Enshrouded Release Date, and What You Need to Know

Here is everything you need to know about the Enshrouded Release Date and what else you need to know about the upcoming survival game by the Portal Knights developer.


Enshrouded, the new Survival Game by the brilliant minds behind Portal Knights and Sacred 3 is soon launching into Early Access. Since its reveal, it has been hailed as the next big thing in the open-world survival genre and aims to stand tall with titans such as Valheim and V Rising.

We'll have everything in and around its release and the latest info on the title ahead of its launch. And we'll have even more once we start into Early Access.

Enshrouded Release Date

Enshrouded launches into Early Access on January 24, 2024, on PC. There is no official time yet but keep an eye on Keen Games' social media or official Discord server for more information. There's no timeline yet for the Early Access, but we'll keep you posted.

Enshrouded Platforms

Enshrouded is currently planned to be released on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. As previously mentioned, the Early Access period will kick off with the PC version with console releases planned for later. Whether they're made available during the Early Access or not is still up in the air.

Enshrouded Game Pass

Enshrouded will not be released on Game Pass in the foreseeable future. As always that is still subject to change. Game Pass has featured titles in early access before.

Enshrouded Gameplay

Enshrouded aims to be a survival, crafting, and Action RPG in a gigantic voxel-open world. This means almost every single thing you see can be manipulated in some way shape or form from felling trees to building whatever your heart desires.

From what we've seen so far it also features an impressive building system that allows you to build towns and cities alone or with friends. The game features co-op with up to 16 players at the same time. This means you can create a fully functional warband that tackles the various challenges of the land and work together and or independently from each other to achieve your goals.

The game also features a fully-fledged third-person action combat system with dodges, parries, and stealth attacks across various playstyles. You can be a knight in shining armor or a dashing rogue picking off enemies from afar.

Great about it is a skill and gear system that allows you to create whatever character you desire. There are no set classes and the right equipment that can either be found or crafted can further augment your abilities. Freedom of choice seems to be at the heart of Enshrouded's gameplay loop.

The fallen realm of Embervale features all kinds of biomes from mythical forests beset by ancient creatures to abandoned castles and villages ripe for the picking. It's up to you and your trusty band of companions to explore these lands, slay its beasts, and conquer its various challenges to figure out the secret behind the Shroud and lift its curse.
