What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Our game requires a community to come alive. What’s a Social Sandbox MMO without players? We’ve reached the stage where we need a live game to keep progressing.

Help decide the final shape of the game. The feedback from our Founders will guide us as we improve what we already have, and decide what to build next.

Support the project. We’ll reinvest the revenue from Early Access into making the game better and bigger.

By becoming a Founder, you are directly helping fulfill our vision of a living, breathing world you can inhabit for years to come. Thank you for your support!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With the game still heavily in development, a lot will actually depend on the feedback from our Founders! Pax Dei’s Early Access is scheduled to last until at least June 2025, possibly longer.”

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

“The foundations of Pax Dei are already in place, with a peaceful gameplay loop (gathering, crafting, building) inviting you to claim a home in a large, shared & persistent open world; and an adventure gameplay loop, with large areas to explore (PVE) and compete over (PVP).

During Early Access, we’ll expand the game in all directions. The first such update will be adding to the third core pillar of the game: the social gameplay loop, by introducing features such as markets and gold economy.

And it’s just the beginning! Our goal is to gather a large enough community to keep adding content and features to Pax Dei for years after the initial release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Pax Dei is still heavily in development and not yet feature-complete. We expect all aspects of the game will require balancing and polish.

Throughout Early Access, we plan to expand the game in terms of content and systems.
Major updates will require us to wipe the game - reset the world and/or the progression and have everybody start over.

We will do our best to keep such wipes as few and far between as possible. The last wipe will happen at the official release of the game.”

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

“The final business model and pricing are not defined yet, but our overall approach is similar to the classic MMORPGs subscription model.

After Early Access, Pax Dei will require a one-off initial purchase, giving access to the game & one or more plot(s) for a limited period of time; followed by a recurring fee for ongoing game access, which will vary based on the number of plots a player wishes to maintain.

By purchasing a Founder’s Pack now:
  • You get unlimited access to the game, along with the specified amount of plots, for the entire duration of Early Access (i.e., at least until June 2025).
  • You are already covering the initial purchase cost required at full-game release.
  • You get character slots and exclusive recipes that you will retain permanently.
  • Last but not least, you are directly supporting the project.

The Founder’s Pack you pick now doesn’t commit you to anything past Early Access. We will be transparent about our future pricing plans and provide more details as we approach the official release.”

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

“Our Discord server is the central hub for our community. As Founders, you’ll have access to specific channels to bring your suggestions and feedback directly to our team. This will help define the final shape of the game.

The world we’re making is a stage for the players to fill. We can’t wait to see all the stories that will emerge. Join us!”

WHAT WORLD WILL YOU MAKE?

Welcome to a vast, social sandbox MMO inspired by the legends of the medieval era. Here, myths are real, ghosts exist, and magic is unquestioned. In this immense, open-world playground, you choose the role you want to play. Immerse yourself along with thousands of other players as you explore the land, build your home, forge your reputation, and craft your own stories.



A PLACE TO CALL HOME

Travel the relative safety of the Heartlands and find the perfect plot of land on which to build your home. Protected by the grace of the Divine, your village is a safe harbor where your Clan can grow and prosper.
Everything in this world is produced by the players' hands and skills. Your village needs clothes, walls, food, flowers, and prayers. Your Clan, weapons, and armor. Others require tools, materials, or mysterious reagents. It’s easy to find your place and play your part in this breathing world.



EXPLORE UNCHARTED LANDS

Adventure awaits as you set foot into the Wilderness. Here, you’ll battle evil beings, uncover mysteries of an ancient and wondrous past, and square off against rival Clans as you struggle for power, position, and resources.
A word of warning: The further you journey from home, the stranger and more dangerous this world becomes. The glory, bounty, and secrets you bring back will enrich your entire Clan. How much challenge are you willing to accept? That’s for you to decide.



EVERYONE MATTERS

Skinning a basilisk, choosing between war and peace, picking flowers: it all matters. In a fully player-driven world, all play styles connect and complement each other. Join the community and be part of the stories about to take shape.

DISCOVER PAX DEI EARLY ACCESS

Pax Dei is currently in Early Access. The game is still heavily in development. Here is a snapshot of what’s already there for our Founders to enjoy.

  • Explore a vast world - We've recently doubled the size of the world, now offering five Provinces covering nearly 300km² (116 mi²). There are over twenty valleys to choose the perfect spot to inhabit.
  • Harvest and craft away - Everything in the game is made by players. Travel across different biomes, harvest dozens of resources, and unlock hundreds of recipes already available!
  • Build your home - Place your plot and claim a corner of the world to yourself. With dozens of building pieces to work with, the only limit to creating the home of your dreams is your imagination… and our structural integrity system.
  • United we stand - Form a Clan to pool resources, combine plots, build an entire village - or a massive fortress! You’ll need friends and allies to storm dungeons or clash with other Clans.
  • Craft your own role - With hundreds of items for mixing and matching and skills to master, you will have no lack of choices in deciding your own play style.
  • It is dangerous to go alone - Mysterious ruins and hidden dungeons filled with treasures await… guarded by merciless foes. Don’t wander away from home without a party and the proper equipment.
  • Welcome to fight club - Divine peace doesn’t extend to Lyonesse, our new province. Enter here at your own peril, if you’re willing to try out our first iteration on PVP. Here, death carries consequences.
  • More to come - Our team is hard at work fixing, polishing, and expanding the game. The next major update will focus on the social fabric and the economy.
