Why Early Access?
Terra Invicta is an ambitious grand strategy game that can be improved through a long period of testing, support, and expansion in Early Access. Grand strategy games are complex, and player feedback is essential. We have experience working together with the community from our time creating the Long War mods, and we look forward to improving Terra Invicta together.
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
Terra Invicta will be in Early Access for at least several months, but possibly longer depending on how the design develops with player feedback.
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
The current build is already the complete game for all 7 factions. The goal of Early Access will be to continue to refine and polish the simulation of geopolitics and Solar System exploration, deepen the strategic experience and strength of the AI, and generally fix issues and bugs. We plan to add some content, but the vast majority of the game is already available.
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
The Early Access version is fully playable and has the gameplay features described on the Epic Games Store page. However, there are balance issues – we've provided gameplay tools that are too effective for their cost, or not effective enough. Let us know about them and we'll adjust. There are bugs and probably CTDs out there that we hope to discover with your help. There is still content coming in -- event illustrations and music tracks, in particular. We'd like to add more events and projects, too. Non-English translations of Terra Invicta are still being tested and improved. The game has a couple novels worth of text, and we know there will be some issues remaining – please be patient with us as we work on fixing problems and increasing translation quality. Some modding features are not fully automated yet and may require extra steps to use.
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
The price might increase during or after Early Access as work on supporting and expanding the game continues.
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
We will monitor our Discord for player feedback and suggestions. We appreciate all ideas, bug reports, and player experiences, and we look forward to making Terra Invicta a better game together.
