Game Chronicles is launching our new EARLY ACCESS review section this weekend. Steam Early Access now represents a significant part of the Steam Store and PC gaming culture, as gamers continue to support developers and their projects during a game’s development cycle.
It has always been our policy not to review any game before it was finished and officially released to the public, but that was also in a time where developers weren’t charging gamers to play those unfinished games. With so many Early Access titles; many of which costing just as much as a final release, we feel it is our duty to play and review those games just like a finished product to better inform our readers. We will do our best to follow these games throughout their development, updating our coverage and possibly review scores leading up to final release.
Early Access reviews will appear alongside other review content on Game Chronicles but will also be flagged as “Early Access” and can be filtered by choosing the Early Access slide-out option on Game Reviews. We have several Early Access reviews in progress at this time with more content planned moving forward.
