New Dawn is now on Steam Early Access after two years in development. The game is currently in its “pre-beta stage” with many game mechanics considered to be complete and that there is “a solid base in programming” that allows new content to be added quickly.

The latest stable client is a work in progress and “many core mechanics and features are present and polished” but that players need to remember that “a Steam Early Access game is not completely finished, polished or fully optimized”.
