Steam’s Early Access MMO Entropy Gives Players Some Space

Posted by Michelle Quillen Friday, December 13, 2013
Earlier this week, Steam released the latest title by the makers of Battlestar Galactica Online through its Early Access program. Entropy is an open-universe MMO that places gamers in an expansive cosmos, challenging them to both battle and cooperate with each other to hold up an interplanetary evolution.

Created by award-winning studio Artplant, Entropy spans more than 100 comprehensive star systems that Early Access players can explore to gather feedback for game enhancements prior to its full launch. Space-based dogfighting is a main component to the game’s quickly paced combat, while the player-driven collaborative element entails working with each other on managing trading and mining efforts to benefit the good of the galaxy.

The Founders program for Entropy makes three packs available to early adopters of this Alpha build: Colonist, Explorer, and Founder. All provide an abundance of benefits for players to get into the game, including generous starting funds, increased character slots, and exclusive skins. Full access to the game, updates, and new content are standard with every pack, and no characters or stats will be reset prior to full game lunch, allowing players to get a head start. The bonus with Colonist is 250,000 credits, Explorer grants its purchasers 500,000 credits and one ship from a selection of three different classes, and Founder owners start off with 1,000,000 credits, a bonus ship with its own unique class-specific skin, and two free Colonist versions of the game to gift to friends. The Colonist, Explorer, and Founder packs cost $19.99, $39.99, and $99.99, respectively.

Artplant’s chief executive officer, Jack Wulf, is anxious for Entropy’s introduction:
We’re really excited to finally unveil Entropy to MMO fans; it’s an ambitious title for us and we can’t wait to see how players react to engaging in player-controlled, intergalactic dogfights for the very first time in a space-based MMO. Launching through Steam’s Early Access programme, will help ensure Entropy connects with its emergent community and utilises players’ crucial feedback to enhance the incredible gameplay experience we’re building.
