New Blood Interactive has announced today that DUSK, its Quake-inspired retro FPS developed by David Szymanski and featuring a soundtrack by metal mastermind Andrew Hulshult (IDKFA, Rise of the Triad), is now available on Steam Early Access. In order to celebrate this launch, the team has also released a new trailer for DUSK that you can view below.
The Early Access release of DUSK includes Episode 1, which has received fan praise and media acclaim for its quick action and unapologetic homages to the mid-nineties FPS genre, and introduces Episode 2 for the first time. In addition to the campaign episodes and endless survival mode, the Early Access release also now includes the open beta run of DUSKWorld, the multiplayer component of DUSK – so you can shoot your friends in the face with double barreled shotguns.
Still to come in Early Access over the coming weeks is Episode 3, Endless Arena 3, achievements, trading cards, leaderboards and more.
DUSK transports players into and underneath the creepy backwoods of the American Northeast where you wake up hanging on a meat hook and must escape using any means necessary (dual sickles in this case). In this Quake-meets-Cabin-In-The-Woods retro FPS , you’ll encounter an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces as you attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth as things get deeper and darker.
