The Darwin Project is now available for digital download on Xbox One for free!
Darwin Project is an outdoor, futuristic, battle royale style deathmatch with a strong emphasis on hunting trapping, and survival. Not only will you be pitted against fierce rivals, but you'll compete for the favor of an all-seeing Show Director.
The game takes place in the snowy Canadian Rocky mountains. Players must first conquer the cold, crafting fires and warm clothing; then find clues, lay traps, and hunt down the other contestants. To be the last inmate standing, players use combat, crafting, tracking, and their personality.
Featuring arcade style third-person combat, the fighting system is at once primal, with the main weapons being an axe and bow, and futuristic with powers such as teleportation and energy shields. The twist is the addition of a Show Director, a player character that runs the show, spicing things up or balancing as need be.
