Focus Home Interactive has published the first ever footage of the upcoming Battle Royale title from the developers of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Survarium: Fear The Wolves.
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. The game is also expected to make use of the weather patterns to spread the toxic radiation in an unpredictable fashion.
As the radioactivity of an area worsens, reality begins to break down. Dangerous areas distort and enter flux as they pulse with radiation. In the early stages, the adrenaline from sprinting will stop you taking damage, but after that only gas masks and hazard, suits will keep the poisonous air and deadly rays out. You are never safe, but you can be more protected than your enemies, using this advantage to access areas they can’t, to loot more and flank them.
Extraction is your ultimate goal. Fear the Wolves challenges players to get out how they came in, with a final dash to an extraction helicopter that accepts just one occupant. The location of the extraction zone will vary from game to game, forcing adaptation and rewarding intricate map knowledge. If you manage to wipe out every other player, you still take home the victory – so choose your path wisely.
