    We have sent The Black Watchmen to Steam!

    After a successful playtest of the first 6 missions, we have made all necessary adjustments to the client and shipped it off to Steam for approval.

    Depending on the response time of Steam, we will be launching Early Access to the game between June 23th and the 30th.

    After your feedback from regarding our rollout, we have decided to launch all 6 missions at once on Early Access, and then follow the 2 week release cycle starting immediately. Meaning that from Day 1 of Early Access, new in-client missions and live events will be arriving every 2 weeks!

    We will provide a special Steam key to all our supporters from Kickstarter and all those who purchased Early Access on our store. If you need to update your email from that you used on kickstarter, please PM me or Anashel.

    Thank you to our playtesters and to all our Beta testers for helping us make our game that much better!

    We have been working on The Black Watchmen for over a year, it is time to share it with the world.

    EDIT
    We were approved to launch on Steam. You can find the page here.
    We plan to launch next week, just need to make a few final adjustments.

    Well, I can only think of one response that's appropriate for this news:

    Will we be able to start the season 1 missions immediately, or will we have to complete the missions that are currently on the client?

    Season 1 will start immediately. The Beta missions were only for the beta.

    Awesome news, congratulations guys! Do all Kickstarters have early access or was that a separate thing I'm forgetting?

    All Kickstater supporters will be given access to Early Access. We will send out Steam keys to all our supporters once the game is on Steam.

    By 'Those who bought early access on the store', do you mean anyone who bought a copy of anything in the 'Game' section of the store? So like, does the Special Ops package come with Early Access?

    Yes it will, anyone who bought Early Access, Team Edition, Field Agent or Special Ops will receive a Steam key as soon as we launch. Except Team Edition. They get two.

    lets say i just bought the dogtags... does that include 'everyone' that contributed during the kickstarter? or did you need to get one of the tiers?

    Important question:

    25 June 2015, 00:00 UTC?

    Very important question indeed. We will be releasing the game in the afternoon or early evening (Eastern Standard Time), so 25 June 18:00 UTC to 23:30 UTC, roughly. We will keep everyone updated throughout the day.
