What Is an Early Access Game and Why Buy It?

 

Early Access is a fantastic way for small developers to gain funding and showcase their work while still being able to develop their game. Early Access gives developers and their players the chance to test, play and help finish the game before releasing it fully.

 

In fact, many games in Early Access are not close to the finished product and are often in an Alpha or Beta version and will never see a release if it was not for the support of those players that purchase it while in these states.

 

In the past there have been many fantastic games released in Early Access that have gone on to be huge successes. Games such as PUBG, Temtem and Rust were released in Early Access and continue to have strong player counts and continued success.

 

What Happens to My Game If It Officially Comes Out?

 

One of the best advantages to buying a game in Early Access, is that when it is finally released you will still own the game and progress is often carried on into the full release.

 

Early Access often gets you the game at a discounted price, gets you a head start on those that wait for its full release and will give you the incredible opportunity to see the game evolve through its development cycles until its release version.

 

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Early Access List

 

In the world of Early Access, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

 

For example, games such as 7 Days to Die can take multiple years of development and set backs before finally being released.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

 

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

 

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

 

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

 

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

 

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

 

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

 

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
