    Hello everyone!

    After the closing of our pre-order shop, we are now excited to announce the release date of the Closed Alpha:

    June 26, 2015

    We have processed the database of our pre-orders and we have sent an email to everybody who has pre-ordered the game (if you have pre-ordered the game and did not receive an email please contact us: info[at]eleon-studios.com).

    Currently, we are conducting a private playtest with around 15 selected testers in order to polish the game for the Closed Alpha release.

    If you have successfully participated in the Invite-a-Friend program in fall 2014 and you are interested in participating in the Closed Alpha, please contact us.

    Please find more information about the Closed Alpha below (note that some of this has already been posted in an earlier update):

    What is a Closed Alpha?
    A Closed Alpha is a very important step in game development. By participating in the Closed Alpha, you will be able to test the Alpha version of Empyrion to identify any problems or rough edges and help us balance the game. It gives you a chance to not only be the first to play-test a long-awaited game, but also to influence its development. Moreover, we will get an opportunity to receive important feedback that will make Empyrion even better.

    How long does the Closed Alpha run?
    We hope to have a relatively short Closed Alpha test period of less than a month, i.e., we hope to officially launch Empyrion on Steam’s Early Access mid-July.

    For what platforms will the Closed Alpha be available?
    The Closed Alpha will be for Windows PC only. You will need a 64 bit system with DirectX 11.

    Can I post screenshots and videos of Empyrion during Closed Alpha?
    We did not yet decide but will inform you when we send out the download link for the Closed Alpha.

    What are the next steps?
    On June 26, 2015, everybody who has pre-ordered the game will receive an email with further information and the download link for the Closed Alpha.

    Disclaimer (please read):
    1. Keep in mind that the game is still in early development and the Closed Alpha version is far from being a finished game which means you should expect bugs and disruptions in service. In addition, the content of the Closed Alpha is still restricted but will be extended over time.
    2. Only participate in the Closed Alpha if you are willing to accept possible bugs and you would like to help us build a great galactic survival adventure game. Otherwise, you can also wait until a more polished version is released on Steam Early Access.
    3. Keep in mind that all release dates are subject to change in the case of unexpected events.

    Thank you again for supporting Empyrion.

    Eleon Game Studios

    P.S. The screenshot shows you the interior of our new cockpit as a teaser.

    Great, yes got the email, really looking forward to the Pre Alpha testing.

    'Eleon Game Studios'; You have done a great job getting it to this stage in a reasonably short time, so congrats for that. Hope this game gives you a very successful product and gets us a very good game and community.

    I haven't been chatting much in here, just reading along to see when it's coming out. I hope you guys don't think me as a prude, but i'm more interested in single player mode. I left Wurm cause i worked on my own projects and got bullied around about not joining others. When I finally joined a group, i worked 10-12 hours a days to keep up the deed for someone else. I joined to play, not have a job. My present PC is brand new. (Win 8.1 64 bit) My old one shorted out on me. lol. I will help others when i can, but, hope the game really allows single player's mode. I've been waiting since I discovered the game back in november. I pre-paid in December.

    I was hoping for the game to release this week..

    But Eleon was very busy, preparing Closed Alpha and even adding more features. So I get why they pushed it back, and I can live with it.
    (Can't wait for the 26th of June! :D)

    You`re delaying the game too much... middle July EA on Steam, 26. June for us early supporters... Just before 26. of June comes on EA direct concurrent game (I won`t name it). There are also few greenlighted space crafting games, waiting for a EA release. I find that Empyrion has best potential from all other games (thats why I`m writing this here), but you know, people buy what first comes out, especially when there are not many games with space crafting thematic...

    Hardly a Delay. And it's 100% acceptable. I think the delay was justified and their working around the clock day and night and even weekends. I doubt their going to have much of a break for a long time. So you are just going to have to be patient.
