'Dread Templar' Early Access Update Adds Fixes, Tweaks And Re-Balancing

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2021 @ 2:00 p.m. PDT

Dread Templar is a fast-paced first-person shooter that combines elements from both modern retro shooters and classics from the 90s like Doom, Quake and Hexen.

The game combines elements from both eras such as fast-paced gameplay, dashing, headshots and bullet time so you can enjoy the old-school shooting in a modern way!

You are a Dread Templar seeking revenge deep in the evil realm. Explore the levels and solve puzzles to find hidden weapons and upgrades. Face hordes of demons and bloodthirsty fiends using your rich arsenal of katana swords, firearms, and infernal weapons that will make YOU the scariest thing in Hell. Gain Dread Powers and customize your skills according to your playstyle, as they will help you in your battle against the dark forces.

The Early Access version of Dread Templar includes the game’s first two chapters, with 10 demon-infested levels, over 70 upgradable skills, more than 10 weapons, and over 15 enemy types to test the Templar’s tools of the trade on.

This update brings a brand new level statistics screen, rebalancing of the Hell Knight boss fight, SoundFX improvements, save point addition and location adjustment along with numerous other fixes and tweaks that will make the game even more enjoyable.
