Twain Harte, CA – October 17, 2012 – After a successful crowd-funding campaign and praise from gaming press following their large beta and this year's PAX Prime tournament, 2 Dawn Games and Reverb Publishing announce today the highly-anticipated, online multiplayer first-person shooter Ravaged is now available for Windows PC from Steam, Rain Digital Games, 2DawnGames, GameStop, Gamers Gate, Origin, and GameFly.
Also released today is a free playable demo compatible with the retail version, enabling demo players and retail players to compete in the same matches.
Designed by AAA industry veterans 2 Dawn Games, Ravaged ’s savage and frenetic vehicular and foot-based multiplayer combat is precisely what many FPS gamers have been clamoring for.
“Ravaged is a post-doomsday shooter that sets itself apart from the competition with brutal kills, gorgeous graphics, a wide variety of weapons and vehicles, and a pace and flow that ensures matches are enjoyable bouts of controlled chaos,” said Brian Harvey, director of strategic partnerships with Reverb Publishing. “It has the best assortment of features catering to the PC gaming audience that is continuing to show its support for the resurgence of first-person shooters on the platform.”
Ravaged supports PC features that other publishers have dropped in favor of console development, including: public dedicated servers; competitive support; and advanced graphic settings such as Eyefinity and Crossfire. Ravaged also licensed a new “game changing” tool for multiplayer games called FairFight by GameBlocks, which effectively and instantly deters the cheating that has plagued many of today’s most popular online games while also providing full access for the development team to monitor and customize the system.
Recognizing that many players are looking for an alternative to the grinding gameplay mechanics of some free-to-play titles, but at the same time weary of spending $60 on a hardcore title, 2 Dawn Games priced Ravaged at $24.99. The studio also offers multi-unit discounts via the “Clan Pack” containing four games for $60 (a $40 discount).
Ravaged is rated “M” for mature due to the violent subject matter, and is not intended for younger audiences.
