Darksburg enters into closed beta today and opens player registration


Shiro Games have announced that they have launched their over-the-top medieval zombie co-op game Darksburg into closed beta on Steam today. Open for all, players keen to join the closed beta can now register their interest on the following page.

A new trailer for Darksburg can be viewed here.

In Darksburg, up to four players team up to rid the titular medieval town of the ravenous zombies that have overrun it. To survive the undead horde, various colourful characters with special powers and abilities are at the player’s disposal, including Varag, escaped werewolf and man’s part-time best friend, or the viciously compassionate Sister Abigail.

Offering the best of challenging, fast-paced cooperative teamplay, players in Darksburg face off against the devious Revenants. These powerful zombie characters, either controlled by the AI or other humans in versus mode, will try their darndest to ambush our heroic band of misfits and thwart them in their quest for safety. Quick reflexes and expert use of the survivors’ distinctive abilities are needed to complete each objective-based map or to survive against overwhelming odds in the gruelling Last Stand mode.

The Darksburg closed beta will feature four playable Survivors and Revenants, three maps, and all the game modes, including Last Stand. The game is still in active development, with Shiro Games planning to allow testers to enter the closed beta at set intervals in the lead-up to the full launch sometime in February 2020.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
