Thea 2: The Shattering released into Steam Early Access

Take a turn in the dark lands.

Polish-British indie developer MuHa Games, the creators of the well-received strategic survival game Thea: The Awakening, have launched its sequel, Thea 2: The Shattering, via Steam early access. The early access version provides players with the core game experience, including co-op multiplayer.

Thea 2: The Shattering continues on with the first game’s innovative genre hybrid, with elements of turn-based, 4X strategy, survival, RPG and a card game, to a new and polished level. Thea 2 aims to build on the best and most distinctive of these aspects, providing more content, enriched and enhanced gameplay, as well as new and innovative ideas. Players take on the role of gods, overseeing the actions of their tribe of followers, while navigating a procedurally-generated environment. You can decide on your favoured play style and build on it during the adventure whether or not you wish to simply explore the world as nomads, take on all comers as a warlord-led army, or master the art of diplomacy. An atmospheric musical score and moody visuals provide a perfect accompaniment to a carefully crafted Slavic narrative.

Fans of deep strategy will have access to hours of challenging entertainment, with the entire game hopefully slated for late 2019.

The early access release includes all the core game mechanics: including exploration, battles, resource gathering, research and crafting. The main quest and a number of side quests will be fully playable. Fans of co-operative play will be pleased to know that co-op modes have also made it into the early access build.
