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.”

Early Access Patch Notes - 10.12.2018

Dear players,

Welcome to the latest official patch notes for Ring of Elysium’s Early Access phase. In this patch, we are making some changes to the endgame mechanics as well as some important bug fixes. Read on for the full details:

Endgame changes
Lately, we have received some great suggestions and feedback from the community regarding the endgame meta. We are glad that the Dev team had similar discussions and have implemented the following:
  • Position revealing has changed from continuous to periodic
  • As Ymir reaches the final zone, the storm will become increasingly fierce and gradually reduces visibility, reaching the minimum within one minute
  • After the temperature reaches -30C degrees, it will keep dropping and the damage to players will increase rapidly (The time it takes to reach -30C degrees and the damage dealt during this time remains the same)

  • Reduced the starting point selection screen's countdown from 60 to 45 seconds

  • Changed the following wording in Leaderboards:
    • Total ELO changed to Overall Rating
    • Killing ELO to Kill Rating
    • Surviving ELO changed to Rank Rating
  • Made the helipad icon to be affected by map zooming 

  • Slightly optimized UI performance
  • Improved the stutter issue by decreasing the Texture Pool GC frequency

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where characters can snowboard in prone position
  • Fixed an issue where the vehicle's horn sounds become non-stop in some cases
  • Fixed an issue where Fullscreen mode will reset to Windowed mode after the patch
  • Fixed a crash caused by switching to Fullscreen mode
  • Fixed a crash in FPP mode
  • Fixed an issue where the far away fog effects at the edge of the screen was cut off
