Indie developer 8 bit Studios have announced that their free to play competitive team based melee combat game Skara – The Blade Remains is available as an open alpha on Steam Early Access. Set in a fantasy world, players must take up their weapons and fight to determine the world’s future. Watch the new open alpha trailer below…
The fantasy world of Skara is a dying one and the developers have placed the gamers at the very heart of it. Kickstarter backers and the game’s early adopters have already become part of the world’s lore and this first weekend of open alpha brings a grand 4 day event called Cataclysm. All players who take part in this event will influence the lore of the game with best players of each faction becoming Heroes, Generals and Chiefs and shape the world’s future. The events of Cataclysm will initiate the ‘Time of the Two Suns’.
“Our Kickstarter backers and Early Adopters are already part of the Lore: now it is time to open this to the rest of the world, starting with the four-days event called ‘Cataclysm’ that will initiate the ‘Time of the Two Suns’”, says Pablo Rodríguez, Creative Director of SKARA.
