Best Place To Keep Up To Date On News - DISCORD.GG/AFTERSHOCK

Hello Everyone! If you havent already please read the previous post, we recommend you do so before reading this. As you know we have been working on our own Launcher. We have good news, everything is on track! We are really happy with the progress being made both in game and on the launcher. But this means we will be stepping away from focusing our updates here. We hope to post weekly updates on our discord and on the launcher news feed. Currently the team have done alot of the core features of the launcher, they are now currently working on the social features such as the profile pages, friends list, chat ECT. Thanks to everyone who has supported us with this change off steam, we will return to steam on full release meaning the game will no longer release in early access on steam. We feel like the EA system on steam isnt what we want for our game. We would much rather work closer with the community to build the game the right way.

DISCORD:
https://discord.gg/aftershock Thanks for reading, I will be pinning this as our last post here on steam for now. We will be posting our updates elsewhere. ~ BLACKBOX

BLACKBOX - LAUNCHER COMING OUT 31/03

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the latest update of everything AFTERSHOCK. We have alot of information to share so lets get started!

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
We have officially decided to change our name from Focus Studios to BLACKBOX. This decision came up when deciding the name for our Launcher, FOCUS launcher just didnt sound good. Along with the new name we also have some new names to welcome. - Aidan [Programmer/Launcher Team] - Steven [Programmer/Launcher Team] - Dom [Servers/Launcher Team] Be sure to give them a warm welcome :)
BLACKBOX LAUNCHER COMING IN LATE MARCH
If you have backed the game you will be able to recieve the Launcher for the game in Late March (Do note the testing is set for before MID 2018, the launcher is being sent out prior for us to get things ready). This also does confirm some of the rumors going around, the game will not be releasing into early access on steam, it will be released as a full game title on steam once its ready, testing will be reserved to everyone who backs the game, that means we are cutting ties with steam for now, we will not be using their platform just yet. If you have any questions about this contact me or join our discord for more info. https://discord.gg/aftershock We hope you are just as excited as we are for this launchers release, it will support any future titles by us. More info will be posted as time goes on.
BACKERS UPDATE
We also have some good news for our backers. If you back the game, you are guarenteed access to testing. We hope to start testing before MID 2018.

Here are some photos of the work done in the art department currently: Kind Regards, BLACKBOX

LACK OF UPDATES - ANNOUNCEMENT #AFTERSHOCK

Hello Everyone! Sorry for the lack of Posts here on Steam, we will be resuming back to updates on average every two weeks starting in Febuary. We have been discussing with our backers about how we want to handle the games testing. We have come to the conclusion that we will be creating our own launcher which we can produce keys so that they can be activated by our backers exclusively (Much like how EFT system works). This means that if your pre order you will be guarenteed a spot in testing. As for the first testing build that is still a WIP, we will be updating more here on that. Thanks, Sam LEAD DEV
