Project Gorgon is officially in early access on March 13th

Aw yeah.

It’s happening! The official Project Gorgon early access date on Steam is Tuesday, March 13th, which means that owners will need to log in on Steam and new people will need to… well, buy the game on Steam to start playing. Hey, let’s be fair, you’ve had a lot of time to try the game’s free testing before now. If you’ve forgotten all of the long-term implications of these changes, the developers have offered a helpful outline of everything changing.

Take note of the fact that this shift means that the game is moving from its alpha phase to its beta development, which means fleshing out, refining, and expanding the game more than introducing whole new ideas. Yes, that means probably slightly fewer crazy new transformations. We’ll all have to find ways to continue living. You should still check the game out when it’s live on Tuesday, especially since it’ll natively run in your operating system… whatever it is. (On desktop, we mean. We can’t help you with your phone.)

Weird, can’t find a press release for it yet. Did MOP jump the gun or get some exclusive info? o.o

Edit: https://twitter.com/GorgonMMO/status/971188819235098624 guess this mentions launching this week but not a specific date.

If you don’t like it don’t play it. Seriously you have made it quite clear you don’t like this game.

Might be the point I finally jump in.

Up to you. There’s still a lot of work to be done to balance and really polish the game. Mechanics are in and it’s definitely fun to play as is. Beta is probably a good time to jump in and really see the community and UI elements evolve.

I never minded the look of the graphics (I was totally cool with how Asheron’s Call looked), my issues tend to come down to stuff like lag.

Different studios handle the ping from their US server to Australia differently.
EverQuest 2, does a great job. SWToR, went out of its way to make things terrible.
RIFT was alright, LotRO really isn’t.

Ah, the curse of being Oceania area. Good point. I know their servers are located in Florida if that tells you anything.

I know that ping in US and Canada is about 80-100 ms consistently.

Side note though, if you bring it up during beta, it’s probably something they could definitely look at ways to mitigate for a more pleasant experience.

Cool, been waiting for this. However, I’m pretty hooked on RIFT PRIME atm. I’m sure I’ll fit some Gorgon in. I need to just sleep less!

I tried this. It looks like a huge turd, which is the main reason I can’t get into it. I.e. It looks worse than EQ1 did on release. It has some decent ideas though so I might try it again, but I found it a struggle to get into and a bit of a death simulator.

I tried it a few days ago, it’s not ready for Early Access at all, unless they make the EA free, they will get bombarded with bad reviews.

idc if it’s star citizen or project gorgon, early access state does not begin purely when going live on steam.

if you are selling access to your game before it’s gold it is in early access, regardless of being on steam or some arbitrary milestone pumped up for marketting purposes.

that being said, p gorgon being on steam could get me on board but depends on various factors and my gaming plans are kind of if anything overbooked for a while to come. but i’ll keep it in mind when there’s another lull in the action :)
