What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Medieval Engineers is an Early Access game, which means that it is released while under development but is already in a very playable state and contains a vast amount of features. The game is being improved on a regular basis through updates that add and polish features and content, optimizations and bug fixes.

Getting real feedback from our community is our topmost priority. Working on a game behind the veil isn’t fun and is altogether much less effective. Real people with real needs and real voices you can listen to are the heart of game development. We invite all players to give us their feedback and suggestions and help us create the best game possible!

Buy now, play on Steam and receive future updates.

Everything in the game is subject to change.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Medieval Engineers will remain in Early Access development until we gather enough feedback from the Community. We need to see how people play our game and what do they want us to focus on. Community feedback is expected and will direct our future decisions. We want to ensure that our players have the best experience possible and we will continue to develop the game in Early Access for as long as it is required in order to achieve it.”

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

“We are planning to release new updates on a regular basis. These updates will contain new features, optimizations and bug fixes. The same model has been used for our first Early Access title, Space Engineers (http://store.steampowered.com/app/244850), with great success. New additions to the game will be also depended on player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first release of Medieval Engineers will feature: Creative mode (unlimited resources, instant building, invulnerability, levitation), Steam Workshop (SDK + API), damage, and structural integrity. Multi-player and survival modes will come later. A full list of all the features can be found on our website: http://www.medievalengineers.com/features

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

“All players who decide to purchase the game in Early Access will receive future updates. The price of Medieval Engineers is going increase gradually for as long as it is under development and more features are being added.”

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

“Our studio has a very good reputation for developing Early Access titles and the way we involve our players in this process. Our first Early Access game, Space Engineers, is considered to be among the most successful Early Access projects on Steam. Getting real feedback from the Community is our topmost priority. Real people with real needs and real voices you can listen to are the heart of game development. There is a dedicated sub-forum where players can report bugs that they find in the game (http://forums.keenswh.com/?forum=415209). Players can also interact with the community and developers on our discord server https://discord.gg/0hIE7GirODUqhfIg

Announcing the Grand Melee!



Hello, Engineers!

We would like to tell you the tale of the evil Medieval Engineer who became king after his good brother slipped on a banana peel and broke his neck, banished his deceased brother’s children from the realm, doubled taxes across the land (hence the angry barbarians who are in a perpetual state of rebellion against the crown’s new taxes), and banned the mead machine from the Engineers break room.

Anyway, to celebrate the beginning of the evil Medieval Engineer king’s reign, he decided to organize a tournament! The grandest tournament the kingdom had ever seen! A tournament that…

Okay, so none of that actually happened. And for the record, the aforementioned tale of the evil Medieval Engineers king is not official Medieval Engineers lore.

Incorrect Notification About NVIDIA Drivers

Hi Engineers,

NVIDIA recently released a new major graphics driver version 411.63. This change of the major version number is causing notifications in Space Engineers and Medieval Engineers about out of date drivers. This notification is incorrect and can be safely ignored. We will patch the games soon to correct this problem.

Thanks for your understanding

“Medieval Engineers has set the bar for future sandbox games quite high.”

Deluxe Edition

Support the developers by getting bonus digital content. The Deluxe edition includes the standard Medieval Engineers Early Access game plus the game’s Digital Soundtrack and a special bonus banner layer!

About This Game

Medieval Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and the maintenance of architectural works and mechanical equipment using medieval technology. Players build cities, castles and fortifications; construct mechanical devices and engines; perform landscaping and underground mining. There is an entire planet to explore!

The game is inspired by real medieval technology and the way people built architectural works and mechanical equipment using medieval technology. Medieval Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and history and doesn't use any technologies that were not available in the 5th to 15th centuries.

Medieval Engineers concentrates on construction aspects, but can be played as an action game too. We expect players to avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications. Medieval Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.

Medieval Engineers is the second “engineering” game developed by Keen Software House. The first one is Space Engineers, which sold over 2 million copies in its first year and is still a bestseller.

Early Access Features

  • BUILDING WITH STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AND DESTRUCTION
    Medieval Engineers is all about building and the options are unlimited. Build anything from houses and castles to wagons and catapults.
  • FULLY INTERACTABLE WORLD
    Change, pick up and interact with everything includes plants, bushes, trees, animals, and the ground itself. Everything is interactable and destructible!
  • VOXEL TERRAFORMING
    Make the ground into any shape you want. Use a pickaxe to dig and mine in the ground or use the special voxel tools to reshape the land.
  • LIMITLESS EXPLORATION
    Play in a volumetric open world environment and explore a whole planet. Find valuable defensible areas or go to battle alongside your allies to take enemy lands and secure resources. The planet is full life including trees, plants, animals, and savage barbarian warriors.
  • INTEGRITY AND DESTRUCTION
    Build with structural integrity. Make buildings too tall and they will collapse! Design your structures carefully keeping in mind the differences between wood and stone. Use Structural Integrity View to find weak points in real-time. When the supports fail buildings come crashing down in glorious real-time destruction!

More to be added later

Performance Notes

Medieval Engineers is in development and undergoing frequent optimizations. The performance will get better.
