Ravenfield is a futuristic first-person shooter video game developed by Swedish developer Johan Hassel. It was later released for both Windows and Linux as an alpha pre-launch title for Windows, macOS and Linux in May 2021. The game is the complete version of the cancelled VR title called Raven Tactics: Train in Time, which was in development at the time for PlayStation 2. Hassel later revealed that there are around seven to eight features that are coming to the new game.
Apart from that, Hassel also announced that four additional maps are coming to the game, namely Twilight Wastes, Canyon Complex, Argyn Forests, and Canyon Ridge. He also teased the in-game leaderboards and two new weapons - the Raven Sword and the Raven Gun. He further explained that the early access version of the game will be supported with paid upgrades later on. The early access version of the game will be free for the first three months, after which it will charge players for its usage.
According to Hassel, the major intention behind the development of the Ravenfield beta was to test the first-person view with the help of a "Ragdoll Physics" system, which has been added to the game since the first-person view was introduced. This system uses body movements to make the player react to any situation. Hassel explained that the aim of the game is to be more involved than other RTS games in the future. Players will be able to have a hands-on combat experience with a wide range of weapons, including the previously disclosed heavy weapons like the Raven Sword.
