Frostkeep Studios, an independent games studio formed by veteran World of Warcraft and League of Legends developers, have unveiled its debut title Rend, an innovative hybrid fantasy survival game for PC.
Featuring PvP and PvE, Rend challenges the traditional survival game blueprint with the introduction of player factions, RPG and sandbox elements, win/loss conditions and massive, culminating battle experiences the like of which have never before been witnessed in this genre.
In Rend, players align with one of three factions before being dropped into a beautiful, but brutal fantasy world where they must strategically team up with other players and friends to battle enemy creatures and rival factions in a relentless and uncompromising struggle for victory.

Players choose how they interact and participate in the world, and are immediately connected to a larger community that creates a place and purpose for every type of player.
Jeremy Wood, co-founder and CEO, Frostkeep Studios said:
We are huge fans of the survival genre and are delivering an in-game experience that the community and our own team wants to play. We value player feedback and want them involved from the very beginning so they can influence the future direction of Rend as it heads into early access this year.

The world of Rend is vast, varied and host to a myriad of mysterious environments – from majestic grassland valleys and an uncompromising cave system to danger-ridden frozen hellscapes, each of which is home to its own specific resources and perils ensuring that players will be able to find the level of challenge that appeals to them.
Rend is slated to launch into early access later in 2018. Interested players can sign-up to take part in the upcoming alpha test.
