So, do we have an actual working game?
+1

I keep seeing some on-website browser things, but I can't see anything about the actual game.

Which phase is the game in? Aka, if I buy "beta 1", will I get access right away?

The game is in pre-alpha development.

The browser thingy you saw is for domain and settlement selection. Mayor and above can pick their land and settlement.
The rest gets to look at the map and explore a future starting location.

By buying a pack with Beta 1 access you can play the beta as soon as it starts.

so, still in pre-alpha, and releasing this year?

It was never going to be releasing this year. That was nothing more than a wild and crazy guess, which should have never been said. There is no official or unofficial date for when the game may launch. Basically don't expect it anytime soon. We should hopefully see Pre-Elyria this year though.

It'll be launched in the early 2020s, if anyone tells you a specific year or quarter just dismiss it. Even the devs don't know.

To quote my fellow ambassador about estimates and dates for this topic:

Oh... wow! That far off?! OK, fair enough :)

It's impossible to make any guess.

Let me echo and amplify this.

The studio keeps internal goals and dates but they don't share them with us because they don't want to make promises they can't keep.

What we do know is the sequence of releases that are dependent on one another. Currently, the only things left between where we are now and a playable game for some portion of the paying public are Domain and Settlement Selection and Personas. I think they might also be trying to get the chat integration into the website as part of Personas, but it's been a while since they talked about that.

Regardless, the main thesis is:

Everyone here is guessing blindly.

If someone guesses that we will see release in 2019 or 2029, please treat that with healthy skepticism. The only people who can give remotely reasonable estimates for release are Soulbound Studios and the Two-Fold Queen (blessed be her name). And presently, neither of them are talking about launch.

We currently don’t have any timeline or date for which this game will be released. No year, month, day, quarter or anything currently.

It would take a miracle for it to be released this year. It would have to be the fastest Alphas and Betas ever. Exposition is set at 12 weeks, and before that we have to do Kingdoms of Elyria. KoE doesn't start until after Alpha 1. And we haven't even started Alpha 1.

Such a simple change, yet they forever leave it there.

Will launch in 2024 at the earliest, you heard it hear first.
