FORMER “JUST CAUSE” KEY DEVELOPER HAS A FRESH TAKE ON THE MOBA GENRE.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A group of Swedish game developer veterans has come together to make  Deadbreed — a darker hardcore MOBA with unprecedented hero customizability and RPG gameplay features.

Stockholm, Sweden — January 5th, 2014 — the high-end next generation MOBA, Deadbreed, is the first release from the Swedish stealth startup. “I wanted to play a MOBA where I could totally customize how my hero looked and, more importantly played, but I couldn’t find one,” explains Stefan Ljungqvist, developer at the Stockholm based studio.

“Talking to friends, I realized I wasn’t the only one wanting this, so we decided to make it. Also, this was our chance to make a darker themed MOBA for hardcore gamers like ourselves and bring in some additional RPG gameplay features.” The response from Deadbreed’s weeks old Steam Greenlight campaign and community feedback indicate that many gamers seem to agree.

“After a decade of making triple A action console games, it feels good to return to your roots,” continues Stefan, who also has a background as a pen-and-paper RPG and miniatures games designer. “It feels great to make monsters again!”

Deadbreed is currently accepting signups for its upcoming closed Beta and is available for PC.
