What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because while we are incredibly proud of our work so far on Darksburg, our main goal is to make a game that you guys want to play. And there’s no better way to do this than to involve you in every step of the development process, remaining transparent throughout as we implement features, improvements and ideas that appeal to our players and contribute towards developing a much more interesting environment in which to bash zombie brains in.

And with Darksburg drawing inspiration from such a wide range of games and genres, bringing it to early access allows us to start cutting the fat and streamlining the core of the game while we develop something that unfortunately doesn't really have any direct competitors for us to shamelessly copy.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our current estimation is between 6-12 months but it could be even sooner, that’s the beauty of Early Access.

As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day. But Rome also didn’t release into early access allowing the people of Italy direct involvement into how it should be built. If it did, it might have been built in a day, who knows?”

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

“Throughout Early Access, we plan to release a number of updates that will add new content to the game, ranging from characters, levels, game modes and more. Alongside these updates we will be seeing regular improvements, bug fix and balance patches.

We expect Darksburg to grow exponentially over the course of the early access period, and are fully prepared to alter course based on user feedback and any cool ideas you guys might come up with as we continue to develop the game together.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is in beta, with all included levels at release quality, featuring around 75% of our planned voice acting and with each time you play a level, slight changes will alter your experience; paths may vary, different enemies will spawn and items will appear at different locations, ensuring there are always new ways to approach and enjoy the game.

And as mentioned, we will be adding content, updating features, iterating and developing the game in order to align with community expectations throughout the whole process too!”

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

“Darksburg will have a set introductory Early Access price before a small increase upon its official release”

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

“We encourage our Early Access users to join us on Discord, where the whole development team is available and anxiously awaiting your feedback and suggestions. We will have an in game feature that allows you to send direct bug reports and we will also be closely monitoring the Steam Community forums.

And obviously, we want to make the game that you guys want to play, so user feedback and suggestions will be a pillar of this development process and will be integral in shaping Darksburg ahead of its official release.”

About This Game

Darksburg is a cooperative survival action game where you must team up to survive against the hordes of Infected that have decided to settle down in the quaint little town of Darksburg.

Assume the role of one of the heroic Survivors or (If you’re feeling particularly nefarious) join the ranks of the devious Revenants, each with their own unique skills and personalities, and master their abilities in an over-the-top struggle against overwhelming odds!

  • Master the arts of cooperative gameplay to survive the relentless hordes of Infected that have taken over Darksburg.
  • Explore a number of zombie infested locales with different objectives and gameplay modes, including the infamous and unforgiving Last Stand!
  • Manage (very) limited resources and master each Survivor’s unique skills to prevail!
  • Take control of the Revenants and rid the town of those troublesome Survivors!
  • Challenge yourself and your team with the highest difficulty levels for even greater rewards.
  • Improve and personalise your favorite Survivors with items and unlockable skills.

The streets of Darksburg await you… Team up with an audacious band of survivors and overcome the hordes of infected that plague the town in Survival mode or turn your back on humanity, join the Revenants grotesque ranks and thwart the survivors in PvP!

Your choice, we don’t judge.

As the old saying goes, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies as far away as possible because they’re zombies, and they want to eat you.” Or maybe it’s just these guys that say that? Anyway... Meet the Survivors!

An unconventional alliance consisting of a nun, gourmet, bounty hunter (and her chipmunk) and a wolfman, who together must make their way through the streets of Darksburg and achieve the almost insurmountable task of navigating this wretched town unscathed.

Each with unique abilities and movesets, they will have to work together if they are to make it out of Darksburg in one piece.

What’s the point of having a group of heroes without a few larger than life villains to oppose them? Enter, The Revenants. These formerly notorious inhabitants of Darksburg succumbed to the infection shortly after the outbreak with... interesting results.

Far more dangerous than your average zombie, each of these grotesque malformations will use every underhanded technique they’ve honed since their transformation to separate and stop the survivors at all costs.

With its rustic charm, gothic architecture, meandering streets and deep and vibrant history, this town was once a pretty appealing destination for many.

But tourism’s dropped off a bit lately, probably because some cool buildings and scenic views don’t make up for the townsfolk’s occasional tendency of trying to eat your brains...

Darksburg is not a very big town, but its harbour is one of the livelier ones in the Dreadmire county. Well, at least it used to be. With all the undead folk stumbling around now, to describe it as “lively” would be disingenuous.

Formerly scenic and zombie-free, the faubourg is the quiet, wheat covered rural area that separates Darksburg from the Monastery. If zombies ate wheat, this whole situation would be a lot more manageable.

Ah, Darksburg’s marketplace... the hustle and bustle, the merchants’ outcry, the zombies lumbering between stalls full of rotten food… That last bit’s a recent development.

Who isn’t a fan of the tried and true ‘play as the good guys' formula? Well, that’s what PvE is all about! Join the Survivors in their fight against the devious Revenants and the zombie horde that have taken over the town as you complete objectives and do everything you can to ensure your continued survival.

Is humanity overrated? Does destroying the hopes and dreams of innocent Survivors have a certain allure? Do you have a seething hatred for chipmunks? Well this mode’s for you! Take control of the Revenants and utilise their arsenal of malevolent abilities to foil those pesky Survivors so you can get back to an uninterrupted life of doing whatever superpowered zombies do.

We missed a trick by not calling this Zombie horde mode, but I digress... Choose your Survivor and try your best to withstand an overwhelming onslaught of Zombies and Revenants in the gruelling Last Stand mode!


How did this outbreak start? Where are all these zombies coming from? Why do I feel such a deep sense of satisfaction killing them when the braziers are lit? Who keeps opening these gates to let more in? Is this a game to them?!

These are the questions you’ll be asking as you fend off progressively challenging waves of the undead and revenants in an attempt to maintain sanity and survive this very impractical situation.


One quick and simple way to taint your fresh water supply is to add a few kilos of undead corpses, that’s a fact.

Therefore, it is your job to not only overcome 20 increasingly difficult waves of the oncoming undead horde, but also to stop them from hurling themselves down the Farmlands well. Because for some inexplicable reason they seem to like doing that.

But hey, don’t let that fact that zombie attack rates are at an all time high discourage you, Darksburg still has an awful lot going for it! So why not stop by for a visit?
