Hellbreed starts closed beta


The game world has opened its gates

Karlsruhe , Germany , July 5th 2011 – Gameforge, international leading provider of online games, today announced that the action RPG Hellbreed, to be released in July 2011, entered a closed beta phase. Gamers can already sign up at www.hellbreed.net
quickly and easily using their email address to receive one of the highly sought-after beta keys for the upcoming hack and slash game.

In Hellbreed, the player can choose between three character classes, namely the Warrior, the Huntress and the Siege Master, each of which provides a unique gaming experience. To reunite the world of Manjuri, which has been smashed into fragments by the gods, the player embarks on a quest on their own or with friends to find the legendary Well of Worlds. Thanks to the newly-developed Phire 2.5D engine and the orchestral soundtrack specially composed for the game, Hellbreed sets new standards in graphics and sound in the field of browser games.

The title is currently in development at the German studio Inflammables and is just now entering an exciting phase. While Hellbreed was just recently announced for other territories by publisher Gameforge, hopes have been high for the start of the beta in UK and the feedback from the players. “When a project into which you’ve put so much love, sweat and tears is seen by the gamers for the first time, the tension is of course always enormous”, said Jan Piotrowski, Product Director at Gameforge. Community Manager Stephan Kieslinger added that “everyone who has seen the game to date has been enthuiastic about it. I’m sure our players will see it in the same way”.
