Otherland delays early access

    
20

Bad news, kids: Otherland is not going to make its projected August 26th start date for early access after all.

“There are many reasons for [the delay],” Drago posted, “one of them being the decision to set up US servers simultaneously, as this has been requested so many times over the last couple of days. The team simply could use more time to polish the game and get rid of bugs that have come up over the weekend.”

No new time frame for an early access launch was given, although the team said that it will be announcing the new date along with a feature video later this week. Previously, Drago indicated that early access would last for a half of a year and that the game is nearly feature complete. Early access should cost around $22 for the standard edition, although Drago has yet to commit to prices.

JamesCrow Koshelkin The fact is the company is incredibly ameish  They planned on running the game on EU servers only  for EA and that was an incredibly dumb idea, after nagging and pointing out the business pitfall of not hosting a NA server they waited till last sec to do it so  that’s why some ppl are salty making bad business choices and it not even out yet

Koshelkin i’m with you about that, and after all its just a game – people talking like game delay is the end of the world – some of use waiting for this game from 2008 and than it was cancelled and now all know about to return so give the company a little respect because if they didn’t bought it we would never getting OL

I don’t really understand the negativity here. These guys brought the game back from death and still you guys are complaining.

Considering the game was in digital death for a long while…? I don’t think anyone is surprised by a sudden last minute ‘delay’ from launching early access. I’m not going to call it something bad since they haven’t been charging (on steam, don’t know about elsewhere) yet I do find it a little… Suspicious to say the least given the claim it’s near feature complete and yet going straight to early access rather than release right after a stint of playing possum long as the game did.

I call that alpha, not early access.
