Vanguard Solstice - What Happens Next?

On behalf of the team, we want to thank you all for participating in our final (for now), public play test during the Solstice event. The feedback we have received throughout the last 6 months during First Strike has been invaluable and we’re excited to get back to work!

What happens next?
Good question.

The public playtests are over (for now), and First Strike has come to an end. We are excited to announce the beginning of the Solstice Era and with it the Founders’ Program. If you’re reading this, congratz! You’re officially a founder.

Now that you are in the Discord and have joined the Founders’ ranks, you will be on the front foot for all the benefits that come along with being part of the Founders’ Program including exclusive rewards and recognition, and to be in the spotlight to be invited into our closed VIP playtests. More information on how to qualify for these playtests will be announced soon, but know that by being here, you’re on the right track.

We want to ensure your voices are heard and your input taken seriously and building EVE Vanguard alongside you, the Founders, is very important to us. This is precisely why we’ve decided to start the Founders’ Program. We look forward to working with you in partnership and watching this community grow and thrive over the coming months.

Yup, we hear you! Up until now, we’ve been following the First Strike 6-month roadmap that was first shared at the end of last year. Now that the First Strike Era has ended and the Solstice Era has begun, you’re probably wondering what’s next. To shed some light on this, we wanted to share an updated roadmap that gives some clarity on where we’re headed. What you see here is a series of themes that we are exploring and will continue to explore with Founders like you. We are looking forward to diving in on these with you over the course of the coming months and seeing how together we help shape the future of EVE Vanguard.

Looking even further ahead, we plan to enter Steam Early Access when the time is right, but no dates are confirmed just yet. As of today, our monetization model for EVE Vanguard remains undefined while we focus on building out the broader gameplay experience and feature set.

However, we can confirm that one time purchase granting ongoing access to EVE Vanguard is part of our plan and we look forward to sharing more information on this in the future.

Again, we want to thank you all for your continued support and dedication shown to help shape EVE Vanguard. For now, sit tight and keep those suits clean.
