What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Ring of Elysium is a multiplayer online battle royale shooter. We need more feedback to create a better polished game. With players joining the game earlier, we can understand our players better and adjust the final version accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access will last for approximately 3 - 6 months, depending on the development schedule.”

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

“The final version will provide a refined battle royale mode, polished features, and fine-tuned gameplay balance. We will also implement new features including player progression systems, and several casual game modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access build provides one battle royale mode on a snow mountain map. Mode rules and gameplay features are full and operational. Basic systems are fully-featured, including matchmaking, friends, cosmetic item collection and more. Server operation and client stability are in great shape. This build has gone through a closed-beta period with several thousands of participants and overall user experience was proven to be very good.”

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

“The game will be permanently free, during and after Early Access.”

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

“We will monitor feedback from the community on a daily basis and reply promptly. Players are welcomed to send ideas and suggestions directly to our email We will read them intently and implement good ones in our game.”

If your PC uses Intel integrated graphics cards and is experiencing game crashes, please try to update your drivers to the latest version to solve this issue.

    • After Ymir reaches the final zone, tension rises to the extreme- knocking down or killing enemies will trigger the adrenaline rush effect which makes a player resistant to Ymir damage for a short duration
