Playful Corp. announced today that its free-to-play open world sandbox game Creativerse will be leaving Early Access on May 8, 2017. The game originally launched on Steam’s Early Access program in April 2014 and since then has maintained a “Mostly Positive” rating on Steam. Creativerse is currently available on PC and Mac via Steam Early Access. In addition to the official release date announcement we also received a new trailer today, which can be seen below.
CEO and Playful Founder Paul Bettner had this to say about the studio’s game and its reception:
“The response to Creativerse has been staggering, given our under-the-radar strategy for marketing during Early Access. It shows people are hungry for this type of game, one that makes it delightful and easy for anyone to build anything they can imagine. And it’s really gratifying to see how much our players enjoy being involved in the development process, as their feedback was invaluable in making the game what it is today.”
