Press release

FOUNDRY is now available in Early Access

The roadmap for this Early Access includes new technologies, advanced power plants, world updates, and much more

STOCKHOLM AND VANCOUVER — MAY 2 — Today, Paradox Interactive and Channel 3 announced that FOUNDRY, the 3D voxel-based factory builder, is now available in Early Access on Steam for $29.99 / €29.99 / £26.99. This Early Access phase is an opportunity to implement additional content and updates outlined in the roadmap, such as new technologies, world updates, UI/UX enhancements, blue prints, new decor items, advanced power plants, among others. Primarily, it will allow the development team to gather feedback from players and adjust the current roadmap based on community input.

FOUNDRY is a first-person, factory-building and automation sandbox set in a beautiful, procedurally-generated voxel open world. Starting from humble beginnings of manually mining and processing resources, crafting machinery, and developing technologies, players can advance to automating the entire production line to their precise creative plans and vision. They will face different logistic challenges such as planning and managing pipe networks and power systems while working to optimize their constantly growing production lines as they create their own gigantic, automated, and self-sustaining factory. Played solo or with friends, FOUNDRY is the perfect mix between grid-based construction games and factory building simulations.

More information will come later on FOUNDRY. All the latest information on the game can be found here:
