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.

“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.”
