Update #23

Mercenary Kings Hits Steam Early Access July 22nd

The wait is almost over! The Early Access version of Mercenary Kings for PC moves out on July 22nd!!

We are well aware that we're behind our schedule, but we believe it's for the best. Because we've sailed past our 75k goal, we decided to spend more time to work on the game (adding more levels and the online component have been time consuming).

The Early Access Version of the game will end up being a beefed up version of our first milestone.

Then, Early Access will allow us to follow our plan to keep working on the game until we make the best possible version of Mercenary Kings!

Check out the updated Mercenary Kings website: http://www.mercenarykings.com/

Thanks again for your support and your patience!

      @Hyakutaro: The Steam version of Mercenary Kings is also DRM-Free. You can play it without running Steam at all. However, in order to use Steam specific features (such as online play and achievements), you need to be running Steam.

      @draeron Yes, but the Humble Store provides you a DRM-Free version too.

      @Hyakutaro : the humble store pre-order is pretty much the same as waiting for the 22nd since humble store will provide you with a steam key.

      Personally, I'd rather have online play over nailing the release date :)

      That is awesome to hear! I can't wait to play your game when you guys release it out to the backers! Thanks again for all your hard work!

      AWESOME!!!

      The pre-order works through the Humble Store. Does that mean that backers will get Humble Store + Steam version too ?

      Also, speaking of ports, how's the Ouya port coming along? I know you weren't planning to release it at the same time as the PC version, but it's been a while since we've heard about it.

      (just answering to myself)
      Seems like the Mac port will be addressed after the original release (just saw the Tribute Games answer in the Comments section). Let's hope it won't take another year ⌒⌒

      @matthew : yes, the online multiplayer is already available in the closed beta (80$+)

      Creator Matthew Lam on July 5, 2013

      Will the "beefed up version of the first milestone" include online multiplayer? Would be cool if it did, though I can understand if it doesn't make the initial release. I'm just glad we're getting the feature at all. :) Still curious what to expect, though.

      Creator Yohmi on July 4, 2013

      By the way, what about the Mac (and Linux) versions ? I guess there won't be any early access for these, but are they pushed back for later, or being developed almost at the same time ?

      @Eric Payawal: The price for non-backers on Early Access is $15 (the full price, once Early Access is over, is going to be $20, so they get 25% off)

    16. Kuroneko%20thumb.small

      Creator Eric Payawal on July 4, 2013

      Out of curiosity, what would the early access price be for non-backers?

      Looks great, and I am always happy to wait if it means the final product can be better :)

      Creator Tribute Games on July 4, 2013

      @Ricardo 'Range' Vargas: Yes! Early Access is for ALL $15+ backers. It is your digital copy of the game. You will also get all subsequent updates until the game is completely final.
      @FuKuy: July 22nd at the latest, because we might try to crunch it a few days earlier for our backers ;).

      When are we going to receive our keys?

      Creator Ricardo 'Range' Vargas on July 4, 2013

      So just to double check to make sure I'm understanding. Anybody who was a backer gets a Steam Key now, and not just the ones who paid $80 to get into closed beta?

    21. Kuroneko%20thumb.small

      Creator Eric Payawal on July 4, 2013

      Woohoo! I'm looking forward to it!

      @Santo @computer_man20037 Everyone gets their keys and joins in on the fun!

      Creator Santo Guevarra on July 4, 2013

      So... The Kickstarter backers who paid more than 80 bucks got the closed beta and Steam buyers will get the early access vertion and the retail version at 10% off. Do the normal KS backers benefit of this too?

      Creator computer_man20037 on July 4, 2013

      Awesome to see this coming to Early Access on Steam... Is there a certain tier we needed to back to be able to play the game on Steam Early Access?

      Awesome video :D mouth watering graphics and gameplay…
      I'm glad you're taking your time, I'm in no hurry to play a game that's not finely polished ^^
      Anyway, thank you for the update, I can't wait for the final release :)
