QA - AFTERSHOCK

Hey there survivors, we recently asked you for questions on the discord about the game and put our answers together for you to take a look at. Thank you all for the continued support.
FAQ: Q: When will the game be released? A: There is no set release date for the game. Although the game is planned for Early Access in late 2017 to early 2018, Focus Studios will not guarantee any dates. Q: Is this game multiplayer? A: Yes. Q: How many players will be in a server? A: Server sizes include 8, 16, 32, and 64. Potential larger and smaller servers may be available after final release Q: What is the backstory to your game? A: Please read the summary on our indiedb page.(edited) Q: How many guns are there and how differently will they perform? A: There will be approximately 60 different weapons(Not this many on launch, this is how many we hope to once reach). Guns will perform similarly to how they do in real life regarding recoil, accuracy, etc. Therefore, many same caliber weapons will be far different from each other (i.e. Saiga-12 and AA-12). Q: How big is the world going to be? A: The first map will be exactly 8km by 8km in size and will be set in the Canadian Shield. Other maps at with varying sizes may come in the future. Q: Will there be vehicles? A: Yes, there will be all kinds of vehicles ranging from motorcycles to off-road vehicles. They will be found all over the map. (SUV, Van, Tractor, Go kart, Sedan, buggie, quad bike, motorcycle, bike) Q: Is the game story based? A: The game will have two sides with a detailed backstory that can be read on our indiedb page. However, the game will not be story based as all multiplayer games will be different and the open world will allow for player decisions.(edited) Q: How many members are there on the dev team? A: Yogen, Liam, Sam, Calvin, Corvalho, Allan, Hoang, Navaro, Ryan, Rob. Ten members in total. June 9, 2017 Q: How much will the game cost? A: The game will cost $15 USD, this was changed due to people believing that $10 was too small. Q: What platforms will the game be released on? A: The game will be released on Steam and potentially other smaller platforms.

Crafting Update/Announcement! #AfterShock

ATTENTION SURVIVORS! First of all before getting into our update we would like to thank the following people for support us on patreon so early on! Now onto the Major Announcement! After recieving countless messages and comments about the ongoing idea of crafting we have decided to do it, this is a big deal to us as it changes the way the game can be progressed when surviving in game (Do not we arent saying this is original as it has been done before). We have designed a system which will be accessed on the main inventory hud on the left hand side, this system will have different tabs like:

[Weapons] [Armor/Clothing] [Building] [Tools] [Cooking!]
Thank you so much for staying tuned, we will either make a new post or update this one once the UI is finalized and ready to showcase! This also means we are one step closer to the gameplay reveal, we want to explain why there hasnt been any yet, as some of you know around 8 - 10 months ago we switched from Unity to Unreal Engine 4, this was large leap for us and alot of people left the team due to not wanting to switch, this was a struggle and alot of progress wasnt made for the first 7 months, only in the last 3 months has the progress been skyrocketing forward! Thats why we appreciate all the patience, i also want to note to people that we havent set any date and none has been set for the past several months, we only have goal dates we strive to reach but they arent guarenteed hense why we dont share those dates with you! We are doing our best here to make the game we all want, so we appreciate all your patience and kindness for the past year. Kind Regards, Sam LEAD DEV

But please only do this if your interested in supporting the game :) Thanks to tainted for pledging first with $9USD! Attention Survivors! We have just setup a Patreon page and we need your help! We have been getting alot of messages and comments (Mainly on our AfterShock Discord which has been a huge success and thank you so much for that!) about wanting to help support the game or get access early, so we have set up a Patreon so you can do that! The main key point for us to help speed up development was by creating our cheapest tier this:

Survivor
$5 or more per month - Access to aftershock 5 days before launch - Access to a full copy of the game on launch Also we are overwhelmed with the amount of support as of late so from the team at focus studios,
