'Betrayer' Gets Release Date

by Rainier on March 10, 2014 @ 3:00 p.m. PDT

Betrayer is an eerie and atmospheric first-person action adventure game. You wash you ashore in the New World in 1604, where you’re expecting to join a struggling English colony on the Virginia coast.

Instead you find only ghosts and mysteries in a land drained of color and life. You’ll build up an arsenal of weaponry including muskets, crossbows and throwing axes, collecting untold treasures along the way. Chart your own course through an untamed wilderness teeming with danger and discovery as you search for survivors and unravel the colony’s many mysteries, including the identity of the strange, silent woman in red who helps from afar.

“Since shipping FEAR almost 10 years ago, we've been wanting to create a player-driven game that emphasizes exploration and discovery with minimal hand-holding,” says the game’s designer and writer, Craig Hubbard. "We're ecstatic to finally get the chance."

“Ultimately, what we’re proudest of is that Betrayer is distinctive. When you’re setting out to create a first person action game with seven people, the biggest fear is that you’ll make something redundant: a cheap version of a bigger, better title. But I feel confident saying you haven’t played anything quite like this.”

Key Features

  • Chart your own course through an untamed wilderness teeming with danger and discovery.
  • Unravel the colony’s many mysteries by gathering clues and awakening the memories of the dreaming dead.
  • Build up an arsenal of early 17th century weaponry including muskets, bows, crossbows, and throwing axes.
  • Collect untold treasures hidden in the wilds by the colonists for reasons you will come to understand in time.

Betrayer, powered by Unreal Engine 3, is the self-funded debut of Blackpowder Games, which was founded by ex-Monolith developers known as the creative team responsible for the No One Lives Forever series and the original F.E.A.R.

Betrayer will be available for €18.99/$14.99
