Infected Shelter Trailer Declares Early Access Launch Coming Soon
Dark Blue Games unveiled Infected Shelter to the world at last year’s EGX. We’re now six months removed from the “randomly generated rogue-lite post-apocalyptic action RPG shooter/dungeon brawler”, and the team is ready to show us where things stand with the project via the new Infected Shelter trailer.
The developers describe their game as the lovechild of Dead Cell and Castle Crashers – but with added executions. And it’s playable in both single player and local co-op for up to four people, so you can gleefully dismember the dead with a group of friends.
What you see in the new Infected Shelter trailer is unique, as the developers tease that “Every run is different because of the randomly generated content.” As you progress, you’ll loot your maimed enemies and acquire blueprints to boost your stats.
Dark Blue Games says there are over 150 of these blueprints in the game. These are described as “the key to Infected Shelter’s replayability.” Using them, you’ll unlock more potent weapons, new clothes, upgrade skills, earn relics and enhance your character. The studio touts 50 plus “brutal, ultra-violent executions”, as well as 50 plus character traits to use across the game’s four playable characters.
The Infected Shelter trailer is more interested in the hardcore violence than the game’s story beats, but there is a plot to experience. Dark Blue Games states “You play as a member of a surviving group in a post-apocalyptic world. On one fateful morning, you awake to find the shelter is raided and your people are kidnapped for reasons unknown. Leaving your shelter you emerge into the harsh infected land and start looking for the kidnappers and the truth behind the events. Your path lead you through randomly generated post-apocalyptic areas controlled by different enemy factions with brutal leaders and shelters occupied by infected creatures.”
Publishing the game as well, Dark Blue Games is releasing Infected Shelter for PC, Mac, and Linux at first. A Steam Early Access launch is said to be “coming soon”. But the team also notes that they intend to bring the game to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One “later”.
