The Behemoth will launch Pit People’s “Full Version” on March 2

The Behemoth has announced that the “Full Version” of Pit People will be released for the PC and Xbox One on March 2. The turn-based strategy game originally launched in Early Access/Game Preview in January 2017, and the developer has been steadily adding new content to the game every few months.

This final update will be known as “Update 6,” and it’ll complete the story of Horatio and the Bear:

In the full release, the story is completed with cinematics and all, along with a whole new world map with 15 additional bonus missions. There will also be other changes, such as balancing improvements and polish, included in the update as well. An official changelist will be released with the launch of the full release.

A new trailer to celebrate Pit People’s upcoming launch has been embedded above.

The Behemoth will launch the Full Version of Pit People as part of next update in Early 2018

The Behemoth released the Xbox Game Preview/Early Access version of Pit People this past January, and after nearly a year of updates, the developer is getting ready to release the “Full Version” of the game.

According to a post on The Behemoth’s official website, the “Full Version” of Pit People will be available as part of the game’s next big update, which should arrive sometime in Early 2018:

So here’s a spicy little situation: We’ve decided that our next big drop will be the FULL version of the game! Yes, it shall be complete! You’ll be able to play through the story and find out what happens for everyone.

As we write this, we’re working on the last of the cinematics for the story campaign! This is the final push towards completing the game, alongside additional story quests and a new world map with bonus missions.

Since there’s so much involved with these last steps (VO, animation, level creation, music licensing, QA testing, etc), we’re not exactly sure when everything will line up for a full release date, but we’re shooting to release within the first few months of 2018.

Pit People is currently available for $14.99, but the price will increase to $19.99 once the “Full Version” is available. Thankfully, The Behemoth has added the game to Steam’s Autumn Sale, and it’s currently 20% off this week for PC players.

Xbox Store Today: Pit People, Rise & Shine, Dead Effect 2, more

Let’s switch things up for a minute and talk about today’s Xbox Games Store update.

The big news is that The Behemoth is ready to make Pit People available to Xbox One owners through the Xbox Game Preview program. The turn-based strategy RPG features The Behemoth’s distinctive hand-drawn, along with the acidic vocal stylings of Will Stamper. Pit People will grow throughout its time in the Game Preview program, and the developer plans to add more quests, collectible items, story missions, world maps, and other polish to the game as time goes on.

One other hand-drawn game will make its way to the Xbox Games Store today, as Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team has released Rise & Shine for the Xbox One. Rise & Shine is a side-scrolling shooter that SuperMegaTeam refers to as a “think and gun” that combines elements of “arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers.”

Finally this week, Dead Effect 2 will give Xbox One the chance to unwind and blast a zombie in the face using “countless weapons, gear, and body implants.”

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

Early Access release of Pit People will launch for Xbox One and Steam on January 13

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.

Pit People Hands-On Preview: Playing Co-Op Pit People at PAX West 2016


It’s no secret that we’re fans of The Behemoth here at Warp Zoned. So, of course, I made my way to their booth at PAX West as early as I possibly could. I was hoping to get a chance at their most recent game, Pit People, previously known as the very descriptive Game 4. I sat down with a buddy, grabbed my (surprisingly heavy) custom arcade stick, strapped on some headphones, and got down to cooperative business. (more…)

Xbox One players will get a full week, until September 15, to test out The Behemoth’s somewhat bizarre strategy game. A second Closed Beta, this one for PC players, will held at a later date.

And don’t worry, if you haven’t registered for a chance to join the Closed Beta, there’s still time. Head over to the and sign up today.

Pit People will be released for the PC and Xbox One before the end of the year.

The PAXpocalypse List: The Best of PAX East 2016


Believe it or not, we’re not living in a post-apocalyptic hellscape (depending on your political affiliation, insert your own Trump/Hillary joke here). But you’d never know it if all you had to go by was the 2016 PAX East show floor, which was overrun by dozens of titles that took place after the collapse of society… and a lot of them were pretty good.

But what if some disaster did befall the world and force PAX East attendees to forever wander the halls of the Boston Convention and Exhibition, feasting on whatever mac and cheese bowls or turkey legs they may find? That’s where Warp Zoned’s PAXpocalypse List comes in, because these are the games we’d keep playing if we could never venture outside again… (more…)
