Seeing this unsightly thing in my Steam library is an affront. Momma told me never to tell a lie, OKAM's Momma would be turning in her grave to see this still printed front-and-centre on their page on Steam, centimetres from the 'buy this game' button:
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“Of Kings and Men is planned to release the final version and leave Early Access after 1.5 to 2 years”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“The combat system will be extended to feature Horses, Squads, Crossbows, Spears and Throwing weapons, as well as Siege Engines
Players will be able to design their own weapons by combining different parts.
The game will hold tournaments and competitions with ranking systems
Players can work together to build castles, establish diplomatic relations to other player factions, implement a feudal hierarchy (with a few players playing as Kings), running large player-built cities, run industries, command an NPC workforce, trade, upgrade production cycles, and fight as mercenaries for the different factions.”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“At Early Access, the game contains the combat system and various game modes for it, as well as an early implementation of the war system; which will allow players to recruit armies, wage war against other kingdoms, and fight as a soldier or mercenary within those battles.”
Halfway through EA and still don't have everything they said would be in at the launch of EA.
And look at the list of promises of things that *will* absolutely be in the full game. Wowee! Customisable weapons from parts? Players working together to build castles? Running large player-built cities? Run industries? NPC workforce?
... new devs do know that this is how the full version is still described on Steam right? Or are they waiting for people to talk to them on Discord about it one by one?
Also Momma would slap me if I told a lie like:
WHAT THE DEVELOPERS HAVE TO SAY:
None of the people who wrote the text that follows are developing the game, so they are not 'the developers' of the game currently being sold.
