confer a point score, the pilot who scores the most wins!

Game Mode Ideas
  • Capture the Flag - Team based game to capture the opponents flag while defending your own
  • Gauntlet - 1 vs 1 assault course under a time limit, dodge missiles, set traps, alter the environment and complete the objective before your opponent does!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Phaseshift's gameplay is completed. It's now in an asset creation period - developing new tracks, layouts, bikes, abilities, multiplayer and extending the single player campaign.

At present you can expect:
  • 12 tracks
  • 5 Championships to complete under the Early Access League
  • 4 game modes including race, team race, elimination and time trial
  • 16+ usable and unlockable weapons and abilities
  • 3 fully customisable bikes
  • 17 pilots to choose as your teammate
  • 9 AI teams to battle against
  • 25 Steam achievements to complete!

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

“Yes, the price of the game will increase as more features are added. I want to make sure early adopters get the best value.”

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

“The Phaseshift Discord is the main community hub for all feedback and suggestions. This allows me to keep track of everything that has been suggested in each channel, and talk to people about their ideas in an organised way.

I'm also happy to receive thoughts and ideas through the Steam Community board, though I may not be as responsive.”
