    Direct Contact - Early Access is almost HERE!

    Why Early Access?

    Early access allows the developers to have the game available to the public but under a banner that informs people it is still a work in progress.

    Direct Contact will have the community involved as the game is in development throughout the entire early access time frame.         
    The developers are wanting Direct Contact to be the best military simulation it can be and with your feedback, the Direct Contact title will triumph for many years. 


    How long will Direct Contact be in Early Access?

    Direct Contact will be in development for 12 months and beyond before it leaves Early Access. This time frame allows the developers to ensure that every feature they want added is set to go and that Direct Contact releases as a near flawless game with no game breaking bugs or glitches.


    How will the full release look different from the Early Access version?

    Direct Contact is going to be one giant Military arena! It will be a military world for you as the player to have full immersion and the closest authentic experience gaming on a PC can offer.
    Direct Contact has been built on the Unreal 5 engine and will bring you into the next generation of tactical shooters. You will have the ability to drive military vehicle, fly helicopters, call in airstrikes, control advances drones, play in PvP mode and simulations of PMC-style scenarios for you to test out your skills.

    Will Direct Contacts price change during and after early access?

    Direct Contact: Embracing the Future with Patreon and Introducing the Exclusive Founders Role to involve the community in developing Direct Contact.

    As "Direct Contact" gears up for its next giant leap, the team behind the much-anticipated game has announced a significant shift in their approach to community engagement and support. For the past year, Patreon has played a vital role in the game's development, offering a unique platform for fans to contribute directly to the game's journey. As "Direct Contact" continues to evolve, so does its relationship with its Patreon community.
    In December, the game is set to introduce the "Founders Role," an exclusive new tier on Patreon. This move is a change and an expansion of the game's community-driven focus. The Founders Role is designed for longstanding supporters and newcomers who wish to be at the forefront of "Direct Contact's" ongoing development. The Founders Role is poised to offer a more immersive and engaging experience for the community. It’s a channel where the supporters don’t just watch the game grow but actively participate in its development journey.

    The Founders Club, accessible through this new tier, will include secret channels and a Voice Chat (VC) option where members can have real-time conversations with the game developers. This level of interaction is a testament to the team’s commitment to maintaining a close-knit and engaged community.

    "Direct Contact" has been making significant strides in fostering collaborative partner communities, with BigD being a prime example of such successful collaboration. Our efforts are geared towards amplifying the reach of "Direct Contact" as it progresses through its development stages. This partnership not only aids in propelling the game into the spotlight but also enriches the overall gaming ecosystem.

    In addition to these community collaborations, many content creators have been brought on board. These creators are pivotal in fuelling the excitement around "Direct Contact." Their involvement enhances the game's visibility and provides a platform for these creators to expand their channels. This symbiotic relationship between "Direct Contact" and content creators is a testament to the game's commitment to growing alongside its community and partners.
