What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Players help us create the game by providing feedback to add or remove certain features in the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Estimate 3 to 4 months as we will collect user feedback and data to add or remove features in the game. The game will receive content updates every 1 or 2 weeks. We are active with our community through in-game, email and forums and we're always looking for feedback and ideas that would improve the experience.”

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

“The difference between Early Access and full is that the Early Access version contains a smaller play area within the open world and contains features that could be added or removed from the final release version. Such as:

    [Smaller playable area within the open world (This will expand during content updates)]
    [Contains experimental in-game loot with a player inventory (This could be removed from the final version) ]
    [Contains placeholder camera and camera UI during battle mode (This will be replaced with a full animated camera UI)]
    [Currently the game contains 15% story (Due to open world limitation during early access This will grow during new content updates every 1 - 2 weeks)]
    [Experimental communication mode. Communicate with ghosts and human characters. (This could be removed from the final version)]
    [Experimental side quests to play. (These could be edited, removed or added in the final version)]
    [Possibility for a online/co-op mode during Early Access in a later stage. This could be removed from the Final version. ]

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

    [Smaller playable area within the open world]
    [Fewer enemies then the release version]
    [Contains experimental in-game loot with a player inventory ]
    [Contains placeholder camera and camera UI during battle mode]
    [Currently the game contains 15% story (Due to open word limitation during early access This will grow during new content updates)]
    [Experimental side quests to play]
    [Feedback mode. This allows players to provide early access feedback during gameplay]
    [Experimental communication mode. Communicate with ghosts and human characters.]

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

“The Early Access version will be 50% cheaper then the release version.”

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

“Users can enter the feedback forums on our official website forums. Users can also use the community page on Steam to provide feedback. We also receive emails: feedback@blueboxgamestudios.com.”
