    Authentic Realism in Gameplay and Multiple Modes


    Meticulously researched and painstakingly recreated, over 1000 historically accurate units are available to pick from, thus creating armies that each have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Take on the role of army commander for the U.S., West Germany, United Kingdom, France, the Soviet Union or East Germany in various modes from single-player campaigns, online competitive or online cooperative that can range from 1v1 to to 10v10 battles.

    What Comes with V1.0


    Version 1.0 launches with a mass of changes but most notably a fully fleshed-out single-player campaign (4 unique army general campaigns), enemy AI upgrades and various overhauls to some of the most popular maps.

    Strong Numbers Already Amassed


    Since launching into Early Access in January 2022, Warno has amassed a strong player base with 250 000+ copies already sold and is currently rated 82% positive on Steam from 7400+ reviews. Eugene Systems will also be supporting the game with long-term post-launch support, something they have proven themselves in doing with the level of support given to their previous titles, Steel Division 2 and Wargame: Red Dragon which still today garner regular daily player numbers in the 1000's.

    Will You Survive in a Medieval Survival Game?

    MONTREAL – April 30, 2024 – Haenir Studio and Behaviour Interactive are excited to announce their official partnership to bring Blight: Survival™ to life. First revealed in 2022, the much buzzed-about medieval action-horror co-op survival game pits up to four players against monsters and men in a visceral fight to destroy the source of the Blight, a deadly affliction that plagues the land. 

    “Teaming up with Behaviour Interactive signals the next major phase of development for Blight: Survival,” said Haenir Studio Co-Founder, Mads Christensen. “With Blight: Survival, we set out to deliver an ambitious and unique experience for players. Being able to utilize Behaviour’s resources, expertise, and horror pedigree will be instrumental in bringing our vision to life. We’re thrilled to kick off this journey together.”

    Blight: Survival takes place in the no man’s land between two desperate kingdoms locked in a ceaseless war. Within this realm of death and decay, a new strain of Blight has erupted from the remains of the fallen. Fed and strengthened by the blood that’s been spilled, it rapidly spreads – turning man into monster. 

    “As a game we were already looking forward to playing ourselves, we couldn’t be happier about this collaboration,” shared Stephen Mulrooney, Executive Vice President at Behaviour Interactive. “Working with talented studios like Haenir Studio in this type of partnership will be a focus for us as we look to publish more and more external games in the coming years. This is the start of something new and exciting for Behaviour, and we’ll be keeping our eyes open for interesting opportunities.”

    While Blight: Survival does not currently have a release date, Haenir Studio and Behaviour Interactive are eager to share more details about the game and its ongoing development in the future.

    In the meantime, players interested in learning more or being first in line for all the latest Blight: Survival news can join the official Discord and wishlist the game on Steam.
