Deathgarden™: BLOODHARVEST Redesigned and Rebuilt from the Ground Up, Now Available on Steam

Developer Behaviour Interactive Unveils One Year of Behind-the-Scenes Work on Multiplayer Survival Action Title and the Terminator™ T-800 Endoskeleton Hunter

MONTREAL, QUÉBEC – May 30, 2019 – Independent video game developer Behaviour Interactive (Dead by Daylight) announced today the relaunch of its multiplayer survival action title Deathgarden. Retitled to reflect nearly one year of behind-the-scenes work redesigning and rebuilding the title from the ground up, Deathgarden: BLOODHARVEST finds players in a dark and divided future. Only those deemed worthy are granted entrance to the Enclave, an opulent safe haven, while the rest are damned to almost certain death in the slums. The only gateway between these two worlds is The Bloodharvest, a twisted trial of violence that takes place in arenas known as Deathgardens.

Hunters enter the Bloodharvest willingly, yearning to ruthlessly kill scavengers to rise through the social ranks of the Enclave’s society. For scavengers, entering the Deathgarden is their only chance to escape a life of disease and despair by proving themselves worthy.

These sweeping changes to the game’s setting and lore are matched with a new approach to design, gameplay, and progression as well as newly added features, including:

Focus on Power-up Progression

  • Five brand-new scavengers and three new hunter characters, each with their own unique loadouts, progression, and background story
  • All playstyles are viable as every in-game action now rewards XP and resources
  • Progression designed to encourage and reward trying out different playstyles

Frantic Brutal Gameplay

  • Track and gun down scavengers in first-person as a ruthless hunter. Scavenge for blood and escape in third-person with fast-paced parkour and stealth abilities as a scavenger
  • Five scavengers vying to survive while stalked by an unstoppable hunter
  • A procedural map system, featuring four new Deathgardens that challenges players to adapt to an ever-changing environment

To celebrate this renewed Early Access launch on Steam, Behaviour Interactive is excited to announce a limited time, two-for-one sale for Deathgarden: BLOODHARVEST at $9.99 USD for one week only before the game returns to its new permanent price of $14.99 USD. Players are also encouraged to take advantage of a Steam Free Weekend offer for Deathgarden: BLOODHARVEST starting today, and running through June 2, 2019.

New players and early adopters alike can also look forward to the Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton cosmetic set for the hunter. Starting today, players can purchase this cosmetic set to enter the garden as a legendary and unstoppable T-800 including the complete character model and an exclusive weapon skin. For more details, please visit the official product page on Steam.

Players who purchased the original Deathgarden ahead of today’s Deathgarden: BLOODHARVEST launch will receive two Legacy Cosmetics, a VIP flair, and a transfer of all earned exclusive cosmetics with a bonus currency pack based on their original Deathgarden player level.
