After an admittedly prolonged amount of time and anticipation for avid fans, GunZ 2: The Second Duel will see an Early Access status tonight on Steam. The GunZ Team apologized about the wait, but promised that there would be retribution via a better game play experience.

“Waiting is over. We have received green light signal from Valve and fixed the release schedule right away. GunZ 2 will be released as an Early Access status at 5 PM PST Feb 17 2014. All the game features including auto-matching PvP mode, co-op PvE mode, and premium item will be open. However, the game service will be in beta mode meaning service stability is not fully secured. We will maintain the beta tag for several weeks or months depending on the service status.”

GunZ the Duel is coming up on a 10 year anniversary, which gives the team mixed, yet optimistic feelings about the release of Second Duel. Venister, CEO of MAIET said, “Though we’re nervous and excited to release and operate online game service on our own for the first time, it meant a great deal to us to prepare game service on Steam, one of world’s biggest game publishing platform.”

GunZ 2: The Second Duel can be found on Steam or at the GunZ 2 official site.

    such terrible game, EVERYONE LAGS, might as well wait for titanfall for better wall running and shit like that.

  5. arg on February 18, 2014

    servers will probably be down for a week or more lol

    • this is bs on February 18, 2014

      ..the game will not be playable for atleast a week, cause as time goes on, even more ppl are downloading and trying to play, which will stall, crashes the servers even more than now. So unless they add a bunch of new huge servers, it’s going to be unplayable for days if not weeks.

  8. takerukun on February 17, 2014

    hey update, yea its actually free though the service was taken down a few hours ago because matches weren’t working, the tutorial wasn’t working either so they have to fix these problems.

  9. Eviil on February 17, 2014

    Did you guys get to start downloading it? i’m in USA and the client is downloading from this post timestamp.

  10. Renegade on February 17, 2014

    Just go to the damn Free to play tab and look there, you cant even play right now cause they are increasing the capacity of their servers

  11. burnpenguin on February 17, 2014

  12. hm on February 17, 2014

    I don’t understand why it says greenlite by steam, but i search gunz, gunz 2. 0 results

    • Payback on February 17, 2014

      Probably region locked or somethng.

  13. Dreepatz on February 17, 2014

    If Steam version doesn’t get dedicated server and stays on peer2peer (like the European version is, which is not popular at all because publishers are kinda wankers) then GG, u can wipe your tears and wait for some other game as this will be total disaster. Not a single host can provide good connection to all the players that are playing specific match.

    • damn on February 17, 2014

      Im waiting for renegade x, if this game does not work out.

  14. shyt on February 17, 2014

    i search gunz on steam, 0 results lol

  15. lol on February 17, 2014

    I log into the website, it says its only for Europe…hm

    early access can be free if the game is f2p.

  17. Hydeon on February 17, 2014

    Hawken, CLR, 8Bit MMO, Smashmuck, Driftopia, March of War, just to name the current F2P Early Access games. Steam is growing its free to play market a lot in 2014.

  18. yo on February 17, 2014

    Wtf it’s not free…?

    • Zwei on February 18, 2014

      Yes it is, free early access.

  19. takerukun on February 17, 2014

    is five and no sign of GunZ 2

  20. takerukun on February 17, 2014

    oh hell no. early access is never free -_- i just hope this one is cause a few exceptions like archeblade is. i swear steam early access ruins things though.

    • Zwei on February 18, 2014

      Yep, one of the exceptions. Its free early access.
