Developers False Prophet recently announced the release date of their grimdark turn-based tactical strategy game on Steam early access. The tactics RPG BEAST arrives on October 25th, 2023 on PC via Steam. Be part of the game’s development journey as through its full release around 2024.
BEAST is a dynamic and brutal gridless tactical turn-based RPG where moral choice during battle influence gameplay. You play as Anton, a veteran long presumed dead before returning from 10 years of being an Ottoman slave. His Carpathian homeland is feebly reigned by the demented prophet-king, its lands ravaged by raiders and cursed with a hellish plague. Everything he loved and cherished is either gone or has changed beyond recognition.
Unique Beast System
Exercise or exorcise your inner Beast – you decide. The Insanity system pushes players to make difficult moral decisions during combat.
Insanity of the Dark Ages
Atmospheric, story-rich grimdark world inspired by Carpathian legends. There is only evil – greater or lesser.
Brutal and Dynamic Melee-Focused Combat
Command your squad in fast paced, gridless, turn-based tactical battles. Advance and survive intense and visceral encounters.
TACTICS RPG BEAST EARLY ACCESS ANNOUNCEMENT
Early Access and Content Creator program announced!
We’re very happy to announce that you will be able to play BEAST through Early Access from October 25th! If you’re not only a curious player but also a content creator, we’re happy to tell you that we will be opening our Content Creator Program from that same day as well but you can already get in touch by signing up here!
Why Early Access?
We want to make sure we create the best possible game for fans of turn-based tactical RPGs.
Early Access allows us to be close to our current and future players who will be able to join our journey of completing our first game. Having our foundation solid and validated by our BEAST community before we launch the full game is our highest priority.
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
We are very excited to go on this journey where there will be frequent updates to the game, community surveys and insights into our development and how your feedback is vital in all of it. We consider our Steam forums and official Discord channel our prime channels to talk with us.
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
The EA version is currently in Alpha (early) state and contains a chunk of the game with over 20 playable missions, 2 main characters, 7 enemy classes, 11 enemy types and 40 weapon types. Many hours of replayable fun awaits! More languages are coming later this year as well.
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
We’re committed to 2024 so it’s months rather than years.
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
As this is truly an Alpha version of the game (which means actual early code) there is a lot of stuff planned to be implemented, fixed, updated, balanced and optimized before full release. You will hear temporary music, voice overs and sound effects. You will see strange animations & graphics and you’ll likely be able to exploit combat systems at times. The full game will include side missions, additional story missions, more customization, enemies and much more. If you’re looking to be able to get in early and help finish a dark tactical game you’d want to play, this is it!
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
Yes, the “Loyal Edition” which we will talk more about shortly will only be available during Early Access and will include the game, digital artbook, wallpapers, unique weapon, equipment skins and soundtrack (content will be able to be downloaded as they become available) for a special price as a thank you to our early adopters.BEAST – Steam Post
