despite lingering concerns from users about the original
This offers a second bite at the battle royale apple, but according to
, the game is
already down to just a few players (thanks
). It shows a 24-hour peak of 26 players, and an all-time
peak of 249 players, which is not going to make for many of the game's signature
25-versus-25 matches. Here's the description of the game from developer and
publisher Xaviant Games:
You think you know Battle Royale? This is Battle
Royale distilled into its purest form. The game mechanics, the match pacing, and
the online server performance are all tuned to provide the cleanest, rawest,
most visceral competition on the planet. It's everything you need and nothing
In 2016, The Culling emerged as the world's first built-from-scratch Battle
Royale experience. Featuring a lush island arena, brutal melee combat, and a
long list of perks to help you define your play style, The Culling offered the
most intense experience many contestants had ever experienced.
The Culling 2 expands on every aspect of its predecessor: The arena is now a
massive space, with 20 square kilometers in which to explore, loot, and fight.
In addition to the established melee combat system, a wide range of firearms are
now on offer, from 9mm pistols to high-caliber sniper rifles. All ballistics
have been carefully tuned to match real-world equivalents, making for tense and
tactical firefights. With 50 players, the matches are set to be fast and brutal,
while still accommodating players who prefer a more cautious approach.
If you think you have what it takes, it's time to suit up and compete in the
next season of the original deadly game show: The Culling 2.
