Darwin Project Goes Free-to-Play

This post on Steam from Scavengers Studio creative director Simon Darveau announces that Darwin Project has evolved to become a free-to-play title. This seems like a fairly natural selection for a game looking to compete in the burgeoning Battle Royale space. They say that those who paid for the game will receive a Founder's Pack next week, and promise that Darwin Project will never become pay-to-win. Here's more:

“We’ve said from the start that we’re committed to creating a fresh and exciting experience for Darwin Project players and viewers. With features like the Show Director who serves as a master of ceremonies, Spectator Interactions that let viewers directly interact with streams, and an emphasis on tracking that ensures players are always within arm’s reach of a tense confrontation, we still believe Darwin Project offers a quality experience unlike any other battle royale game out there.

“We’ve been fortunate to have a core community of players join us at a very early stage, with many still supporting us during Early Access, and the last thing we want to do is let those passionate players down. Lately, members of our community have reported longer queue times and difficulty finding matches in lesser populated servers. To bring in new players and maintain a level of activity that ensures players are able to get the most of out Darwin Project, we’ve decided to make it more accessible by removing the price tag.

“We’re aware that it’s a big change, and we want to reiterate that we’re remaining true to Darwin Project’s vision as we move forward.”
