'Bierzerkers' Announced

Bierzerkers is a team-based, multiplayer, melee combat game set in the Viking afterlife.

Players will do battle using a variety of unique classes with stylized Norse visuals, arcade-inspired melee combat, and fierce online competition. 

“With Bierzerkers, we’re creating a unique blend of hack n' slash action inspired by our favorite melee combat games. We’re throwing realism out the window and focusing on a fun and irreverent style that seeps into every aspect of the game,” says Will Harris, lead designer. “In Bierzerkers, you will crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their sheep.” 

“Bierzerkers blew me away the first time I saw what the veterans at Shield Break were working on! With the combination of Unreal Engine 4 and their experience, it’s been miraculous what they’ve been able to accomplish in a short amount of time,” says Joe Kreiner, Epic Games’ head of Unreal Engine licensing for the Americas.

PAX Prime attendees will be able to experience Bierzerkers firsthand during the expo from August 29 to September 1 in the Unreal Engine booth, #7505 on the sixth floor of Seattle’s Washington State Convention Center.

Shield Break Studios is an independent game developer founded by veterans of Blizzard Entertainment (Warcraft/Starcraft/Diablo), Riot Games (League of Legends), Activision (Call of Duty), and Certain Affinity (Halo multiplayer).
