Microsoft has unveiled another take on the classic Battle Royale formula with The Darwin Project as part of their E3 presentation.
The game has a fun cartoon art style and gives me the feels of Team Fortress 2 crossed with Unreal Tournament. It takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. A new project, half science experiment, half live entertainment is launched, called “The Darwin Project”, which challenges participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a dangerous arena.
Its new core gameplay is being called “the manhunt”, where players “must survive extreme environmental conditions, track opponents and set traps in order to win.”
We don’t have a launch date yet but it’ll certainly be a title to keep an eye out for. The title will be heading to Xbox One and Windows 10.
