The Culling Origins Goes Free-to-Play

The free-to-play era for The Culling is now underway on Steam, offering the chance at a free chicken dinner in this Windows and macOS battle royale game. The game still carries its original name in spite of their repeated indications it is now called The Culling: Origins. This post discusses the change in direction for the game, which they gratefully call a second chance. Here's a bit:

When The Culling originally launched in March of 2016, it had an exciting, “anything goes” approach to battle royale that was eventually sanded down over the course of many updates. Origins brings back that special mojo by returning to the game’s roots, incorporating the spirit of Day 1 combat, perks, airdrops and overall gameplay.

Blending the classic with the new, Origins also offers some big improvements over the original. Origins introduces a stunning new art direction that modernizes the original feel of The Culling. It also adds new features, including XP and leveling, leaderboards, Cull Crates, hundreds of new cosmetics, new weapons, skill-based matchmaking, and voice chat.

There are some systems (such as wounds) that don’t match Day 1, nor do they utilize what was in the latest live version of the game. Whenever we encountered a situation where we felt that the Day 1 approach wasn’t viable, we utilized surveys to gather community feedback that informed our decisions.
