Thea 2: The Shattering, innovative Slavic strategy debuts on Steam Early Access today
Polish-British indie developer and creator of Thea: The Awakening, the critically well-received 4x strategy, RPG, survival and card game hybrid, has launched its long-awaited sequel, Thea 2: The Shattering, today via Steam Early Access. The Early Access version provides players with the core game experience, including co-op multiplayer.
Thea 2: The Shattering builds on the best and most distinctive elements of the first Thea, providing more content, enriched and much enhanced gameplay, as well as new and innovative ideas. Fans of deep strategy will have access to hours of challenging entertainment, providing the perfect starter to the full game’s main course — which should be served up long before the summer of 2019 is with us.
Early Access includes all the core game mechanics: including exploration, battles, resource gathering, research and crafting. The main quest and a number of side quests will be fully playable. Fans of co-operative play will be pleased to know that co-op modes have also made it into the Early Access build.

Thea 2: The Shattering once again offers a unique blend of 4X turn strategy, RPG, survival — and an original card game with a dark fantasy setting — all inspired by Slavic mythology and culture. Players take on the role of gods, overseeing the actions of their tribe of followers, while navigating a procedurally-generated environment.
They will decide on their favoured play style and build on it during the adventure: they may wish to simply explore the world as nomads, take on all comers as a warlord-led army, or master the art of diplomacy; building alliances with other factions and trying to ensure the peaceful survival of their worshippers. An atmospheric musical score and moody visuals provide a perfect accompaniment to a carefully crafted Slavic narrative.
The Early Access version of Thea 2: The Shattering is available to buy on Steam now at prices 24.99 USD/ 19.99 GBP/ 21.99 EUR.
