What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For us it is very simple, we need the players help to balance and improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as it takes to make it perfect. Simply put, when it’s done! We estimate that it will not take more than 12 months.”

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

“The full version will include translations for most common languages. Updated animations, sounds and models. More levels and game-modes. Updated and improved AI for offline games and for the Infected. It will be a very solid product that will last for a long time.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“When you get your hands on The Plague, you will find most of the game implemented already. 2 teams, 4 classes, +10 types of infected, about 30 different weapons, 6 maps and 2 game modes. The game is fully working in its current state and could be a finished game, but we have plans for much more.”

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

“Currently we have no plans to have a different pricing for the full release. As a Early Access adopter you will get your hands on a game that is not fully done, but perfectly playable and totally filled with fun. You will have access to the game while we add the rest of the planned stuff, and you get to be a part of that with your input.”

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

“For the game to be as fun and good as it should be, we need to be very close to the players. The game is for the players, so without their input we can only take our best guess. So we have several ways for them to communicate directly with us. There is a forum for discussions, we have text and voice channels running on Discord. We will also listen to everything that's being said here on our Steam community.”

We need you! Apply to become a BETA tester!


Do you want to help test our latest game?

The Plague has now reached its BETA stage, and it is time to get your help in taking it toward its Early Access release. As a beta-tester you’ll get access to the game before it is released to the general public and a chance to get your ideas into the game during its final stage of development.

We are looking for someone who has a great interest in games and game development. It is a great advantage if you like games with first person melee fights and the medieval era. Also a huge advantage if you have previous experience in testing games, but it’s not a must.

To become a beta tester you are required to:
  1. Be at least 18 years old.
  2. Have you own computer equipment and high-speed internet.
  3. Approve and sign our BETA and NDA documents.
  4. Be fluent in english.

It is a great plus if you:
  1. Have knowledge about the Unreal Engine 4.
  2. Released a game before.
  3. Understands what it is to be a gametester*

What will be required of you during the beta:
  1. Identify and report bugs. Also verify that the bugs have been fixed.
  2. Write and give constructive feedback.
  3. Attend the mandatory play-tests.
  4. Leave regular reports.

Failure to meet these requirements will result in your beta access being revoked and you will not receive any complimentary keys.

This is a Non-Employee employment. In other words, you will not get paid. The reward for your work is to be able to play the game, give your input and help make a better game. You will also get several license keys for the full product to use as you wish. The greater part of this work is done on your own, but there will be mandatory playtests and you are also expected to leave reports regularly.

Please send you application to us at: betatester@frostyelk.se
Include a short description of yourself, so we can get a feeling for who you are, what games you play, games you have previous helped test etc.

We look forward to reading your application!

About This Game


From the creator of Age of Chivalry comes The Plague, a True FPS action game set in a medieval themed fictional world. It is a multiplayer game that is designed to be played together with other players online. Non player characters and AI-driven bots are also a part of the game. 2 factions, 4 classes and lots of infected. Play as Archer, Crusader, Plague Doctor or Blacksmith.



It all begun hundred of years ago in a land divided by two rival factions. Both factions believe they have the right to the throne, and have been waging war over the crown for as long as anyone can remember.

But death takes its toll, corpses and blood red rivers makes the perfect growing grounds for diseases of all kinds. Where and why it all begun, is still unknown. At first it was only a few infected, in a small village. But it rapidly grew and spread all over the lands.

The two factions who once where fighting each other, now must stand side by side to fight an even greater enemy, the Plague! But the hate remains strong within the factions, and it is not with joy that they must to seek help from the enemy.
There are a few places where the plague has not yet reached, these places now have huge value. The plague knows no boundaries, only the strongest will stand tall, only the strongest survivor will rule.

Take sides in the battle against a greater enemy. Fight the enemy, the plague and in the end be the last one standing! Choose your style of gaming, be the team support or on the frontline. Play as an Archer, Crusader, Plague Doctor or as a Blacksmith. The four classes are each needed to form the perfect team and become the winners.



Each map tells its story and has its own style of gameplay. From a carrying a ladder to besiege a castle wall to killing 1000 of Infected.

2 factions, 4 classes and lots of infected. Play as Archer, Crusader, Plague Doctor or Blacksmith. Each character is needed to make up a perfect team.





Archer
The Archer is the light class, she has speed and agility as well as impressive skills with ranged weapons. The bow, and crossbow are the favourites in her arsenal. A small axe can be used for quick attacks in close quarters. To keep her enemies at range, she has a bag full of caltrops to slow them down.

Crusader
The almost perfect soldier. He is all that you want from a melee fighter. Swords and shields are his weapons of choice. For ranged combat he has daggers that he can throw.

Plague Doctor
If you loose your head to a sword, then there is no need to call on the doctor. But if you are hurt or bleeding, then the doctor has the medicine to get you going. Whatever the toxic is, that the good doctor keeps in his syringe matters not, as long as he gets you going. Better keep him as a friend, as the toxic mixtures that he keeps can also be as deadly for a foe. He also has an axe for close encounters and has bottles of fumes that blurs the vision and makes for a great escape.

Blacksmith
With his hammer he can do miracles. He can build siege engines, repair broken structures. He also manufactures weapons, arrows and other stuff you need to keep the battle going. Fire is an element that he knows well and use in all forms. Build Ammocrates, Bear traps or Firecages to aid your team.
