We wanted to let you know that there’s going to be a small delay in us releasing Warhammer Underworlds: Online into Early Access which we had initially planned to be in the latter half of 2019.
As the year has progressed and the game has developed, we’ve been working hard to get the game into your hands as soon as possible. Our last closed beta was a huge success. There were limited spots that filled within the first hour, and we got incredibly positive and constructive feedback from the community.
Our original plan was to enter Early Access with two warbands and add two more warbands during Early Access, before the full release. During the closed beta, one of the key things we learnt was the need for more diversity in our roster of cards and warbands.
Bearing this in mind, we’ve decided that Early Access is going to be pushed back a few weeks, which means that it’s going to move into January 2020.
We’re doing this so that we can run more closed betas; this will give us more concise feedback as we add more content to the game while working closely with our fantastic community.
By slightly moving the date of Early Access release and doing these closed betas, we’re pleased to tell you that all four warbands: Steelheart’s Champions, Magore’s Fiends, Sepulchral Guard, and the fourth, unannounced warband will be available to play right from the start of Early Access.
Additionally, if you’re an Early Access player, we’re also going to be releasing some really great exclusive content in the form of four warband faction skins and two extra board appearance designs.
This is content that is only going to be available to Early Access customers. If you’re not planning to be part of Early Access, then rest assured, we won’t be increasing the price at launch, it just means that you’ll be missing out on the exclusive Early Access content.
Our next closed beta is coming up in November, and it’s going to include the Sepulchral Guard and all the cards that come with them. We can’t wait for you to see the skeletons in action!
We’re eager and excited to be working closely with you over the next few months, as we continue to make the best possible game together. We really value your feedback, and we’re anticipating great results!
