What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is a new-genre game, a world-first experience, and our commitment to delivering on the promise of giving a career in gaming to our top players is paramount. For this reason, Early Access makes total sense for our game; as we grow, the game can react to learnings about this new genre and the mechanics that drive Play-To-Partner.

Every day we are gaining new insight into the types of in-game actions that we want to encourage. Early Access is as much a chance for us to perfect the balance as it is for players to learn about this game and the opportunity it affords gamers worldwide.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate using a 3-6 month early access period to tune the gameplay, economy, and growth mechanics on Twitch to the optimum settings.”

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

“The release version is expected to have a fully balanced economy and gameplay features, as well as a wealth of customization options for both players and player planets. This is anticipated to include features such as building permanent fortifications that will defend your planet while you're away, and long, multi-session in-game quests that will multiply the viewership awards on Twitch that you can earn.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the functionality in the About This section is in, and will be kept up to date.”

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

“Prices will not change when we leave early access.”

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

“The community is essential to development. We run regular scheduled sessions on our Discord which can be freely found at https://discord.gg/Hj93bBU.
We look to our community to give us feedback on the following (which we regularly act upon):
  • Combat balance changes
  • Player movement changes
  • Skill tree adjustments
  • Weapons and abilities suggestions
  • Planet design and travel mechanics

Since so many of our ambitious new mechanics pivot on community feedback, being in our Early Access means having the biggest impact on the release version of the game and all its mechanics. We will always keep our community up to date and involved in our plans. At it's core, our game is about bringing the opportunity to become a professional gamer to everyone around the world. This is the epitome of community gaming. Your voice WILL be heard!”

About This Game

NOTE: Steamcore is currently in maintenance during a strategic restructuring at November Games



Steamcore is an always-on, massive multiplayer PvPvE shooter, in which you play as a mercenary prospector trying to capture and collect resources on tiny planets, battling corrupted robots and other players to survive.

Git Gud, Go Pro in the World's First Play-To-Partner Game

Steamcore uses the Echelon System from November Games to reward high-level play with increased viewership on Twitch.tv.
The better you are at Steamcore, the more you grow on Twitch, it's that simple.
If you've ever fancied a career as a content creator or professional gamer, Play-To-Partner is your chance to make that happen. Simply launch the game and the accompanying rewards dashboard to start earning in-game rewards and seeing your Twitch channel viewers rise alongside your leaderboard position. We take care of everything, you just frag out and we handle the rest.

Play Style

Steamcore has endless replayability, as it is an always-on game that puts players on even-footing every respawn. Drop into action with zero queue times or matchmaking, and get into the action quickly. Players of other third person shooters, battle royales, or loot and shoot survival games will find the controls, aiming, and smooth animation has been fine-tuned to deliver a high-quality experience tailored towards great multiplayer combat with a huge skill cap.

Upgrade Weapons, Skills, and More

As you destroy robots and defeat other players, you earn skill points that can be spent on a skill tree, making each run a new choice for a different play-style. One run you could prioritize health and shield, giving you the advantage in drawn-out fights against high DPS weapons. Another run, spend all your skill points on your player Boiler, allowing for triple jump, dash boosts, and deploying invulnerability. The bottom line is the game gives YOU the choice of how you'd like to play, and rewards those who experiment with different weapons and abilities.

Game Loop

Players spawn on their home planet representing their Twitch channel, where they can create a base and construct reinforcements. Then, venture out into space and find another planet owned by another player where a battle has ensued for control of the Generator - a machine constructed over the Fyridium vent that periodically produces "Steamcores". These resources are vital to your success in the game. Collect as many as you can while surviving waves of corrupted robots, and other players.
Run them back to your home planet by warping home at the flag icon, and deposit the Steamcores in your home base. Doing so will reward you with points, and send you climbing up the leaderboard.

Content Updates

Each season, a new planet type will be released giving players new obstacles to overcome and barriers to use in combat. We also will release timed cosmetics that will be paired to the season, as well as change weapon loadouts that players can choose from in the game. An ever-shifting meta keeps the game fresh, and allows all manners of play style to succeed.

Twitch Integration

Servers passively integrate activity from the Twitch channel's of players who play Steamcore while streaming. This means that the chat can get involved with hidden commands, as well as change the course of the battle whenever major actions are taken on the site. Find out more about which actions are integrated by joining the playtests and seeing for yourself.
