Today, Focus Home Interactive and Vostok Games announced Fear The Wolves. Fear The Wolves is a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter Battle Royale experience. Given the success of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, many developers want to capitalize on the craze by introducing their own games. We've seen titles like The Culling and Fortnite do just that.
Vostok Games is the team behind the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games are part of the survival horror genre and many garnered critical acclaim upon release. Mechanics like collecting resources and managing your inventory are part of the gameplay which takes place in Chernobyl.
Fear the Wolves also drops players — in squads or as "lone wolves" — into the oppressive environment of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. According to the developer, the classic Battle Royale mode forces gamers to fight to be the last person standing out of a hundred fighters. To secure the top spot, players will need to worry about more than just other survivors. Across the hostile land, everyone is threatened by deadly anomalies, dynamically-changing weather, and changing lighting conditions.
Off-limit zones play a major role in Fear The Wolves because they contain many secrets. Players can find protective gear throughout the map that allows them to explore these dangerous regions. Just like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise, gamers might also have to contend with mutated creatures.
Fear The Wolves is scheduled to launch in 2018 on PC and consoles. Aside from standard Battle Royale matches, the game will feature a second original game mode. Hopefully the title will be a polished experience when it launches later this year.
