Watch the release trailer
Heathen Engineering’s Terran releases from early access on 21-March-2019 but that doesn’t mean the Heathen Team will be taking a break. The post-release plan for Terran calls for continued development with the first content update to be made available free for all Terran gamers. The content patch will feature additions to ship combat, new warships and ship technologies to research with additional details to be announced closer to release. The planned release date for the upcoming content patch is late Q3 2019.

Heathen Engineering’s Terran has been in early access since 21-March-2016 and has evolved greatly over its 3-year early access period driven largely by gamer feedback. The community driven approach will continue post-release with the ‘work-in-progress’ being made available ahead of the official update via Steam beta functionality. Players can find the Terran Roadmap on Trello with up to date information on upcoming content, known issues and future plans.
