With the commencement of Steam’s Winter Sale, the action roguelite game “BlazBlue Entropy Effect” announces its departure from the Early Access stage in a month, with the full release scheduled for January 31, 2024. As another Early Access game prepares to fully launch, how has it performed? In the last month, the game has maintained a positive rating exceeding 95%, classified as “Overwhelmingly Positive,” and is currently on sale during the Winter promotion.
Even amongst renowned action roguelites, “BlazBlue Entropy Effect” holds a unique advantage in its “extravagance”. The game’s action is incredibly dynamic, with each character boasting a distinct style of combat and an array of flashy moves. It’s easy to get immersed in unleashing these extravagant combos, constantly amazed by the stylish action sequences that unfold almost inadvertently.
Why inadvertently? Firstly, because the gameplay is more accessible than it appears, and secondly, due to its plethora of characters and the vast array of combinations. “Characters” form the core of this game, each unique and independently mechanised. Moreover, characters can inherit skills from each other, supporting a fresh action experience in every playthrough, especially in the early to mid-game phases. According to official information, “BlazBlue Entropy Effect” will feature 10 playable characters and over 100 customisable moves upon its full release, ensuring an “abundant” gameplay experience.
A “Textbook” Example of Early Access?
In some discussions, ” EA (Early Access)” is often perceived as a debuff. For most players, a Steam game in Early Access is in a superposition of “Escape with money” and “The captain goes down with the ship”.
So, how did “BlazBlue Entropy Effect” fare in EA? Since its Early Access debut on 16 August this year, the developers have maintained a high frequency of updates. They’ve kept their promises by introducing two new characters in free updates in September and November. Furthermore, the team actively engages with players across platforms like Steam, Discord, Twitter, and BiliBili, integrating genuine player feedback into the game’s development. To date, the game’s positive rating has soared to “Overwhelmingly Positive” over the past month.
The essence of Steam’s “Early Access” feature is to provide opportunities for interaction between game developers and players. It aims to gather genuine feedback for development teams and ensure the final version of the game meets everyone’s expectations.
“BlazBlue Entropy Effect,” with its unique strength in “extravagant combos,” exemplifies an ideal Early Access journey. We wish this distinctive action roguelite game even greater success upon its official release, continuing its journey alongside its players.
