Set against a post-apocalyptic backdrop, an impending ice age has kick-started a twisted new reality show, in which participants must fight to the death to earn their survival. Darwin Project offers a competitive multiplayer third-person experience with an emphasis on survival. Players must withstand extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, craft tools, set traps, and negotiate temporary alliances to be the last one standing at sunrise.
Darwin Project kicks off its first PC Closed Alpha Weekend today, and is slated to launch on Xbox One and PC in spring 2018. For the latest updates, visit Scavengers Studio’s official website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Reddit and Instagram.
