The blocky world simulator ECO has bidden farewell to alpha and moved right into beta today. The beta transition also coincides with the title’s release on Steam early access, where ECO can be purchased for $30.
The beta launch comes with Patch 7.0, which adds definable districts, a more balanced world generation, redesigned plant simulation, password protected servers, reworked tutorials, a better-looking HUD, support for mods, and several new plant and animal species.
“We’re putting together a road map with what’s to come, and look forward to deeply involving the community as we keep development moving, tons more we want to do,” the team said.
Massively OP recently explored ECO with its developers. If you missed that stream, we’ve got it for you below!
