Betrayer, a first-person shooter set in colonial Virginia from the former developers of FEAR and No One Lives Forever at Monolith Productions, was announced today and is headed to Steam Early Access Aug. 14, according to developer Blackpowder Games.
The self-funded Windows PC game sets players in the Virginia colony in 1604, where ghosts and mysteries abound in a high-contrast world. Created in Unreal Engine 3, Betrayer will equip players with weapons they might expect from the era, including crossbows, muskets and axes as they search for survivors and solve mysteries. The game will be available for $15 on Steam, PC Gamer reports.
"We wanted to get back to crafting games more intuitively," creative director Craig Hubbard said. "There's a sense of discovery and excitement when you navigate by instinct rather than market research and open yourself up to opportunities that arise during development."
