The Behemoth has announced that their upcoming strategy RPG, Pit People, will be available to download through Early Access on Steam and the Xbox One Game Preview program on January 13. Here’s what they had to say about it on the official Behemoth Blog:
After implementing our changes post-beta, holding onto the game in its current state just feels weird. The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. We feel that Pit People is at a point where we’ll confidently say there’s more than enough fun, content, variety, value and play-time to keep someone happy. We won’t sell something unless it meets these standards, so it definitely seems like it is time! This will also be a good opportunity to monitor the balance in the game and continue getting feedback from the gaming community as we finish up!
According to the developer, the Early Access version of Pit People will include “a sizeable chunk of the Story mission, plus access to several world maps (yes, there are more than one!), quests, Unfair Challenge against the AI, and Versus mode.” All of the game’s multiplayer modes will also be available including two-player cooperative mode and Versus Mode for up to four players.
As development continues, The Behemoth plans to add more quests, collectible items, story missions, and world maps to the game.
Players who give Pit People a chance in its Early Access will be able to do so at a discounted rate. The Behemoth will sell the Early Access version of the game for $15, which is a 25% reduction off its regular $20 price tag. And as you might expect, players who purchase the Early Access version of Pit People will receive the full version at no additional charge.
