Frostkeep Studios has announced that Rend, the fantasy team-based survival game, is now available on Steam Early Access on PC for £22.99. Players worldwide can now join one of three factions and work with teammates to survive the vividly beautiful, yet brutal shattered remains of Midgard.
Victorious teams will earn their right to ascend to Valhalla as honored heroes and bask in the glory of victory while collecting earned rewards. The game pairs RPG mechanics, sandbox elements, factional combat, and massive battles with win/loss conditions to introduce a new gaming experience to the survival genre.
Watch the Rend Early Access trailer below:
Rend takes inspiration from Norse mythology to bring players a colorful world of epic battles and survival-based gameplay. To accommodate the various gameplay styles, Rend will host official servers – including Conquest servers that eliminate the magical shield protecting each faction’s base – as well as support private servers for players who are interested in customizing the game’s rulesets and their overall in-game experience.
Frostkeep Studios is an independent game studio founded by a team of veteran game developers – Solomon Lee, Mat Milizia, and Jeremy Wood – who met working together on the original World of Warcraft before moving on to other successful game titles like Overwatch and League of Legends. Frostkeep Studios plans to take advantage of this Early Access period to continue receiving constructive community feedback to further improve upon Rend.
