Today Wandering Wizards and Snail Games have announced that Matrioshka Games’ Expedition Agartha has finally launched into early access on Steam.
Check out the launch trailer below:
Expedition Agartha is a medieval take on the Escape from Tarkov game formula where you drop into a world, seek out loot, and try to extract with your life intact.
If you haven’t already, you can check out breakdown and preview of the game right here that was written up after a behind-closed-doors preview of the game last week.
Or if you’re already interested in Expedition Agartha, you can pick it up on Steam right now here.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Legends speak of the Kingdom of Agartha, hidden to the world since time immemorial. It is said that Agartha is the birthplace of all gods and men. Empires have risen and fallen since the ages of Atlantis and Lemuria, and in all this time, the true nature of this fabled land has yet to reveal itself. The scrolls of the old scholars fade with time and history becomes but a myth. Yet time and time again, adventurers lured by the tales of immortality and paradise will risk everything to brave the dangers of the unknown. Many seek Gold, Some search for God, and others fight for Glory.
Whatever the reason, most will perish. Will you survive the Expedition?
Expedition Agartha is a first person medieval PvPvE experience. Explorers and Mercenaries from around the world find themselves on a mysterious island in the Lost Continent of Mu. In the depths of the earth, the Secrets of Agartha wait to be discovered.
Players will launch expeditions solo or with up to two other friends, and fight their way across the island. The game features a hardcore full loot PvP experience. Dangerous NPCs roam the regions, but even more lethal players stalk the land in search of treasure and blood… Enter raids, loot for resources, defeat enemies, complete quests, and extract to safety. Expedition Agartha will be Early Access at launch.
- Explore a lost island filled with danger and loot. Encounter bandits and beasts as you make your way through unfamiliar territory. Discover ancient ruins and ponder the mysteries of humanity’s true past.
- Fight in visceral combat involving light attacks, heavy attacks, blocks, and dodges. This means every fight is a skill-based battle of life or death.
- Co-op with parties of 3 players and launch an expedition. Ruthlessly hunt down other players, or build alliances to make it out alive together.
- Loot and equip a variety of medieval weapons and gear from various warrior cultures to suit your playstyle and aesthetic.
- Competitive, match-based experience where dying could mean losing everything. A successful expedition means high rewards, but death will cost you all your gear.
- Play as a Freebooter(low-risk, low-rewards) and enter the expedition with free low tier equipment without any character progression, or play as a Mercenary (high-risk, high-reward) and bring your own hard-earned gear with quest and skill progression.
Pick up the game today and try to find me on the Lost Islands, I will no doubt be hiding like a coward waiting for you to be overwhelmed by zombies so I can take your shoes.
