IRVINE, CALIF. – July 11, 2018 – Frostkeep Studios, an independent game studio formed by veteran World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and League of Legends developers, announced today that after a period of constructive community feedback during its closed alpha of Rend, the new faction-based fantasy survival game will launch its beta on Steam Early Access later this month.
Beginning on Tuesday, July 31, players can purchase Rend for $29.99 and immediately align themselves with one of three factions before they’re dropped into the beautiful, brutal world of Rend to experience its fierce Norse-inspired battles and gameplay.
“Early access marks a pivotal moment for Frostkeep Studios,” said Jeremy Wood, co-founder and CEO, Frostkeep Studios. “We have been developing Rend side-by-side with our players since we first announced the game and are grateful for the invaluable feedback they provided to help shape Rend into what it has become today: the game they want to play,” said Jeremy Wood, co-founder and CEO, Frostkeep Studios.
Rend introduces RPG mechanics, factional combat, sandbox elements, win/loss conditions, and massive culminating battles to the survival genre to deliver an entirely new gameplay experience for players.

Epic fantasy adventure meets team-based survival in Rend. Inspired by 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 as they ascend to legendary heights as heroes. For more information, visit: www.RendGame.com.
