Steam Hammer is a sandbox-style RPG with a Victorian steampunk setting. Today, developer Big Way Games announced that beta access is now available for the title. The beta access is available on Steam at a 50% discounted price of £9.99/$11.99. Players who purchase access will receive the full game upon launch at no extra charge.
The game will feature an open class system allowing the player to switch between the engineer, scientist, farmer, gunsmith, stormtrooper and sharpshooter classes at will. There are deep customisation options for character creation and an emphasis on player freedom.
Steam Hammer‘s combat spans over both land and air as the ability to use a steam jetpack to hijack airships allows for a variety of ways of engaging foes. Players can build factories, airships, towers, weapons and even terraform the environment to gain an advantage.
Steam Hammer will enter early access later this year, watch the beta announcement trailer below:
