Deathgarden: Bloodharvest is the Attempted Relaunch of Behaviour’s 2018 Asymmetrical Shooter
Deathgarden: Bloodharvest for PC also features the T-800 Endoskeleton from Terminator as a DLC skin.
Last year, Behaviour Interactive released Deathgarden via Steam Early Access. It is an asymmetrical 1v5 multiplayer survival shooter where the Hunter, playing in first person, sets traps and tries to kill the four Scavengers, playing in first person, as they gather blood and attempt to survive. While the game had a strong opening month following its August 2018, its playerbase has mostly tapered off with many Steam reviews complaining that the game is dead. In an attempt to revamp the game, Behaviour Interactive is relaunching it as Deathgarden: Bloodharvest, dropping the price, and adding the T-800 Endoskeleton from Terminator as a Hunter Skin.
If you were to buy Deathgarden before today, it would’ve cost you $29.99. With Deathgarden: Bloodharvest, the normal price has actually dropped to $14.99; that being said, those interested in the game can partake in the Free Weekend currently running on Steam and pick the game up at a discounted price of $9.99. While this significant price drop may anger early adopters, Behaviour Interactive is trying to make up for it by giving those players two Legendary cosmetics and a VIP flair. Returning players will also be able to bring “all earned exclusive cosmetics with a bonus currency pack based on their original Deathgarden player level.”
As for new content and changes, Deathgarden: Bloodharvest spices things up with a redone progression system. There are now three new hunters and five new scavengers, all of which have special loadouts, progression systems, and unique stories. XP is now rewarded for all in-game actions now to encourage the varied playstyles of Deathgarden: Bloodharvest’s characters. There are also four new Deathgardens preset that will be procedurally generated before each match, keeping the game fresh.
While all of these changes do seem like they will significantly improve the game, Behaviour Interactive has likely learned from Dead by Daylight that guest characters can significantly boost a game’s notoriety, hence the T-800 Endoskeleton’s inclusion. Players will receive Headgear, Upper Body, Weapon Skin, and Lower Body gear as well as a weapon skin to match the character if they purchase this DLC, making Deathgarden: Bloodharvest the closest thing to a cool Terminator game we have right now.
