How to turn Experimental Branch (and older versions) on and off?
NOTE: The instruction below also applies to selecting some older versions of the game. You might find it helpful if the new update breaks compatibility with older saves but you want to continue building the old settlement even though the new content is not there.

On December 17, 2021, we deployed Update 1, and added the “Old version 0.0” branch.
Everyone who purchased Timberborn Early Access can play on Experimental Branch but you should be aware of the unfinished content and bugs. If that doesn’t scare you, follow the steps below. The experimental branch is only available in English.

  • Right-click Timberborn in your Steam Library, select “Properties” and then the “Betas” tab.
  • Pick “Experimental Branch” from the drop-down menu. The game will update itself and will now be launching in Experimental Branch until you change the branch again.

Note: saves used in Experimental Branch are kept in a separate folder (by default: C:\Users\[user]\Documents\Timberborn\ExperimentalSaves). We strongly recommend starting a new game.

Please post your Experimental-specific feedback, suggestions, and bug reports in the dedicated subforum HERE! Thanks.
