It took a while but Ember Knights is finally on Steam Early Access. With this, players can now go on an adventure in the Prime Worlds and fight Praxis and his hordes. It has players shape their character according to their tastes and defeat increasingly tougher enemies and bosses.

It was back in June 2021 when video game publisher Asmodee Digital announced that Ember Knights was coming to Early Access in the fall of the same year. By December, it was clear that the launch wouldn't be happening in 2021. It turns out that a decision was made to move the Early Access date to spring 2022. In a post, developer Doom Turtle made the ultimate decision for the better.

For the Early Access, here's what players can look forward to:

  • A solo or co-op adventure for up to 4 players.
  • The first 3 biomes:
    • Scoggfirth

  • 22 monsters, many of which with their elite and champion versions.
  • Several mini-bosses, each with 4 versions per biome and one big area boss per biome.
  • The first two weapons: the sword and the bow
  • A powerful arsenal consisting of 12 base skills, including frost wall, arcane bolts, blast bomb, and knight’s charge.
