Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive has announced first-person building and raiding game Meet Your Maker for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam). It will launch in 2023. Sign-ups for the PC closed playtest here.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Meet Your Maker is a post-apocalyptic first-person building-and-raiding game where every level is designed by players. Switch between roles as you mastermind devious maze-like Outposts filled with traps and guards, then gear up for methodical fast-paced combat raiding other players’ creations.
The World is Dying…
You are the Custodian of the Chimera, a living experiment created as a last resort to save life on Earth. Enter a tactical battle for the planet’s most coveted resource and the key to your Chimera’s evolution: pure Genetic Material. Construct and fortify brutal Outposts to extract and guard your Genmat. Infiltrate and outsmart other players’ Outposts to gather more. Adapt, upgrade, and evolve… or die trying.
Create to Destroy
Build a maze of devious deathtraps designed to lure, outwit, and kill trespassing players. Combine a huge array of customizable blocks, traps, and guards. Pre-record custom patrol paths for your guards with the innovative AI recording system. Share your Outposts and watch other players take them on. Reap rewards from those who die, learn how to strengthen your creation from those who live, and never lose progress or resources by being raided.
Outwit to Survive
Test your grit, wit, and reflexes by tactically raiding other players’ Outposts. Get in, grab the Genmat, and try to make it out alive. Gain an edge by choosing the right loadout (melee, ranged, defensive), perks, and consumables to match your challenge or playstyle. Take another step forward with every attempt. Reveal a new strategy with every death. Master every Outpost that stands in your way.
Cooperate and Connect
Combine your creativity and build with a friend or join forces to raid Outposts as a team of two. Watch raiders challenge your Outposts via the replay system and never miss a kill. Grow your Outpost’s reputation with community feedback as Raiders award accolades that best describe your creation. Easily find your friends and favorite Builders with the Social Raid menu and play their Outposts any time.
- Asynchronous Gameplay – Build when you want, how you want. Even once live, no Outpost is complete until you say it is. Watch its performance, iterate to make it even deadlier, and raid for more resources as often as you like along the way.
- Outpost Building – Immerse yourself in block-based, first-person level design. Claim plots of land and use a variety of blocks, traps, and guards to extract and protect Genmat while creating a deadly challenge for other players to face.
- Outpost Raiding – Jump into a Raider suit, choose your loadout, and switch to intense first-person action as you take on player-built Outposts. Destroy traps and guards for additional building resources and upgrades while raiding for Genmat.
- Customization – A deep, ever-expanding toolbox of traps, guards, mods, and augments deliver a nearly endless combination of creative and strategic options as you fortify underground or build into the sky. Add cosmetics to bring atmosphere, personality, and even distractions to your creation.
- Progression and Upgrades – Provide the Chimera and your five specialized Advisors with Genmat to unlock and upgrade your arsenal of traps, guards, weapons, suits, and more. Prestige your Outposts to prolong their lifespan and gain even greater rewards.
- Accolades and Social Raids – Lethal labyrinth? Bullet inferno? Creative masterpiece? Don’t just build an Outpost. Design an experience. Raiders select accolades to describe your creation, rewarding ingenuity, originality, and helping grow its reputation. The Social Raid menu easily connects you to your friends’ or favorite Builders’ Outposts to play at any time.
