‘WARMACHINE: Tactics’ Early Access Available on Steam July 9!

BELLEVUE, WA, July 8, 2014 – Privateer Press Interactive announced that the WARMACHINE: Tactics Early Access pre-launch build will be available tomorrow, July 9, on Steam. Demonstrated at PAX East, E3, and Privateer Press’ own Lock & Load GameFest, WARMACHINE: Tactics funded through Kickstarter less than a year ago. The campaign reached nearly 300% of the project’s goal and remains in the top 40 funded Kickstarters of all time. The closed beta for Kickstarter backers launched on schedule on June 25.

Based on the award-winning WARMACHINE tabletop miniatures game, WARMACHINE: Tactics is a turn-based, squad-level strategy game for PC and Mac developed in cooperation with WhiteMoon Dreams and published by Privateer Press Interactive. The multiplayer build pits any two of the four included armies in a deadly close-quarters encounter, featuring a variety of steam-powered robots and spell-slinging warriors.

“The launch of this build marks a major milestone in the development of WARMACHINE: Tactics,” said WARMACHINE creator and Privateer Press founder Matt Wilson. “By interacting closely with our community of supporters, we’ve already gained invaluable feedback that’s helped influence the design of the game. WARMACHINE: Tactics exists because of an amazing level of community support, and the community's input will be instrumental in polishing and perfecting the game experience we’re striving to deliver.”

WARMACHINE: Tactics for PC and Mac will be available for download through Steam Early Access in a pre-launch Deluxe Edition that includes the game and future access to a special selection of downloadable content (20 additional units to build armies) upon release for $65.
