What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

The whole Beyond Flesh and Blood experience delivers carefully-crafted, yet very gory gameplay along with a searing sci-fi narrative, which we believe can only be improved. Gameplay is king. We trust in our community, and trust that you can provide the best feedback during the final production processes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6-12 months.”

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

“The game’s designed to be a massive indie. With 6 more levels added – that’s 12 levels in total for the first episode before moving into episode 2, wave maps achievements and leaderboards, and localization.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We’ll be completing Beyond Flesh and Blood as the first episode with 12 levels, before bringing the other 14 up to speed with the team adding the final layer of polish to create the full experience of Beyond Flesh and Blood.

The game will be constantly improved as updates support polish, optimization, bug fixing, and any outstanding, community features that are implemented into the final game. We want to make sure that everything in the game – from shotgun damage to objective colour – feels right.”

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

By buying now, you'll receive all future updates for free until the game leaves Early Access as the full product. The price will likely be higher after Early Access, and by this point, the feedback from the community will have informed both the full PC and Console release.”

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

We are definitely listening and involving you in this. Every single suggestion will be discussed by the team, and if it works in game, will be a key piece in our regular update cycle.

There will also be video updates from the game, the dev team, and anything that we hope you find entertaining. We eagerly invite you all to give us your feedback to make Beyond Flesh and Blood the best game possible.

Also, be sure to check out the Community Hub for the list of working features before you buy.”

Reviews

“Exploiting the great weakness of all humans to want anything that involves stompy robots with guns, Beyond is a third-person shooter set primarily in Manchester in 2281. Adam being long dead/encased in protective titanium until he is truly needed, it’s up to you to save humanity by shooting a bunch of aliens.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“The action sees you fighting aliens and upgrading your mech from android like frames to hulking tanks and it is gory. 90s PC game gory.”
Kotaku

“As a fan of mechs, post-apocalypse, guns, and the like, Beyond Flesh and Blood already ticks a lot of boxes for me.”
Windows Central

Become the master of a brand new, exciting agile third person mech shooter set on a dystopian Earth in the first episode of Beyond Flesh and Blood.

SPACE IS EASY. PREPARE FOR EARTH.

JOIN THE UGR. Beyond Flesh and Blood is the harsh shooter designed to push your skills to the limit.
Battle through this gory sci-fi, blast apart every enemy with powerful weapons – and unlock the frightening secrets of a 23rd century gone rogue...



  • Gory violence: people being ripped in half, gibs and blood, explosions, fire, lasers…and loads more delicious gibs.
  • Tough training: no easy gameplay and no cover-based shooting. Unearth your inner hardcore PC gamer...stop hiding and get shooting!
  • Detailed environments: Manchester is re-imagined as a dystopian UK city, making full use of the powerful Unreal engine
  • Progress is reigned in by the communications link between mind and mech - install signal towers and hack the electricity to get online
  • Guns. Explosives. Industrial lasers. Enemy weapons are obtained by killing the opponent (acting as a temporary upgrade to augment your firepower).
  • Custom soundtrack
  • Mech in Mech: the player can pilots multiple combat rigs – including enemy rigs
  • 2+ hours story-driven game play, 12 levels before the release of the full first episode
  • Discover the truth about humanity’s future exile from Earth…


The year is 2281 and piloting military grade mechs is the only way back to Earth, 80 years after a Global War for resources forced decent society to the edge of Earth’s atmosphere.

Ethan is an engineer from the United Global Remnant: the very last survivors of the human race. Space is safe, but rumours of aliens, terrorists and a meteorite finally conscript Ethan away from humanity's last orbital home, the UGR Astralis space colony.

He must pilot a series of increasingly advanced Tactical Frames alongside the UGR at their base in Manchester, UK. With mind control, there’s no death. But the only way to get health back is by absorbing energy spawned by fallen foes, you to fight to survive. Once a frame is destroyed, a new one is dropped in from orbit allowing you to get straight back into the fight.

TO LEARN THE TRUTH, YOU MUST GO BEYOND FLESH AND BLOOD.


Stand your ground fearlessly. Your enemies are human, machine, alien – and unknown. And anything else we can all come up with as a community!

Venture Beyond anything you’ve ever known - break rank and rules.

Join the UGR. Believe the impossibly dark secrets of a 23rd century Earth gone rogue...
