What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While the skirmish and multiplayer elements are in the game, there’s still more that needs adding. This includes the core single player campaign exploring the universe of Executive Assault 2, and adding new and exciting technologies that the community can help come up with based on playing the game and help balance out. Also, the protester mode (when added) really needs input from the community as to what achievements should be added.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The balancing, adding the single player mode, new tech suggestions and multiplayer feedback from the community may take a while to implement over 6-12 months.”

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

“The full version will have a single player campaign, map editor, Protester mode where you can join into any persons online game as a protester, more technology and more music. A better user interface will also be added, and placeholder assets will be upgraded to more bespoke permanent assets.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Skirmish mode and multiplayer mode are available to play from the get-go. Please bear in mind some new bugs that I have not encountered may still be found.

There is no single-player campaign mode, or joining a game midway through as a protester as of yet.

There are about 60 technologies in the game. This is planned to increase to over 100 available technologies.”

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

“It may increase with price to reflect the new additions, content and upgraded quality of the game.”

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

“The community will be the cornerstone of getting the game just right with suggestions and feedback for new technologies or ways to make the game more fun to bring it up to a high standard of gameplay.”

Patch notes 0.429.5

Some nice new features added today

New Features
  • Added an in-game chat window, just press Return at any time to bring it up and press Return again to send the message, by default it will send messages to all teams members and allies, however if you hold down right shift it when you press Return it will send to everyone.
  • Replaced the mining outpost with a much larger one with 8 landing pads and its own area just for manufacturing new ships, this should help with large mining operations and stuck cargo transports.
Bug fixes
  • Weapon ranges while direct piloting a star ship have been set to match the range the AI captain can shoot plus an extra 50 meters for a small advantage.
  • Improved detection when trying to assassinate your own CEO to prevent trolling.
  • Smoke in the bridge should now appear for the correct team.
  • Executrons no longer get stuck in multiplayer when coming out of a troop transport.
  • Ore processing limits should now work properly.
  • Repair facility range has now been significantly increased to cater for the larger ships.
  • Repair facility health reduced by almost half.
Notes
Looking at adding a special Executron facility which will come with spawning areas, Borg like alcoves for going into Execudisplay mode which will replace the 'moshpit' on the bridge, weapons racks/upgrade areas and an employee prison for troublesome Executrons.

I am currently aware of frames per second drops in the game which will be addressed but it currently isn't any single one issue but simply lots of scripts and graphics that need optimising, the single player save feature is coming along nicely but still needs more work before I make it live, and plenty of other issues that are on my bug list.

Enjoy and happy Halloween.

Help friends run their company in multiplayer mode, with one player assuming the role of CEO and tactician and the other, a soldier or ship unit, with all the loot split straight down the middle.
