Public Early Access scheduled for the 2nd of February

Postby potterman28wxcv » Thu Jan 21, 2016 3:09 pm

Chris just announced on Facebook that the public Early Access will happen on the 2nd of February 8-)

GRIP Facebook wrote:Hey GRIP nation

Just an FYI that our target launch day on Steam early access is February 2nd! Not long now!

To those of you who are playing the private release, prepare for a big list of additions and improvements/fixes.

This is our biggest patch yet, and we're excited to see how the gaming community reacts to GRIP once we launch. Just keep in mind that this game is in early access, so many things will change and improve. Just give it time émoticône wink

Thanks for the support so far, and we look forward to hearing your feedback next month!

-Chris and the GRIP team

Would it be possible to get a rundown of what's gonna be in this patch? I know the Tank is slated for it, and presumably some fixes to tracks and maybe a bit of work on physics. What else?

Or is that being kept secret on purpose?

Also will this be 1.0.5 or 1.1.0 or something?

Also do we have a price-point?

We release patch notes every time we do a patch. You'll just have to wait :P I can say that there are quite a few additions and improvements though. You guys should like it

And actually no, the tank is slated for mid February, not in this launch patch.

Not sure what version number it will have. Maybe early access release 1.0.0

Price is $16 USD

We're thinking the price will increase as content flows in, but not by too much. We want to keep it reasonable

You've made an amazing job so far, and the tank car looks really good. Can't wait to see what's coming next month. ;)

Well, gee, I don't want to always be the jaded cynic that I am, but I would certainly hope that most of them will be "the biggest yet" as you start filling in the game. :P
Unless you want to separate "patches" from "content updates". Hm, actually, both have negative subtext, "patch" implying there was something wrong, "content update" implying there was missing stuff. Let's just call any update "this will make it more awesome v.N". PR is everything.

As for the reception... this is gonna be one of the earliest of the early accesses, and there's quite the fatigue going on lately. So you know...

Hmm there has been no mention of online mode anywhere in the announcement.

As far as I know, no online mode is planned for the public Early Access release on February.

As Chris said, online mode will come later in the development.

I can't wait for it too (gonna organize some tournaments when it kicks in ;) ), but everything has to come in the right time :)

Aw that's too bad D: I'm sure there will be lots of other great additions with this release to keep us happy in the meantime :)

yeah, unfortunately online play won't be for a while. It's not all that easy to implement, and takes time.

This patch ( :P ) will be a nice one, with plenty of good stuff, so it should tide you over until the next one one in February

As for early access fatigue, it seems the sales numbers are still going strong, but for specific genres, or games that are obviously polished enough to make an impression. We think we'll be alright, but we're using a wait and see approach and not speculating too much.

Is that a new track I see in one of the screenshots? If so, I'm just gonna have to say that I'm... Veeery impressed by how fast you people are building this game. You know, after all those early access titles that have sat there with no updates for many months or even years.

Edit: It might also be a track I just haven't seen myself in videos, but nonetheless, what I said above applies to you.

Were you already able to implement split screen? Steam just have local co-op tag.

It looks like part of the track they used in the original teaser of the game (that isn't in the current private build), so I wouldn't be surprised if we get a second Jahtra track popping up on February 2nd (I honestly am just speculating but it seems awfully suspicious).
