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.”

Technical Beta Phase 1 is a go!



[RU translation]


Hello everyone!

Phase 1 of the technical Beta starts today! This news will give you the steps to follow so you can participate to the P1 T-Beta, we also added a few more content to the previously announced content to make it even nicer.

How to install the Beta

You are now able to access the T-Beta P1 if you follow these steps:

1. Go to your Library and right click on Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem to choose the “Properties” menu.



2. Choose the Beta tab on your menu, and select the Beta branch.



3. There is no code, just close the window. The P1 T-Beta will then automatically download!

If the BETAS submenu doesn’t appear, you may need to restart Steam first!

How to play with your friends

In Tech Beta 1, Matchmaking is not yet integrated so you will have to play with your friends using direct invitation.
Our friend list is independent from Steam’s friend list. We’ve integrated a tag system that will provide you with a Wolcen tag automatically when you log in the game.



You need to add your friends to be able to create a party and join a game together. Click on “Add friends” and provide your friend’s Wolcen tag.



The field is case sensitive so make sure you don’t add a capital letter if there isn’t one :)

Once your friends are added in your friend list, you can invite them in your group and join a game together by pressing “Play” when the group is ready. You can have a maximum of 4 players in the same group.



Finally, we’re still working on a chat integration, so you will not be able to communicate with your friends in game.

Important known issue:

Unfortunately, some issues slipped into the technical beta 1 build. You can find a list of the known issues here: [link incoming]

One of those issues will cause your game creation to fail from time to time, displaying the following error “Your game couldn't be created, please try again later.”. However, you should be able to press the “Play” button again and ask for another game creation until it succeeds and you join the game.

Skills

All skills will be available for your character when you enter the game, you just have to go in your skill tree to find them, and drag and drop them on your action bar.



We wanted to add more diversity for the bowmen as well. Therefore, we decided to add another skill for this phase to allow you to enjoy a bit more the bow gameplay.

Phantom Blades(previously Bladeslinger) has been totally revamped.



You already had the opportunity to see it on the Beta gameplay preview, here is what it looks like with some AST customization!





Uniques

We also added a few uniques, one per archetype, so you will have cool items to crush your foes even more efficiently.





Gems

9 gem types will be available for this version and got a revamp. They will change in the future to allow you different elemental combinations.











Enjoy!

This phase 1 will be very important to us since it’s the first time that we implement Multiplayer for Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem. Your feedback will allow us to fix major issues and prepare for phase 2. During this phase, we plan to implement more weapons, skills, and enemies, so you can have a new experience while you’re testing the game.
Pistols, daggers, and shields will be back!

We will tell you more in the upcoming weeks about this phase and its content.

Have fun and thank you for your patience!

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!


You’re a former officer of the Human Republic forced to flee because of your unwillingly developed powers. Your path will lead you on an epic and unexpected adventure with your companions, as you uncover ancient secrets and truths hidden in this shattered world.
