Frostkeep Studios is expanding the Rend alpha and inviting the public to join, so sign up for the Rend alpha for a chance to test out this incoming three-faction survival RPG!
So, according to not one but two emails the Death by Beta received yesterday, the Rend alpha test has fired up and is looking for some games to help test it out. The emails called this a public alpha test, which to me sounds more like an open alpha test, but then also stated it was invite only. That sounds more like a closed alpha test, so now I am not sure what to call it. “Rend alpha test” will have to do. Anyway, that is all semantics because all we really care about is that the Rend alpha test is now live and you can register for a chance to participate.
I hadn’t heard about Rend before yesterday, but it is being developed and published by Frostkeep Studios down in California. Indie developers for the win! From what I gather about the game, Rend is a survival RPG that is focused on a three faction war, with every player choosing to fight for one of the factions. Each faction must defend their base and territory from each other and the PvE foes. The Rend Steam page indicates that the game is both single player and multi-player, but it isn’t clear to me if that means players can choose to only engage in the PvE elements or not. Here is a blurb from the official email I received:
“Epic fantasy adventure meets team-based survival in Rend. Set in the fabled universe of Nordic myth, the world of Rend is a harsh domain where the strong ascend as gods. Players must choose among three rival factions, combine forces to build their faction’s stronghold, and battle foes and brutal creatures. Together, they will endure the dangers of Rend’s treacherous landscapes to discover valuable resources and powerful artifacts. With the game’s deep talent trees and skill systems, players have the freedom to choose how they want to play and how they want to fight. When a cycle ends, one faction will be declared the winner… but the end is only the beginning. Victorious players receive rewards they can use in subsequent cycles.”
