I’m still on the mend and unfortunately missed the news on this one when it was announced, but there’s still a couple days to grab Dead Realm on Steam, for free. The team’s full announcement from August 19th follows:
“After 5 years, today we are bringing support for Dead Realm to an end and the official servers will close on August 27th, 2020.
The game will remain open to download for free on Steam until that date so we encourage you to invite friends to grab a copy now so you’ll be able to host your own tension-filled games amongst yourselves.
We thank everyone in the community who gave us feedback, bought a copy, created content and invested hours playing to make it such a memorable success. It was an exhilarating experience to make the kind of multiplayer horror game we wanted to play and then have so many of you discover and enjoy it as well.
This is an incredibly bittersweet moment. We are so grateful for all the fun shared. We leave you with a heartfelt thank you from everyone at 3BLACKDOT.”

If you own the game you’ll still be able to host private server matches going forward. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site soon. Thanks to a confidential reader for submitting the news to the site.
