Vostok Games announces an upcoming contender in the Battle Royale genre with Fear The Wolves. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. veterans describe it as a twist on the genre with the post-apocalyptic setting of the nuclear radiation ravaged Chernobyl. Vostok Games also teases that outside of the Battle Royale, there is a yet-to-be-revealed mode to take the genre in a new direction.
While most Battle Royale games (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite) pit players against each other for the final spot, Fear The Wolves player will have to concern themselves with environmental elements as well. From shifts in weather patterns to a day/night cycle, players will have to be strategic about surviving both enemy opposition and the dangers of an irradiated zone. Fear The Wolves is also expected to make use of the weather patterns to spread the toxic radiation in an unpredictable fashion.
Players will be able to find protective gear which will allow them to navigate dangerous locations in the zone, but they will also have to fight mutated beasts for the sweet loot the areas hold. Speaking of loot, Fear The Wolves will have a ton of guns and melee weapons along with the aforementioned gear to help you survive whatever the nuclear wastes have to throw at you… including each other.
