What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Despite the fact that before publishing a game in Steam store we made a huge scope of works on game development, and made internal testing of alpha version, which was lasting for little more than a year, we think that our game is not ready enough to get the stats of final version. At the moment, game contains great amount of game content, designed for many hours of gameplay, but there is a big stock of new ideas and game possibilities in our plans. We think, that Early Access allows involving bigger number of players to Will To Live Online universe, which gives the possibility to Steam game community to take active part in game development, and for us this is a financial support for future development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At the moment we have no opinion for exact date, but we hope that game will be out of Early Access in the second quarter of 2019.”

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

“Full version will have much more game possibilities, their major part will be directed to the development of social content of the game, which allows increasing the role of interaction between players in many spheres of activity: in-game economics and trade; craft; fractions and clans; raid monsters, etc. Great attention will be paid to presentation of world history through the number of questlines, that will give the possibility to players to sort out the current situation in game world, as well as understand possible reasons of the Catastrophe and histories of conflicts.
As well, much larger world is waiting for players in full version. During the period of Early Access we plan to add a good number of different locations with unique features of gameplay, which allows players’ total immersion to the process of exploration of game world.
Beside the abovementioned, full version of the game will contain much bigger amount of in-game content: expanded selection of weapons and inventory; different equipment; majority of both regular and raid monsters; ample opportunities for character customization; voicework for game characters; ample opportunities for craft, and a lot more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the current stage, all the functions, presented in game description, are implemented in the game.

At the moment game contains 11 locations with diffenet types of territory: wastelands, abandoned villages, forests, mines, caves, bogs and military objects. World is full of different hazards and incomprehensible phenomena: radiation, monsters, anomalies and enigmatic artifacts.

More than 100 quests are realized, no less than 40 hours are necessary for their completion, and their questline leads the player to selection of one of adversary factions.

Players may create up to 4 different characters and adjust their appearance: select sex, stature, face, clothes, their colors, etc. Class system of characters and system of skills development are implemented, which might be changed during the game.

Game contains basic craft opportunities, such as cooking and brewing with the campfire, construction of simple inventory items, mining of different minerals and steel production. There is a possibility of trade between players in the game. We realized the opportunity to add players to the groups; voice communication and text chat are available.

As the game contains basic elements of surviving, players will face the search of sources of water and food. Hunting is one of the ways to get the food. For this, beside monsters, regular animals exist in the game: hens, rabbits, foxes and deer.

At the moment game contains more than 30 types of weapons with the possibility to modify it: painting and installation of additional accessories, such as scopes and red-dot sights and muzzle brakes.

As the game is not a final product yet, character progress is artificially limited with 35 level. However, to achieve this level, player needs several weeks of playing time. This limitation will be changed during the process of game development, and maximally possible level in final version will be equal to 100.”

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

“We understand that in this moment our game is not a final product, and during the period of Early Access we will make a great amount of work to make our game better and closer to its final state. Considering the fact that we do not plan to insert the paid content to the game, which influences the game balance, it may happen that we will change the cost of our game after its leaving the Early Access.”

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

“Before publishing the game in Early Access we were actively working with established game community in social networks and in our forums. In the stage of Early Access, we plan keeping communicating with our game community, will follow the thematic discussions of our players, and, as well, we will consider the opinion of game community, especially if it is related to different problems, connected with game process and balance. Besides, we always follow the offers, related to new functions in the game, and if these offers are supported by majority of players, we try to implement them. Thus, community is literally defining the final state of the game.”

2-nd anniversary and DLC giveaway!

Hello everybody!

Two years ago we invited a small group of people of our subscribers in social networks to take part in by-invitation alpha testing. All these years, little by little, we were adding new content, new locations, new quests, and new game mechanics, being in close touch with our community. This is how the history of "Will To Live" began and WTL universe met its first guests!

Today we have good news for everyone, who is supporting us all these years and who has been keeping to support us after Early Access release on Steam!

The first news is that we reduced the price of the game! Now the game costs less, and we hope that now more people around the world can afford our game. We hope it should help to increase the popularity of the game. New prices will be available soon.

The second news is that we have just announced a first DLC which is called "Founder's Pack". This DLC contains some additional visuals for characters and weapon with custom skins. All these items don't affect the game balance any way, but everyone has got a possibility to lend us additional support by buying "Founder's Pack".

And, finally, third news! Everyone who has already got "Will To Live Online" will receive this DLC as a gift! The DLC will be sent gradually (this process is not controlled by us).

Thanks to everyone, who supports us, thanks to everyone, who helps us to make the game better!

PS: To get a gift, please update the game client, visit Black Market merchants and check customization options of your character.
