Montreal, April 30, 2024 — Haenir Studio and Behaviour Interactive are thrilled to announce their official partnership for the development of Blight: Survival. Originally revealed in 2022 and generating a lot of excitement, the co-op survival action horror game set in a medieval universe pits up to four players against monsters and men in a visceral fight to destroy the source of the plague, a deadly affliction ravaging the land.

“The partnership with Behaviour Interactive marks the next major phase in the development of Blight: Survival,” said Mads Christensen, co-founder of Haenir Studio. ” “With Blight: Survival, we set out to offer players a unique and ambitious experience. The opportunity to leverage Behaviour’s horror resources, know-how and expertise will be crucial to bringing our vision to life. We are absolutely thrilled to embark on this journey together. »

Blight: Survival is set in an uninhabited land between two desperate kingdoms caught in a relentless war. Within this expanse of death and decline, a new variant of the scourge has sprung from the remains of those who have fallen in battle. Nourished and fortified by spilled blood, it spreads rapidly and turns men into monsters.

“This is a game we’ve been looking forward to playing, so we couldn’t be happier with this collaboration,” said Stephen Mulrooney, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Behaviour Interactive. “Working with talented studios like Haenir Studio in this type of partnership is going to be a priority for us as we look forward to publishing more and more external games in the coming years. It’s the beginning of something new and exciting for Behaviour. »

While Blight: Survival doesn’t have a release date yet, Haenir Studio and Behaviour Interactive are looking forward to revealing more details about the game and its ongoing development soon.
