Xenonauts-2 Beta Date Announced!

Recommended Posts

The closed beta for Xenonauts-2 is due on 28th November 2018. Access to the closed beta is only available for people who backed our Kickstarter at the £25 tier or higher, with general access to the game coming when we launch onto Steam / GOG Early Access approximately three months later.

The purpose of this beta is to test and improve the game until we've got a sufficiently fun and stable game to put it out on Early Access. This means that the early builds of the closed beta aren't going to be a huge amount of fun to play, because that's the end goal of the beta rather than the starting point - at the start we'll mostly be testing that things actually work before we start tweaking game balance and all that!

The full Kickstarter update on the closed beta is here (although much of it contains the same info as my previous forum update): https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/69341191/xenonauts-2-strategic-planetary-defence-simulator/posts/2320147

Right now we're working pretty much flat out to get everything ready for the beta in just over a month. We won't be adding any big new features in the next month, we'll just be fixing up what we already have and polishing out the most obvious issues. I'll try to keep you all informed about our progress, but it'll be great to finally get people playing the full game and moving us towards the point where it's on sale for everyone!

Ninothree that´s a Beta. Beta´s aren´t fully playable and will change very often in Developement. We have to test all integrated things (Base, Inventory, Missions etc. etc. etc.). This will go as long the Game is getting upgraded to be stable and Early-Access Ready. It´s the same as in every other Game, but Goldhawk and some other small / medium Developers take time to bring up a very good playable game.

They aren´t like the most big Developers (for example EA) which bring a fully game and it´s in Beta status.

It will be exciting, to be part of the development of a game that has been on many of my computers since 1994, in its many iterations!!
