Project Update: Dates and Steam
Hey Everyone! As many of you may have seen last Friday during our LiveStream, we made some big announcements, and had another good Q&A session, complete with on the fly demos of what we were talking about.
The big announcement of course was our overall project timelines and Steam availability. First off, project timelines:
- Alpha will start to roll out this month, and a combined UberNet Alpha/Steam Early Access Alpha will start on approximately June 7th.
- Alpha access will run for the summer, until the end of August.
- Beta/Beta Early Access will run from September through the end of November.
- Finally, we expect to have our worldwide launch in December of this year.
We’re very happy with the speed we’re moving at, and are at the point where we feel we can start to lock down much more concrete dates for alpha, beta and launch. We’re looking forward to the next parts of development with more direct interaction with the community.
Steam access is a convenience for some people who prefer to keep all their game keys in one place. If you wish to move your key to Steam, you’ll be able to once the game is live on Steam. If you wish to continue to simply play though our own service UberNet, you’ll be able to. No action is needed at this time for Steam access. We’ll send information once Steam keys are available for use. It also means it’s our first digital distribution platform besides our own, which means another way for the community to grow further and bring in more players.
Watch the LiveStream here, and keep an eye on here and your email box over the coming weeks if you’re a backer at the alpha level ($90 +). We look forward to hopping in game with you soon!
