What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“IRON WORLD is a complex game made by a small team. It has been in development for two years before entering Early Access. We have concrete design and content goals but we need player feedback to see where these work out, where not and where the game needs to be improved. Early Access is the best way to make IRON WORLD the best it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to have the game finished in 2024. This date is an approximation and is subject to change depending on future circumstances.”

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

“We envision IRON WORLD as an expansive and ambitious game, so we still have a lot of work ahead of us. The list of features that we plan to implement.

- New weapons
- New perks
- New enemies
- New locations
- New game modes
- Enemies driving their own cars
- Character’s own settlement
- Complete main storyline”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes:

The Prologue
3 enemy types: raiders, turrets and dogs
14 weapons
14 car modules
13 perks
6 car-mounted weapons
60+ items
Global Map encounters

The world is potentially boundless!”

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

“Yes, the price will be gradually increased as we fill the game with new content and mechanics.”

About This Game

You have come from outer space to the devastated Earth. You are a man of the past, trapped in a rough and bleak future of the IRON WORLD. Can you survive?

A personal ride

Drive your own car. Carry your stuff in the trunk. Shoot away with your turret or crush your enemies under the wheels.

Random events

Random loot, random enemies, random events, random level generation. Each game will be different from the last.

Explore the world

Before you is a ruined world. You are free to go wherever you want. Towns, farms, mountains and the wasteland itself await you. Realistic layout of buildings and their interior allows for a more immersive CQB action. What's waiting around the corner? Create your own adventure.

Uncompromising fights

Dynamic and bloody battles. Move quickly, use cover, ambush your foes. Use grenades and boosters to survive and overwhelm even the deadliest of enemies.

Tactical AI

The enemies will react to your actions. They will detect you by noise, and will look for you after you've hidden from sight. Rest assured - they will find you, and they will surprise you.

Visual style

Carefully constructed atmosphere of devastation and ruin. Very detailed locations. Original artstyle.


Scavenge resources from every available source. Craft food, ammo and drugs. Good nutrition is key to survival.

Charismatic NPCs

Meet colorful NPCs as you explore. We put work into creating interesting, sarcastic, cynical characters.
