Update #27

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!

      Marc, you will get Beta access; it's just that if you bought beta access now it would cost more.

      Tempted to say this could be the best kickstarter game coming out... *drool*

      In the concept of the lore: I'd like it to be post-human as much as possible (as little human relevance as possible). The robots have their own infernal logic and factions and ultimate reasons being lost to time, as hinted by the narrative in the ks trailer.

      The $40 tier does give you access to the beta. At least thats what it says --->

      I backed the early bird discount at the start so I was not good to go. Then I upgraded to the $40 version in November. I could have sworn that at the time that gave me access to the beta, but the email did not give details. Now the website says I need $60 to be in the beta, so if I don't get into the Beta it looks like I paid $25 for nothing. Which would obviously be quite frustrating.

      @ Marc Hertogh: if you backed the right level during the Kickstarter, you're good to go. Those current prices on their site are for people who didn't help fund through the Kickstarter, they don't get the same good deal we did.

      Creator Marc Hertogh on May 21, 2013

      So I was an early backer of the kickstarter. I got in on the early bird special ($15). Then in November I decided to up it to get Beta access and paid $25 more through your store. Now when I look at the website it says you needed to pay $60 for Beta access. Can you confirm that I get Beta access?

      Hoping that the planned simultaneous release carries over to the alpha and beta as well.

      More EXPLOSIONS!!!! The key to high sales rate. Though I gotta say I am already loving the ones in there. It is just that knowing that it is pre-alpha it is obvious that some units lack impact for their weapons.

      hope linux version will be released on the same day as windows/mac one

      Woooooooooo! Here's where Kickstarter backfires. Now I'm stuck with all these awesome games coming down the pipeline. Sheesh, way to go the extra mile.

      If you were an early backer, go to store.uberent.com and upgrade there. Do not upgrade through Steam in June. Your existing purchase will not be able to be applied if you purchase through Steam.

      As for our Store, we haven't changed any content on it since approximately May 8th.

      For more details on upgrading, besides the store, you should read the top most entry at http://www.uberent.com/pa/faq

      I swear i saw that information earlier today on the storefront, i should have screencapped that, but whatever.
      Now if i want to have early access i will have to put down more money on Steam by buying the game there. Oh well, guess i'll pass on this.
      Man K! never ceases me to disappoint. :/

      Creator Uber Entertainment Inc on May 20, 2013

      Aureliano - it has never stated that. Our Alpha and Beta access has always been clearly stated. If you look to the right of this message at the backer levels, you can see that early backer beta access started at $40, and early backer alpha access started at $90.

      Creator Aureliano Fazio Baiz on May 20, 2013

      I guess they changed the information in the storefront, early today it said that everyone who pledged on Kickstarter will have early access to the game. That's quite misleading, oh well.
