Dread Templar is a first-person shooter (FPS) combining old-school gameplay with modern game mechanics. Developed by one-man studio T19 Games, this production from 1C Entertainment's catalog has been released in early access.

Early access

For its release in early access in mid-2021, Dread Templar offered only part of the content planned by the developer. The full version of the game will feature 5 chapters and many more weapons, enemies and secrets. In addition, development plans included translating the game into other languages and polishing the gameplay.


As in many FPSs from the 90s, the story is not the main attraction of Dread Templar and has a rather residual character. We play as the titular Templar who travels through the hellish land in search of vengeance.

Game mechanics

The developer describes Dread Templar as a combination of old and modern shooters, so a title in the style of newer installments of the Doom series. So we have the fast-paced action and hordes of enemies to kill - there's no time for sneaking or using cover. We kill the adversaries using a varied arsenal, which includes katanas, shotguns and pistols.

Equipment can be modified with gold and silver cards, but in search of these you need to look around the locations more carefully. There are plenty of secrets and simple puzzles to solve, which will reward us with cards and gems giving us additional weapon slots for upgrades.

All this makes that on the one hand we can adjust the gameplay to our preferences, on the other - it encourages exploration and moving your head in the fight. They didn't forget about bullet time, allowing us to effectively eliminate slowed down enemies.

Technical aspects

Dread Templar is inspired by the 90s not only in terms of gameplay. The game uses angular, pixelated 3D graphics, although the developer did not spare on special effects. The whole thing is kept in a dirty, spooky style, bringing to mind the first Doom, Quake or survival horror movies. The game is accompanied by heavy-metal music that perfectly fits the murderous battles with the hordes from hell.
