Today, New Blood Interactive has announced that their Retro FPS, DUSK, will be released out of Steam's Early Access on December 10. It also launched with an update that adds a 3rd endless arena, a new multiplayer character, and full controller support, which will undoubtedly help in developing the Nintendo Switch release of DUSK.

To keep with the horror theme, DUSK will launch at a $16.66 price point. Anyone who has purchased the title before today will receive the DUSK 50+ page graphic novel for free.

 

For those interested in what DUSK is about besides shooting things as fast as you can, here's a summary from the publisher:

Survive the night against various evildoers after waking up strung up on meat hooks in a northeastern U.S. backwoods farmhouse and utilize a mind-blowing amount of badass weaponry including sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, dual-wielded shotguns and incredibly necessary grenade and rocket launchers.

Battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth.

New Blood Interactive's FPS title will launch with a three-part campaign, an Endless Survival Mode, and online multiplayer component DUSKWorld. Developed by David Syzmanski, developer of The Moon Silver, A Wolf in Autumn, and The Music Machine, the release will also feature a soundtrack composed by Andrew Hulshult, who recently created the soundtracks for Rise of the Triad and Quake Champions.

If you're wanting to pick up DUSK you can do so over at Humble Bundle or on Steam while it is in Early Access.

Quick Take

More titles in the retro FPS genre is nothing to scoff at, especially when they are as good as DUSK. Anyone interested in purchasing it should have already done so, but if you haven't yet you should do so ASAP. DUSK is a ton of fun and effortlessly reinvigorates the genre, especially when you manage to get a multiplayer server going. It's a ton of fun, and I can't wait for the full release.
