Xsyon makes one final step towards full launch with the testing of bows and ranged combat

It has been quite a while since we last checked out Xsyon, the sandbox MMORPG set in a “post-apocalyptic fable” that has been in early access since December 2014. Those past seven years have seen the game shift along with updates, features, events (remember the mutant rodeo?), and even a full monetization model change. Now, it’s testing one last feature addition before it calls itself a fully launched game: ranged combat.

Xsyon players can now wield bows and fire pointy sticks at one another in the latest test server build and are being asked by the devs to provide their feedback on the forums. This new addition represents “the last major feature required to remove the Early Access label from Xsyon on Steam,” while future information about what else is in the works will be shared in the next few days.

This game was out years before it was in “early access”. I was playing way back at its origin and had high hopes for it. It had some cool things in it and was pretty damned immersive, but it simply lacked in too many areas to hold attention. All these years later it seems to still be in the same state. The main issue then was the same as it is now:

Development is glacier-slow and the lack of evolution is just not tolerable. It always felt like a developer’s hobby and never like a game that was going somewhere.

As soon as you get established in this game, there is NOTHING to do.. Except for run around and find other peoples decaying stuff and loot it.. Also once you build a structure, its just an empty shell, very little to nothing to make it feel like a home inside, no chairs, no tables, no nothing, just a big empty structure. This game is all hype, not worth messing with.
