What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With all the main game features and core game elements completed, it allows us to expand the community and directly engage on development, game balancing and modding. Our goal is to deliver and provide the best experience to our gamers and with your help, Terminal Conflict is set to become the first grand strategy Cold War title that provides player made mods at game release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is generally features complete and in Beta, enabling you to play single-player and multiplayer and to provide your story via modding while we add in the final content and polishing, so pencil in your calendars and prepare for full release in 2019.”

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

“Please buy the game only if you want to play it as it exists now - not based on what it might become in the future.

The final game will only differ from the Early Access version by being bigger, better balanced, faster, more polished in general and with some awesome custom made modding tools in our fully integrated game editor.

Though we are planning to add language support for several more languages, there won't be any game scope updates at this late stage unless done by modders. Content release is going as planned and delivery will be done weekly as scheduled.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Terminal Conflict is a feature completed and successfully funded game and has been two years in development by our industry veteran team whose previous game development experiences include Arsenal of Democracy, League of Legends, Magic the Gathering, Uncharted 2, The Last of Us, and many other known titles. The game is playable and contains the following features:

• Turn-based single-player Cold War strategy and head-to-head multiplayer
• MIRVIN, your retro computer, purpose-built, AI guide, brilliant voice acting by James Spence.
• Nuclear warfare systems and authentic Doomsday Clock tension mechanism, the countdown to midnight has started … 3 …2 …1
• All aspects of strategic warfare - economic, intelligence, diplomacy and military combat.
• Already completed, era immersive, historically plausible events and decisions, like the Arab-Israeli Wars, Cuban and Chinese revolutions.
• Recruit 40+ unique historical leaders like Mao Zedong, Margaret Thatcher, or Ernesto ''Che'' Guevara brandishing their own special abilities.
• The Space Race is on! Will you claim technological superiority?
• Create and tell your own history through modding and customization with a powerful integrated in-game editor”

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

“Price will not change when we leave early access and early access backers will get the iOS/Android mobile version of Terminal Conflict for free when it comes up for release.”

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

“The community is a vital part of our development process as we actively seek your feedback on features and updates on our community Discord Server, on Twitter, Facebook and on Reddit (links at www.terminalconflict.com). Community suggested ideas are therefore commonly team discussion topics, as we know our players are serious strategy gamers and we value highly the input each individual player can have.”
