Thank you for your interest in Underworld Ascendant!
Note, we are no longer accepting new backers at this time. You can still purchase the game on Steam and stay up to date on progress via our newsletter.
Can I edit my pledge as an existing backer?
Yes! Existing backers can still access and upgrade their pledges through BackerKit.
When will Underworld Ascendant (and the prototype, pre-alpha, alpha, beta versions) be released?
We are aiming to release the full game in the second half of 2018. Pre-alpha Steam keys are available on BackerKit for the backers at the appropriate pledge level. Alpha and Beta versions do not currently have a release date, but we will announce when they will be available through our newsletters.
Will using the Steam key for the pre-alpha/alpha/beta versions lock me into a Steam version?
Nope! The pre-alpha/alpha/beta versions are completely separate from the final games, so downloading these builds will not affect how you receive your final game.
What’s the story with some people getting these backer-exclusive items?
The backer-exclusive items found in stretch goals and pledge tiers will be fun and distinctive awards, but we’ll work to make sure that these provide no competitive edge over players who might not have them, so as to keep the game balanced for all.
I have a favorite feature from the original games. Will it be in Underworld Ascendant?
Our team is committed to staying true to what made Underworld great. But we will also keep making it better! Letting us know what’s important to you is a great reason to join our forums at http://www.othersideentertainment.com/forum/
The Pioneer and Pioneer’s Progeny pledge levels mention getting the game at a discount. What does this mean?
If you pledge at the Pioneer or Pioneer’s Progeny level (and all levels above, of course) you will get a full digital copy of the game. The discount reference refers to the fact that at the $20 and $25 dollar levels the price is less than what we anticipate the full retail price will be upon the game’s release.
I get extra copies of the game with my $100+ pledge. Do these copies come with backer rewards or exclusives?
The extra copies of Underworld Ascendant provided at pledge levels of $100 or more are “vanilla” copies of the game. They do not come with any of the rewards that are provided at those pledge tiers, including things like in-game items or alpha/beta access.
I pledged at a tier granting Alpha/Beta/Pre-Alpha/Prototype Build access, and I’m on Mac/Linux. Will I be able to access these builds along with PC players?
When we release the prototype, pre-alpha, alpha and beta versions of the game to backers who pledged at tiers granting access to them, Linux and Mac users will get those versions as well.
