Game description

A catastrophic plague has left a trail of destruction across 14th century Europe. Survivors confront sickness and scarce resources in a land rife with banditry. Attempt to find a cure, acquire power, learn skills and adapt to survive.

Those lucky enough to survive have come to call it ‘The Black Death’.


This is an Early Access Game

This means the game is still in active development, and can change drastically throughout development. The Early Access program will not only allow the player to enjoy the fantastic gameplay experience, but will also allow the player to make a real difference in how the game progresses.

The team will continue to create new features throughout the process. Those who choose to purchase the game should expect missing content, bugs, incomplete content and, potentially, game breaking problems.




Take on the role of a medieval man of science, a plague doctor, hell-bent on finding a cure to the horrific plague spreading across the land. Study the effects of the infection through experiments and autopsies on man and beast alike, with the ongoing risk of your own infection - and in danger of being lynched by townsfolk who believe science to be heresy!


Take advantage of different realistic medieval professions: Crafting fine armors to protect yourself from deadly raiders as a Blacksmith, taming animals and farming the land as a Peasant, tricking players with counterfeit goods as a Bandit, and much, much more.


Embark on a journey through a dark and gritty open-world depiction of a plague-infested Medieval Europe. Witness the plague spread in real-time through the population including your friends and enemies whilst exploring bustling towns, striking castles and plague-infested mines in your search for the cure to this deadly infection. Interact with hundreds of NPC’s; trade with merchants and hunters, clash with crusaders and bandits and be wary of infected beggars. 

You don't have to face these horrors alone - team up with other players and work together to prosper or become a menace to the world and take everything you can! But be careful who you trust...

Try to rebuild society by building a homestead by yourself, or with friends. Develop your building skills and turn a rickety shack into a powerful estate, complete with an ultimate medieval research lab to help you perform your experiments and find a cure.

Can become a promising game and 4-pack lowers price for friends


The Black Death is a multiplayer survival game set in Europe during the time of the Black Death. You will choose from different classes (lineage) during character creation (militia, peasant, merchant, blacksmith, etc) which all have unique abilities, then name them and choose a gender. Your character is then spawned into the server you chose and you can go around finding items, fighting NPCs and players, gathering supplies, improving skills, talking to NPCs, etc. Early on you might gather some sticks and craft them into a weapon to act as an early club for defense, crafting plants into cotton bandages, and pick berries for food. The skills that come with each type of character can increase resistance to the plague or hunger, improve your crafting abilities, give you more health, better tools, etc. The early access version has just launched at this time and a few patch and stability updates have already been released, the title is still having features added and the developers expect to launch fully in about a year going off of their early access description. The game does not feel completely ready to be played at this time, unless you have a lot of faith in the developer and want to support them as a lot of basic features are being fixed, tweaked, and added. At launch the game would randomly crash or you would be disconnected from servers, there are a lot of graphical glitches, characters and upgrades might not be saved or can be removed with patches, certain aspects of the game do not work properly and are being tweaked. Right now you aren't playing a mostly functional early access title like something like Killing Floor 2, Darkest Dungeons, Battle Brothers, etc, here you will be paying to act as more of a alpha tester where current updates are more about fixing stability and getting the game to function properly. When the game first launched it could just crash, the servers wouldn't work, it would randomly delete your characters, most of the larger issues like that seem to have been taken care of. The game looks like it can be promising but you should wait for more updates if you want a more feature complete title. If you have three friends to split the price of the 4-pack with you can get one copy of the game free, with updates still changing things about the servers and character data it might not be the most ideal game to play with your friends right now but this would be the way to go if you all have an interest in the game and seeing how it evolves.
