What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since 2012 we’ve already finished 3 games and delivered them to over 15M players worldwide. We know that working with our community is crucial in order to focus on the right priorities and deliver the best game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have lots of features that we're looking to add to Dreadhunter and community feedback will help shape the game during our first 12 months of Early Access. Full release is then anticipated within the following year, where we'll provide the community with more specific release details.”

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

“The full version is due to feature a complete story, new weapons, items, enemies and abilities, additional replayability systems and more! More happy players equals more content that we will be able to implement from our “nice to have” wishlist.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version includes the core gameplay systems, two story acts and around 60 moddable items to equip your mech with. It also includes replayable, procedurally generated dungeons for you to hone your Dread hunting skills.”

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

“We will consider price increases prior to major content updates and in relation to the overall development of the games market. We don’t plan any sales during Early Access.”

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

“We are present on our Discord and here on our Steam community. We read carefully what our players say and plan our updates accordingly. Join the Dreadhunter community now and be part of our journey!”

About This Game

Drop into action inside a cutting edge mech suit. Shoot, slash, smash and dash to get to the highest bounties as a fearless sci-fi monster hunter.

Defeat swarms of screeching monsters and slay ominous horrors to discover that the biggest dreads in the Universe don’t have claws and rocket launchers…


Enjoy badass combat experience that rapidly changes between ranged and melee. Keep yourself in motion, as the monsters are fast and deadly.


Hunt down bosses for bounties in each level and face massive final bosses at the end of all story acts.


All environments in the story campaign are uniquely generated every time you enter them and you can increasingly match the challenge to your skill by next level of difficulty.


Collect loot that changes the way you play. All item drops you find have unique and meaningful upgrades to your mech, weapons or abilities. Find interesting item combinations that suit your own playstyle.


Taste the destructive power of guns that already feel like special abilities. Upgrade them by equipping armor pieces, and add upgradable abilities with their own interesting variants and ability trees to become unstoppable!
