Traverse a beautifully dangerous world inspired by Greek legend with an all-new trailer premiered at IGN Live

NASHVILLE, Tenn.June 8, 2024 – Independent video game studio Traega Entertainment was thrilled to announce during IGN Live today that Dawn of Defiance, the open-world, survival-crafting game inspired by ancient Greek mythology, launches into early access Aug. 15, 2024, on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The news coincided with an all-new trailer highlighting the game’s incredibly customizable base building systems, as well as the reveal of a threatening new late-game enemy type: the Gorgons!

You are the Defier, subjected to a mythic plot across the ruined isles. Ascend from weak soldier to god-like anti-hero as you survive the Crossroads, build impressive Greek structures, and prove yourself a champion of defiance. Gather resources, craft and upgrade your gear, and face down the trials of the Gods with up to three friends.

Key Features

  • Survive the Isles: As discontent brews in the Underworld, you have been brought to a lost shore to be tested. To discover your elusive purpose, you must first start from nothing and arm yourself against the dangers of the isles.
  • Explore the Ruins: Just beyond the domain of the Gods, you’ll traverse coastal cliffs, dark woods, and blistering sands with heightened movement abilities, unlocking treasure and power amidst mythic landmarks.
  • Empower Yourself: Your victories across the isles will advance your strength through acquired recipes and upgrades. Build and adorn impressive Greek structures that rival the halls of Olympus, and protect yourself with customizable, crafted gear.
  • Defy the Gods: Cross the threshold into the Forgotten Crossroads and complete the 12 trials to sever the Gods’ lingering ties of power and steal their knowledge.
  • Band Together: Undertake this deadly odyssey on your own, or recruit up to three friends to aid your journey at any time in online cooperative multiplayer.
