Charlie Cleveland, game director at Unknown Worlds says:
“Moonbreaker’s Early Access launch is just the beginning. Given Unknown World’s history of iterating on our games while they’re in early access, we are committed to working closely with Krafton and Moonbreaker’s community to build the game into something truly special and long-lasting. We look at today’s early access launch as the first in many chapters and we can’t wait for our community to see what we have in store for this game in the coming months.”
Through accessible turn-based competitive gameplay, ongoing content releases, and customization, Moonbreaker will offer various gameplay experiences, especially for fans of tabletop and collectible card games. Players can lead their Rosters – Captains, Crew, and Assists – in fast-paced, turn-based encounters.
In the official announcement Krafton states;
“Every aspect of Moonbreaker is designed to capture the feel of a physical miniatures game without the real-world limitations. With detailed, intuitive, and constantly evolving painting tools, players can take their Unit customization to the next level. Players can paint their Units using traditional painting techniques (but with an undo button!) or marvel at beautiful paint jobs created by professional miniatures painters.”
Players can also experience the world Sanderson created through “Moonbreaker: Tales From the Reaches,” a special podcast series written by New York Times best-selling author Dan Wells. Players can now listen to the first episode, “Extilior’s Story,” in-game or on digital podcast platforms, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeart Media, Amazon Podcasts and Stitcher.
A total of three audio dramas will be released throughout Moonbreaker’s inaugural season with additional ones planned for each subsequent season.
