Survived By roguelike

Do you miss retro-styled bullet-hell games such as Realm of the Mad God? Then we have great news for you! Two renowned studios have teamed up for the creation of Survived By, a free-to-play roguelike MMO with permadeath: Warframe and The Amazing Eternals makers Digital Extremes, and Prey developer Human Head Studios are responsible for this game.

Survived By is… think Dark Souls gone retro, if you will. The blurb says that “Every time you die, you’re survived by a new descendant who carries a small part of your legacy with them.” What this means is that some things such as stat boosts or buffs will pass along to your new character, hopefully making the experience a little bit easier during the next playthrough. Up to 100 players will be fighting at the same time, and the developers promise that the experience will be the fair kind of free-to-play – every item can be earned for free. While the concept of permadeath may sound daunting to many players, Digital Extremes says that players regenerate health and survive longer than in other games.

The Survived By closed alpha begins this year and sign ups are already underway.
