Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want the game to be properly tested in the field while we implement the core features. Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is an ambitious project and we want to share its evolution with the Community, gather feedback, and improve the game accordingly. The game has a lot of replayable mechanics to test as well and we want to make sure that these mechanics are appreciated and polished.
An Early access is a perfect way to achieve these goals.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is important to us that Wolcen is properly polished before its release. We hope to move to Beta during 2018. We will keep the Community informed on important future dates for Wolcen with news on Steam, the Official website, and on the Social medias.”

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

“The Early Access version of the game will include the major gameplay features. The storyline, main quests, side quests, and other contents will only be available once the game is released.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game presently allows you to visit an alpha quest zone for 3-5 hours, leading you to level 13-14.
You can then reach level 20 and explore the world, farm for equipment in the bounty’s infinite dungeon, make PVE challenges in the arena for exceptional rewards, or participate to the daily dungeon and compete with other players for the best time.
You can access around 400 skills in the Passive Skill Tree split in 11 archetypes so far (on 20 planned). Wolcen doesn’t force you to choose any class, so feel free to mix these archetypes for a customized experience of the game!
Around 20 spells are implemented (signature skills excluded) and more are coming. These spells can be improved as you use them and have various cool effects to increase their power and efficiency.
The environment will react to your actions and you can perform elemental combos to affect your enemies.”

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

“Yes. As the content gets implemented, the price of the game will increase progressively.”

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

“The community has various ways to communicate and share with us, on these last 2 years we have been able to improve the game a lot thanks to the community feedback and reports.
Official forums and Steam forums can be used to express issues, ideas, feedback in general, or even report bugs.
Trello is used for the Roadmap, Suggestions and the Bug tracker.
We also gather your reactions from various social medias (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Twitch, streamers in general). If we can, we participate to streaming and provide answers to some questions.
Finally, all developers are on Wolcen’s official server on Discord.
All the useful links to communicate with us are available here: https://wolcengame.com/forums/topic/usefull-links-for-wolcen/.
We have a dedicated Community Manager to take care of our Community and ensure that while we develop the game we all stay connected to your needs, your opinions, and what you expect from us so our great game will also be your great game.”

Elemental Affixes video and TB-2 advancement



[DE translation]
[RU translation]

Hello everyone!

We know that you expect news about Phase 2 of the Technical Beta so let's start with this: we're progressing really well and Phase 2 will be pushed next week.

We plan to have Phase 2 available a little longer than Phase 1, we received a lot of requests from players eager to test, but unfortunately, they tried too late. We want to give you all the opportunity to access the Technical Beta and break everything, so we can fix this and make a perfect Beta for everyone.

As for the content, you will have new uniques, new skills and their Active Skill Tree, new creatures, and almost all weapon combinations will be available again. There will still be no Passive Skill Tree for the moment.
Another good news is that for Phase 2 we're starting the regionalization of the servers. We're expanding from 1 region for TB1 to 14 regions throughout the world for TB2. This will ensure that everyone has a satisfying experience with a low latency.

We will tell you everything next week, and to keep you waiting, we're sharing this video with you about the elemental affixes in Wolcen and their status ailments. We hope that you'll enjoy it :)

TB-1 Feedback and a new video!

[DE translation]
[RU translation]
[FR translation]

Hello everyone!

We're advancing well on Phase 2 implementation and we hope to give you good news very soon. We want to implement the possibility to join a pending party for the next phase so it's easier for you to test Multiplayer, and we need a little more time to be sure that it works fine. We're also preparing more skills, more weapons, and more creatures that you will be able to test.

Soon after that, we will focus on adding Matchmaking, but for the moment we're unsure if this feature will be available for Phase 2.

Phase 1 of the Technical Beta allowed us to spot a lot of bugs on the server side and on client side. Your help allowed us to gather 47 different server crashes and 154 different client crashes on a total of 1,700 reports gathered with the crash reporter.
We solved 84% of client crash reports so far.

You have been almost 12,000 to test the game during this phase and help us and we want to say once more: Thank you!

In today's video, we want to introduce the different archetypes of enemies you will encounter in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem's Beta.

About This Game

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is a beautifully rendered ARPG thanks to the CryEngine technology. Join this dynamic hack’n’slash and its fast-paced combat based on weapon combos. There are no class restrictions, you can choose your path as you level-up and play your character the way you want. Thanks to our resource opposition system, you can adapt to any kind of situation!

The environment will react to your actions and the elemental based spells you might use to vanquish your enemies. Soon, co-op will be added, and players will be able to combine spells to create chain reactions, in order to overcome greater challenges.

There will also be a unique mechanic called Apocalyptic Form that allows players to shapeshift into a devastating form, adapted to your play-style.
Dodge, dash, hack, slash, and unleash fury on your foes!
