Steam Release Information

Read about it here!

 

It has been 14 months since our first public announcement. The effort of 25+ developers, untold gallons of coffee, making thousands of new friends, and putting in tens of thousands of hours of gameplay testing, and were about to make our momentous launch on Steam, this December 15th, 2015.

 

The time has come, the Founders have laid claim to their titles, have rolled with us through thick and thin, and now we march out together to bring this to the world.
As of Midnight PST November 30th 2015, we are ending pre-purchasing of Squad. You have between now and the end of the month to pre-purchase the game at the Squad Leader Founder level, which grants you access to the following perks on Steam:
  • Founder Patch in-game on your soldier (Delivery date TBD)
  • Founder Tag in the Community Forums
  • Exclusive Alternate Weapon Skins (AK74 and M4)
  • Digital copy of the Squad soundtrack
  • In-game name in Credits
Or at the Rifleman level, for USD 30.00.
We would like to thank every backer and founder that has helped us up to this point, without the financial and moral support of each and every one of you, development would have not been possible.
This next very important step to Steam Early Access launch will rely very heavily on this community to ensure all the newcomers experiences are as great as the ones we have already had over the Alpha period.
On Steam launch, those that have not pre-purchased will be able to purchase Squad and all future content for USD 39.99 via Steam. Going forward all content, past and present, will be open to all players.
For those that have backed us and pre-purchased, you will be receiving your Steam key via Email to redeem on Steam. So please check the Alpha Portal closer to release date.

 

In summary, there are 2 dates for you to remember:
  • 30th November - End of all Pre-Purchasing
  • 15th December - Release of Squad on Steam Early Access, retailing at USD 39.99.

Offworld Out.

We'll be here just like we've always been, just open those floodgates and we'll be happy to have those noob squads gleefully running overtime  ^_^

This is the time to recollect our patience, our support; and head into this next phase of Squad with an open mind. Lots of changes ahead and lots of people. From old PR players to brand new folks. Let's all make this a good next step..

Second. EAmageddon is nigh! 

 

Its gonna take every last one of us to get that awesome community/teamwork first impression that gets people hooked. We've had the trial run for this when Closed Alpha hit, so we know what to expect when the waves of new players hit. Lets try to police up after one another when it comes to the new guys and try to keep your patience checked.  We were all new once too!

you can still prepurchase the game for $30.  End of the month, you wont be able to, you'll have to wait for Early Access and pay $40 on steam.

Going to be bittersweet.  Hope there isn't too many toxic people joining the ranks but a bunch of new players and funds going to a deserving developer is a good thing!  Grabbin' my bottle of LSA for that HMMWV .50 in anticipation :3

Hello guys!

 

I've pre purchased Rifleman package, so how can i get my key? The first post states it will be distributed over the Alpha portal, but i have no idea what it is. The only think i have is Thank you message as confirmation of pre purchase.

I think Rifleman tier purchases will just receive their code via the email used for the purchase.

 

Get before / on the release date, 15th.

I'm gonna have to copy and paste welcomes to the newcomers haha... Maybe I can setup an auto reply to every newcomer :D

Either way I will be there to welcome all these strangers into our house!

I am apprehensive but excited at the same time.. Do the Dev's have enough moderators for the influx of new players?
