Developer Other Ocean Interactive has announced that its pioneering social deception game, Project Winter, is available now on Xbox consoles and Windows 10 Store. Plus, all Game Pass subscribers will be able to join the action and become a survivor for free as part of their subscription.
“We are excited that Project Winter will launch with crossplay so that Xbox and Windows 10 players are able to join the community of over one million survivors who’ve been uncovering traitors, backstabbing their teammates, and battling the elements since the game’s launch,” said Other Ocean’s Product Director, Ryan Hale.
Cut off from all external communications, stranded in an icy tundra, and surrounded by a thick blanket of paranoia and suspicion, the eight-person multiplayer world of Project Winter abandons players in the freezing wilderness where they must work together to escape the approaching blizzard as well as the deathly intentions of fellow team members.
“Project Winter’s innovative proximity-based voice chat encourages players to stick together and work in groups to survive,” says Hale. “Solo players that wander off run the risk of having their desperate cries for help rendered useless when running into trouble.”
The survivors must battle against the freezing elements as well as the traitors in their midst who will deceive, sabotage, and even commit murder to thwart their teammates’ efforts to escape. For the players that encounter wild animals or murderous teammates on their travels, there’s a variety of weapons they can use to gain the upper hand and cling desperately to their ever-shrinking chance of survival.
Project Winter is a pioneer in the massively popular social deception game genre combining familiar game mechanics such as crafting and resource gathering with hidden-role gameplay for an intriguing and challenging experience. New Xbox players will have access to all the same features as PC players in their quest for survival and escape; including text chat, emotes and proximity voice channels. No matter what platform they’re playing on, the frozen and unforgiving wilderness of Project Winter provides a challenge filled with sabotage, betrayal and starving grizzly bears.
Project Winter is available now on Xbox consoles and the Windows 10 Store, as well as being free to download for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
