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 moved to Beta on March 28, 2019, and we will keep the Community informed on important future dates for Wolcen with news on Steam, the Official website, and on the Social Media.”

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

“The Early Access version of the game includes the Act I, some gameplay features, and end-game content. The released version will offer the full story and the majority of the gameplay features including end-game content. But that's not the end of it since we want Wolcen to have several free extensions throughout the years and keep adding fun and cool features to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game presently allows you to play the Act I which offers you at least 4 hours of story content. You can reach level 20 and try various builds, farm for equipment and earn exceptional rewards with the Soldier of Fortune random dungeon game mode.
Wolcen doesn't force you to play any class, and around 20 spells are implemented. These spells can be improved as you use them and have various cool effects to increase their power and efficiency. The Passive Skill Tree also allows you to experiment with various builds, from straight-forward archetypes to hybrids.”

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 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.”
