What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Early Access program made Onward possible as an independently developed game. From the start we’ve worked with our community to determine the priorities and direction of development throughout the last couple of years. Onward is currently maturing fast, and we’re certain that without the Early Access program we wouldn’t have been able to develop the game we have now. We owe a huge thanks to our fans and supporters, and we hope you’ll join the many people who play Onward every day.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think Onward is currently in the final stages of Early Access, and we plan to leave Early Access within a year when we feel we’ve delivered on the vision we developed with our community.”

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

“At this point the focus in Onward’s development is on finishing touches, improving stability, optimisations to the game’s source code, and general polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is almost complete from a functional perspective and is being played by thousands of people. We are aware of some technical issues which we’re working to resolve as soon as possible so that everyone can enjoy the game.”

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

“We had originally planned to increase the price after leaving the Early Access program but as a thank you to our community we’ve decided to keep the price where it is now.”

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

“Over the past few years our community has been involved closely in the decisions we’ve made for Onward in both direction and priorities. Even to this day we regularly consult with our community on which new features to add or if any major new issues have popped up.”

About This Game

Become fully immersed in the firefight!

Experience a first person shooter as you never have before: Onward combines mil-sim gameplay with the experience of playing in virtual reality. Players cannot rely on crosshairs or mini maps. Instead, you must rely on coordination and communication with your squad In order to succeed at your objective. Realistic combat mechanics and artificial locomotion will push your combat survival skills to their limit as you engage in infantry combat across a large variety of maps and combat situations.

What you’ll find in Onward

  • Solo and co-op game modes
    Take on AI enemies to hone your skills against our AI opponents. Chase down all enemies in a Hunt, or hold off the enemy forces as you wait for your extraction in an Evac mission. Explore maps freely or go to the shooting range to familiarize yourself with the wide variety of weapons in the game, all of which are unique and require knowledge to operate.
  • Multiplayer battles with up to ten players
    Take to the online battlefield in a high stakes clash with up to ten people and best your enemies on a strategic and tactical level. Choose one of three objective based modes where you need to fight for control over an Uplink station, get the VIP to safety (or prevent it), or secure an area long enough to upload a code through your tablet.
  • Two unique factions with a wide variety of weapons
    Onward focuses the battle between the modern militaristic MARSOC faction which has access to modern weapons including the AUG, M16, M1014, P90 and the M249 light machine gun and the insurgent Volk forces who utilize weapons such as the AKS74U, the Makarov, and even an RPG launcher. This is only a small sample of what awaits in game.
  • Community created content
    Create your own battlefields in Onward by building custom maps and using them in the game. We actively support the creative forces in our community with developing unique content for the game.
