    The Realms Beyond combat beta was originally supposed to be out in mid-2019, then in January, and then we were told that it needed a few more weeks. Turns out that that was more like a few more months, but now the wait is finally over and the beta is releasing next week on May 15th. It sounds like one reason it took so long is that it's not really a combat beta anymore, which means the Early Access release might not take too long to come out afterwards. Here are the details from the brief Kickstarter update:

    Finally, we can announce the release date of the Combat Beta!

    This first playable version of Realms Beyond will be available next Friday, the 15th of May 2020 for all backers at that tier. You'll receive a Steam Key via email from backerKit.

    For backers whose rewards include only the Early-Access or the release version itself, please be informed that the Combat Beta evolved significantly further than originally planned. Divergent to the original idea of demonstrating only the combat system, we decided to implement most of the other game components as well (namely the dialogue system, quests, journal, mini map, script, chests, doors, trading, etc.).

    Therefore, the development time from this version to the next release, the Early-Access, will be much shorter than originally scheduled.

    As soon as we delivered the Combat Beta, we'll create a gameplay video for all backers without direct access to this version.

    We would like to note that the Combat Beta is still a beta version, with all the flaws that entails.

    Many thanks for your patience and understanding!​

    Colony Ship, Wrath of the Righteous, Trudograd and now this. We might not have much in the way of actual releases, but this truly is the spring of RPG beta testing.

    They have only one programmer.

    Very exciting news. Can't wait. :)

    Wow! This game always seemed too good to be true (but too good to doubt, as well) -- so glad to read this!

    I can't believe this is actually happening.

    This means there's always hope.

    Maybe we are going to play even Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness one day.

    It’s advancing. I’ve been neglecting it a bit to try to finish off Strangeland and because combining homeschooling my kids with my day job leaves little time or energy for writing. But the rest of the team is working hard.

    Bit confused here.
    As a potential late backer, what version of the game do I need to get to get into the combat beta or am I shit out of luck?

    Their backerkit page lists only early access: https://realms-beyond.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

    I don't think there is any way to get into the combat beta.
