July Update


We're in a mad rush to get the game wrapped up, but here are a few progress notes for you. The game is content complete and we're in full-on bug fix/polish mode. Hooray!

E3 2017

E3 was a lot of fun, and some cool stuff came from it. We were nominated for Best RPG of E3 by IGN, and also snagged a Game Critics Award nomination for Best RPG!



Switch @ E3

In case you were curious how the game runs on Nintendo Switch, check out this video of the game running ON Switch, courtesy of IGN!




Beta Date

August 29th. Mark your calendars!

The beta will be on Steam. For backers who choose a Steam edition of the game, we're going to work like hell to make sure your save game transfers into the full release.

For console backers, you'll get a beta key on Steam that will remain active until the game officially launches in October.

Physical Upgrade Option

This is a popular question, so here's the status. There's the potential that Battle Chasers may see a physical collector's edition at launch. This is the last thing we are trying to verify before we make prices for any upgrades available. We are hoping to have these prices in the next two weeks and will announce the upgrade options the second we know more about them. Thanks for the patience!


On the above note, around the time we get the physical options sorted, we'll be sending out another wave of survey emails in case you missed the first. As always, if you have any problems, please contact us at support@airshipsyndicate.com and we'll help you out! 


We're also excited to announce that, courtesy of THQNordic, our list of supported languages for Battle Chasers: Nightwar has increased. We're also planning VO support for most or even all of them! Here's the final list:

  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Brazilian
  • Chinese
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Polish


It's been a while since we put up some new tracks, so check out a few from our composers Jesper Kyd and Clark Powell!



Special Shout Out

Powerhouse Animation - CASTLEVANIA!

The amazing crew at Powerhouse Animation, the group doing all of our cut scene motion graphic work and 2d animation, just launched something pretty amazing... Castlevania on Netflix. They touched on all aspects of the series, and our own UI designer Billy Garretsen even designed the logo! So, needless to say, it's close to our hearts (and is freaking awesome). 

If you have a Netflix sub, check it out. Now!


Thank you!
