Launch version (V1.2) is live! More information to follow

Hey everyone!

It's Tina here from Brain and Nerd with some exciting news for you all this week: Predestination has officially launched as of V1.2 (available now)!

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
In brief, this means that the game is feature-complete, we're happy that the worst bugs are squished and feedback is good, and beta can be called completed. This doesn't mean that we're stopping development, far from it in fact. It means we're ready for the world to play the game and we don't want to hide behind the "Early Access" label while we continue to expand on the game, release patches, and work on free content updates and DLC.

We plan to deliver all of that throughout 2019, by which point we will commence work on the expansion we promised, hoping to deliver it in 2020 or 2021. We expect a long shelf life for Predestination and hope to deliver consistent content drops throughout that lifespan. The cadence for that is yet to be determined, but we'll keep you lot posted about all updates first, as ever.

The first major updates you can expect will be the next few episodic storyline missions (the first several will be in on launch day and we'll roll the rest out regularly), diplomacy voices, and more quality of life improvements and bugfixes.

WHY PUSH THE BUTTON NOW?
We have had a whirlwind few months of positive change and rapid development here at Brain and Nerd that has shifted our internal goalposts significantly. We were accepted into an NI game dev accelerator scheme in Belfast called the Pixel Mill, which has given us access to further resources and fantastic UK mentors who are an excellent source of support and advice. Predestination was shown on the BBC News website in a piece about the launch, and we were also astounded to recently win the NI Game Awards Game of the Year 2018 for the Predestination V1.0 build that took us into beta last year.

WHAT'S THE PLAN NOW?
Once we push the button, we're jumping straight into future updates including new story missions, races, and other content. We'll also be hotfixing like demons and planning DLC and free patches, the first major update of which will add more ships for the 3D ship designer and voicing for all races for the diplomacy system.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT
We want to thank all of you so very much for all the love, support, and belief you placed on our shoulders: This has been more than a marathon and we know that no Kickstarted and Early Access games go exactly to plan, but we're happy to say we made it! This would have been impossible without each and every one of you, you're the real driving force behind our wee studio and have given us the chance to get to where we are today.

About This Game

Predestination is a turn-based sci-fi 4X game set in the distant past of our own galaxy. Ships from countless races are flung back in time by a powerful hostile race known as the Revenants, and must now work to rebuild their empires and somehow stop the Revenants in the past. Explore the galaxy, colonise habitable worlds, meet alien races, and wage war.

Predestination blends the gameplay of classic titles like Master of Orion II with a narrative storyline and new game mechanics 4X fans have been waiting years to get their hands on: A 3D galaxy map, turn-based tactical fleet combat, advanced planetary exploration and colonisation gameplay, terraforming, a seamless 3D ship designer, and many other features.

Ongoing development plans


Predestination is now complete, with all major features implemented thanks to your support and feedback, but development doesn't stop here! We'll be adding regular free updates and new content throughout 2019 in additiont o our usual bugfixes and quality of life improvements. We'll release new challenge maps, further episodes singleplayer story campaign, bonus ships and artwork, and some content designed by our Kickstarter backers

Brain and Nerd is committed to supporting Predestination for as long as possible and we aim to begin working on DLC and expansions in 2020 with all new gameplay. We'll also be investigating adding multiplayer and modding tools in free updates after release. We have some very exciting plans for future content, such as space monsters and races with living ships, and constantly turn to our community for ideas. Stay with us and keep an eye on our development updates for more news as we post it.
