Stormblood launched in early access today, and the servers are getting bodied. As I see it, we wouldn’t have constant lag, frequent disconnects and players forming massive lines in a desperate attempt to get a quest done if Final Fantasy XIV didn’t make such attractive expansion packs.
Fortnite, a building survival game developed by the folks at Epic Games, will enter Early Access on July 25, the publisher said today. It was announced on December 10, 2011, so it only makes sense that it’d enter Early Access now.
As I’ve said on this site before, I used to live on a boat, but it wasn’t a sailboat. Playing Sailaway, a sailing simulator that came out on Steam early access last week, I’m learning what it could have been like if we’d had sails: bigger waves, the same absurd amount of ropes, and a lot of new challenges.
Quote is a game about eradicating knowledge. Specifically the knowledge locked away inside books. Why bother re-writing history when you can just destroy it instead?
Pit People, the latest game from Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth, begins with a planet-sized bear crashing into a planet-sized planet, transforming it into a wasteland plagued by storms of green bear blood rain. Then things get weird.
While playing Astroneer, I kept messaging my colleagues about cool ways it had killed me. It was a morbid thing to be excited about. But a satisfying death is the hallmark of a good survival game, and, even in its early stages, Astroneer has a lot of them.
Genital Jousting, a game about dick butts penetrating each other, slithered its way onto Steam early access earlier this month. Since then, it has accrued 600 reviews, 93% of which are positive. They’re also pretty funny.
Genital Jousting is a game about dick butts penetrating each other—with consent, of course. It is now out on Steam’s Early Access for program $4.99, and it looks incredible. (NSFW warning.)
Battlerite is an absurd name for a game but never fear because it’s a really good game! It’s a team based action MOBA by Stunlock Studios in early access for the PC right now. And it’s managed to tickle an itch for mayhem I never knew I had.
Divinity: Original Sin II launches on Steam Early Access on September 15. Players will be able to experience the opening of the CRPG sequel’s campaign and put their skills to the test in the player-versus-player arena.
Released yesterday via Steam’s Early Access program, Giga Wrecker is a messy little puzzle platforming game with messy dialogue, questionable physics and some strange design decisions. Other than all that, it shows promise.
In 2013, Lionel “Seith” Gallat got our attention with footage of his one-man game, featuring a tiny mouse on a big adventure. Three years later, Ghost of a Tale is a playable Steam early access game, and it’s even more impressive.
Space dogfighting fans are in for a treat this week, as House of the Dying Sun, previously known as Enemy Starfighter, has emerged on Steam early access. Man, it is pretty damn good.
I’ve been playing a few Early Access games on Steam that I’m excited about. I thought I’d report in on them.
Crate Entertainment first announced Grim Dawn, a Diablo-like RPG using Titan Quest’s engine, in January 2010. Two years later, they collected over half a million dollars with a successful Kickstarter campaign, and later put the game on Early Access in 2013. Now, after half a dozen years, Grim Dawn is getting released.
A couple of days ago, technical experts confirmed that the Xbox One version of Ark: Survival Evolved runs like ass.
Layers of Fear, a promising horror game about a tortured artist, is leaving Early Access on February 16 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Patricia took a look at the in-development version of Layers of Fear last year, and having played it for myself, I can back her up: it’s terrifying.
Years of Puzzle Quest, Candy Crush Saga and Bejeweled have all been preparing me for this moment. Now is my time to dominate. To stand over the battered and broken gems of my enemies in Force of Elements.
The technically free-to-play online multiplayer-only Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex shooter that Luke Plunkett was so bummed about went live on Steam Early Access this morning. So far learning to play is much more entertaining than actually playing.
Released last year as a fan game for Rooster Teeth’s hit animated webseries, RWBY: Grimm Eclipse returns as an official four-player co-op action game on Steam Early Access, and it’s a blast.
