What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access provides a platform where we can develop a game heavily driven by the suggestions and feedback from players. While we have a clear roadmap of where XERA: Survival is headed, we want to evolve with input from the community and provide players with an ongoing experience that gets better over time.

We have set some main objectives for Early Access:
  • Frequent Content Updates & Bug Fixes

    We plan to update the game regularly through Early Access. Patches will prioritize bug fixes and introduce new content and features.
  • Community Driven

    We will strive for XERA: Survival to be community driven. This does not mean every suggestion will be implemented - game design by committee never works - but we’re keen to incorporate constructive ideas that are within our means and fit the game. We have now held regular Community Polls to determine the order we implement our Roadmap, and also now have feedback forms after each Patch.
  • Cheating

    We want our players to have the confidence that they are playing in a cheat-free environment. While cheating in games is inevitable, we will work around the clock to put measures in place to prevent, catch and ban cheaters. We have already incorporated a leading third party anti-cheat system into the game - a major investment of time and money - and will be building in house tools to supplement this. We also have game moderators monitoring and processing player reports.
  • Performance

    We recognize that performance is a major factor in fast-paced multiplayer games. We will strive to optimize XERA: Survival so that a larger audience can play. We have limited servers deliberately to accommodate 35 players at present, and will strive to increase this as optimizations become possible at later stages of development.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We planned to be in Early Access for around 24 Months. Now we are headed to Free to Play, we need time to polish our newer core mechanics such as base building, add new content listed on our roadmap, and balance the game for full release.”

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

“The full version will be very different to the initial Early Access build and we have already made huge changes. There will be more content, gameplay features and community-led enhancements. However, these will be added to the game regularly through Early Access, rather than being saved and launched at the end. Through continuous collaboration with our community, you can expect a more refined and polished product after Early Access is concluded.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of XERA: Survival is very stable and contains many features that will definitely keep players entertained. Bugs will be fixed and new features implemented. Players can explore the world, surviving and fighting against other players and the XOIDS. Early Access will contain many early features which will be evolved based on the community's feedback. For a full list of Early Access features view the "About" section below.”

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

“We may alter the price or move to a free to play model as we ship more content and polish the game's core mechanics.”

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

“Since day one, the community has been involved in the development & design of XERA: Survival, and over 10,000 players participated in our alpha. We believe that player feedback is one of the most important functions of Early Access. We want to shape XERA: Survival around players’ thoughts and opinions to create the ultimate fast-paced PvPvE survival experience for fans of action-focused looter shooters with persistent inventories.

We encourage our players to join the conversation on our forums, Discord and other platforms to discuss future content and to contribute to the game's roadmap.”

2022: The era of AI has arrived. The world is in chaos after a prototype combat robot - banned by law and awaiting secure destruction by XERA Corporation - became self-aware, escaped and began replication on an industrial scale. Failed attempts to remotely shut down the AI simply triggered a war that humanity could not afford to lose.

Nation turned on nation in a fight for control over resources to defend against the robots. With the attention of the world’s military elsewhere, disenfranchised operatives have gathered to ransack what was left of the XERA facilities, setting up two forward operating bases, Safe Zones on each side of the forest that was the hiding place for mankind’s greatest failure of leadership.

Between these bases there are no rules of engagement. The only imperative is survival.


XERA: Survival is developed by Spotted Kiwi Interactive, an independent development company based in the deep south of New Zealand (Aotearoa) with team members around the world: 4 in NZ, 1 in Chile, 1 in Russia and 1 in USA.
