Darwin Project Evolves Out of Early Access

Steam News announces that Darwin Project is now officially available for Windows on Steam following its Early access run. Word is: "In Darwin Project, ten inmates must survive the elements, track each other, fight, craft tools, and use their social skills to be the last one standing. It's a unique take on battle royale with a Show Director to influence the match and Spectator Interactions to create a one-of-a-kind game show." Here's a trailer and here's more on this free-to-play battle royale/survival game hybrid:
Darwin Project takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new project, half science experiment half live-entertainment, is launched. It's called "Darwin Project" and it challenges 10 participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous arena.

KEY FEATURES:
- SPECTATOR EXPERIENCE:

Through the Spectator Experience Extension, viewers can impact each Darwin Project match in several groundbreaking ways:

  • Cast votes to choose the target of a Power activated by the Show Director
  • Place bets on which inmate or team they think will emerge victorious
  • Bid for Powers normally reserved for Show Directors & unleash them in a Private Match

- SHOW DIRECTOR:
The Show Director is the living bridge between the players and spectators. He/She is the host and master who controls the arena with nuclear bombs, zone closures, gravity storms, and the power of their voice. This could be a real tool of self discovery; the start of your new career as a charming but deadly game show host.

- DYNAMIC, TACTICAL GAMEPLAY WITH SURVIVAL ELEMENTS:
Gather resources, craft tools, upgrade your gear, track your enemies, engage in both melee and ranged combat, and be the last inmate left alive.
