Shortly after announcing the milestone of one million downloads on December 12th, 2016, the single developer of Ravenfield revealed that a paid version of the game is being prepared, and as of a few days ago, the Steam Greenlight page is now live.

All this information was additionally announced on the FAQ page of their Discord channel, where you can also read about incoming implementations, including a map editor. Though one specific feature that was historically requested by a lot of people, which is multiplayer support, apparently is never going to happen, as you can see in the following screenshot (check the first question):

In the mean time, you can find already the fifth beta of the game on itch.io and GameJolt. This is the last changelog:
Quote- New Vehicle: Quadbikes!
- New Weapon: Recon LRR: A semi automatic long range rifle
- New Tool: Wrench, can be used to repair vehicles, or simply whack people on their heads
- Optimizations!
- Tank and Helicopter handling improved
- Helicopter has a new default control scheme
- Weapon rebalancing with damage falloff over distance
- Tons of AI Tweaks
- Tons of bug fixes

What do you think about this decision? Are you interested in a full commercial version of the game?

Campaign Mode
The campaign mode pits two teams against each other in a war spanning several maps. On top of fighting individual battles on the ground, the player will also control army movements from their control room.

The teams strive to capture maps and their resources in order to mobilize and upgrade their respective armies. Ensure your victory by capturing the other team's headquarters!

The campaign mode will also be compatible with custom levels. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

About the author -
I write mostly about obscure Linux games which are good or have a lot of potential. Today we already have a lot of titles and for some small studios it may be hard to stand out, though their willingness to support Linux despite all the difficulties needs to be rewarded. My articles aim to be a small contribution in that sense, by giving them some of the exposure they deserve.

I enjoy the previous versions on Itch.io but I would only buy it if there is multiplayer support.

Its a fun game, if he prices it at £6.99 or less i can see it doing really well on steam. Would also LOVE to see some multiplayer on this game! maybe the steam monies will fund the development

Yeah this game is dying for multiplayer. If it's single player is well done I will still get it, but c'mon maaan.

I like that it is coming to Steam but i am not sure whether i will pick this up as long it doesn't have multiplayer.

To hell with multiplayer, everything is multiplayer. I don't have Internet at home, so I'd rather they focused on better AI and features. Also, I've been following this game since the first article. I absolutely love it. Can't wait to see what features we get next.

I would buy it if it was multiplayer as well. I have no interest in it as a single player game.... I hope they consider multiplayer in the near future....

Well,

considering the amount of hours I've already piled up with this game...
I'm most certainly happy to pay the man for his work.

Battlefield is ALL about multiplayer. It simply can't be "Battlefield-like" without it. Secondly, battlefield is about cutting edge graphics and effects. This... Not so much. What's the similarity? The first person perspective? That you hold a gun and shoot stuff?

chuzzle44To hell with multiplayer, everything is multiplayer.

While agree with you there to some extent and much prefer playing a good single player game over multiplayer games, this game simply screams for multiplayer. Really, it is like a simplified Bad Company 2 without destructible environment and stuff. But it is a team vs. team FPS and frankly, playing against bots gets dull fairly quickly in my opinion because there simply isn't anything else to do in this game than shooting stuff.

It is a fun game though and I really enjoy playing it from time to time.
