Dev Log #43: Closed Beta Testing; Release Date
« on: December 05, 2015, 06:13:58 pm »
Hi guys. It is my pleasure to announce that the game has now entered beta stage and will be released in full on December 21st 2015. As before it will be available on Steam and GamersGate, but now also on GOG.com.



In the following two weeks we will be doing closed beta testing to make sure the game has as few bugs as possible on release.

Also a little heads-up: at some point between now and full release the game's price will be increased from its early access/alpha price to its full price. Those of you who have followed us since the early days know well that the game has since grown in scope and quality far beyond that of the initial release.

Thank you all for being patient with us throughout the years, the long wait is now at an end.

No, but new buyers who didn't get the game during early access will pay full price.

Excellent news, Styg! Can't wait. Just one question. Will it support Steam Cloud? Since I'll be playing it on both desktop and laptop at work, it would be great if there was no need to copy paste my save files. :)

Hope the game does well. You deserve every euro earned. ;)

Woohoo!!!! I'm so excited!!!!! I've been checking the dev log every day for the past few weeks to see when the release will be! I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas present than Underrail!  :D

I hope the beta goes well, and I really really hope that the release goes well, too; you guys deserve a lot of praise (and money!) for the fantastic adventure you're blessing us all with!  ;)

Underrail GOTY 2015!  8)

Thanks Tchort for this glorious day!
Don't waste time on Underrail...



... use speedhack. Or Expedition's built-in 'speedhack'.

That's awesome! Really eager to play it.
Underrail is really a gem in that pile of high budge shitty games.
Underrail Alpha already gave me so much emotions that Fallout 4 could not even dreamed about that.
Good job guy!

Unfortunately, no. Save files were too big for Steam Cloud.

Are we gonna get a final batch of teaser pics before release, or maybe a launch trailer?

New screenshots have been posted in the Media section (http://underrail.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=41&Itemid=55) but you've already seen them all through dev logs. We're not going to show the very endgame or the secret stuff, you'll discover that on your own. ;)

As for the trailer, we'll have a new trailer by the end of next week probably.

Phew, I might be able to put a sensible post together now that the initial hype spike has dissipated.

First of all, congratulations on the release date - sooner than I expected! I kind of was expecting a delay to early 2016... ;)
It's going to be busy two weeks betatesting everything and preparing for the release.
