The game is available now on Steam and on the Epic Games Store at a price of $14.44, €14.44 and £11.89, and includes the game's art book (called “the Notebook”) as well as its atmospheric soundtrack.
In close cooperation with NVIDIA for support in technical regards, and by the help of Pumpkin Jack's developer Nicolas Meyssonnier in terms of effects and lighting, The Fabled Woods features striking visuals and an intriguing story with many twists and turns. The use of DLSS provides for a significant performance boost enabled by NVIDIA’s recently-released Unreal Engine 4 DLSS plugin. In addition, the game features RTX Global Illumination as well as ray-traced foliage, shadows and reflections.
“Our goal was to launch the first game that can handle ray-tracing foliage with over 1 million instances and good performance." explains the developer Joe Bauer. "All the trees cast ray-traced shadows and there are ray-traced reflections in all the water you can find in the woods.”

Headup and developer Silent Dreams proudly announce the full release of Dead Age 2 for Steam and GOG on March 12, 2021.
Back in 2016, Dead Age brought something new to the horror genre: it combined turn-based combat with survival management, and a non-linear narrative with rogue-like elements in a sinister horror setting. The game quickly gained huge active fans on Steam who wished to see more of the game.
Four years later, in July 2020, its sequel, Dead Age 2, was launched into Early Access with many new features, including a complex combat system requiring a more strategic approach. Thrilling survival and exploration possibilities have expanded with a larger map and over 80 locations, offering an open world feel while remaining compact. A new base, this time in 3D, will still be the center of events.
Multiple factions exist within the game to fight or trade with, and to receive requests for quests. Successful completions will improve standing with their faction leaders. Dead Age 2 plays like an RPG, with numerous quests and different outcomes based on each decision.
Thanks to the many active players with their helpful feedback (thank you, community!), the game has improved over the past nine months with general polishing and bug fixes, and some exciting new features revealed today:
Dead Age 2 will be fully released on Steam and GOG for PC, Mac and Linux on March 12, 2021 for $17.99, €17.99 and £14.99 with a discount at launch.
