Usurpator is a multiplayer online brawler with fast paced action oriented combat, in a rich medieval fantasy world.

Usurpator is an isometric melee slasher game with an action oriented combat system. Face your foes in arena battles and master combat to win fights in either coop or PvP gamemodes.

Roam the Arena, pick up orbs to replenish health for the next fight and gather mighty powerups! Take your weapons of choice to dominate your enemies and cleanse the land of their reign. Swing your weapon at your enemy, parry and block incoming attacks with correct timing or avoid them by rolling out of harm's way!. Fight other players or fight together in coop adventures in a rich medieval fantasy world where you can choose from various classes with different weapons and combat-styles, from one handed swords to huge battle hammers!

Fight intense, up to 16 players online battles in Deathmatch and Team-Deathmatch game modes. Play together with your friends against AI in objective based levels.

Austria based developer Reigen Games has launched a Usurpator kickstarter campaign, looking to raise $37,656.

And it has been quite a ride. During the last two and a half years we expanded our idea of an arena fighter not only in terms of design but also in terms of content. Both of us worked in the games industry for several years now until we decided to go indie.

It started as a small idea. As small project. As a small game. And suddenly we were working day and night and spent every free minute to create something outstanding, fun and visceral. Usurpator went through multiple stages and iterations to become what it is today: an isometric action game where you slay your opponents in spectacular ways. Inspired by the Gladiator fights in Rome, it became its own thing.

While we planned to have brutal and visceral combat, we ended up having not only that but also multiple and creative game modes (and plans for additional ones), massive design options for your Characters and multiple classes. We ended up with a dynamic hit system also support dynamic damage values depending on your hits, also supporting combos during combat. All based on a strong net-code for quick and intense online fights, all connected to a fully fleshed out (and yet to be fine tuned) progression system.

Interested fans can try out the playable demo on Steam.

Key Features:

  • Online play: Fight intense online battles with up to 16 players in Deathmatch and Team-Deathmatch game modes.
  • Cooperative play: Play together with your friends against AI in objective based levels.
  • Classes: You can choose from various classes with different weapons and combat-styles. The arsenal ranges from one-handed swords to huge battle hammers! Something for every play style.
  • Customization: You can unlock many gear and equipment options to customize the look of your character the way you want.
  • Visceral and intense combat: Strike your enemies, feel every blow you land and even send some limbs flying when you finish them off!

Usurpator (previously called Clans Of Reign) is in development for PC (Steam).
