'Life By You' Needs More Time, Early Access Launch Delayed Until Further Notice

by Rainier on May 20, 2024 @ 2:03 p.m. PDT

Life By You is a next-generation life simulation game headed by Rod Humble, the industry veteran known for his roles in creating The Sims and Second Life.

In Life by You, players will create humans and live out their lives without loading screens.

Life by You allows players to design and live out the lives of the humans that they create in an open game world where everything is customizable. Players create their households, build their homes and tell life’s many stories. With real language conversation and the ability to switch from third-person to direct control gameplay, players will connect with their humans on an emotional level. A wide variety of Creator Tools and Editors will allow players to tweak every aspect of their experience, giving them the ability to live life to the fullest - or break the rules, as they see fit. 

Life by You is developed by Paradox Tectonic, a game development studio formed in 2019 by Paradox Interactive. Paradox Tectonic is led by Rod Humble, and made up of veteran game development talent dedicated to building games that enable creativity, freedom, emotion, and sharing. The studio is committed to working with the players, making Life by You’s Early Access a shared experience where the community’s feedback will impact on priorities, content ideas, and development as the team brings the game to full-launch. 

Originally scheduled for September 2023, then pushed until March 5th, delayed until June 4th, Paradox Interactive has moved Life by You's Early Access to a yet to be determined date.

After much consideration, we regret to announce that we have decided to retract Life by You’s Early Access release date, previously set for June 4th. This was not an easy decision, especially since we understand the anticipation and excitement that many players have for the game. However, we believe that additional development time is needed.

While we would have preferred to commit to a new release window, we believe it is more prudent to hold off while we plan ahead, rather than committing to a new date that we cannot be certain to meet.

We will provide more information as soon as possible, until then we want to sincerely thank you for your continued support and patience.

Mattias Lilja, Deputy CEO of Paradox Interactive
