The Anacrusis tops 200k players as roadmap reveals upcoming improvements
Stray Bombay announced player numbers and plans for The Anacrusis.
The indie developer says that 200,000 players have battled through over a combined 1 billion hostile aliens, including 3,264,650 special aliens killed in the first week of Early Access/Game Preview on PC and Xbox consoles.
“Seeing the community jump feet first into the Anacrusis in this first week has been fantastic. We’ve seen a huge surge in players from Game Pass and lots of positive responses from PC fans as well,” says Chet Faliszek, Stray Bombay’s co-founder.
“We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and all the feedback that’s come in has been hugely appreciated. We’re continuing to create more game content and refine what’s there as we work on new features like mod support and the upcoming Challenge Track,” he adds.
Stray Bombay has released a roadmap detailing short-term improvements and long term plans for The Anacrusis. Hotfix 1.2 recently improved the Episode 1 finale, UI bugs, login issues, and more. Meanwhile, the team is working on a major update that includes new and updated perks, flaming goo, fixes to the Spanish localization, an in-game language selector, and fixes for Xbox Series X and Series S performance.
The Anacrusis is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC through Steam Early Access. It’s included for free with Xbox Game Pass.
