What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to make sure that players understand that I want to get lots of testing done and make sure that players are going to love the final product, so I've opted for the game to be early access so that I can get lots of feedback from the community to help improve and balance gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No more 2-year early access games! I want to be in early access for as little time as possible, and that means working 30 hour shifts and sleeping for 5 hours every 2 days! With this in mind, early access should last no longer than 5 months.”

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

“New core game features such as:
  • Singleplayer & Online Co-Op Campaign
  • New multiplayer gamemodes, characters, maps, weapons, and gadgets

and of course accomplishing the game's final task: To have a fun free-to-play game with balanced multiplayer mechanics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has its core multiplayer features:
Multiplayer Teams
Unique characters & weapons
Creative maps and gadgets
A challenging yet balanced level progression and currency system”

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

“No, you can expect the game to always be free-to-play!”

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

“Through the Community Hub and any other way I can get feedback. Through this feedback together we can create lots of new content and work to make sure the game stays balanced.

I'm happy to add suggestions such as:
New Characters
New Weapons
New Gadgets
New Maps
New Gamemodes
And anything else the community can think of!

If you want it, then please share it because I want to hear about anything the community has to say!”

Early Access 5.0

Note: If you're still running an older version of the game (see your game version at the top left) verify your game files by right-clicking the game, clicking properties > local files > and pressing "Verify integrity of game files". This should force Steam to download the latest updates.

Additions
  • New Game Mode: Operations
  • New Operations Map: Sanctuary
  • New Door Type: Unlockable
  • New Enemy AI: Mini Arachnid
  • New Enemy AI: Large Arachnid
  • New Enemy AI: Slug

Balancing
  • Increased Discharge Cannon range from 7m to 10m

Changes
  • The ship when loading into The Valiant now says "The Valiant" instead of "U.S.S AES"
  • Servers now display what they're hosting (The map & game mode)
  • Bullets no longer effect physics like props and curtains as a test to see if it reduces crashing
  • The main menu bin is no longer clipping in the floor ramp
  • Increased the height of the spectate camera
  • Servers now include basic information at the top above the chat
  • Increased lobby refresh rate from 0.5s to 0.2s
  • Create room screen now features the map "U.S.S AES" displayed as "USS AES" since that is the map's network name and what will be shown on the servers list
  • Made player camers more centered on the player
  • Increased occlussion culling to static level props, reducing GPU usage (Plainly: Reduced graphics card stress)
  • Added lightmap to Sanctuary map as an experiment to reduce GPU usage, if successful may add to other maps
  • Reduced flash intensity for the sake of not blinding players on the new map, with the added bonus of the standard game mode feeling more eerie with less bright flashing
  • Changed bullet tracer & flash color to red
  • Guns no longer consider aliens and players as solid objects and therefore the restriction of being unable to shoot while too close no longer applies to them
  • Changed the order in which game modes display, prioritizing the functional ones over the currently non-existant ones

Fixes
  • Fixed glitch where when the host left the room the player still saw themselves as being inside of it even after being kicked out
  • Fixed glitch where loading certain network resources at runtime could cause the game to crash

I've met a lot of awesome people and hang out there all the time, as well as give in-advance discussions on upcoming updates.

Notes
The operations game mode has brought a lot more Host-focused content which means it's even more important than before that the host be someone with a decent PC and internet for the sake of keeping smooth gameplay. Due to this there are also several possible glitches that could occur should the host leave mid-match, so please be wary of this. Thanks.

The "Sanctuary" map for the new Operations game mode will not be added to the creation-queue just yet as it is still in testing. To create a server hosting this map you must create a custom room, random matchmaking can still place you in rooms with these new game modes but will not automatically host one.
