Blight: Survival Gameplay Trailer – A Ghastly Medieval Zombie Apocalypse

Haenir Studio, a two-person indie development studio, has released the first gameplay trailer for Blight: Survival, a third-person action-adventure survival game.

Blight: Survival Gameplay Trailer

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it’s a “gritty medieval, action-horror roguelite” that takes place in an alternate 14th century during a war between two states. During this dark time, a new strain of Blight emerged from the ashes of the dead, turning men into monsters. As the main character, you must put an end to the zombie invasion.

Blight: Survival will provide you with a large collection of medieval weapons and equipment, as well as the ability to customize them and guide you through a variety of hidden locations. The game supports a co-op mode for up to four players and allows players to pillage and loot the spoils, which are as easy to lose as they are to find.

The above gameplay trailer shows several battles with players wielding swords and bows. The five-minute trailer also shows off the game’s stealth mechanics and several locations. While the war-torn settings are visually depressing, each slice and animation appears to have been lovingly crafted, making this one of the most impressive indie projects we’ve seen in a long time.

Here are some behind-the-scenes demos from the game’s official Twitter account:

About Blight: Survival

Blight: Survival is a 4-player co-op action-horror roguelite set in the unforgiving no man’s land between two desperate states at a ceaseless war.

Being the only ones willing – and capable – you’ve been tasked to venture in and raze the all-consuming Blight.
