What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our current focus is to develop an online shooter that is driven by the community. By releasing the into Early Access, we can see exactly what the community wants, and continue to develop the game based on the feedback given to us. Early Access also gives us time to add more content and continue all the bits of polish necessary for an amazing shooter experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently, our plan is to remain in Early Access until early 2019. This timeline can be a bit longer or shorter depending on community feedback.”

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

“Our biggest priority is to nail down the core game loop and iterate on the feel, polish, and balance of the gameplay. Over time we want to expand and add:

  • More maps, weapons, and items as well as a shooting range for solo practice
  • Custom rules for server hosts to play around with
  • Squad Battle Royale
  • Taunts and more cosmetics
  • Graphical polish
  • Controller support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have a solid core that’s a lot of fun. Current content includes 12-player solo battle royale with one urban map along with 14 weapons and items. Players can also host their own peer-to-peer servers.”

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

“We plan to increase the price just slightly as we begin to add more features to the game, as it will be a more complete experience at its full release.”

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

“We are very open to shaping the game along with the community! Let us know what you think here on steam – or even better join us directly.

We have some core content and features planned over the next few months, but beyond that we are quite open to shaping the game with the community. That could include experimenting with modes outside of Battle Royale (prop hunt, gun game, etc.), or other more time costly features such as adding vehicles. The best way to let us know what you think is to tell us here on the steam – or even better, join our discord!
