What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Considering the scale we would like to achieve and the time it will take to reach the full array of features we plan to deliver, it makes sense for us to allow our fans and the wider public access to the game while it is still in development. The nature of the game allows us to take very clean vertical slices (for example, infantry combat, vehicle combined arms warfare) and expand on them while we continue to develop new features in other areas. This allows the community to enjoy and support the game and its developers while work continues, a scenario which our development team is very familiar with, coming from a modding background where fast iteration and immediate player feedback are important.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are anticipating for Squad to remain in Early Access until the end of 2018.”

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

“In the full version, we are aiming for the support of 100 player servers with 50 players on each side. In addition what we have planned are a full compliment of vehicles for each faction, which goes from the small (motorbikes), all the way to helicopters. Lastly we intend to fully flesh out the Base Building system by including more deployables, refining the construction and supply systems.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Squad is in a stage where infantry combat is fully implemented with vehicles added in a "first pass" iteration. We are currently refactoring many older code systems and working on optimization as well as increasing the breadth of content.”

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

“It has yet to be determined whether the price of the game will change during or after early access.”

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

“Currently Squad developers are very active on the forums, discord and Reddit gathering feedback and bug reports to improve the game. We are also actively supporting the modding community, having added Mod Support in 2017.”

Squad Free Weekend - 6/21-6/24

Hey squaddies!

Welcome to the free weekend! It will be running until 6/24 at 2000 UTC. It’s always a crazy time, so we wanted to share some tips for enjoying Squad to the fullest.

First up, we wanted to direct you to community member SgtHerhi’s top notch work: Quick Start Guide for New Players. Once you’ve mastered basics, get your flippers on How Not to Suck at Squad. You’ll note that a sense of humor may be one of the essential tools you’ll want to bring along. ;)

Next up, we’d encourage you to join the Squad Community Discord server. There you’ll find lots of like-minded players that are ready to team up, answer questions, or just hang out and chat about Squad. There’s also a #support channel for assistance and you might run into a few developers as well.

Last, but not least, if you run into any technical difficulties, check out our support site. We’re still an Early Access title, so there may be some rough edges. The support site will help take care of the most common issues and get you back in-game in no time.

We hope you enjoy the weekend and we’re looking forward to fighting alongside all of you! See you out there!

Offworld Out.
