Since the release of PUBG, there has been an indisputable obsession for the battle royale games. And it doesn’t look like this trend is going to fade anytime soon. Especially when you look at all the free-to-play battle royale games getting released, like Darwin Project.
Darwin Project, which could be the next PUBG killer, was first announced in Microsoft’s press conference at E3 2017. All thanks to the successful early access of the game on PC and Xbox One, Darwin Project has been officially released on January 14, 2020.
The game is available for PC, PS4, and of course, Xbox One. PC gamers can play Darwin Project on Steam without paying a penny.
How Darwin Project Stands Out From Other Battle Royale Games?
Darwin Project is set in a post-apocalyptic Canada, and it will take you to a new ice age. And honestly speaking, this game is a lot more complicated than any other battle royale game. How so?
Well, all 10 participants in the game will have to do a lot more to survive the battlefield, other than just killing other players. For starters, players have to make a fire to withstand the extreme cold, or else, they’ll freeze to death. Also, they have to continuously collect material to craft gear in the game, which is insanely challenging.
Interestingly, the game takes a new spin in the battle royale genre by introducing the role of Show Director. So, a player can put on the cape of the Show Director and hold power to unleash various challenges in front of other players, like gravity storms, nuclear bombs, and much more.
What’s even more interesting about this game is that even spectators have a role to play. Through the Spectator Experience Extention, viewers can cast votes on players or teams who they think will be victorious.
