The Darwin Project takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new half science experiment, half live-entertainment project is launched. It's called The Darwin Project and it challenges inmates to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous snow-covered arena.
The game offers a competitive multiplayer third person survival experience featuring at its core a new gameplay innovation: the manhunt. In his or her path to victory, a player must survive extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, and set traps in order to win. The seven players will try to outsmart each other using crafting, tracking, hunting, cunning, and other survivalist skills, and even negotiate temporary alliances to come out on top at sunrise.
With The Darwin Project, the team is reimagining the Battle Royale arena-survival sub-genre, adding on elements of a reality show -- complete with a ‘Show Director’ who calls the shots and controls the arena, to create an entirely new competitive experience. In a twist, the Show Director can control things in the arena, adding a new level of engagement.
