What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“World of Warplanes has already launched worldwide outside of Steam, but the Steam version has a new game client that needs to be checked. Early Access gives us the chance to gather feedback to implement changes and make necessary adjustments for more pleasant gameplay. We want to be sure that players will have the best experience before World of Warplanes is officially released.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Up to 6 months based on community feedback.”

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

“The main goal is to check everything, so the final version will not differ much from the Early Access one, as the game has already launched outside of Steam. We will focus on technical issues and gathering player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version allows you to play on shared servers and enjoy all the content, so the Early Access version is almost identical to the live client. The only thing that needs to be checked is how stable the game client is. All the features and content currently implemented in the game are listed in the "About this game" section.”

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

“The game will remain free to play after Early Access.”

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

“We are going to gather the community’s opinions/suggestions/critiques and implement all necessary technical and gameplay changes, so we encourage players to share their feedback. We try to stay as open with the community as possible, investigating issues and ideas. Besides regularly checking feedback and answering questions, we are going to share the information about the development process to stay closer to our community.”
