We're thrilled to announce that Cantata has now launched at full speed into Early Access. There is so much to see and do already including the first three acts of the game and the start of our modding journey but here is what we have coming up in store for you.

Why Early Access?

“With Early Access, we're hoping to refine the fundamentals of Cantata to make it the best it can be, while also improving on our sandbox mode with the community in order to make it into a compelling strategic toybox. We've got other features planned as well to introduce over the course of our Early Access period, and are excited to hear the community's feedback on things like passive abilites, ammo, and more.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We currently don't have a set date for the release of 1.0 - but we're not expecting the game to remain in Early Access for longer than a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Cantata will include all Campaign Chapters (Chapter 1-9), a fully fleshed out skirmish mode as influenced by community feedback, Online multiplayer, UGC units and maps, a wealth of polish and quality of life changes as well as expanded modding support. And more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access release contains Act 1 of the campaign, compromised of the first 3 chapters, and map modding, allowing you to create your own Cantata maps and scenarios to play on.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the 1.0 release will represent a substantial leap forward in terms of content and quality, to reflect that, and to reward players who support us in Early Access, you can expect the price to increase slightly once Cantata releases fully.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are at the exciting point in Cantata's development where we're ready to have players engage and give feedback on the balance of our game. We'll be improving Cantata and gradually rolling out updates over the months to come. This is a great time to hop into our discord, say hi and tell us what you think. We'll be hosting regular feedback sessions and Twitch streams as a studio. We'd love to see you there!”
