Travel through a beautiful, fictional rendition of the 16th century of Feudal Japan. Choose between four types of warriors as you learn to master intuitive, directionally-driven swordplay while also choosing unique abilities to ensure victory over your foes. Join your friends in an immersive multiplayer campaign across Japan in pursuit of either preserving the peace and honor of the Emperor or bringing on chaos and death by playing across four different game modes with different objectives and strategies. Whether you prefer the blade wielding Kenshi or Naginata Samurai, the range and precision of the Samurai Archer, or the deceptive Ninja, the options are vast and the battles fierce.

Top Update News

We put out this abridged Combat Trailer to show off our combat system and player abilities. Since the Winter Sale, we've been hard at work preparing our first MEGA PATCH that will introduce our first new character class, the Ite (Archer) and a new Capture the Scroll map set in a fog-ridden forest.

We've teamed up with the great team at BrightLocker.com to grow and expand our community. We've been fairly slow rolling, as it is with many indie early access titles. We are really excited to offer you all great rewards, opportunities to get to know us and for us to get to know you, and really hit 2018 hard on all fronts to improve the game/player base. We're hoping this can help us get to know more of you and help us accomplish our goals for the year (like getting on console!)

The campaign/rewards/interactions will all be available on Friday February 9th! We hope to see you on our page and in our Official Discord.

Other Development News

We're still a few months off from our big patch. We have a lot of animation, environment art and playtesting to do to get the Ite and the new map where it needs to be for the most enjoyment.

We're working on a variety of other improvements ranging from AI, menus, better messaging for objectives and what you should be doing. Take a look at a few new shots of content we're working on:

Not sure. When we did title research last year when we were re-branding the game nothing came up anywhere with the exactly title or name. We had about 5 final candidates and the team voted on this one.

Definitely still alive. We'll likely be looking at a late 2016 for closed alpha/beta. Looking into getting some funding to speed things up. :D Thank you.

We will not rest until it is done.

We have discussed it a little bit. It doesn't seem hard in UE4 to go to Linux or Mac, but it's something that needs more serious discussion.
