Why Early Access?

“We want to utilize the advantages of allowing players to have early access to the game to gather reports, feedback, and suggestions that can benefit the player's experience. Through early access, we will be able to involve the community in the development of the Battle of Vukovar: Rain of Steel”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

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

“When the game reaches full release, it will include all the planned contents such as singleplayer, numerous map changes and additional missions among other things. It will have fewer bugs and issues because we will be focusing on fixing those during the early access stage. We plan to continue adding more content even after the full release of the game through updates and DLCs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable multiplayer game.

It includes 3 multiplayer modes, weapon system, fully dynamic weather system, achievements, and much more.”

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

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