What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have big plans for VALHALL and now we are implementing them based on the new combat system core. As an independent team, we plan to use Early Access as a time to build the gameplay by adjusting it together with our community, to test and introduce new features. Warriors, thank you very much for the possibility to feel your support at this stage!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our aim is the best experience possible, you can visit the website and check out the roadmap. We want to be transparant with you, the plans may change. Putting timeline on an early-in-development game is very challenging. We’ve decided to keep our schedule fairly flexible so that the development team and community can best mould the game experience that we all want to see.”

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

“Full version will get more game modes, weapons and armor. We will keep polishing the combat system. Some of the planned features can be changed during development based on community feedback that's why the best way is to keep an eye on our roadmap on website.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the start of Early Access, there are:

  • Directional combat system allowing you to feel the fury of Viking battles.
  • Special movements like dodges and slides.
  • Throwing, chain lightning, ground shockwave and other Mjolnir features.
  • One-handed and two-handed axes, swords, fists, spears and other weapon types.
  • Dynamic weather.
  • And more.

All content should be considered work in progress.”

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

“With the development progress we can foresee the quality of VALHALL: Harbinger increasing exponentially.
Further game development, incl. improving quality and adding new content - can influence further pricing for new users. We would like to encourage our early supporters as well. The game price for owners will not change.”

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

“Overall, we want to create a new level of interaction between the developers and the gaming community.
We believe that mutual view to gameplay and game content as well as meaningful discussions, and community input are the best ways for us to learn what it is that you want to see and then produce it.

We have already established several avenues to communicate with our community, we constantly post updates about development on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Steam Community Hub, the game website and our Indiegogo page.
We want to note, that we don't separate ourselves and our community with a wall of moderators, members of the developer team can be found on any of these networking platforms. We constantly interact with the community and try not to leave any questions unanswered, as well as reading and considering all incoming proposals.

We have a number of innovative ideas for moving to another level of interaction between the community and our development team, which we have described above and many of which have already been implemented.

Moreover, we have created an ideas incubator where the best community ideas are added for their future development - all of which is evaluated by the wider community with help of the specialized tools.

Together we can create a VALHALL universe that each of us will truly enjoy.”
