Play Rend, the months-long, massive PvP survival game from ex-WoW devs at the PC Gamer Weekender

A warrior from Rend runs away from an explosion.

The former World of Warcraft devs who formed Frostkeep Studios are bringing their new multiplayer survival title, Rend, to the PC Gamer Weekender. It’s a 60-player competitive survival title where three factions of 20 players try to outlast their opponents, in matches that can last... well, months. You'd better not wait that long to make sure you can play it early, though; grab your Weekender tickets now and use discount code chr1stm4s for 20 percent off up to midnight on January 5. 

PC Gamer had a look at Rend earlier in 2017 – check out the preview here – in which the game was described as “a survival game that blends the RPG progression of World of Warcraft and the competitive nature of League of Legends with a gooey survival-game filling as its heart”.

Along with Rend’s massive survival action, you’ll be able to see many more speakers, games and booths all at the PC Gamer Weekender, which is being held February 17-18 at the Olympia, London, in the UK. For more details see the site, and follow the event on Twitter for up-to-the-minute news. Tickets are available now from £12.99.
