The Battle Royale game Fear The Wolves will be available on Steam Early Access next week, development studio Vostok Games announced.
Fear The Wolves is said to be inspired by the classic S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise as the studio comprises former franchise developers.
The game will drop players in a Chernobyl-style radioactive wasteland. Deadly mutated wildlife, the organic spread of radiation, unexplainable anomalies, and 99 other players stand in their way on their march to the extraction helicopter inside the final zone.
Players will have to defend themselves with an arsenal of scavenged weaponry, including fire-axes, machine guns and more.
Unlike other Battle Royale games, the end game focuses on a single player being extracted by a helicopter. However, killing all players will also lead to victory. The location of the extraction zone will vary game to game, forcing adaptation and rewarding intricate map knowledge.
Fear The Wolves will be making its way to Steam Early Access on Wednesday, July 18, 2018.
Update: The development studio behind the game has announced it has delayed the Early Access launch of the game. A new date has yet to be announced.
