Twain Harte, CA – March 4, 2013 – Indie developer 2Dawn Games and Reverb Publishing opened the doors for enthusiastic modders today by creating a free, downloadable RDK (Ravaged Development Kit) for Ravaged to develop their own maps, levels, and more. The new RDK opens up the Ravaged engine by providing avid modders with the tools to import static meshes, skeletal meshes, textures, animations, make maps, assets, and general game content for Ravaged.
The RDK is a standalone development kit for the base game Ravaged and for the expansion Ravaged Zombie Apocalypse that does not require prior ownership of the Unreal Engine. It is available now and can be downloaded HERE: www.mediafire.com/folder/6d99e6c3338v4/v1p0

“Having come from the modding community ourselves, we feel passionate about giving the same opportunity to future Ravaged developers,” said Ken Payne, Lead Engineer at 2Dawn Games. “These fundamental tools will provide a platform for our community to build, share, and play in maps that we could never have imagined.”
Built by 2Dawn Games, the same great developers that created the mod Battlefield: Desert Combat and full-fledged games HomeFront and Frontlines, the new RDK is open and free. The tools remain the same, but there are some game mode actors and components specific to Ravaged. For instance, there is one working example available for each game mode. And users will need to submit/relinquish all maps/mods to 2Dawn Games for potential inclusion into Ravaged. Because 2Dawn Games is eager to support and develop a growing Steam/Ravaged modding community, it has created these forums to discuss all future related modding: https://www.2dawn.com/forums/forumdisplay.php/54-Ravaged-Dev-Kit
A fast-paced, open world, vehicular and weapon-based first-person shooter like none other, Ravaged (available on Steam for PC at $14.99) is set in a post-apocalypse world ripped apart by natural disasters. Filled with different map sizes, team-based modes, and a variety of vehicles from ATVs, buggies, tanks, and moving fortresses, Ravaged can be played using classic modes or the recently created Zombie Apocalypse modes. Chronicling the struggle between the “Resistance” and the “Scavengers” as they fight for vanishing resources and territory, Ravaged asks players to join the fight for survival.
Ravaged Zombie Apocalypse is available now on Steam for $14.99; it is rated M for mature due to the violent subject matter, and is not intended for younger audiences. For more information on Ravaged, please visit: www.2dawn.com/. Be sure to follow 2 Dawn Games on Twitter and Facebook.
