Ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R Developers Plan To Enter Battle Royale Arena With Their Upcoming Game
Guys and girls from GSC Game World were behind the cult title STALKER, an open world horror shooter that took place in the infected Chernobyl zone. The game had two sequels and soon after the release of the last one, STALKER: Call of Pripyat, the studio disbanded. From the ashes rose Vostok Games, which developed Survarium, a free-to-play title that didn’t get a positive response from fans. Vostok Games’ next step is creating a battle royale title called Fear the Wolves.
As the famous STALKER, Feat the Wolves takes place inside the irradiated zone around Pripyat and the infamous Chernobyl nuclear plant. The title sounds like a classic battle royale game, with 100 players battling until one becomes a sole survivor. Players will be able to go into the Zone alone or in squads.
But, Feat the Wolves will put some new mechanics to the formula. Firstly, the game will feature anomalies that can kill the player if not prepared. There will be protective equipment scattered around the map so that the focus will be not just killing other players but also surviving the dangerous world of the Zone.
And on top of anomalies, players will have to defend against different mutants that will attack on sight. Finally, dynamically changing weather along with day and night cycle “constantly forces survivors to adapt their strategies, and players can find protective gear that allows them to explore dangerous off-limit zones.” We expect that off-limit zones will contain better equipment but will also be filled with anomalies and deadly mutants.
The game is still very early in development and should be released during the second part of 2018. Before the full version, Vostok Games will release an Early Access version of the game on PC.
