Death Garden’s Closed Alpha launches tomorrow and hopes to create a solid foundation for the game.
Behaviour Digital will begin their closed alpha testing tomorrow for their new upcoming Asymmetrical Dystopian shooter: Death Garden. Players will don roles of either a runner or a hunter. Hunters chase runners on a procedurally generated map while they complete objectives.
Testing Begins on May 9th and will continue until May 13th until the end of the day. This testing period will serve as a period for feedback on gameplay and to build an online infurstructure.
Some may be familiar with Behaviour’s other asymmetrical horror title, Dead by Daylight. Death Garden hopes to polarize the experience of the game in numerous ways. Dead by Daylight is a slower, more cautious game of hide and seek. Where as in Death Garden, Runners stand more of a chance to defend themselves against the deadly hunter in a fast paced environment with a more vertical terrain . Players will also be able to choose a loose role to play in fending off the Hunter stalking you. Each round, on top of choosing a class, players have access to a skill tree where they need to choose which powers to upgrade. The creative director, Ashley Pannell, wanted to create a competitive game
“where controls are always responsive for both the runner and the hunter. It is about the users’ abilities and the choices they make to master the map.”
We were fortunate enough to experience Death Garden at PAX East 2018, and were very pleased with what was showcased and look forward to what’s to come. For a full recap of Death Garden, check out our first impressions.
To get all the details, players can watch the Kickoff Livestream on May 9th, at 2PM EST on Twitch.tv/deathgardengame. For those who want to participate in Deathgarden’s PC Closed Alpha program visit www.deathgardengame.com.
