Hack 'n' Slash bursts out of Steam Early Access on September 9

Double Fine is ready to take its hack-based adventure out of Early Access with some new content this Tuesday.


Double Fine is just about finished tinkering with its hacker-based romp, Hack 'n' Slash. In an email sent out late yesterday, the publisher confirmed that the game is ready to exit Steam Early Access this coming Tuesday.

The final 1.0 build will feature the game's final dungeon, meaning the adventure will have an ending in place. New secondary puzzles will be tossed in, as well. Hack 'n' Slash has come a long way since its Steam Early Access debut, with the most recent patch introducing Steam Workshop integration. In the spirit of the game's motif, modders can overwrite any script in the game to create their own extensive content.

If you can't wait for the finalized version to arrive, you can pick up Hack 'n' Slash now on Steam Early Access.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
