Today we are proud and exhilarated to announce that the time has come, and now we know the exact date.
Vagrus - The Riven Realms enters Early Access on Steam and GOG.com simultaneously on July 22 2020.
Thanks to all our crowdfunding Alpha backers and our demo testers, Vagrus has grown and improved massively in the last twelve months. We are proud to share that we kick off our Early Access journey with over fifty hours of available content that we look to expand further during our EA period, which is expected to last until the eventual full release sometime in 2021.
We took our time. We have added and improved features that, based on insights from our players, we felt are essential before entering Early Access, but we know that the game is in no way finished yet. We have plans regarding where we would like to end up by the time of the full release, big plans in fact, in terms of content, features, and polish. When you play the current build, keep that in mind - see bugs and less polished areas for what they are: potential to make the game even better. Your help by reporting those using our in-game tool (F1) and sharing your experiences on our Discord server (discord.gg/vagrus) will be essential in identifying and prioritizing focus areas in our development process.
We have compiled a short Q&A about the upcoming release that you might find informative:
Q: How much will the game cost?
A: The base price will be $29.99 with an initial launch discount. We do not have plans currently to increase that for the full release but with all the added content and features, it may happen.
Q: I have already bought my Steam/GOG.com key elsewhere but it says it’s locked. Why?
A: Your key will only become active when we release the game into Early Access, so on July 22. You will be able to access it right away from then on.
Q: How can I help before July 22?
A: Join our Discord community and help us by spreading the news about the upcoming Early Access release so that we can reach more people and learn about their player experience, which we can make the best use of during this EA period.
Q: There is a separate Vagrus - The Riven Realms: Prologue that is due to release on July 10 on Steam. Is that a different game?
A: After the success of our Demo during the Steam Summer Festival, we decided to make that free demo available for players in the long run so they could get a sense of Vagrus and see if it was their cup of tea. We wholeheartedly encourage you to try the free Prologue demo when it comes out to help you with your purchase decision.
Q: There is a separate Vagrus - The Riven Realms: Prologue already released on GOG.com. Is that a different game?
A: After the success of our Demo during the GOG.com Summer Sale event, we decided to keep that free demo available for players in the long run so they could get a sense of Vagrus and see if it was their cup of tea.
