About the Game
is a first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century.
The year is 1604. You sailed from England expecting to join a struggling colony on the coast of Virginia. Instead, you find only ghosts and mysteries. What catastrophe blighted the land and drained it of color and life? Where are the settlers and tribes who lived here? And who is the strange, silent woman in red who aids you from afar?
Clue by clue, you must piece together the story of what befell this doomed settlement and find a way to set things right. You will be hunted by corrupted Conquistadors and ravening shadows as you explore an expansive wilderness in order to trace the brief, tragic history of the colony and search for survivors.
- Chart your own course through an untamed wilderness teeming with danger and discovery.
- Unravel the colony’s many mysteries by gathering clues and awakening the memories of the dreaming dead.
- Build up an arsenal of early 17th century weaponry including muskets, bows, crossbows, and throwing axes.
- Collect untold treasures hidden in the wilds by the colonists for reasons you will come to understand in time.
Early Access Status
The initial Early Access release features an introductory area and one large region to explore. Most of the weapon categories are represented, including shortbows, longbows, crossbows, muskets, pistols, and the throwing axe.
While you will only begin to scratch the surface of the story at this stage, you will get a good idea of the mechanics through which it is revealed.
As this is an alpha product, the content is still a work in progress and there are likely to be bugs and unfinished assets.
In the coming days and weeks, we will open up new areas to explore that feature new enemies, weapons, gameplay mechanics, characters, and mysteries. Your feedback will help us to refine existing gameplay and prioritize upcoming features and fixes, so please let us know what you think on the forums!
Note that because we will be adding features on a regular basis, some updates may require you to start a new game in order to experience the changes. Turn off Automatic Updates for Betrayer in your Steam Library if you prefer to stay with the current version and update manually later.
