'Kingshunt' Gets Steam Early Access Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 26, 2022 @ 5:20 p.m. PDT

Kingshunt is a 3rd person online multiplayer action game, combining the genres of tower defense, real-time strategy and hack and slash.

Set in a gorgeous medieval fantasy world, Kinghunt players take part in online multiplayer battles on a colossal scale.

Join the fight and carve a path of destruction across the battlefield in a game that mixes strategy with fast-paced hero combat.

Kingshunt combines the best and most ruthless aspects of combat in tower defence and souls-like games with the tactical nous required in real-time strategy games. Choose your hero, join the fight and carve a path of destruction across the battlefield in this fast-paced thriller that mixes skill with visceral hero combat.

Kingshunt’s gameplay pits two teams of heroes against each other in intense 5v5 matches. One group, the Defenders, consists of the forces of Light and the Attackers consists of the forces of Undead. Each game is set across two intense phases with changing objectives. At the end of each step, a powerful AI-controlled Guardian appears, blocking the attackers’ progress to the next stage. Battle-hardened teams of attackers must then face-off against their foe and vanquish it to progress to the next phase. 

Combat is strategic and deliberate. Survival demands superior awareness, precision, and instincts. You must commit your sword only when an opportunity opens. Calculate your opponents moves to unleash devastating counterblows.

Heroes are the essential element of Kingshunt, as the course of the game is dependent on their intervention. Play character that best fits your style and utilizes their own unique mastery of skills and abilities. As a hero gains experience, they will gain power increasing Runes and course of the battle changing Utilities, creating new unique playstyles. All heroes have distinct roles that define how they affect the battlefield.

Painstakingly created and masterfully crafted over four years by a core development team of just ten people, Kingshunt blends multiple game-genre mechanics against a medieval high-fantasy backdrop complete with castles, knights and monsters. Designed as a mix of brawler and hero shooter, Kingshunt fuses viscera ranged and melee combat with strategic depth as players spawn AI minions to help them dominate the battlefield, adding an RTS feel to the gameplay. Players can select from a  roster of unique heroes with their own weapons, skills, and fighting styles. Combatants can also earn Rune points during battles, which they can use to upgrade their character and enhance their chosen playing style.


Publisher A List Games and Finnish developer Vaki Games announced that Kingshunt will be launching into Steam Early Access on November 3, 2022 for $19.99.
