What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Rend is a fully developed game experience, providing players endless hours of challenging and engaging gameplay. That said, Rend has plenty of room to grow, and we will be tirelessly adding content and systems throughout the Early Access period. Early adopters will be a critical voice in deciding the future direction of the game as it evolves.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access for 6-12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“During Early Access, we will be adding tons of content in the form of new creatures, artifact items, player abilities and as of yet undetermined game systems.

We currently have plans to add the following during the Early Access period:

  • New creatures
  • New weapons
  • More artifact weapons
  • Armor dyeing
  • Weapon modifications
  • More base building pieces
  • More siege weapons
  • More cosmetic customization options

This is a rough idea, subject to change as development goes along. Ultimately, our players will be the main driver for determining what comes next.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The following features are in the game today:

  • Base building: defensive structures, crafting stations, decor, and more
  • FPS combat: compelling shooter gameplay with a large variety of weapons
  • Crafting and research: craft hundreds of items and research new technologies to increase your capabilities
  • Skill system: a broad set of skills that level up and reward players for most activities in the game
  • Talents: customize your character with four unique talent trees as you level up
  • Mounts: venture into the spirit realm to capture mountable companions
  • Artifact weapons: find and collect ultra-powerful artifact weapons to dominate your enemies
  • Base raiding: invade enemy factions' bases to steal resources and ultimately wipe them out
  • AI invasions: defend your base against hordes of AI attackers
  • Win or lose: full support for your faction to win or lose on your chosen server
  • Custom servers: run your own server and customize its ruleset to your liking
  • Survival mechanics: resource harvesting, environmental danger, hunger and thirst

Rend is fully playable from start to finish. While there is plenty of room for additional content and systems, there is nothing missing from the core game experience.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We have not yet determined future pricing updates.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community will be crucial in the continued growth development of Rend. We have tons of great ideas for how we want to see the game evolve, but ultimately the players will determine much of our future direction.”

About This Game

Choose your side in this faction-based survival game, pitting groups of players against each other amid hordes of horrific demons in an ongoing epic war. Explore a mysterious and unforgiving world in search of resources and powerful artifacts as you race against the clock to achieve the glory of victory before you are wiped from existence. Carve a unique niche for yourself with RPG-like talent and skill systems, allowing you to tailor your character to any play style. Expand your technology and knowledge with your faction to unlock new heights of power to wield against your foes. Defend your base against an ever increasing onslaught from the unyielding armies of the Lost, and from enemy player factions. Survival is only the first step, as there can only be one victor. Will you be lost and forgotten, or will you emerge as champions?

Three Way Faction Warfare


Engage in a struggle for dominance between three factions: Order, Conclave, and Revenant. You will not survive this war alone, and your faction will be your home in the world of Rend. Together you will build a stronghold to withstand enemy forces and protect your valuable resources and buildings. Only one faction can win this race toward victory, but all may lose.

Play Your Way


Take advantage of deep and engaging talent and skill systems to fully customize your character. Your character will end up with a personalized set of capabilities tailored specifically for you. Find what you love to do and be rewarded for it, no matter your play style.

Defend Your Base


The world is a hostile place, and you will be called upon to defend what is yours. Your home will be protected much of the time, but when the Time of Reckoning strikes, you will be open for attack from the armies of the Lost Ones. Enemy factions may also strike while you are vulnerable, so your guard can never be let down. Just remember, while your base is unprotected, your enemies are also ripe for plunder.

Explore, Craft, and Research


You and your allies will venture forth to explore and collect resource from the world and its dangerous inhabitants. Upgrade your faction's technology in many different directions as you go, giving you the ability to craft more and more powerful weapons and armor. Uncover the secrets of the spirit world to bind vanquished creatures to you as mountable companions, and unlock powerful magics to bolster your abilities.

Conquer Your Enemies


Hiding deep within the frozen hellscape of the Eternal Wastelands lie the keys to victory. Long sealed tombs contain powerful artifacts you can use to turn the tide of war to your favor. You must gather your allies and prepare for a grueling trip through harsh and unforgiving environments, battling against the world's most fearsome denizens. Beware of waiting too long, as your coveted treasure may be stolen by enemy factions before you ever arrive. Of course, you can always take it from their cold, dead hands...

Enter the world of Rend if you dare. Only the strongest and most cunning will last long, and only one side will win. Your survival is not guaranteed...
