According to the official Steam page, Pax Dei Early Access' official release date is June 18, 2024. You can pre-purchase the game right now to start playing from day one. There are no special bonuses or rewards announced for pre-ordering the game so far. However, you will be entitled to the following if you purchase it right now :

  • For the entire Early Access period, or at least until June 2025, you have unrestricted access to the game and the designated number of plots.
  • The original cost of the game, which must be paid for upon launch, is already covered.
  • Character slots and permanent access to unique recipes.
  • Directly support the game.

There's an important point to keep in mind even if you purchase the most expensive edition of Pax Dei. Once it is out of Early Access, you will have to pay a sum to keep playing and retain access to your plot and other in-game data.

While most of the differences between the options are purely cosmetic, there have been some allegations of Pax Dei being pay-to-win. The main reason behind these claims is the number of plots you get with each edition. Plots are pieces of land that you own in the game and on which you can build your fortress and other buildings of your kingdom.

With more number of plots, you can double or triple your production by making multiple buildings and growing your kingdom much faster. This gives you an edge over other players who have fewer plots than you.
