What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After running a semi-open beta for quite some time now, we've come to the stage where we need more player feedback: Boreal Blade has several different game modes like Team Deathmatch, Boreal Battle and Boreal Claim, and by doing Early Access we're hoping to get more input on what players find most enjoyable and fun. So we're doing Early Access to figure out exactly what we need to focus on with development, along with polish and bug fixing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access around one year, however this may change depending on player feedback and the scope and number of new features added.”

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

“The full release version will be more polished, with all major bugs and issues fixed. We have a good set of gameplay modes, maps and unlocks available at Early Access release, but depending on how the Early Access evolves, we may add new features and more of everything for the full release too.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version is fully playable in online multiplayer, with all game modes, unlocks, progression and stats. There will be some bugs present, but nothing serious.

The game has four playable game modes (Duel, Team Deathmatch, Boreal Battle and Boreal Claim), 11 different maps, as well as hundreds of weapons, shields, pieces of armour and battle items.”

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

“We may increase the price during Early Access and upon full release, but will announce these well in advance.”

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

“Our community will be closely involved with the development, as we hope to hear as much feedback as possible here on the Steam community forums, as well as on our Discord server.”

About This Game

Fight for a cause worth dying for


Boreal Blade is a team-based melee fighting game with a focus on player vs player combat, combining reactionary and tactical gameplay with extraordinary freedom to variate your attacks and develop your unique fighting style.

The game features four distinctive fighting styles with the possibility to choose between one-handed and two-handed weapons, a shield and a weapon combo, long thrusting pole weapons and fighting unarmed. Players can even throw items during battle! Three armour classes with their strengths and weaknesses are also included to guarantee a varied, ever-alterable fighting experience. Arm yourself and prepare to dive into the battle!

KEY FEATURES



  • Reactionary and tactical gameplay: Complete freedom of attack and block direction performed with simple controls, allowing players to concentrate on their battle tactics and series of manoeuvres and to control the flow of the battle. There are hundreds of ways to variate attacks and players have complete freedom to move the weapon and player character around, encouraging them to experiment and find the fighting style that suits them best.


  • Four multiplayer game modes: Players can charge into combat together with their clan mate warriors in Team Deathmatch and Boreal Battle modes where two teams go up against each other. Boreal Claim mode consists of two teams who take turns attacking or defending a banner against the other team. In Deathmatch it is everyone for themselves – the first warrior to get 20 kills wins the match!


  • Four different fighting styles: Hundreds of weapons, shields, pieces of armour and battle items for developing customized fighting styles and battle tactics.

  • Detailed character creation and game world: Create your warrior and choose their equipment, accessories and weapons and customize their appearance with jewellery, facial hair and armour dyes. Explore the different fighting arenas across the Nordic mythology inspired, paintinglike Norvalg.
