The early access version of the game is $19.99, and includes the survival sandbox mode now, as well as the story mode when it launches. The full release of the game is expected sometime this year.

Players are warned that while the game is stable and playable in its current form, the sandbox is constantly evolving. Features and systems may be added, removed or changed at any time. Purchasing the Early Access version of the game allows the team to polish aspects of the game and gather player feedback to drive development.
