Way back in March this year, 3D Realms revealed a promising new FPS called Wrath: Aeon of Ruin – a shooter developed by KillPixel and a set of “Quake scene veterans,” built on the game engine from id Software’s original Quake. It was then due for a release in Summer, but that came and went and we didn’t hear much from the project, other than a short showing off at Gamescom.

Today, in a surprise move, 3D Realms has shock-launched Wrath: Aeon of Ruin in Steam Early Access. This version consists of the hub world, two levels, five weapons, eight enemies, and four artifacts to unearth.

The team plan to release new levels at unspecified periodic intervals, leading up to the full release – where the game will also get a multiplayer component. The final game was originally stated to offer three hub worlds and 15 interconnected levels – so the launch version of the Early Access release offers around 15% of the final game, although of course Wrath may get expanded before the full release.
