Scavengers Studio revealed that their upcoming battle royal title, The Darwin Project, was coming to the Xbox One!

During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, we got a brief look at what The Darwin Project is all about. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies right before an impending ice storm, a new game of sorts is announced. This game (or project) challenges participants to fight each other while trying to survive the cold. It’s basically, Battle Royal/The Hunger Games but without the story constraints; this seems to be purely for entertainment as opposed to punishing a group of people.

The Darwin Project is a third-person experience with an emphasis on survival. Players must survive the cold while tracking opponents, crafting tools, setting traps and so on. One of the more interesting aspects is the game’s Show Director mode. This mode allows a player to survey the entire arena aboard an invincible drone. From here they’ll be able to influence the outcome of a match via tools that are slowly unlocked. Like in The Hunger Games, the director will be able to lock down zones, call in airstrikes, and basically assist/hinder players as they see fit.

As of right now, The Darwin Project is slated for launch on the Xbox One and PC in spring 2018. It’ll be joining The Culling and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds – two more titles where the object is to be kill a bunch of strangers online. Fun times!
