What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As we are a small team of developers, we want to ensure the base game is in the most stable and balanced state as possible with the polish and level of quality that the game must be in to be successful in a competitive space. With a strong need to have a fair, balanced, and even experience to be a rewarding competitive experience for our players, we will release it into early access so that early adopters can be part of the process to balance Mechabellum for satisfying competitive play. These early pioneers will help shape the future of Mechabellum as we move toward version 1.0.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our estimation is that the game will be in Early Access for 12 months.”

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

“Like many other great multiplayer games such as CSGO and Starcraft 2, Mechabellum is intended go into Free to Play when all of the systems are ready. When that happens, everyone who bought the game will also receive a special bundle of rewards that will be unavailable for purchase any other way as a gesture of appreciation for supporting us. Our goal is that this will be at the time of the full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Mechabellum is already fully-featured with Commanders, units, maps, 1v1 battles, 2v2 battles, account progression, and an in-game tournament system to allow you to compete with other players worldwide. Additionally, game modes such as Survival allow you to test your might against waves of AI enemies. The status of the development is that we will continue to tweak, bug fix, and balance the game with feedback from our early adopters.”

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

“Both during and after Early Access, Mechabellum will be priced the same. After our Early Access we will reward our community with exclusive content that will be unavailable any other way.”

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

“Community feedback and input will be crucial during the Early Access period to ensure that the game is balanced fairly, that the matchmaking and multiplayer systems are functioning properly, and to help us build a premier competitive experience within the game.

While we are a small team, we will be gathering feedback from Steam Discussions, Discord, Twitter, and anywhere else that our community creates channels of feedback to us.”

About This Game

Mechabellum is a rewarding tactical wargame where thinking ahead and adapting your strategy will gain you victory. Command your mechanized army in battle against human or AI opponents. Customize your units and abilities, strategically place them on the battlefield and watch them destroy your enemies.

From the nimble Wasp light aircraft to the massive, flame-wielding Vulcan, learn the strengths and weaknesses of a large number of unique units. Customize them and their abilities before and during battles to maximize their destructive power.

Anticipate your enemy and strategically place your mechs on the battlefield. Counter your opponent’s moves by choosing the perfect unit combination, loadout and positioning as the battle unfolds.

Turn a losing battle into victory by calling down the perfectly placed airstrike, or spread chaos by calling in a horde of crawler bots in the midst of your enemy’s army.

Watch shrapnel, incendiary bombs and huge lasers cut through the air as battles between massive armies of war machines unfold in front of your eyes, and watch the scale of destruction escalate with every round.

Fight against advanced AI before you challenge players in PvP combat. Try different unit combinations and abilities without the pressure of facing real players.
