Behaviour Digital has revealed that Deathgarden will enter Steam Early Access on Aug. 14, kicking off with a free week of gameplay for all players until Aug. 21. Set in the near future, Deathgarden is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where a powerful Hunter preys in first-person on a team of five agile Runners playing in third-person in fast-paced matches.
Soft Launch and Pre-order Offer
Behaviour also announced that players who participated in Deathgarden’s alpha or beta – plus those who have pre-ordered the game – are invited to play during the soft launch of early access, which begins today. Progression made during early access will carry forward to the game’s official release, expected in early 2019 on Windows PC.
Deathgarden is available to pre-order now through Aug. 13 for $29.99 at deathgardengame.com/preorder. Pre-orders are automatically upgraded to the Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes exclusive Origin cosmetic sets, a digital copy of the game’s soundtrack, and a digital art book. Players must pre-order or purchase Deathgarden to join early access following the free week event.
Console Launch in 2019
Behaviour is also pleased to announce that Deathgarden will make its way to consoles – on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One – early in 2019.
