When will Letters of Marque be available?

Current plans are for an pre-alpha release with basic gameplay in Q3 2015. After that will be the ability for upgrades and addons, crew management, and some advanced damage control to round out the Alpha stage in another ~2-3 months (Q4 2015). Beta stage is expected to take a good bit to finalize the networking and distribution channels as well as get the marketing into full effect with finalized UI and gameplay mechanics taking around 3 months more. All times are subject to changes due to development hurdles but we anticipate no major issues. Our full release is anticipated around Q2 2016.
