What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We launch it in early access for two reasons.

1. A perfect sandbox survival can be made only with cooperation, with your community. We want to develop it, in any way you love to play(democratic rules of course), but we hope you will like our initial ideas too.

2. We need your help to get the balance right and gather information about how to prepare the PVP scenarios.

Our goal is to make a perfect medieval, co-op, bandit-band simulator. With some surprising end-game scenarios.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Depends on how many ideas the community will have. We hope around one-two years.”

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

About This Game

In the medieval Europe, to be the younger brother was a harsh business. The elder one often saw you as a threat - so as fast as he claimed his lands and title, he cast the younger siblings out or even killed them. 

The cast out brothers were too prideful, to work at the villages or serve as wretched mercenaries. So they often formed bands and started to rob merchants in the lands nearby. They were well-trained, equipped and very ambitious. Which made them very dangerous enemies. They were called the Raubritters.

You are one of them - but your story, started, a little bit different.


Raubritter is a bridge between survival simulators, RPGs and co-op games.

Survival - First you have to survive in the forest and build your camp, before you will be able to establish your band and sow fear in the hearts of the local merchants and landlords.

RPG: Develop your character, your base and your band. Fight and build your legend. 

Simulation: Create and upgrade your weapons, build your camp and his defenses, plan your raids and execute them perfectly. And if you are bored with robbing simple merchants, maybe you are bold enough to burn a village or an even castle? 

Strategy: Decide who fights and who sustains the camp. Will you move your camp, so the guards do not find you, or do you want to build up strong defenses and fight them off? Many choices stand before you. Choose wrong and die.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

There is a lot of fighting, robbing, stealing and killing. Sometimes chopping of heads or hands.

There is also abuse of the weak and those who cannot defend themselves.

ATTENTION: THE GAME OFTEN USES EXTREME BAD LANGUAGE, that by some people maybe considered offensive.
