Retro FPS DUSK gets launch date

Slaughter dark forces from beneath the earth with swords, shotguns and more.

Retro revival shooter DUSK has received a launch date, bringing an end to the Early Access phase that launched back in January of this year.

Survive the night against various evildoers after waking up strung up on meat hooks in a northeastern U.S. backwoods farmhouse and utilize a mind-blowing amount of badass weaponry including sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, dual-wielded shotguns and incredibly necessary grenade and rocket launchers. Battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth.

Inspired by Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, Half-Life and other golden-era shooters, DUSK challenges players with several game modes including the game’s main three-part campaign, Endless Survival Mode and online multiplayer arena, “DUSKWorld.” Developed by David Szymanski (The Moon Silver, A Wolf in Autumn, The Music Machine) DUSK is set to a ridiculously raw and epic metal soundtrack by Andrew Hulshult (Rise of the Triad, Quake Champions).

The full version of DUSK will officially launch on Steam on December 10th at a launch price of $16.66, down from the current price of $20. Currently showcasing two of the game’s three distinct campaign episodes and arena multiplayer on Steam Early Access, the game has been a breakout hit for boutique label New Blood Interactive and hosts some of the highest ratings for a first person shooter on Steam. Developer New Blood has also announced today that everyone who purchased DUSK before Halloween in Early Access will be receiving the DUSK 50+ page graphic novel for free.
