New update and winners of the April 2016 season announced!

Login now and check out the latest update and see how much the game has improved! We've made a lot of improvements to the general game play mechanics.

  • Play is now “general” mode (for both practice and PvP games) and Ranked is the default PvP competitive mode, featuring the Ranked level (Gravestone) system and integrated with the Leaderboard.
  • We’ve implemented a bad language filter in the chat and a report option (which can ban players from using the chat).
  • You are now able to use your Keys on everything for the first two weeks of playing.
  • You can now set your camera preference options in the settings.
  • You are now able to set graphical options, like disable shadows in the settings.
  • Players are anonymous in the loading screen (to prevent match skipping).
  • You are now able to turn the animated portrait on the HUD on/off in the settings (extra FPS).
  • Fixed a bug with preset duplication.
  • Fixed a bug with Artifact subscriptions not showing after login.
  • Improved navigation and action prediction (improved general gameplay responsiveness).
  • Consecutive deaths gold value decreased (to balance out snowballing of single player frequent deaths).
  • Consecutive kills gold value decreased (to balance out snowballing of single player consecutive kills).

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?


  • 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.


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.

This is NOT a free to play game. This should just be a demo. I like that they let you rent gear, and try stuff out, but you need every key they give you just to unlock enough gear to play a single game. If you go in as a free player, you will not have access to the highest tier of upgraded gear. Which means in end game, on equal skill level, you have no chance. The time it takes to unlock anything as a free player is ludicrous.

That being said, I love the theme and style of the game. I'll leave it installed in hope that there's some balancing to happen. I would gladly play a little money to play a game where there's no major team disadvantages than to play a free game where I have to hope there are no free players on my team.

Early Access Review
Posted: December 18, 2014
Good points :
- Excellent and dark athmosphere
- Nice design
- Potentially an excellent good moba gameplay
- seems there will be more than one map

Bad points :
-Still plenty of bugs (crash, or heroes do not always respond very well to your command, like e.g. movement, spell cast)
-Not much heroes

Worst point:
-VERY EXPENSIVE game (or I hope only early access)!! even with the 40 EUR pack, you have nothing (4 heroes/9 and 1 artefact)... You must pay additionnal heroes/weapons/sentinel if you want to have a reasonable content in game...
I started with the 8 euros pack then I went to the 40 EUR pack because the game was too poor with only one hero... Then I added some silver coins 2x 20 EUR. So I spent about 88 EUR for this game and I have the 9-8 available heroes (they removed one in the meanwhile but should come back), 2 skins, 2 sentinels and a bit more than one third of the artefacts.
I could afford that, but
1) many friends don t or just don t want to spend so much for such a game (even if they spend without counting dota2 heores skins)
2) I consider the game still in a very early stage and expect much more content, (aretfact/breed/sentinel/map). But presently it also means much more content to pay... Will I finish to spend more than 500 EUR to get a complete game?
When you are used to other games like dota2 where only skins are not free (and god knows how much i spent in dota2 skins) you can only get disgusted by the deabreed approach of making money.

Ok people could tell that I could get these stuff for free with copper coins...
Indeed you can either pay with real money (silver coins) or by farming copper coins without end... For example the cheapest weapon is a bit more than 1000 copper coins. Without quests achievement, you get about 80 copper coins per game (about 20 min per game) You can get some 100 coins more per quest and you have 3 quest per day.
So if you have plenty of time and you are very patient you can get one or two cheap item per day.

So in conclusion Deadbreed is potentially an excellent game that could even put dota2 in the grave. But it will never happend with such a stinky payment system (kind of pay to play or even pay to win), and I would not recommend this game for this reason.

My recommendation to the guy who make this stinky system:
How are you going to attract sufficient people to handle good equilibrium in matchmaking and without waiting for ages?
Please consider instead a dota2 or even starcraft2 model.

I've never seen a more blatant money grab. This game is basically an email from a Nigerian Prince saying that his assets were frozen and he needs to borrow $20k but will reward you in a few weeks with 2million.

You open the game up and the very first thing you notice is all these locks and keys you have to purchase. Whatever quality this game may have is buried under microtransactions.

Not sure if this is still the case, but I played its pre-release version for a while, had some fun. Came back a month later and everything was covered in microtransactions and poorly balanced. Never opened it again.

Interesting concept, beautiful design but clunky, unamangable controls with a very low player base.

If this had more players/funding, it could easily go from interestingly mediocre to being great.

Such a shame.
