What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to deliver the best possible version of Dysterra and make a game that players truly enjoy. In order to do that, it’s crucial for us to reflect on user feedback and make any necessary changes before an official release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our current plan is to have our full release ready in about 6 months to a year, fingers crossed.
The schedule may change, however, depending on user feedback received during early access.”

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

“We plan to add a lot more content both in the game, and through the lobby. New content will include equipment like guns and armor, new tools for crafting and base defense, new spaces added around the map, and new field bosses for players to challenge themselves with.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The key features of a survival game have all been implemented in our early access version. Dysterra supports both single and multiplayer (PvP, PvE), and we also offer custom servers. For now, we have one map with five landmarks. When players dominate landmarks, they will obtain a specific controller chip that can be used to either delay or accelerate the Terrafire eruption, our game’s version of a wipe.”

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

“We have no plans to change the price during early access, but may change it upon official release of the game. Just like with everything else related to the game, we’ll reflect user opinions in our decision making as much as possible.”

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

“We mainly communicate with players through our Steam community and our official Discord channel. We have already received and implemented a large number of player opinions through these channels. We are also planning on experimenting with alternative websites and systems (surveys, etc.) to gather and organize player sentiment. We are known by our community as a very active developer that listens to our players.”

“Dysterra is quite fun experience in single player mode, but it’s true value is the multiplayer. Highly enjoyable crafting and building enhance the survival aspect and bring new colors to battles.”

The ‘Cybernetics Augmented’ Update

’Cybernetics Augmented'

With great skills come great responsibilities. Survive until the server wipes to receive a ‘Perk’ and upgrade your character’s max possible stats for your next attempt at conquering the server! Perks increase your max level for a specific skill, and also unlock skills before you enter a server for the first time. A higher ranking at server wipe means a better chance of getting perks that unlock two or even up to 3 skills (each!) for your character.

We’ve also added ‘Uncapped’ servers starting in season 3. These servers are guaranteed to last at least 14 days, but if players choose to extend the server’s lifespan, it may never wipe! Feel free to experiment and take your time with a more casual play style on our uncapped servers, available in both PvP and PvE modes!

Newly added content

  • 'Perks' to super-power your skills and give you a headstart on new servers!
  • New ‘Uncapped’ PvE & PvP servers that let players extend their server's lifespan as long as they wish!
  • New area connected to the bunker, with new mobs, and new loot inside!
  • You can now exchange almost any item for reward points at any terrasite transmitter. We’ve even added transmitter-exclusive items.
  • Your base can now have an angled roof, or ramps inside your base instead of stairs.
  • Facility skills no longer affect other players on PvE servers!

About This Game

Our FPS Sci-fi survival crafting PvP game is set on a post-apocalyptic Earth where humanity has been forced to live off-planet on a giant satellite named Orbis. You have been sent down to Earth to gather a mineral called Terrasite that is now humanity’s main source of energy.

In Dysterra, you must gather materials, build your base, craft weapons and items, and gather terrasite to power your base. Work together with other players to build a giant stronghold, or go solo and hunt down other players to work your way to the top of the rankings!

Unique Modes:
- Single Player (offline)
- PvP Servers (online only)
- PvE Multiplayer Servers (online only)
- Custom Servers (online only)

Control When Wipes Occur!

By attacking and conquering facilities (monuments), you gain the ability to extend or shorten the life of your server. Each server has a hard minimum(14 days) and maximum lifespan (30 days) to give everyone a chance to enjoy the server.

Customize your character!

Choose your characters face, skin color, hair style, hair color, and also the design of your machine arm!

Mine materials to build your base!

Mine metal, stone, and terrasite to craft your base, new armor and weapons, and to become the strongest survivor on the server.

Level Up to Acquire New Skills and Abilities!

Almost every action in Dysterra contributes to your skill level. Each skill point you acquire can be used to obtain extra HP, make health items more effective, gain the ability to glide in mid-air, and more! Skill points are reset when the server wipes, so you can use a different strategy to level up each time you join a new server!

Explore Dangerous Underground Areas

Ararat has a multitude of hidden areas for you to explore. Find keys to unlock bunkers, portals, loot rooms, and more to challenge yourself against new and exciting enemies!
