We’ve seen first-person shooters that have taken place in the past before – like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor harkening back to the era of World War II. But are you ready to go further back in time Blackpowder Games has announced a new PC first-person shooter called Betrayer, one that takes place in the Colonial era. The game utilizes Unreal Engine 3 technology and uses weapons from that era, including crossbows, muskets and axes. Despite the change in tempo from current era weaponry, Betrayer means serious business, as Blackpowder consists of former staffers from Monolith Productions, the creators of the F.E.A.R. franchise.

Betrayer will be available through Steam Early Access starting August 14, for $14.99.
