What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to bring fast a community of people that can play and enjoy our game. And it is early acces because it is obviusly not a definitive version no campaign just core mechanichs and match making.

Our goals are, after this early acces release get an awesome campaign mode ingame that will shine, and updates with a lot of content and such.

We will continue the game for sure we cannot wait for adding new arenas and weapons and even gladiator classes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Probably 1-3 months.”

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

“We will probably add a multiplayer coop campaign, new combat features like shield bashes, spectator improved sounds, and a lot more special attacks and more deathblow reactions.

We have a discord server to involve people we also encourage people to make videos of the game in YOUTUBE they will probably be rewarded if they do so.

Gladiators discord: click to join.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have the main basic mechanichs done.
But in a future we will add more stuff like missions on campaigns and such.
Also a lot more weapons and such.

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

“Yes as we may use different strategies with the price. First for free, after we see that the game gets players and players we will make it non free to play game,. First probably a low price.But not too much.”

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

“Since it is a small game quick to download and play, we will give that idea to the people and surely they will be wanting to get involved, rather than a huge game and hard to play.”
