Curse of the Dead Gods succeeded throughout its Early Access period on Steam, maintaining around 90% positive reviews on Steam thanks to many tweaks and additions based on community suggestions. Alongside the vast array of content already available, the release will launch with a brand-new update featuring the true ending of your journey leading to the God of Death itself. This is also the first time the game arrives on consoles, releasing simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and, in a new announcement, on Nintendo Switch.


The full release of Curse of the Dead Gods wouldn’t have been possible without all of the incredible work from the entire team and our excellent community of Early Access players,” announced Sylvain Passot, Studio Director at Passtech Games. “The amazing community that has grown around the game has really pushed it to the right direction. We can’t wait to welcome all the players to the Temple and we’re looking further ahead to 2021 for new exciting content.” 


Curse of the Dead Gods is available now in Steam Early Access and will arrive on February 23rd for full release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. For more information, visit the official website.

About Curse of the Dead Gods

You seek untold riches, eternal life, divine powers - it leads to this accursed temple, a seemingly-infinite labyrinth of bottomless pits, deadly traps, and monsters.

Your greed will lead you to death, but that is not an escape. Rise to fight again. Delve deeper again. Defy the malignant deities that linger in this place. Battle through hordes of enemies in dark, cavernous passages filled with traps and secrets of all sorts - fire-spewing statues, explosives, hidden spikes, and worse.

Collect mystical Relics and an arsenal of weapons to make yourself unstoppable. Corruption builds in you with every step - encourage or ignore it, but each powerful curse can be a double-edged sword.

  • A skill-based roguelike exploring a cruel, dark temple made of endless rooms and corridors

  • Swords, spears, bows, guns - wield these and many more

  • Light and fire will be your best allies to overcome the threats that lie in the shadows

  • Unique curses influence each attempt, putting a twist on every action

  • Dozens of enemies, with powerful champions and deadly bosses to face off against
