Early Access plans!
Ylands is a game that we intend to work on for many years to come. We have tons of ideas that we want to implement, but before we get to those truly special and unique ideas, we need to have a solid foundation to build on. That, for us, means Ylands 1.0, and that is exactly where we'll be when we leave Early Access.

Ylands 1.0 is planned to be released in summer 2018. Before we get there, we need to fix a lot of bugs, properly balance several game systems, and improve game performance and the multiplayer mode. But we'll also add some new features that we feel should be part of version 1.0.

Please note: even after that, you'll still receive regular, free updates and not much will actually change from your point of view.

So, here is what we are planning to add during the Early Access stage (in addition to numerous small features and improvements):


* NPCs
- scriptable characters from the editor
- humanoid enemies
- vendors

* Dynamic music system
- new extensive soundtrack
- music changing dynamically based on the current situation

* Whole new world in Exploration game
- new environment
- new enemies and animals
- new items and weaponry
- boss monster to fight

* Radical improvement of Editor scripting
- much more accessible, yet flexible, approach to setting up your own adventures

* Improved dedicated servers support
- improved tools

* Customizable Avatars

* Pets

In case you want to know more about any of these, feel free to ask on our forums at www.ylands.com/community or read our weekly Dev Diaries/Sneak Peeks where we regularly talk about upcoming updates.

Got a question. I've bought this game about couple of months ago when it was only available on the Bohemian Interactive website and just found out about the Steam version (thanks front page ads). Just wondering but if I bought the standalone version of the game, will I need to buy this game again to play with my friends on Steam?

You can convert the game to a steam copy, though I did not own a BIS copy so I'm not sure how.

It is a thing though.

Concerned about the NPC "enemies". I like to craft and build with the "danger" of crossing an animal preditors space. I just don't want to be attacked every few minutes by NPC's. I hope this coming npc update doesn't cause me to regret my purchase. I am, though, looking forward to playing your game as it is now. Thank you for your dedication.
