Soul Axiom Update – 1.0 Release Date

By Rebecca Smith, 8 months ago
Official 1.0 Release Date
Hi all, now we’re nearing the end of Early Access development, we’re releasing the last few updates with minor bug fixes and improvements. We now have an official release date of 29 February 2016.. A Leap Day!!
We are still to plan one more update before the release so Early Access contributors still have time to join in the with finishing touches of the game. Gamers will also notice a dramatic reduction in file size originally from around 12GB to a much lower size of just under 5GB. This is mainly down to a major ‘behind the scenes’ optimisation pass.
