What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Feedback from the Steam Community would be helpful to make sure the final game provides the best experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will stay in Early Access for approximately 6 - 12 months.”

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

“Planned features:
  • more map generation and game configuration options ✓
  • improved AI
  • extended tutorial
  • modding support
  • unit experience and leveling system ✓
  • improved Steam integration (achievements & stats, workshop, cloud saving)
  • balancing changes

Updates will be released throughout the Early Access period to fix issues and add new features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable in single- and multiplayer mode. Of course there are missing features, bug fixes to be made, the AI needs improvements, units might not be properly balanced yet. These should be fixed during Early Access.
For details please see the About this game section, it contains all the currently available features.”

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

“The price will probably not change when the game leaves early access.”

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

“I'm looking forward constructive feedback about issues and improvement ideas, either on Steam forums, support contacts or reddit. Updates about the development will be published on major social media platforms.”

Modding is available in open beta!

Hey everyone!


I'm happy to announce that after a lot of work modding is finally available in the open beta branch!


Why only beta? Steam Workshop is not integrated yet, and there are still some convenience features missing, so I feel like it is not ready yet for full release. On the other hand I wanted to make it available early so that modders can start getting familiar with it. (And some players were wondering if the development is still going, so I wanted to show, yes!)


To play it please follow the steps below:
- right click on From Village to Empire in your Steam library
- go to Properties \ Betas
- opt-in by picking the "beta - Public beta branch" in the drop-down menu

After you do this, your game will update, and you're good to go.


There is a modding guide and two sample mods available:
- right click on From Village to Empire in your Steam library
- go to Properties \ Local Files
- click on "Browse Local Files"
- go to the "mods" directory where you can find the guide and the sample mods

The sample mods are disabled by default, they can be enabled by editing the modinfo.json file.


⚠️ Warning ⚠️
Saves from the newer version of the game are not usable in the current live build, so make sure you backup your progress before playing the updated version. Multiplayer is also restricted to clients with the same version.


The next step before the proper release is to add support for sharing mods in the Steam Workshop.


Please let me know if you are having any issues running this version of the game.


Have fun playing!
