Rend, the fantasy team-based survival game is out now in early access for Steam, inviting players to join one of three factions and work with teammates to survive the vividly beautiful, yet brutal shattered remains of Midgard.
“Since we first announced Rend, we have been developing it side by side with our players through Pre-Alpha and Alpha testing and by gathering feedback through Discord and our official channels,” said Jeremy Wood, co-founder and CEO, Frostkeep Studios. “Our goal has always been to transform the way players interact and participate in survival games while delivering on the fantasy that they have come to expect from this genre. We have created a unique space that doesn’t feel like any other game in the survival genre and while this marks a significant milestone for our studio, we’re only just getting started.”
“We’re making Rend for the players, not for us,” said Mat Milizia, co-founder and creative director, Frostkeep Studios. “We’re excited to see how the community will continue to make an impact on the game’s development during the Early Access period.”
Rend takes inspiration from the motifs of ancient 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.
