Eden Rising is an Open World survival sandbox / tower defense mix that lets you play solo or in up to 8-player co-op mode. Explore the vast world of Eden and defend your bases from hordes of alien monsters. Make use of everything you collect to craft powerful defenses, upgrade your weapons, and unlock challenges.
After a year in Early Access, the game is officially out now and available on Steam. Users have given the game mixed reviews.
Eden Rising has two editions:
- The Explorer Edition is free-to-play and features no microtransactions. It lets players access 3 large areas, the Explorer sieges, and an extended questline, as well as the usual gameplay.
- The Ascendant Edition which is the entire game and costs $24.99. This unlocks all areas, sieges, armor dyes, gear unlocks, and more. Both versions are fully compatible! Players will be able to join up with friends no matter which version of the game they have.
If you want to learn more about the differences between the game editions, the developers have published a special blog post to answer all your questions. Check it out on Steam.
“Our main motivation with the F2P and Ascendant Editions is to build community. If you only want to play with friends and not public servers, only one friend needs to buy the Ascendant Edition for you all to have the content!”
