Indie developer Blackfox Studios along with publisher Fatshark announced that their turn-based post-apocalypse shared world Dreadlands has started its Beta.
The world of Dreadlands is a living post-apocalyptic shared landscape where players will travel across its many regions with their ragtag gang of mercenaries and depraved types. Set in a shared world, players will frequently cross paths with other players. Whether they cooperate or start all all out bloody PvP battle is up to them.
During the Beta players will have a chance to choose between two gang factions in the Dreadlands. There are 15 different chapters for players to explore in 11 different world zones and 19 unique settlements to discover. In addition, the first-ever PvP Season of Dreadlands will take place where the winner will get immortalized in the Dreadlands as their gang will be featured as NPC’s in the main campaign.
We are extremely excited to roll out the Beta and we can’t wait to see people take their first fledgling steps in the weird and wondrous world of Dreadlands.Peter Nilsson, Founder, and Creative Director Blackfox Studios
