Fear the Wolves debuts at E3 2018 in first footage – Early Access starts this Summer on Steam
Focus Home Interactive and the developers at Vostok Games have revealed a new Fear the Wolves E3 trailer. This is a first glimpse at the dark setting, player vs environment elements, and endgame extraction of this Battle Royale FPS.
About The Game:
Drop into a radioactive wasteland with nothing but your wits, fists, and whatever you can find to protect you. Deadly mutated wildlife, the organic spread of radiation, unexplainable anomalies, and 99 other players stand in your way on your long march to the extraction helicopter inside the final zone.
To defend oneself, the players have an arsenal of scavenged weaponry. The fire-axe is a silent killer but won’t do much good as the knife in a gunfight. Abandoned weaponry is scattered around the map, but you will need to scavenge from air drops, caches and radioactive areas to find the most powerful gear. Every other player will be after them too, bringing the wolves with them.
Wolves are the first of mutants to be revealed. Roaming in packs and picking off stragglers, they have adapted to the radioactive environment and evolved into savage, decaying beasts. While on their own they pose a mere inconvenience, a pack will drain the players’ ammo and leave them injured – or worse – if the player isn’t careful. They’re just as deadly and hostile to the enemies, and how the player uses that will determine the chance of survival.
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 the player from taking damage, but after that only gas masks and hazard suits will keep the poisonous air and deadly rays out.
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 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.
Fear the Wolves comes to PC in 2018, later on consoles. Early Access begins this summer on PC.
