What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a long term vision and roadmap for BL Pro Surfing 2022. As surfers we are dedicated to our unique genre and we have been (and are) in this for the long haul. We feel that Early Access is the perfect platform for us to get the game into peoples hands with a core experience now and to also get important feedback sooner rather than later.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to officially release as soon as possible. We don't believe in endless early access cycles and hope to be in Early Access somewhere up to 3 months.”

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

“As the game is in Beta, there are not any planned large content drops prior to release. For Early Access our focus is on fixing bugs, fine tuning gameplay, and addressing any compatibility and performance issues. All of the locations and content within the game are feature complete. That said, there might be product and / or brand content updates throughout this period and then after release. By this we mean new boards, wetsuits and possibly new accessories. We aim to provide our community with a full and feature rich experience immediately, and then based on community feedback continue to develop more features after release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access build is in a Beta state and contains all of the features mentioned in the "About This" section of the store. Please refer to this area for details.

The games features have been tested via testers prior to coming to Early Access. We believe in giving people a solid play experience upfront. We do our absolute best to make sure there are no game breaking progression problems, however because the game is still in development it follows that it will not be without some issues. We plan on addressing any bugs on a regular basis (and by regular we mean at least once a fortnight). The community understand that creating a surfing sports game (+ a massive free surf component) is a ridiculously complex task and takes time to get right. Our team have worked hard to get to this point and with the help of the communities feedback we will continue to develop the game and improve it.

One example of this is our weather tool system. We've developed an intricate weather tool that impacts your gameplay (directly) in real-time. To implement this system properly our team spent multiple months working on this feature just to get it right. For example, one of the bugs we're fixing right now are little UI bugs in the tool itself that don't always provide the accurate information that we need it to provide the player. The underlying system works fine, but occasionally we'll have small break like this that requires a fix.”

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

“The price will increase moderately when we release.”

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

“We will be taking on feedback via the Steam Community, social media platforms and directly via email. We are an open book and we have always operated that way”

About This Game

Barton Lynch Pro Surfing 2022 is a sports game that pits you against the world’s best surfer’s at the most exotic locations on the planet. The expansive world tour features an in-depth leader-board and sports commentary, or if you prefer to free surf, just cruise the massive locations instead. Cutting edge graphics meets hardcore physics & beautifully brutal waves. Pump control uses the wave’s power so you can surf faster and unlock more moves. More speed = more moves! Pump, smash that lip, get sooo barreled and launch airs from waves that barrel, peak, break left, right, or just foam crumble. Customize your own character to within an inch of your life, or, play as some of today’s top pros including: Yago Dora, Clay Marzo, Nathan Florence, Soli Bailey, Mahina Maeda, Vahine Fierro, Felicity Palmateer, and of course the legendary world champion, coach and Pro Surfing commentator Barton Lynch.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN SURF CONDITIONS – MADE FOR YOU, BY YOU
Control the weather! Use your sick weather tool to directly impacts how you play. So create any surf conditions you want using the amazing weather tool that affects conditions in real-time. Big, sunny, low tide and glassy? You got it! Messy & small with a heavy cross-shore wind – just so you can practice your boosts? What? Yeah!

WORLD CHAMPS & UNDERGROUND HEAVYWEIGHTS
See how you compare to the big names on the tour, including Yago or Soli, or underground chargers in Nathan & Clay. Or what about taking on big wave chargers Vahine, Mahina or Felicity?

A MASSIVE CAREER MODE
Set out to conquer the world rankings in a singles career or via online leaderboards with friends. Manage your money, equipment, your health and your performance to reach the top. The Tour is a sporting challenge like no other, so leave no stone unturned as its going to test you

CUSTOMIZABLE CHARACTERS
The possibilities are massive – no seriously – huge. You can customize your entire look, but then on top of that all of your choices impact what happens in the game. With your surfer’s equipment, different wetsuits, rashies, board shorts, fins, board shapes including sizes, widths, bottom, tails, rails, noses – every item customizable and gameplay based. To boot, we feature some of the most recognized surf brands like Billabong, Quiksilver, Roxy, MR Surfboards, Lost, Pyzel, ONeil, Creatures Of Leisure, Futures Fins, and many more.

REAL LIFE ICONIC LOCATIONS
BL Pro Surfing locations are all real-world breaks designed to take you where you want to be. From Snapper, Mundaka, to Pipeline or the Box – we’ve got you covered. Should you rock off at Snapper or take your chances in the channel? Want to perfect that bottom to top backside snap before pulling in to get shacked at Hossegor? Now you can. Should you paddle big Jaws or Tow in? That’s a dilemma. But what about paddling from Main Break to the Box when it’s pumping? Yep, you can do that too.

GAME MODES
Tour Modes, Free Surf, Trick Challenges – endless hours of challenges and replay-ability. Sure, the games graphics might look a bit pretty, but this is a surfing experience with a true sense of gameplay depth. A set of progressive difficulties at each location helps build your skills and knowledge of the waves so you can take your real-time skills and start ripping it up in real life.

LEGIT SOUNDTRACK
Smoking Martha, Kilns, Oly Sherman, Wing Defence, Mesmeriser and Bad Pony headline the distinctive music that blends well with BL Pro Surfing’s worldwide vibe and fluid physics-based control mechanics.
