Last Days of Old Earth leaves Steam Early Access today into Full Release! (Video)
Many generations ago, the sun began slowly dying, and in turn society too began to weaken. Over countless millennia, resources have dwindled, civilizations have collapsed, and population numbers have fallen.
During Last Days of Old Earth’s time in Early Access, players have learned how to customize armies and forge grand strategies by choosing between dozens of heroes and units. They’ve mastered special abilities, such as sneaking up on the opponent’s hero to assassinate them, or dominating the skies to strike at the heart of the enemy forces from the air.
Thanks to the support and feedback of the players, today Last Days of Old Earth has concluded the final stage of its Early Access period. With the new patch and the recent addition of the single player campaign, the game is now complete, though developers Auroch Digital will continue working closely with the community to ensure Last Days of Old Earth is the best strategy experience possible.
The recently added campaign is set in a far future, where The Skywatchers are one of the last remaining tribes of humanity and players witness their challenging journey. This long travel through glacial wastelands is called the Northwalk, where The Skywatchers desperately struggle to find a new home that can sustain life. But the cold is not the worst enemy out there, something else is lurking…
There are whispers of strange machines out in the wilds. Their plans are unknown. They are the Automata.
The Story update was the last of the major updates following the initial Early Access launch. With this new content, players meet key Heroes such as Seibal, a soldier who have survived for many years alone, and Chanal Goodgrass, a fighter who gambles with her own life readily for the benefit of the greater good.

More About Last Days of Old Earth
THE FIGHT FOR A DYING SUN
There is no space for defeat. Defeat means death on the battlefield or the end of our search for the last rays of a dying sun. We must escape these bitter, glacial wastelands and find a new home. A new future.
Last Days of Old Earth is a turn-based strategy game set in a far future world where the sun is dying. The remnants of humanity must migrate once a generation towards the equator where it is still warm enough to sustain life.
Last Days of Old Earth invites you to become the leader of the human Skywatchers or the robotic Automata, two fundamentally opposed factions. In a hostile environment, where natural resources are almost depleted, you must fight your way to survive for one more turn. With scarcity goes rivalry, and only the law of the wild applies in this icy and desolate world.
◾Explore the frost-covered ruins of the far future, discovering settlements and ruined cities of a once-thriving cilization. Discover and exploit resources to build your armies and defeat your opponents.
◾Play as the Skywatchers Clan, the last inheritors of the once-great human legacy, or as the mysterious Automata, the robotic sentinels created by a vanished civilization for an unknown purpose – two different factions with very different play-styles.
◾Play with your customized powerful army decks or select pre-made ones. Build specialized decks or find the right balance between heroes, infantry, artillery, air and armored units, then take on opponents both online and off.
◾Follow the iconic leaders of the Skywatchers Clan through a full, story-driven, mission-based single player campaign, revealing more about the unique lore of the game.
◾Fight your opponent’s army in thrilling turn-based battles, where smart tactics and clever deployment can tilt the odds, even against foes with superior numbers.
◾Sneak up on your opponent’s hero to assassinate them or destroy building facilities to thwart your enemy’s best laid plans thanks to stealth mechanics.
◾Strike at the heart of your opponent’s forces from the air, softening up their armies or send out aircraft to scout and investigate unexplored areas of the map, quickly revealing the enemy’s plans.
◾Upgrade your building structures with new facilities and defense systems.
◾Deploy 24 unique heroes to lead your armies with powerful game-twisting special abilities.
◾Heroes and Units have special abilities: use them to your advantage and discover the best synergies and tactics that suit your play style.
◾Make smart use of terrain! Climb hills and mountains to gain increased line of sight, and hide in forests and ruins to shield your forces from attack.
◾A skirmish mode that uses a randomly-generated map system, offering a different theatre of war every single game.
◾Challenging but 100% fair AI opponents.
◾A rich multiplayer offering, to take the hard-earned skills from single player, into the online arena.
