What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game already has many hours of gameplay, and we want to have our community by our side while developing Great Houses of Calderia. From the start of the development, we have implemented ideas and expectations from our community to create a unique experience before full launch. Launching in Early Access allows us to continue to make the game YOU want to play!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Great Houses of Calderia will be in Early access for at least several months - this might change depending on the feedback of our community.”

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

“The game already has all the key features to allow you to rise in the ranks of Calderia and become a powerful family.
More elements will be developed towards the ends of Early Access. We will continue to develop the traditions feature, defining your family's and fiefdom's identity, rules and values.
Additional events will be written and implemented regularly, including community suggested content, thanks to our upcoming modding tool to create customised events. We will also adjust numerous mechanics and make balancing changes based on your feedback. It also relates to multiple ways to win the game. You'll start to notice hints of it before it's completely presented in the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access of the game has all the gameplay features listed on the Steam page. Please be aware that there might occasionally be bugs, unexpected behavior, or minor gameplay balance issues that will be fixed as they occur during development.”

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

“We are applying a discount during the Early access to reward our community. The final price of the game might be slightly higher as it will contain more content.”

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

“We will engage and discuss actively all the feedback on Steam and also on our Discord Server

“Nobody outside of Paradox has attempted to take the fundamentals of Crusader Kings' design and push in a different direction. It's a bold gambit from Resistance Games, and I'm fascinated to see how it all pans out.”
