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

Epic fantasy adventure meets team-based survival in Rend. Inspired by the fabled universe of Nordic myth, the world of Rend is a harsh domain where the strong ascend as gods. Players must choose among three rival factions, combine forces to build their faction’s stronghold, and battle foes and brutal creatures. Together, they will endure the dangers of Rend’s treacherous landscapes to discover valuable resources and powerful artifacts. With the game’s deep talent trees and skill systems, players have the freedom to choose how they want to play and how they want to fight. When a cycle ends, one faction will be declared the winner… but the end is only the beginning. Victorious players receive rewards they can use in subsequent cycles as they ascend to legendary heights as heroes. For more information, visit: www.RendGame.com
