What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is your chance to play Idle Champions and help us refine the game as we make the final changes ahead of full launch.

We'll be updating Idle Champions throughout Early Access based on your experience to make it the best game it can be. However, we do want to let you know you might experience some bugs. We'll do our best to patch them up as quickly as possible. Don't worry about losing your progress, though. We won't be resetting player progress at any point during or after the Early Access period. You'll get to keep all of your Champions, gear, and story progress when the game is officially launched.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With your help we expect to go to full launch in three to six months from Early Access launch.”

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

“Between now and full launch we'll be spending time balancing the gameplay, adding new features, and working on our event design.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with several initial adventures and a free play mode.”

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

“Idle Champions is a free game which includes the option for players to buy chests of random gear, buffs, trinkets and gold. All pricing will stay the same from Early Access to full launch.”

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

“We're very excited to hear from you, so please join the official Idle Champions community on Steam and let us know what you think.”

Idle Champions challenges players to assemble a party of Champions and master the art of Formation Strategy.
