What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re a small team, with some members coming from indie game studios who strongly believe in the importance of direct dialog between the team and the community.
Our game has been in full development for more than two years now, so we already have a pretty solid base for play. We strongly believe that your input will help us to make the right decisions, and make BattleCore Arena the most fun, fair, and balanced competitive platformer shooter.

To do so, our approach was to first release a solid base version of the experience that we could build upon with player feedback, to optimize our experience and release an optimal version of the game for release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will rely on community feedback to improve the game and enrich during Early Access, so we don’t have a final date to communicate yet.

We already have plans to integrate new seasons with fresh content during the Early Access period and we will rely on community feedback to fine-tune – and maybe help create new seasons! We want players to be proud of the game before its final release.
We will keep you regularly updated on our progress.”

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

“BattleCore Arena is a free-to-play competitive platform shooter that will continue to evolve.
Our Early Access version is a solid base of the BattleCore Arena experience on which we hope to gather your feedback to balance our experience and make it more accessible, fair, and fun.
At launch, we plan for the game to include better communication features, new accessibility features, improvements to the player statistics, and, of course, a lot of new content such as arenas, equipment, game modes, and more! The game will be developed alongside community feedback to ensure we meet your needs, so we are counting on you!
All progression made in Early Access will be kept in the final version, and of course the game will keep expanding after release!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access is the base BattleCore Arena experience, which already includes a few maps, a selection of game modes and equipment, a secondary store, seasons, and loads of customization options.
During and after Early Access, new features, maps, modes, and equipment will be added to this base experience, in alignment with the community’s input and feedback.”

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

“BattleCore Arena is and will remain free to play during and after the Early Access. We might tweak some of our monetization mechanics for full release to follow player feedback.
Our Founders Packs, available for purchase on your store platforms, are exclusive to our Early Access phase.”

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

“We want this game to be developed with the community and for the community. We definitely have our own plans but we’re happy to have them evolve depending on what is important for our players.

We plan to communicate regularly with the community by publishing ongoing Steam News to update you about the various decisions we’ll make during the development of Early Access, as well as future updates and seasons. Also, don’t hesitate to join BattleCore Arena’s official Discord channel to interact with the team and share your feedback.
Everyone is welcome to participate and share feedback!”
