Game

Is Jaws of Extinction open world or story based?

It’s both. It is fairly unique in that it has an immersive story but, if you want to just play to survive in an open world, you can totally ignore the story.

What will be available during early access?

Please visit the roadmap at http://www.jawsofextinction.com/roadmap/

When will official dedicated servers be available?

We will be stress testing our official servers around 3-4 months into official early access, you will know when this happens becuase we will NOT be in hidden mode on Steam.

Will I be able to rent a game server for my community?

Yes server rental will be available during early access.

Is this a PvP game?

PvP is a viable play style BUT… there will be consequences. We have things in place to try and reduce the kill on sight approach, such as an integrity system whereby players who kill other players will lose reputation and be shunned from NPC safe zones. If your integrity gets really low you might even be hunted down by groups of NPCs and have a bounty put on your head which other players can claim by killing you.

DLC Releated

Downloadable content

The World's End edition says it has DLC’s, what does that entail?

Purchasing the “World’s End Edition” of JoE offers the DLCs due to our plan on releasing a continued (Extended) story to the main one that will be available during Public Alpha (Website Exclusive Early Access). This extension of the story is called “At World’s End” and will be split up in to parts very much like how we intend on releasing the main story in the main game (in chapters). The extended story “At World’s End” will come with a whole new part of the world of Jaws of Extinction to explore in the form of a giant city (around the size of New York) to the west of Eden-Nadir, this will be viewable from the shores of Eden-Nadir in the main game, but will not be accessible unless you have the DLC.

Other thing offered in the 3 DLCs we plan on releasing are: –

  • Additional Story
  • Additional Weapons
  • Additional Playable Protagonists
  • Additional NPC characters
  • Additional (Boss) Special Infected
  • Additional Vehicles (Land, Sea & Air)
  • Additional Dungeons
  • Additional Craftables

You can pre-order JoE on the website at playjoe.gg and click on the big red pre-order button!

Discord & Steam forums

Why have been banned from Discord/Steam forums?

Being part of our community, we expect you to behave in a mannerable way, be helpful with your feedback and be respectful to developers, moderators and community members.

If you have been considering toxic, making complaints about how bad the game is, about how something looks and we can not find anything constructive in what you are saying we will flag you and keep an eye on your posts and messages. If multiple messages are made with negative attitude we will ban you for up to a month at our discretion.

How do I become an ELITE Backer?

An ELITE Backer is someone that backed on both of the campaigns on Kickstarter, it has nothing to do with the amount pledge. If you should have the ELITE Backer status please DM @Ryan (CEO / Lead Dev) who will fix this for you.

I have a bug, where can i report it?

You can report bugs to the #alpha-feedback channel or on the official bug tracker page http://bugtracker.kyecreations.com, also you can report bugs in game by selecting F1.

I have messaged a member of the JoE team and they never messaged me back, why is that?

They are hard at work building the Alpha version of the game and will get to you when they have a free minute. please be patient as the focus right now is to build the game.
