Developer Balancing Monkey Games’ civilization-building title Before We Leave has been an Epic Games Store exclusive for almost a year. But the exclusivity period is about over, and it’s headed to Steam! You can expect the game to arrive on the platform this May, precisely one year after its launch on Epic.
As far as games with post-apocalyptic premises go, Before We Leave is one of the sunnier depictions out there. Civilization has been wiped out thanks to a cosmic disaster, and it’s your job to rebuild it one step at a time. Build up towns, manage their resources evenly, and you might unearth ancient technology that can help your society leap forward. Once you cities are thriving, expand to other planets and build colonies there.
The Steam version of Before We Leave will include all the content that’s been released so far for the Epic version, including:
The Kraken Comes – An update bringing submarines, trading ships, the Kraken guardian, and underground shelters.
Over & Under – An update rolling out new overlays for better experiences, new UI and UX, new languages, and more.
Paving the Way – A visual upgrade, new roads, new resources, new type of Warehouse, new effects, and more.
Biomes & Beasties – Three new island biomes, new visuals, inclusion of animals, discoverable secrets, and more.
Upcoming update – Upon the game’s Steam launch in May, Before We Leave will be introducing new Scenarios and Weather that affects fatigue, crop growth, and movement speed.\
The Epic version of this game has sold over 50,000 copies on its own. It should perform even better on Steam. Before We Leave arrives May 14, at a price of $19.99.
