Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our core game is great, but we’re looking for trial-by-fire feedback from battle hardened veterans to forge the ultimate weapon you burn to wield. Every character, map, game mode and feature we add should be tested and beaten until it gleams. Tell us what you love and what you hate: we want all of it. A team of video game veterans made PWND great, but with a team of thousands we can craft a masterpiece. Join us, and together we will PWN the Earth!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as it takes! Could be 3 months, could be a year. We really won’t know until we’ve traveled this path together and mutually feel it’s ready. Fret not, we are committed to seeing this through and have more content coming in September and October.”

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

“More characters, more maps, more game modes and hopefully some amazing things that we create together! Share your thoughts on the questions below so we can get this party started...

New Characters: what should they be? How do you play the game, what abilities would you like to see, and how can that influence our character designs?

New Maps: We’d love to see how people play the game as we lay them out. So let us know what you like and don’t like about the first batch of maps, so we can adjust as we make new ones.

Game Modes: We’ve got some new ones brewing, but nothing would benefit more from your feedback to make them great.

New Features: Are there new features we haven't thought of, that could make this the best arena shooter? We need player feedback to hone in on anything we're missing!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“PWND currently has four characters, three maps, single player Challenge Mode, Practice Mode, and plenty of loot including skins, PWN Stamps and custom PWN animations. A new character and new map will be dropping in mid-late September. The core gameplay for public matches is complete, and we've taken a first pass at balance and skill-ranked matchmaking. Work has begun on a party system (in first release now) and other social systems. It's a pretty solid game at this point, but it needs more love before leaving Early Access.”

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

“Honestly? We’re not sure. Final pricing after Early Access will depend on many factors. It certainly won’t go down from the Early Access price, and early players will get something unique and special when we leave the Early Access cocoon.”

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

“We aim to engage daily with players via Discord, Steam forums, and Facebook. Our goal is to respond to anyone who has a question, thought, suggestion, or point of view about the game. Give us feedback, and some nice rewards may come your way! We're also working with a number of top notch Influencers, and players will get a chance to play with/against them throughout Early Access (more bragging rights!).”

UPDATE: Vex, The Pit, and Custom Match Launched!!

NEW CHARACTER: Vex- A Deadly Cyber Ninja!

Meet Vex, a hardcore gamer turned cyber ninja assassin due to a disaster involving a top-secret experimental VR game. Petabytes of gamer knowledge overloaded her psyche, and she’s now trapped in the video game world unable to distinguish it from reality. Vex dominates her enemies, imbued with the strength and skills of the assassin she played in the game.

Vex is reliant on speed and melee attacks, and her unusual strengths give her an ethereal quality. She can teleport with her SAVE CRYSTAL to surprise an enemy, and before they can react a GRAPPLE HOOK has pulled them in close for a deadly CYBER SABER strike. To protect herself from enemy payback, Vex uses her Phase ability to soften the blow of heavy fire and avoid projectiles- even shields can’t contain this minx!

NEW LEVEL: The Pit- An Underground Quarry!

The Pit is a PWNer’s dream!! There’s no better place to hold a PWND Tournament than this sketchy underground quarry brimming with toxic waste. Adrenaline pumping danger lurks at every turn in this high-octane arena full of long corridors, endless obstacles, and multiple floors and platforms. Explosive-happy PWNers will find all the chaos they crave here, so revel in The Pit and fire off your rockets!

How did PWND League organizers find this gem? Well, each LAZER-US respawn pod generates trace amounts of toxic byproduct, which Maintenance workers collected and dumped into The Pit. League location scouts stumbled on the nuclear sludge splattered quarry during a routine search, and when doing the site inspection they saw limitless hazards and fell in love with the place. Only the finest PWND arenas would reek this much of reckless danger.

CUSTOM MATCH: Choose your Friend or Foe!

Which of your friends has better PWNing skills than you? Maybe you’re a badass, and just haven’t had a chance to prove it yet. Match up with any friends you choose by playing with them in a Custom Match. It’s not necessary to play 3 vs. 3 anymore, yet it changes up the fun more when you Party up with two friends then queue up with a randomly selected enemy- you never know what you’ll get. The options with Custom Match are endless, just don’t forget about the rest of us because we want to PWN with you too!

Customize Your Character With Virtual Currency!
Now you can now use the virtual currency (pwnd credits) you’ve PWND hard to earn! No need to wait for Loot Crate surprises, just shop in the Customize store for those fly character or gun skins that you’ve had your eye on. Leave a mark behind that will haunt your foe and buy a rare PWN Stamp- show PWNing pride!!

Master Challenge Mode With Splice!

Have you raced Hank in Challenge Mode so much you could do the obstacles in your sleep? Now you can ramp up your skills with Splice too! If you can leap around with ease at great speed here, then you’ll surely become a PWN Master in the arena and defeat your enemies.

“Pwnd is by far the fastest paced shooter I have played in a long time. It echoes games like CS: GO, Unreal Tournament, and of course, Quake Arena.”
Nerd Reactor

“Hilariously over-the-top and thrillingly addicting, PWND is a crazy shooter game that combines rocket arena-style combat with “excessive celebration.” This game is as enjoyable as it is obnoxious, and it unapologetically encourages every player to be a bad loser and a shameless winner”
Gaming Cypher

“Overwatch and Quake had a baby called PWND”

About This Game

PWND is set in an impressively jaded future (fact or fiction?), where mass-market cloning exists and the most popular sport in the world is rocket arena combat… jump, kill, humiliate, repeat.

Welcome to a future where the spectacle of fiery gib-deaths no longer satisfies the hungry, salivating audiences of flabby flesh bags watching from home. Fortunately the sport of PWND has rocketed to the rescue, entertaining luddites of tomorrow with spectacular displays of corpse defiling domination.

In PWND, the kill is just the beginning. In order to score, you must pwn by performing a close range victory dance on your downed opponents. But be careful! You’re completely vulnerable during your victory dance, so make sure your team’s got your back or you'll find yourself on the wrong end of a pwn stack.

Situational awareness and team communication are critical for pulling major PWNage. Teamwork becomes ever more important as the stakes get higher and higher over the course of a match. Experiment with different combinations of characters to find the perfect combination of skills and abilities for your crew.

Included in your PWND purchase:
  • 3 multiplayer maps designed for death-defying vertical combat.
  • 4 characters with unique play styles and diverse strengths and weaknesses
  • New character and map coming in September!
  • 20 Single Player Challenge Mode Levels to hone and tone your PWN skillz.
  • Pay to Win? F-that! Winning is up to you. The only thing we sell is stuff for looking good...

Brought to You By

  • Founders of Treyarch (that Call of Duty company).
  • Veterans from Armored Warfare, The Evil Within, Borderlands 2: Mister Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sorcery, and many more.
  • Leading YouTubers, Twitch Streamers, and your favorite purveyors of gaming culture.

PWND is designed to be the fastest f-ing FPS in existence, where every match is a rocket-jumping blur of high-altitude action. Each character has their own set of skills for you to master on the road to victory.

The action doesn't stop when your opponent is crawling and wheezing their last pitiful breath. What fun is that? Big scores come from the PWN, a display of weaponized disrespect atop prone opponents. Rub it in, but be careful: strategy and teamwork are required lest you lose the war.

Swagger baby, it’s all about smooth buttery style in this throwdown town. Collect PWN stamps, skins, and gear to keep it fresh. A badge of pride for you, a mark of shame for your competitors.

VanossGaming, TheSyndicateProject, H20 Delirious, DaithDeNogla, Smii7y, Ms_Vixen, GoldGlove, MiniLadd, Miss Mae, and dozens more are playing PWND. What’re you waiting for? Join the party!

Lonely baby? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with Challenge Mode with 20 themed levels for some quality alone time.

Want more pwning? Don't worry slick. We're dropping content like it's hot; check it...
