Battle royale games are becoming increasingly popular, and with the success of titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the genre is thriving. One such game which was revealed during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference was the "Darwin Project".
Many months ago, developer Scavengers Studio announced that Darwin Project was available on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview for $14.99. There were also reports that the game wasn't doing as well as other titles in the genre. Soon afterwards, it was revealed that the game was going free-to-play on PC. However, a decision wasn't made regarding the Xbox One edition.
Today, Scavengers Studio announced on Twitter that the game was going free-to-play on Xbox One on July 4, 2018. Early adopters will get a "Founder's Pack" on July 3. The update which makes Darwin Project free-to-play will also bring with it a number of performance enhancements to Xbox One.
Darwin Project takes place in a post-apocalyptic Canada. As civilization prepares for an upcoming ice age, a twisted new project emerges, half science experiment and half entertainment. Unsurprisingly, it's called the Darwin Project and it challenges participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous arena. According to the developer, the game offers a competitive multiplayer third-person experience with an emphasis on survival. There's a strong focus on crafting and setting up traps. However it goes deeper then that. Aside from surviving the cold, you have to track opponents and even negotiate temporary alliances in order to be the last one standing when the sun goes up.
