's return to top-down RTS carnage, Blitzkrieg 3, has launched on Steam Early Access today. , the game's selling as a complete product, without the initially planned free-to-play elements.
“Currently the Early Access version includes fully-functional multiplayer game mode with certain restrictions in the progress, and one of single-player historical missions, which gives a good overview of how our single-player campaign will looks like," Nival writes on the game's Steam page.
Eventually players will get a singleplayer campaign with three different factions, a general system that offers leaders with particular combat specialties, and a more robust multiplayer suite - think daily challenges, social hubs, that sort of thing. Early Access for Blitzkrieg 3 will last "approximately 4-5 months", with a full release planned for this Fall.
the game back when it was planned as a free-to-play title, and for the most part enjoyed its uncompromising, hardcore solo missions. The much-hyped 'asynchronous multiplayer' I'm slightly less convinced by, but I'm intrigued to find out how Nival plans to develop that side of the game.
