Garena to publish Undawn, a survival shooter set in an open world, across Southeast Asia and the region

Garena has announced that the company will publish Undawn, an immersive open-world survival shooter, for gamers in the region. Unveiled at Garena World 2021, the largest gaming and esports event in Southeast Asia, Undawn gave viewers at the online event a preview of its visceral combat; wide, open world; and AAA experience on mobile and PC.


Undawn will thrust players into a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies. It will combine both Player vs Player (PvP) and Player vs Environment (PvE) gameplay, and will have players fend off the dual threats of zombies and other humans as they fight to survive in this hellscape. Built using Unreal Engine 4, Undawn will offer a huge open world that pushes the boundaries for both graphics and multiplayer gameplay.

Developed by Tencent Games' LightSpeed and Quantum Studios, Garena will publish Undawn in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. It is slated to launch on iOS, Android, and PC later this year.


Undawn will offer gamers the opportunity to play a broad range of styles.
  1. Explore freely in a wide and varied open world, managing your vitals and physical condition as you experience dynamic weather and day-night cycles.
  2. Fight for survival – alone or in teams – using a diverse selection of weapons and combat styles.
  3. Scavenge and craft an array of resources and items, including building materials, which you can use to build your own base.


Hai Wang, Senior Director, Business Development, at Garena, said: "Gamers in the region have a deep appreciation for shooter games and exploring open worlds. Coupled with their highly resourceful and inquisitive natures, we're excited to bring them Undawn – a game that is tailor-made to their tastes."

Rick Li, Executive Producer, Lightspeed & Quantum Studios, Tencent Games, said: "Garena is the perfect partner to publish Undawn in the region. We're confident that their unparallelled understanding of the local gaming communities and track record publishing hit titles will provide gamers in the region with a game players will love."

Undawn is currently in its pre-alpha stage of testing. Sign up to be a pre-alpha tester here.

Undawn builds on Garena's track record of bringing gamers in the region titles suited to their local tastes and preferences – based on Garena's strong insights and understanding of gamers in the region. It unveiled Call of Duty®: Mobile – Garena at the previous edition of Garena World in 2019, which delivers the franchise's iconic gameplay in a brand new experience for mobile users in the region.
