What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Deathtide Survivors offers a very distinct twist to the emerging 'Hordelike' genre, with well designed game mechanics, advanced enemy AI and fully-fledged boss battles. Early Access is a way for us to receive constant valuable feedback and engage with our community, keeping our players front and center at every step of the development cycle. We want to make the best game we can, and working directly with our community is the only way to do that.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate about a year until the full 1.0 release is ready for launch.”

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

“The initial release contains Act 1. Acts 2, 3 and 4 will be released over the course of Early Access, and Act 5 in the full 1.0 release. Each Act brings the next chapter of the story, a new map, tons of new spells, talents, attunements, enemies, and boss battles. We also plan on releasing additional characters with completely unique gameplay (such as a melee-only character), based on community feedback and ideas we receive over the course of development.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access release is a fully playable experience with polished gameplay, high variety of advanced AI for enemies, countless spell/talent/attunement combinations to create unique and fun character builds and full-blown, epic boss battles.”

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

“Yes, we will gradually increase the price on each major release based on the amount of new content and features added.”

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

“The highest quality of feedback we can receive comes from an engaged and healthy community. We will keep a close relationship with our players, engaging on multiple social media platforms, watching their content, and working as hard as possible to fulfill our shared vision for the best game Deathtide Survivors, and the entire 'Hordelike' genre can be. Anyone is welcome on our Discord, so join us for a chat and tell us what you think!”

About This Game

Horde Survival Reimagined

Deathtide Survivors is a Hordelike (Horde-Survival Roguelite) where you fight powerful bosses and endless tides of the undead. Unlock ancient powers and create overpowered builds, conquer brutal challenges and become an epic bullet-hell Final Boss even hundreds of enemies struggle to take down.

Inspired by classic ARPGs and Roguelites, Deathtide Survivors brings a whole new approach to the 'Hordelike' subgenre, adding unique gameplay elements that enhance and polish the game experience.

You're in Charge

While autocast Spells are fundamental to Hordelike gameplay, in Deathtide Survivors you have full control of special abilities that can change the tide of battle, making room for skillful plays and that powerful feeling of being unstoppable.

  • Ultimates: Powerful spells with long cooldowns, that can be cast whenever you want. Use them for a tactical retreat or to push forward and show your true power.

  • Dash: You can dodge to gain temporary immunity for a short time, quickly gain ground against fleeing enemies or reposition yourself when in danger.

  • Consumables: Items such as potions and magic scrolls are plentiful, but can only be used once or twice before running out.

Items can be found in the shop, or on chests carried by Elite enemies and bosses.

Against All Odds

The bulk of the undead horde is weak and mindless, but you will be challenged by the powerful Elite forces. With advanced Artificial Intelligence that reads the ever changing battlefield and works together to bring you down, you can expect a fun and engaging combat experience. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Necromancer: Their primary goal is to protect the undead horde, healing and resurrecting the enemies you slay.

  • Mage: They will predict your movements to try and corner you with well placed spells and if threatened will retreat behind Guardians or Necromancers for protection.

  • Champion: These fallen warriors have superior tactics and are able to intercept your movements, blocking your escape route when you're surrounded.

The Goblin Looter is not undead, and he doesn't care about anything other than stealing your precious XP!

Play Your Way

Deathtide respects both casual and hardcore players alike. You can just have fun on Normal mode and pick whichever spell seems cooler to massacre endless amounts of undead, or you can dive deep into theorycrafting to make the most powerful builds imaginable to beat Nightmare mode.

  • Unique Spells: There are no duplicates or redundant spells, making the choice between them more impactful, and build-crafting more fun.

  • Rerolls: Who doesn't love RNG? 69% of players don't. Or was it 33%? Regardless, with rerolls you have a chance to fight back against your bad luck when you level up and select your spells, giving you greater chances to create a fun build.

  • Elemental Powers: Every spell has an element that stacks a distinct and powerful effect on enemies, creating great potential for synergies and unique playstyles.

  • Talents: You cannot take all of them at once, but they can be freely swapped, reset or saved in loadouts to help with build experimentation.

  • Attunement: You can only pick one! Attunements are the base of your build, prizing certain aspects of gameplay while overlooking (or sacrificing) others, each one grants a unique game experience, making builds unique and diverse.

You can check all your unlocks at the Library.

A Clash Of Titans

What better way to show off your might than toppling down giants? Each map comes with 3 fully fledged, multi-phase boss battles. Show them who is the real boss and bask in their epic loot.

Avoid the noxious poison of the Plaguebringer in Act I

An Ever Evolving story

Follow in the footsteps of the Deathslayer, a righteous Justicar fighting against Death itself during the End Times. You will explore a dead world torn by the ravages of time and conflict, finding pieces of history scattered throughout the maps, and reading about the lore on spell descriptions and character dialogues.

Each major update will bring a new Act: A new map, the next chapter of the storyline and vast amounts of content with new spells, talents, attunements, enemies, bosses, balance changes, etc...
