[Steam page] Founded by industry veterans who worked on games such as Warcraft 3, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Dragon Age: Origins, and WildStar, Frostkeep Studios recently came out of the shadows to introduce its first game, Rend. Described as a “hybrid survival” title, players are introduced to a brutal fantasy world, where they must band together to battle enemy creatures and players.
Players must choose to join 1 of 3 available factions before deciding how they want to contribute to the faction’s cause – from harvesting, gathering or crafting roles to more intense assassin, soldier and hunter role options. Regardless of play style, there is a role, place and purpose for every type of player. Factions must then build a base and protect it from monsters and rival factions weekly.
As you can see, Rend features both PVE and PVP at the same time. Once a winning faction is declared, data will be wiped off, and players will receive rewards to start all over again. Another awesome system is the real-time environment featuring a day-to- night cycle, weather, and temperature survival. Rend is scheduled to enter Steam Early Access this Spring.
