With your help and support I can improve the core design and implement the most desirable features from customer feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Up to four months for the core enhancements.”

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

Additional side-story content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is a fully playable game with choice in character builds, lots of equipment to use, and a story based progression.

All the features listed in the 'About This' section are already implemented in the Early Access version of the game, please refer to this for more details.”

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

This game contains some strong language, with themes of violence and visual blood effects.
