[Playtest registration] Earlier today on YouTube Live held at E3 2019, Josh Holmes, CEO of Midwinter Entertainment, revealed the first gameplay for “Scavengers,” a class-based multiplayer shooter with a unique “co-opetition” twist. 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 (PvPvE) 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. Scavengers is powered by SpatialOS, Improbable’s unique cloud-based solution for multiplayer games. Midwinter Entertainment, a new independent studio based in Seattle, is the developer and publisher of Scavengers. The game is available first for PC in 2020, with console releases to follow.
