Scavengers puts players in the role of young explorers working in opposing teams as they fight to survive in a future where cataclysmic events have triggered a new ice age. In Scavengers, PvP and PvE gameplay are combined and balanced to create a tense, deep and highly variable experience. Players must battle perilous weather conditions, predatory wildlife and sophisticated AI enemies in a world that combines exploration, survival and combat elements, while maintaining a focus on teamwork and cooperative game mechanics.
“The whole of Midwinter is thrilled to share Scavengers’ gameplay for the first time,” said Holmes. “Over the past year and a half we’ve been building a unique gameplay experience that we’ve come to describe as ‘co-opetition’. The footage we’re sharing today showcases that exciting combination of PvE and PvP, featuring four of our characters, each with unique abilities, fighting to survive in the hostile world of Scavengers. We’re currently holding closed playtests on PC and we’re excited to engage the community in our next phase of development.”
