What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since Dragonspire is our first game, we want to make sure we’re on the right track. Early Access will involve an extended period of game development alongside the community, where we test new features and gather feedback from players to make sure Dragonspire is as awesome as it can be.

While in Early Access, you will be able to buy and play a work-in-progress version of Dragonspire, as well as optionally contribute to the game’s ongoing development. Each voice will be crucial in helping us to make informed choices about where to focus our time and resources. Once the game is far enough along, we will announce a release date, reset progress from Early Access, and compensate everyone for participating.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's difficult to say since we won't release a game that doesn't meet our studio's or community's expectations. We expect at least 6-12 months, maybe longer.”

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

“Early Access is a minimum viable version of the game, which will allow us to build features with the community. While we can't predict all the ways Dragonspire will evolve, some of the features we have planned include more Sagas, playable characters, game modes, and a seasonal progression system. That said, we're open to changing almost anything about the game, with a couple exceptions. We're committed to anime and multiplayer. Beyond that, anything is possible! When the game is performing well (based on industry-standard KPIs), our community is happy with the current state, and we've implemented all the planned features, we will move to an official release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access will include a work-in-progress version of Dragonspire, which supports online multiplayer. This version has been in active development since 2021, and will include the following features

  • Online cooperative gameplay from Saga One (first chapter of the game)
  • Blue version - Challenge Riptide, Water Dragon
  • Red version - Challenge Flamegore, Fire Dragon
  • Both versions occur on the same map with three biomes and regional bosses
  • 7 playable characters: Serena, Naomi, and Breeze to start. Unlock more by playing!
  • Normal, Hard, Expert, and Master Difficulties

IMPORTANT NOTE: We only have NA East servers at this time. We are actively working on setting up other regional servers to better accommodate players from around the world!

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

Dragonspire is planned to release as free-to-play after Early Access. Those who support the game during Early Access will receive special compensation, including in-game currency and limited founder items. We feel this is the best way to support a game with mobile cross-play and ongoing client-server costs from multiplayer. We will share more details about the compensation closer to release.”

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

“In addition to the Discussion section on Steam, we will be gathering feedback from players on our official Discord server, as well as social media, optional surveys, and through player data. You can participate in our development process by remaining active in-game and engaging with us on the listed discussion platforms. (Our lead is most active on Twitter!)”

Early Access Roadmap



Phase I - SAGAS. Play and unlock 7 characters, battle with 8 bosses in 4 difficulties, plus a first look at our roguelike drafting systems.

Phase II - PROGRESS. Help us build our progression systems, including new loot such as gear and pets. Experience a new map with unseen biomes, bosses, and more!

Phase III - DRAGONS. Challenge mini-raid versions of our dragons to earn weekly materials. We'll also add new content across all game modes, including a new daily challenge mode.

Phase IV - PVEVP. 3v3 real-time battles where the last team standing wins; our twist on the popular "Gambit" mode in Destiny 2. Includes roguelite drafting, boss fights, and more!

Phase V - SEASON 0. Simulate global release with our pre-season, where we will test balance, fix bugs, and build excitement across the anime games community. Join us on the journey ahead!

You probably noticed there are no dates for each test. That's because we don't want to rush development, and each testing phase may include several iterations before moving on. Participating in Early Access will provide you with an opportunity to help us make Dragonspire better, speaking directly with our developers here and on Discord (link below). Thanks for your support and understanding!

About This Game


Dragonspire is an anime action roguelike where you can take on ever-evolving challenges. Prepare to enter the world of Asteria, slash your way through hordes of mobs, collect legendary heroes, unlock new and incredible powers, challenge raid-like bosses, and so much more!

PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE REMOVED MULTIPLAYER FROM THIS VERSION OF THE GAME. IF WE ARE ABLE TO RESTORE IT IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL DO SO. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING!

Pick Your Hero

Choose your favorite playable character from a diverse arsenal of heroes! Breeze, Serena, and Naomi are just a few of the many heroes you will encounter (with more to come), each with their own unique personality, elemental affinity, and combat style.


Discover Powerful Crests

With more than 150 elemental crests, every run will introduce you to new destructive combinations. Discover overpowered combinations and progress even further! Depending on which crests you possess, you may even encounter special, unique crests...

Hatch Unique Companions

(Pending in a Future Version) Uncover and hatch miracle eggs during your adventures. What's inside? Billions of possible pets! Each pet will provide different benefits to your heroes, as well as accompany you on the road ahead! Who knows? Maybe you'll hatch a mythical pet...

Explore an Evolving World

Across the map, players will be able to explore numerous different regions. Each one will have unique mobs and bosses that will offer players new and exhilarating experiences. After defeating each region’s boss, players will then be able to take on the ultimate challenge.

Challenge Mighty Foes

Conquer the deepest reaches of Asteria where the enigmatic dragons reside. These beasts have a few tricks up their sleeves. Leave their trial victorious and receive magnificent rewards. Be careful though... One wrong move and you won't be coming back (oh, wait a moment... it's a roguelike, you will definitely be coming back).
