Pearl Abyss announced that its action battle royale game Shadow Arena will enter Early Access on Steam on May 21 (KST). Players will be able to experience the pre-release version of the game ahead of its official launch later this year.
Shadow Arena will continue to feature fierce battles where 40 Heroes can compete against each other to become the sole survivor. The Early Access will introduce a new Hero along with other new content that will apply user feedback from previous Beta tests.
After running a number of Beta tests, Shadow Arena was recognized for its unique action style and strategic gameplay. Moreover, the recent final Beta had greatly improved retention rates, with global users participating in the game more actively than the previous tests. The total number of views of the live-streaming videos on the official Twitch channel also doubled compared to the previous test.
The Early Access of Shadow Arena will be available globally on Steam with support in 14 languages including English, Indonesian, Thai, and Turkish. Watch the Early Access trailer here and visit the official website, Discord, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter for more information.
