The fashion of the Battle Royal games is all that it gives, so Focus Home Interactive and Vostok Games, creators of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., announced the development of Fear the Wolves for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
This project is about a first-person shooter that will take us to a post-apocalyptic world. In particular, the title will be developed in Chernobyl, an area devastated by radiation.
There we will have to survive not only the environment but also the attacks of the other players, who will try to hunt us down. Being a Battle Royal title, it will feature games on extensive maps, where 100 players will test their skills.
Fear the Wolves also promises a new game mode “intense and original”, which will give an interesting twist to the genre. The studios promised more information about it in the future.
The title will have climatic conditions that will change throughout the games. Also, there will be a day and night cycle, which will modify the strategy to follow during the meetings.
The companies hinted at the presence of dangerous mutant creatures, but there is still no precise information about them. Fear the Wolves will arrive at the aforementioned platforms sometime in 2018.
Vostok Game confirmed that the title will first arrive on PC through Steam Early Access. There is not yet a release date set for this, so we’ll have to wait for more information.
The companies will reveal other details of Fear the Wolves in “What’s Next event in Paris”, a Focus Home Interactive event that starts today and will end on February 12. There they will also offer information about The Surge 2, title revealed a few moments ago.
