DRAGO Entertainment has announced that the Unreal-powered Client Action MMORPG Otherland is now available on Steam Early Access. Players are able to explore a “Multiverse” of virtual worlds ranging from Fantasy to Sci-Fi based on Tad Williams novels. After two CBTs, Early Access is the final step in the journey towards full release in the beginning of 2016.
“As our commercial release draws near, we decided to go Early Access on Steam because it allows us to better involve the community into the polishing process,” commented Lucjan Mikociak, CEO of DRAGO Entertainment. “Make no mistake: There are still a ton of bugs to fix and we are still working hard to improve all aspects of the game – but we believe that Otherland is a far cry from other games that run under the Early Access banner and has already been offering PvE and PvP fun for many weeks. With the ongoing support of the community we are creating the game SciFi Fans have been waiting for!”
Revenues derived from Early Access will flow right back into development, allowing for additional time to balance and optimize and polish the game before the intended Release in early 2016. Otherland is now on available as a “Buy to Play” title on Steam with servers in Europe and North America. The “Starter Edition” is priced at $19.99. The Deluxe and Collector’s Editions that feature additional character and item slots, in-game currency and character skins are available for $29.99 and $49.99 respectively minus a 15% launch week discount. As a special “thank you” to fans, the Collector’s Edition will feature post-launch access to an exclusive bar that offers an additional quest chain based on the novels with unique rewards as well as two daily quests to collect resources. Optional paid and free DLC’s will be released over the coming months.
The Otherland MMORPG is being developed by DRAGO Entertainment in Krakow, Poland, on behalf of the Otherland Co-Production GmbH, produced and co-published by IME GmbH.
