The spiritual successor to the Syndicate series receives a significant update – it enters final Beta stage and is ‘content complete’.
After 7 months in Early Access, the team at 5LivesStudios has launched an update today which delivers a content complete version of the game – the Beta milestone, playable from start to finish with all missions present. And to cap it off, the game’s full release on Steam has been dated – 28th August 2015.
Details of the new release follow, from the team at 5LivesStudios:
Dracogenics Tower Unlocked
The Gates have been opened to the final section of the city—Dracogenics Tower. At the northern end of the CBD, Dracogenics Tower is the corporation’s world headquarters, and the office of the CEO, Steven Dengler. If you ever want to take control of Dracogenics’ Monopoly on their sought-after Res-Tech network, you’ll have to climb the tower and say ‘hi’ in person—but don’t expect a warm welcome. This encounter will be the most challenging portion of the entire game, so don’t go up unprepared!
Tag Gets a Voice
Until now, Tag has just been some text on a screen, but now she’ll deliver key mission information over voice-comms. In addition to the intro and outro sequences, Tag delivers updates on the ultimate mission objective as you progress through the city.
Rather than just dumping you into the world oblivious, we now have a suitably cyberpunk introduction sequence upon starting a new game. However, if you’re anything like our lead coder Mike, and you hate story, feel free to hit the skip button.
Leaving Early Access
Entering beta is a huge milestone, but not has big as getting the game ready for the masses, and leaving Early Access. We’re announcing today that we will be entering full release on the 28th of August 2015. Of course, leaving Early Access is by no means a finish-line. Satellite Reign is hugely important to our little studio, and we’ll be continuing to support the game as long as necessary post-release, while also investigating new content and features we would like to add.
Thanks very much for all of your help and support over the past 7 months we’ve been on Early Access, and a huge thanks to those of you who had enough faith to back us on Kickstarter almost 2 years ago! We’re almost there now, so keep leaving your thoughts on the forums, and sending those bugs through!
