    Multiplayer Horror FPS Level Zero: Extraction Invites Players to Open Beta Starting Today, Showcases Intense Combat During PC Gaming Show

    – Experience a unique mix of survival horror and extraction shooters during Steam Next Fest through June 17 –

    SEATTLE June 09, 2024 – Publisher tinyBuild and developer DogHowl Games announced today at the PC Gaming Show that Level Zero: Extraction, the upcoming multiplayer extraction horror game, will host an open beta test on Steam beginning today and continuing through Steam Next Fest. The announcement came with a brand-new gameplay trailer, highlighting the high-stakes asymmetric PvPvPvE action and tactical FPS combat.


    Following a successful closed beta earlier this year, the open beta features a number of new features and updates based on player feedback.  The beta will introduce new locations to explore, realistic military-grade weapons, and AI enemies for PvE gameplay, in addition to quality-of-life improvements to balance, combat mechanics, progression, server stability, and more.

    Developed in Unreal Engine 5 by small but ambitious Ukraine-based studio DogHowl Games, Level Zero: Extraction is a new, original take on multiplayer survival horror. Players will embark on dangerous scavenging expeditions where multiple mercenary teams compete for valuable loot. Meanwhile, another two players will take on the role of deadly alien monsters that can only be killed with light, hunting the humans from the shadows.

    Key Pillars:

    • Asymmetric multiplayer extraction horror is a brand-new take on the genre to create a totally unique experience
    • Play as human mercenaries fighting over valuable loot – or as deadly alien monsters in high-stakes battles
    • Intense first-person combat with immersive gunplay and melee mechanics
    • A vast arsenal of weapons and gadgets to help humans survive
    • Hunt humans with out-of-this-world alien abilities, including acid spit, live traps, vent crawling, EMP screams, heartbeat scans, and more
    • Deep progression system with a variety of new perks, items, and weapon attachments to unlock
    • Aliens can only be killed with light – this unique gameplay mechanic allows humans to strategically use light sources across the map to stave off monsters

    Level Zero: Extraction launches into Steam Early Access in 2024, but players can dive into the action and get an early look at the latest features from now until June 17th at 7pm CEST. Wishlist the game on Steam and follow along on X to stay up to date with all the latest announcements.
