Road to Release
It has been a few months since the last development update. From that time to now, a lot of work has been completed, and this article is going to be a summary of the current progress and the future of the project until the first release. The reason for this lack of news is the change of the criteria regarding the general visual quality and the visual quality of the vehicles.
New tools have been added to the development pipe; these new tools allow to increase the visual quality of the models and without spending a lot of time in the artwork. You can see the looking of the new models:
There is a lot of new technology in the production pipe, including a custom grass system, all the tank behavior, sounds and more things that will come.
As a preview you can see in the following videos, the behavior inside a tank and the sound & effects, including audio delay:
There will be a specific article explaining the release and the future development steps after that, but, to summarize, the game will be released in an early access stage. This means that the game won't be completed, and the development will continue but with real players playing the game through the alpha and beta versions until the complete release of the final version after all.
The estimated date for the early access is February 11th of 2019. It is the intention, but in the end, it is an estimated date so it could be delayed. The release will be of the game Steel Gear: Stalingrad, that will be the first step in the project.
The development goals before the early access release are to implement a playable multiplayer experience with the game basics and two tanks, the Soviet T-34 and the German Panzer IV. After this release more tanks come with the time, you can check the complete list of Steel Gear: Stalingrad here.
