What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

TL;DR: Eden Rising is an open world co-op action game that blends tower defense and survival genres to create a unique multiplayer experience. Early Access will let us adjust to how you and your friends play together. We will be adding lots more content, biomes and new features, including an endless/challenge mode. We’ll work closely with the community on our Discord channel to make the game even better!

With co-op at the core of Eden Rising, community feedback is essential for developing and updating the game. We're far enough along that players can get an idea of where we're going, but still early enough that they can have a say in the future. Every group of friends will have their own mix of playstyles and roles, and Early Access gives us the chance to adjust based on the needs of those groups when adding features and content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have a lot more in store for Eden Rising, and we plan to continue to grow and update the game consistently over the coming months, aiming for release at the end of 2018.”

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

“Over time the world of Eden Rising will grow larger. We plan to add a breadth of new content to continue the story, which will double the existing content. We’ll also have many more monster varieties, more challenges, and plenty of awesome craftable weapons, armor, and traps.

In addition to content, we also plan to add big features such as Character Customization, Resource Cultivation, an Expanded Item Upgrade system, and an endless/challenge siege mode. Our goal parallel to this is to increase tribe size to a total of 16.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is stable and can support up to 8 players on a server. There are 30+ hours of content available to play right now, as well as the initial story elements. We have 4 diverse biomes and Crucibles to explore and defend, lots of resources to collect, and a variety of monsters to encounter and defeat. The game has several weapon families, each with their own animation move-sets and playstyle.”

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

“Yes, the game's price at for Early Access will be lower. The price will be revised as the game evolves and content is added.”

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

“We believe that transparency in the development process and open communication are crucial. We will have a public Discord channel to report issues and post feedback. We will also post continual updates and dev diaries for the Community throughout the course of the game's development.

Hi Wardens!

These last weeks have been pretty crazy for the team. We are working hard on the next update -- our biggest one yet! You're very active, and you’ve sent us extremely valuable feedback. We want to thank you for your support and interest in the world of Eden. Our next update will be a whole new beginning for Eden Rising, and we have some exciting news for you today: the 'Game Changer' update will be out on October 18th! Two weeks from now!

A lot of features are coming with this update, and we hope you will enjoy the brand new experience! We are writing this post today to share the excitement and give you a first glance at the new features below:

Combat Updates

Our combat system is something you have raised as an issue, and we have heard you! Over the last months, the team has been working on many aspect of the combat system to improve it and make it more reactive.

With this update, your interactions will feel more fluent. We spent some time on dodging, combo attack movements, animations, and latency. Most notably in this update, you can break out of your attack animation after the initial windup -- to increase your reaction time when fighting monsters. Our combat system is something we want to push and continuously improve. With this update, you will already feel direct improvements. Please note, this is not the end for our combat system, as we are now working on decoupling the camera and controller support, which we believe are important factors to upgrade our combat system.

Brand New Tutorial and Onboarding Experience

After receiving community feedback, we have completely reworked our onboarding. The beginning of the game will quickly brief players through the controls in a beautifully revamped island. But most importantly, the new onboarding will interactively show players how the Tower Defense and Open World game loop mechanics fit together. After all, Eden Rising is a first of its kind!

Weapon Upgrading & Tech Trees

Eden Rising has brand new tech trees and item upgrading! Player progression is in the front lines of the upcoming update. Tech trees will help players make strategic decisions on which weapon, traps, and items to unlock. The new item upgrade has a brand new, dedicated interface that will let you delve deep into your favorite weapon and unlock powerful new versions, even more than before! If you need that Bident to kill a boss, the tech trees and upgrades will help you reach that goal!

New UI

In order to clarify some of Eden’s gameplay mechanics, and resurface some of the coolest features, we have spent time reworking the UI. And we haven’t just changed the look (though we do think it’s pretty nice!).

Elements needed to start a new siege will be better exposed, such as the new Crucible Tiers, as well as your goals and rewards.

Crucible Tiers & Improvements

Crucibles have been reworked to have “Tiers” of sieges. Completing a tier means you can unlock a whole new branch of that Crucible’s tech tree (new weapons! new items!) and use your Essence rewards to improve Crucible camps across the game. Improvements can give your Crucible more power, unlock trap or resource factories, or unlock Boost spots for your defenses.

Monster Revamp (New Monster Behaviors/Abilities)

Watch out for the Gorgon! Our monsters have brand new abilities, and you have to be smarter to defeat them. In order to improve the combat system, we have also spent some time working on windows of opportunity and monster rotation. Beware, their interactions will now be more reactive, and you’ll need to watch out for your chance to attack! Be tactical, and with time you will be able to master and defeat all of Eden’s fearless creatures.

Damage Feedback

As part of our combat improvements, we put some effort into the damage numbers and UI surrounding them. Now, when you take on that armored Hydra, you’ll know right away that the front is shielded -- damage numbers will appear smaller and greyed out, and an icon will show that damage was deflected. But flank the Hydra, and suddenly your damage -- and damage numbers! -- will greatly increase!

We’ve also added weak spots and weaknesses to many of our monsters. Those Archons (one of the seahorse monsters) are in for a surprise when you put down the new Laser Lance turret! Test out other special abilities, weapons, and turrets on monsters to find out what does the most damage!

Siege Revamp and Monster Formations

With this update, we have done a full siege revamp. From the onboarding to the Valley, all the way to the Shatter Causeway, all sieges have been rebalanced for better entertainment and challenge. You’ve played all the sieges in the Valley before? Give them one more shot -- the experience is completely different! Monsters can now spawn in a formation that moves through the lane as a unit. We’ve also updated the way monsters aggro during a siege and have added three new turrets to your arsenal! The trap interactions and challenges are completely revamped and will bring you a new and more rewarding sense of accomplishment!

Siege Scoring Updated

Sieges have a new way of calculating your score. With the next update, time is of the essence. Sieges start with less time, but killing monsters will increase your time! Defending your turrets also plays a larger role in your final siege score. If your turrets are destroyed, your score will suffer! These changes are reflected in an updated siege scoring UI. Of course, your own personal kills and damage done in the siege are still displayed.


“With a great update comes great changes.” The game will now feature a better combat system, a whole new onboarding experience, brand new tech trees, item upgrades, a huge UI update, new and improved monster behaviors, and so much more… Therefore, to implement these changes, we drastically had to change the game and your current game data will be reset once the update goes live. BUT, this update is a totally new, fully revamped game, and a better experience for all players!

It also lays the groundwork for future updates, and we have some great things in store for you! We will have even more exciting announcements in the next few days, so stay tuned on Steam, our community Discord, and our social media!

Thank you for playing Eden Rising!

“I’m quite impressed with Eden Rising as an Early Access title. Too often these games just feel half-baked when they hit steam. Instead, Nvizzio’s open world tower defense is a delight, polished, and feels really engaging.”

“It's got a gorgeous science-fantasy art style, is being developed by industry vets who've worked on games like The Secret World and Age of Conan, and has some intriguing ideas about how to revive a genre that's long been cold.”

“The team at Nvizzio Creations is hoping to have Eden Rising out of early access by the end of 2018. If it uses that time well, putting polish on this game and smoothing out all its edges, this really will be my favorite game all year.”
