In a press release, New Blood Interactive has announced that DUSK multiplayer beta is now out in the wild! Called “DuskWorld,” the closed beta for the retro shooter won’t require you to pre-order the game, but rather, just have you sign up to New Blood’s Discord channel (Discord.gg/NewBlood).
Check out the DuskWorld trailer below.
DUSK’s Steam page can be seen here, and we’ve also relayed some bits about the game readers might want to know.
DUSK reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered if you’re to survive ’til dawn. Inspired by Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your ’90s favorites, and featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.
In THREE distinct campaign episodes hand-crafted from straight outta the ’90s, players battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the earth. Featuring a vast arsenal of badass weaponry including saw blades, dual-wielded shotguns from 1887 and an incredibly necessary grenade launcher, DUSK is unapologetic retro action from start to finish.
In addition to the main campaign, DUSK features an Endless Survival Mode, putting you front and center of wave after wave of enemies. For those looking for an extra challenge, DUSK also offers the chance to go head to head online to battle your friends in arena multiplayer, where darkness hosts the worst of humanity in surprising new ways.
For those looking forward to some old-school Quake action, DUSK might be the game that scratches that itch.
