What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“SCP: Blackout will be early access to allow the community to play it earlier, while giving me feedback to help shape the game more. The more people there are trying out the game and giving feedback, the better I can add more things and increase the quality of the content. The primary reason for Early Access is to let me complete the Story Mode while getting feedback for the Survival gamemode.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should be out of Early Access somewhere in 2020 at the latest. It depends on how many new SCPs, areas, and side stories I add, (which I do a lot of as I get ideas or suggestions from the community) but I will also continue to update and add these things even after full release.”

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

“The full version will have the story mode completed and ready, as well as a bunch of new SCPs, areas, stories, secrets, and things to do. The primary goal is to finish the Story Mode, which has a ton of different choices and endings, but I also am working on other objectives to complete in the game and background stories to complete.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“SCP: Blackout is currently playable in a polished Survival Mode, with plenty of SCPs, secrets to find, a map roughly 4x the size of the demo and plenty of lore to find. There is alot to do and scares to be felt in Survival, with plenty more being worked on to be added over time.”

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

“The game's price will go up slightly over time, but I plan to keep the price relatively low for what this game offers. It should only go up a max of around 20%.”

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

“The community is and has already had vast influence on the game from over on SCP: Blackout's Discord server!

About This Game

SCP: Blackout is a Desktop/VR game coming out on Steam in Summer 2019. It is a surreal horror game with a branching narrative. As a new D-Class transferred to Site-50, you must decide what you want to do as you navigate through the facility trying to survive various malicious SCP entities, determining what choices to make, and collecting pieces of the story to truly understand what is going on.

In the story mode (Not yet available in Early Access), as you play you can listen to Dr. Millar or Dr. Slate, each with their own motives and goals. Each choice and path you make affects the facility and playthrough, leading to many different possible endings. Each time you play, more of the story will be uncovered, and maybe the best choices aren’t the ones so obviously presented.

For quick action an hard-core horror filled fast rounds, you can try the Survival Gamemode, where you are dropped in with the full facility to explore and escape from with smaller story with Dr. Harman.
