December 8

The last day of service will be January 31, 2017

Dear Friends,

After more than three years of fights to live again and lot of fun, we have made the difficult decision to close Deadbreed. It’s a dark day for our three man team, whom have been working on this project since its inception some 3+ years ago.

The last day of service will be January 31, 2017. As of today, no in-app nor DLC purchases can/should be made. On January 31, the game will be removed from the Steam Store. Until then, you will still be able to play the game online.
In line with our terms of sale, we hereby inform you that there will be no refund of any virtual currency you have spent in the game or for any resources you still may own on shutdown date.

If you have any questions regarding the closure, please feel free to contact us at info@deadbreed.com

We thank you for your enthusiasm and are grateful that you joined our game. Thank you for sharing the Deadbreed experience with us.


Best,
Anders, Stefan & Greger

About This Game

Deadbreed® is a creepy-themed, hardcore multiplayer online battle arena with unique hero customization and RPG gameplay features.

The game will appeal to those that want a deep, hardcore gaming experience and greater influence on how their character looks but more importantly plays.
The character customization factor is a major strategic and tactical game play element as you’ll figure out what equipment and play style/s work best for each of your characters – should you play her/him as a melee warrior, ranged archer or perhaps a wizard, or are you skillful enough to adapt your character build during the matches to counter what the enemy team is building?

Features

  • 3 vs 3 PvP (player versus player) battles online.
  • Different maps with different strategic objectives (summon a troll from its cave to fight for your team, ring the Bell of Bones to call an undead horde to fight at your side or transform into a might volcanic Golem!)
  • A new, darker breed of Characters. Each character has its own unique set of abilities but plays differently depending on the way you equip them.
  • Breed level up with games. Earn experience to rank up the character you favor.
  • Artifacts can be socketed with gems that level up and wear down with games.
  • Summon totem creatures to aid you in battle.
  • PvE (player versus environment) features like quests, dungeons with malicious creatures, mini-bosses and loot.
  • A team chosen Sentinel becomes the endgame boss challenge. The outcome of each game affects each player’s standing with the Sentinels and their power.
  • A 'Ranked' mode where games allow you to test your skills against opponents of comparable skill.
  • 'Free-to-play' Keys that drop as in-game loot allows you to try out Heroes, Artifacts and Totems you don’t own.
  • Leaderboard for PvP games with monthly seasons and rewards for the top 3 players of each region.
  • Ranked PvP mode where you are able to challenge the best players and climb the Ranked league.

Game Description

A Dark Breed of Heroes

Deadbreed® features a new, dark breed of Heroes. Choose from three distinct types of breed, depending on your personal taste in look and style of play, may it be Nightbreed, Halfbreed or Daybreed. There are just too many unique aspects that differentiate the breeds to list here, but keep in mind that the sight range of Night- and Daybreed varies with the day cycles and that some items can be limited to a specific breed.

Customization, Armory and Artifacts

Deadbreed® features a player centric customization feature, meaning the player has greater influence over his Hero’s look and capabilities. The items you equip not only shape the way the hero looks while playing, they dictate the way he/she moves and attacks to.

Equipping a sword and a shield will make your hero a melee fighter with the sword’s range, while re-equipping the same hero as an archer changes your range and attack to bow and arrow. This opens up totally new ways to explore custom items builds best suited for that particular hero’s abilities, opponents and game scenarios.

In addition to the possibility to adapt and remodel your favorite hero’s equipment choosing from a vast base armory, Deadbreed® features Artifacts. Artifacts are built during games like “normal” items, however they are unique meaning there can only be one in play at any given time during a game, adding an additional layer of strategy and tactical planning to hero item builds. In addition to this, Artifacts level up with games, unlocking relic slots that open up further customization opportunities for you to tune specific items for your favorite heroes. For fans of RPGs, the concept of “socketing” items should feel very familiar and for MOBA fans, you could really simplify this by saying we have moved the “runes” stats modifications associated with the player to individual items instead, and added unique effects on top to make these items really stand out in gameplay.

The Sentinels

The Sentinels are ancient guardians of the Deadbreed® bloodlines – arbitrators of the infernal battlegrounds where dead breed strive to break their undead bonds and lay to final rest. These immortal deities have been charged solely with construction of and ruling over the battlegrounds of death and decay as a punishment for their doings in the real world, but behind the façades, they vie for power while swaying the dead breeds to their philosophy – an eternal conflict among themselves for the right to lead an uprise from this hell and reclaim their rightful place in the cosmos.

As you progress in the game, you’ll uncover the cabal of the Sentinels and learn more about their individual weaknesses and strengths and how they fit your heroes and play style. You prove your Zeal for a Sentinel by choosing it as your Guardian in a match. Then the outcome of that game will modify your Standing with that particular Sentinel, affecting its strengths, abilities and enhancements in coming games making it a more formidable last boss for the enemy team to conquer in order to win (and the other way around). As your Zeal increases, you’ll open up further paths of the cabal and gain access to older and more powerful Sentinels to devote to. Will you stay loyal to a specific breed lineage or even a single Sentinel? There are strategic decisions to be made and rewards to be claimed on a daily basis as your loyalty to the Sentinels are put to the test.

Maps, Dungeons and PvE Features


The practice game kicks off with The Graveyard. At its core, the Graveyard is a 3vs3 two-lane map with a Citadel at each end protected by monoliths. The overall goal of the map is to break the crux on the gates to gain access to the Citadel and defeat the enemy team’s Sentinel.

The Graveyard also features a Troll Cave where you can summon a Troll to fight for your side, two smaller dungeons on each team’ s side of the map and an entrance to a larger Dungeon placed dead center of the map. The concept of Dungeons is familiar to all hack’n slash fans – and our game has plenty of monsters and loot, however the big difference being that our Dungeons are much, much smaller in size and offer no way out than the way you went in, leaving you vulnerable to the enemy team. So, dungeons are our “mini-adventure” version of other MOBA’s monster nests.

Once you are more familiar with the core gameplay you should give the other two maps a try.

The Mirage Map features a Stone where you are able to socket Mirage Resources found in the map to transform into a Massive Golem while The Zodiac Map features the Bell of Bones where you are able to socket Zodiac Resources found in the map to ring the Bell and summon an undead horde to fight for your team.

Leaderboards

Every game you play in PvP will give you a score and a placement at the monthly Leaderboard. Winning and losing matches change this score and ending up in the top three at the end of the month will earn you special rewards.

Ranked Mode

Ranked mode allows you to test your skills against opponents of comparable skill and earn special ranks to reflect your skill. Winning and losing matches can gain or lose rank, and special rewards, like custom Insignia, gravestones etc. Each player's rank is reflected in their Gravestone and plaque. There are currently 5 divisions ranging from Bronze up to Diamond, with each division split in 5 series.
