What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been in Early Access since July 2019. Since then, we have published 12 major updates that make Killsquad better every day. Early Access allows us to work directly with you, the community to make Killsquad the best possible game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For us, getting feedback and raising review scores is our primary focus, not timing. Our goal, if all goes well, is to leave Early Access during this year 2021.”

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

“Killsquad today is almost double what is was when it first went into Early Access. We plan to keep the same trend. In the next few months, we will be adding a new playable hero, new weapons for this hero, a new biome for the Wasteland world, a new progression system for your hero, new endgame features... in a nutshell, together with the community and the invaluable funding that Early Access brings we are completing our vision to try and deliver the perfect Sci-Fi coop action-RPG.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Game is getting close to public release, so it's mostly complete: 4 heroes, +30 missions, +80 weapons, quests, 5 planets for you to explore...”

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

“At this point we are not thinking about price policies as our focus is experience and community involvement. That said, most likely price will rise in the late stages of Early Access as we lowered the price intentionally during Early Access to reward the community.”

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

“We have a living community on Steam forums, we do weekly Dev Diaries with game news, we have a Discord server... if you want a game where your voice is heard, you've come to the right place.”

Roadmap

About This Game

Welcome to Killsquad: a co-op action game that blends twin-stick shooter, hack and slash and drops in a dash of character customization & progression. Join us on a journey to five planets full to the brim with enemies for you to annihilate. Choose your hero, select your skills, weapons, gears and talismans, and unleash hell through waves of relentless enemies and fearsome bosses.




Killsquad deliveres frantic, direct, skill-oriented control on keyboard or gamepad. Shoot fast, dodge fast, or die even faster. Our core are short, 10-20 minute adrenaline pumping contracts you can enjoy solo or with up to 4 friends in co-op. So it feels a bit like a twin stick shooter. Or a hack and slash. Or a top-down dungeon crawler. Or a sci-fi bullet hell. Well, it feels like Killsquad. And it's a lot of fun to play, solo or with others.







Killsquad features four hero classes for you to choose from, each with their own weapons and skills. These combine melee and ranged characters to fit different playstyles. Along your adventures, you'll be able to acquire and equip powerful upgrades for each of your skills, which activate during your contracts. And, if you survive, claim your bounty to spend it on tons of new equipment, such as weapons, power-ups and gear, or cosmetics to show off.






Fight your way through +30 contracts in the Campaign Map, visiting five planets along the way. Jump in with your friends or with any other bounty hunter. You can come to the aid of another squad by joining them mid-mission in real time. Cooperate to complete each contract or compete between each other to earn the highest scores.






Obtain weapons and gears with unique characteristics that affect the skills of your hero. Earn the trust of the Unseen by finding their Talismans: strong and complex artifacts with exciting passive effects. But be wary, these abilities at first will be detrimental, but through effort and killing lots of monsters can level up to turn into powerful items. Use everything in combination with your skills and upgrades to create game-breaking builds, and make the heroes your own.






But this party would not be complete without the main course: the enemies. Hordes and waves of disturbing enemies will make their way to you, clawing and bitting till there's nothing left. But do not worry, you will be fine. It is the bosses which will make you tremble. More than 15 bosses will put you to the test, each with different sets of mechanics and unique ways to be beaten.
