Prague, Czech Republic — August 17, 2022 — Fulqrum Publishing and T19 Games are proud to announce that the successful old-school first-person shooter Dread Templar entered the last stages of development after unleashing its last Content Update before the game’s full release, which is scheduled for later this year. The update is significant in its own right however, enriching the players’ experience with a completely new and different game mode - the Guardian Mode.  

Guardian Mode is a wave-based, endless game mode, in which the player protects a blue crystal in the center of an arena for as long as they can. Simple rules – if the mystical crystal is destroyed or the player dies, the game ends. Killing enemies and surviving additional waves provides players with currency they can use to purchase power-ups, supplies and restore health to themselves or the crystal. 

Featuring a very positive 94% user reviews score on Steam, Dread Templar was voted by players among the Top 10 indie games of 2021 via IndieDB awards. It is well on the way for a successful full release later this year! A detailed Early Access Roadmap is available to all players curious about the content and features the full release will bring.

Dread Templar is now available in Early Access on PC via Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, and other digital stores for $14.99 USD / €14.99 EUR with a full release planned for Fall 2022. To download all available assets for Dread Templar, visit its Press Kit. Also don’t forget to visit the game’s page on Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store and wishlist it now. For more information, visit the official Fulqrum Publishing website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter and/or Steam.
