Battle Brothers released to Early Access!


Battle Brothers released to Early Access!

Finally! After all that waiting you can now experience for yourself how it feels to get your men slaughtered and, in some rare cases, even emerge victorious in a game of Battle Brothers. We hope you enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed designing it!

Please keep in mind that this game was just released into Early Access and is far from finished. We consider it a solid foundation upon which we can now build a truly great game over the course of the next year.

Where to get it

The best place for buying the game is at our very own website. You’ll receive a Steam key with which you can start playing right away. In addition, you may leave a tip to further support us if you want.

You can also get the game on Steam itself, especially if you want the Deluxe Edition or Supporter Edition.

If you haven’t made up your mind yet you can find a description of the available editions at the bottom of this post.

Feedback and Bugs Reports

Head over to our forums at to share your opinion, tell us of your ideas and experiences, and give us feedback.

It’s pretty much inevitable that once all of you play the game a pile of bugs and glitches will turn up that we never experienced before. We’ll do our very best to fix any issues in a timely manner, but we also need your help.

Please report any bugs at our forums at and try to follow the guide in the sticky post.

Which editions are on offer?

Basic Edition
This includes the game in its current Early Access version and all future updates up to and including the full game release. It comes at a cost of 19.99$ – depending on region, your price may vary slightly. The best place to get it is directly at our website here.

Deluxe Edition
The Deluxe Edition includes the game in its current Early Access version and all future updates up to and including the full game release. Additionally, all buyers will receive the complete Battle Brothers soundtrack as a digital download once it is finished and released. The game already features more than one hour of music with signature tracks for all the factions and places. The difference in price to the basic edition will go directly to Breakdown Epiphanies, the musicians who are creating all the music for Battle Brothers. It comes at a cost of 24.99$ – depending on region, your price may vary slightly.

Supporter Edition
For those of you who really want to support us in the future development of Battle Brothers we also offer the Supporter Edition. Like the Deluxe Edition, this includes both the game itself and the soundtrack. In addition, you’ll get a digital lore book with a lot of background info about the world and its inhabitants, as well as our very first legendary item in the game, complete with a look of its own and a unique background story: Fangshire.


The Support Edition comes at 39.99$ – keep in mind this price is not about the additional content you get, but a chance for you to support further development of Battle Brothers if this is a project you truly believe in.

For all editions, please take note that both the soundtrack and the lore book are not yet done and will only be delivered once they’ve been finalized. You can expect them to be done at around the time the game leaves Early Access.

    Does this mean, we cannot get the supporter edition with a purchase on your side? This would be sad, cause i would have bought it here to support you and not steam…

    I bought through the website, because I cannot afford the Supporter addition atm and thought that it would be better for the devs if I purchased through their site.

    That said, I hope an option to ‘upgrade’ to the supporter addition becomes available down the line, because I want to support this game as much as I can, even if my current financial situation doesn’t allow me… at least for this month.

      It does support us more, so thank you!

      An ‘upgrade’ option is certainly something we could add.

        Would you rather potential “Deluxe” and “Supporter” customers wait til you’ve set this feature up, so that you get 100% of the difference? Don’t answer if you don’t want!

    I bought the Supporter Edition on Steam, but there’s no Fangshire in my inventory, so I’m assuming Steam messed up the downloads…

      … I would have bought it from the website directly if I knew I’d just be getting the regular version anyway and that it supported you more that way …

        No, we messed up. We apparently misunderstood how DLC (which the helmet is) needs to be approved for release separately as well, even if they’re not sold separately. You’ll definitely get the helmet, but it may take a day or so. Sorry for the inconvenience :(

          Wanted to ask the same question xD Great game so far. And shit happens ;)

    Congratulations on getting this far. I hope that the game is succesful enough for you to be able to work on it fulltime. :)

      Emm, just so you know. The presskit button has gotten pushed off the menu bar.

      Figured it out. Reducing the screen size moves things from the menu.

    So what version would you recommend to folks who like to support you & the game at best and could afford more than 20$ ? The regular one directly at the site via humble or another at steam ? Although I don’t care much about the ingame bonus item stuff – the mentioned compendium with additional background information sounds promising :)

    • May 1, 2015 @ 23:52 pm

      Hey Autarc,
      happy to hear that you want to support us beyond buying the basic game!
      We would definitely suggest the supporters edition on steam for that. Alternatively, you could get two basic copies of the game through the widget on our page and gift the second key to a good friend ;)
      Through Humble you can only get the basic game right now.
