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 announced during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference was Darwin Project.
Today, Scavengers Studio announced that Darwin Project should launch on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview on March 9, 2018 for $14.99.
Darwin Project's launch into early access kicks off the next phase of development and it's also the first time Xbox One combatants have a chance to take to the arena. According to the developer, whether they're fighting for their survival or casting their judgement on the battlefield, Xbox One players will finally get to experience the joys of booby trapping a cabin or sniping an enemy into a lava pit from a nearby mountain.
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. It's called 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.
