Free Version Update #1 (v1.0.244) + Letter from the Developers!

Hey Wardens,

We’ve heard your feedback about the free version, and we are updating the messaging on the Steam page and in the game. We realize the messaging was not clear enough, and we understand this may have caused some confusion for some players.

We know our business model is pretty new, so we’re working hard to make sure it’s getting better and clearer.

Here’s what we want you to be able to do:
  • Play and discover the base game of Eden Rising for free in solo or multiplayer mode. The Free Explorer Edition lets you do exactly that and, unlike a demo, you get to keep your progression

  • Your friend has bought the Ascendant Edition expansion and you want to join them to play everything (base game + Ascendant expansion) for free in multiplayer. The Free Explorer Edition lets you do exactly that

  • Make it so only one friend needs to get the Ascendant Edition for your group of friends to have access to all the game content (base game + Ascendant expansion)!

The Explorer Edition will not be called “free-to-play” anymore. We feel from the reactions that this sets a certain expectation among players regarding pacing, microtransactions, the gameplay, etc. Instead, let’s just call it “free.”

In addition, we just released a new update to the Free Explorer Edition. It opens up much more of the gameplay in the free base game. You can now play 3 times more sieges, unlock more tech, etc. With this update, we feel there is now at least 12 hours of solo gameplay in the free base game, if not more.

The updated free version remains FULLY COMPATIBLE with the Ascendant expansion, and if you join an Ascendant Edition server, you have access to all the game content.

For clarity, this Free Explorer Edition is not (at least, in our opinion) a demo. Steam’s “demo” designation doesn’t allow you to keep your save data once you play the full game. On top of that, demos don’t have the ability to connect to any games except other demo versions. We chose not to use this distinction for these reasons, but also because the content you receive in the free version is much more than a demo -- it essentially gives you hours and hours of gameplay as well as a free multiplayer client to access absolutely all the game content (base game + Ascendant expansion). This is what allowed us to offer the unique ability to let one friend buy the game and the rest of your friends to join.

Again, we’re happy to chat with anyone who has questions or would like to discuss with us, especially on Discord. :) We hope to continue improving Eden Rising, including the messaging around this new business model! Please check out the updated infographic below!

PATCH NOTES v1.0.244

FEATURES
  • Unlocked Explorer Edition access to 20 ADDITIONAL SIEGES and associated Tech Tiers in the Valley and Fungal Preserve Crucibles.

BALANCE UPDATES
  • Forge patterns requiring large counts of very rare monster resources (Thulian Veils, Stygian Organs) have had their costs reduced.
  • Interesting resources that don't get used enough (Deep Ore) have had costs increased in their Forge patterns.
  • The Valley Tier 3 Siege "RAPIER" has had its time requirements adjusted to make it possible to get higher link results.
  • Increased cost of some Crucible Improvements to match the total cost with the available module count.
  • Monster drop containers now last 5 minutes instead of 2 minutes.

FIXES AND ADJUSTMENTS
  • Fixed Searing Coast map to properly reflect deep sulphur areas.
  • Blast, Blaze and Gamma gloves now play their sounds properly.
  • Browser queries now prioritize searches for world name, if entered.

Reviews

“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.”
MMORPG

“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.”
Gamesradar+

“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.”
