What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The great thing about Early Access is that we can develop the game together with you, the players. We carefully listen to every opinion and suggestion and will always try to make our game the best it can be.

Join us to make Ultimus bellum game of your and our dreams!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The length is variable, but our aim is 3-6 months.”

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

“MORE content! More hours to play!
  • additional 2-4 game acts (12-24 levels)
  • additional 2-4 challenge levels
  • enemy bosses
  • set items
  • hero abilities (abilities-cards)
  • MORE enemies
  • design and graphic improvements
  • better levels / hero / enemy balance
  • game story / cut scenes
  • tutorial

We also try to add content based on your feedback!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now the game is fully playable and has all of the main features, but it’s still not the game we dreamed of. What we have now:
  • 4 acts, 24 game levels with 5 levels of difficulty each
  • 24 challenge levels with random generated enemy waves
  • 130+ hero items
  • more than 20+ hours of gameplay

We still eagerly await your feedback and suggestions!”

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

“The Early Access version is cheaper than the final release, to reflect the game’s ongoing development, and to thank those who support us in Early Access.”

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

“We will consider all comments and suggestions of the community and make the best game both ourselves and the players can dream of!”
