Early access is the new beta, apparently. QC Games’ co-op action MMO Breach will go straight from last weekend’s limited alpha test to early access launch — theoretically letting everyone in — in the span of just 11 days.
You’ll need to pay to get into the game on Jan. 17, though a full free-to-play launch is scheduled for later in the year. All options for pre-order packs can be found in the Breach shop, ranging in price from $24.99 to $99.99. You’ll need to pick them up before 11:59 p.m. CDT to secure all the bonuses.
Both Magicman and I spent some time in Breach over the weekend, with Magicman doing a First Look of his experiences. I’d say we’re both generally positive about the game, though there were a few hiccups in the alpha version we played over the weekend. Hopefully, QC Games can get everything on track during early access and have a swell F2P launch in a few months.
