As we heading into 2018, Failed State gets a lot of major updates related to game mechanics and content. And today we would like to share with you some new screenshots and updates information as well as a new release date set to March 8, 2018.

For this time the slight shift in the date happened because we reimagined and substantially improved core gameplay mechanics, adding more features and possibilities for players. The game universe is extending as well as Rose’s skills. As always, improving our players’ experiences takes a lot of time, but it’s definitely worth it.

Today we also cover one of the new in-game features. This is the backpack system. In game Rose is wearing a backpack with some separated pockets, she will place found important things right there. Items that she probably won’t use later for their intended purpose will be disassembled into components for crafting. Items in a backpack are gravity affected and of course, you have an ability to manage its contents.

Disclaimer: animated sequences below were taken from a very early version of the game, that contained only a prototype for this feature.


The game is now divided into chapters, each of them ends with a certain plot milestone. There will be several chapters, and what will be released in the first version of early access is actually the first chapter. After the release of this first version of the early access, we will collect feedback and bug reports, so hotfixes and patches will be released very quickly. Then, prior to the releases of the next major updates, new chapters will be available for playing, this will be additionally announced.

Do not worry about your in-game progress. Save files will be fully compatible with all versions and platforms on PC. And if you played the Demo version, you will receive a small in-game award.

Below are a few new screenshots of the locations from the game.
