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.

“We wanted to get back to crafting games more intuitively,” said Creative Director Craig Hubbard. “There’s a sense of discovery and excitement when you navigate by instinct rather than market research and open yourself up to opportunities that arise during development.”

Betrayer 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, powered by Unreal Engine 3, is set to release as a Steam Early Access title in August.
