Dungeonborne is an upcoming first-person action role-playing game that offers a unique blend of PvPvE (Player vs. Player vs. Environment) gameplay.
Developed and published by Mithril Interactive, the game is set to deliver an immersive dungeon-crawling experience powered by Unreal Engine 5.
Dungeonborne is designed as a first-person dungeon crawler where players can either venture alone or join forces with up to two companions.
The game is set in a dark fantasy world, primarily within the treacherous corridors of Clouseau Castle and the multi-floored Sinner’s End.
Survival and exploration
Players must survive and navigate through dangerous environments, discovering hoards of artifacts and confronting guardians.
The key is to gather loot and escape the dungeon without falling victim to the lurking dangers.
Character roles and combat
Players can choose from various roles like Fighter, Priest, Rogue, Swordmaster, Pyromancer, Cryomancer, and Death Knight.
The combat system in Dungeonborne features ten unique weapon pairings allowing for a diverse range of fighting techniques.
Buildcrafting and trading
The game includes a feature for crafting and enhancing gear, along with an auction house for trading items.
Players can find equipment with random affixes and corruptions, socket gems to enhance gear, and collect legendary items to craft their ultimate builds.
Dungeonborne also offers a competitive 3v3 Arena where players can engage in battles without the risk of losing their equipment.
This feature provides an additional layer of competitive gameplay separate from the dungeon crawling aspect.
Unique gameplay aspects
Dungeonborne integrates elements from games like Escape From Tarkov and Call of Duty DMZ, combining them with a fantasy setting reminiscent of Dungeons and Dragons or The Elder Scrolls Skyrim.
It offers a blend of high-tension extraction gameplay, where players must decide the right moment to escape the dungeon with their loot.
Development and release
Developed using Unreal Engine 5, Dungeonborne is expected to deliver a next-gen immersive experience with highly tactical combat and character customization.
An open alpha test of the game was scheduled as part of Steam Next Fest, giving players an early look at its gameplay and features.
