Earlier this year, we held a closed beta for Pit People on Xbox One and players had a chance to play our fast-paced, turn-based, co-op adventure to quest and explore, find awesome loot, customize fighters, and recruit strange species!
After this very helpful run in September, we continued development on Pit People with tons of feedback from the community. Next, for the first time ever, we will bring our game to Xbox One Game Preview starting January 13, 2017!
Our Pit People Xbox One Game Preview experience will include a sizable chunk of the Story missions, access to several of the world maps, tons of quests, Unfair Challenge against the AI, and Versus mode. You’ll be able to experience the game as a single player or in two-player cooperative mode. Additionally, versus can be played with up to four people in 2v2. All multiplayer modes can be played locally or online!
After implementing our changes post-beta, holding onto the game in its current state just felt weird. The core gameplay is complete and we’ll be adding content until the full version is released. We feel that Pit People is at a point where we’ll confidently say there’s more than enough fun, content, variety, value and play-time to keep someone happy. This will also be a good opportunity to monitor the balance in the game and continue getting feedback from you and the Xbox community as we finish up!
We’ll be continuing development throughout Game Preview which means things like more quests, items, story missions, world maps and other polish — except this time you can be right there with us!
As a thank you to those who support our first ever Game Preview release, and in appreciation for playing the game early during its development stages, there will be a $5 discount off the full release price! Pit People will be a low $15 throughout its time on Xbox Game Preview! Once the game has made its full release, the price point will be $20. Of course, if you purchase it during Game Preview the game will unlock all the features once the full release comes out and you’ll keep all of your save data.
To keep up with our game updates, follow us on Twitter @thebehemoth and the Pit People website. See you all in 2017 for the launch. It may be “next year” but it’s only a few weeks away!
