Battle royale titles are becoming increasingly popular and with the success of games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the genre is thriving. One such game which was revealed during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference was "Darwin Project".

Today, Scavengers Studio announced that Darwin Project is now available on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview for $14.99. Everyone who participated in Darwin Project's Alpha or Beta tests will receive complimentary entry to the Steam Early Access version. Since no such test took place on Xbox One, there won't be a similar promotion on the console.

Keep in mind that the game is still in development and may experience significant performance issues and other bugs on both platforms. You can try out Darwin Project before you purchase it on Xbox One.

Darwin Project takes place in a post-apocalyptic environment in 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 emphasis on crafting and setting traps. However it goes deeper then that. Aside from surviving the cold, you have to track opponents and even negotiate temporary alliances to be the last one standing when the sun goes up.

  • Fortnite but, you craft to survive... not build
  • It's exactly like Fortnite...except for the fact that it's 10 players, there is a director, there are survival elements, you craft powerups, and you only have a bow and axe.
