Darwin Project Launches on PS4 January 14

Brave the Canadian Rockies — and nine other inmates — in this free-to-play battle royale.

Hello Inmates, and welcome to Darwin Project!

We here at Scavengers Studio are really excited to come to PS4 and add you to our growing list of victimstotally-willing Arena combatants come January 14!

Darwin Project is a Battle Royale game that features 10 inmates fighting for fame and fortune in a gladiator-style Arena somewhere deep in the post-apocalyptic Canadian Rockies, where not only will you have to fight the other inmates in the Arena, but the harshness of Canadian winters as well.

Each Inmate (that’s you!) will enter the Arena equipped with both a battle-ready Axe and Bow that best suits your style, and Corporation-Sponsored high-tech Gear of your choice that will augment your combat capabilities and hopefully give you the edge needed to claim victory over other players, and nature itself.

Let’s not forget the ever watchful eye of the Show Director, an overseer of the Arena who acts as the host of the show, causing chaos wherever they may go with an assortment of abilities such as dropping Nukes, creating oceans of Lava, or even helping inmates by granting them health and resources.

Have you got what it takes to survive? Gear up, the show’s about to start.

Jet Wings

Equip these aerodynamic fuel-injected Jet Wings and take to the skies! Master their maneuverability and acrobatic abilities to daze and amaze your opponents, while raining death on them from above with a flurry of arrows!

Grapple Gauntlet

Like things up close and personal? Then close the gap in the blink of an eye and bring the fight directly to your opponents and give them the chance to meet the business end of your personalized axe, or grab the environment for quick getaways and navigation!

Headhunter Drone

Are you the type of person who likes to have a companion with you when venturing out in the wilderness? Then be sure not to enter the arena with this helpful little friend, who can gather resources for you as well as tracking your opponents to ensure you’re never taken by surprise!

Darwin Project Fun Fact #672: There might not be large monstrous grizzlies roaming the woods of the Arena and stalking Inmates, but if you’re perceptive and look hard enough, you can find their cuddly counterparts hidden in each tile!

See you soon in the Arena!

  • I was interested until I read the words “Battle Royale”.

  • I am willing to try this because it has some new ideas in it.

  • I remember Microsoft showing this game at a conference. Is it already out on Xbox in any capacity? Microsoft was giving me impression that it would be timed.

    • It is officially coming out of beta on 14 Jan and releasing on ps4 Xbox and pc

    • It was out in early access on Xbox One for quite some time. Like most of those though when they launch in a 1.0 state they launch on PS4 and Xbox One at the same time.

  • Interesting take on the BR concept… hope it brings you all success!

  • The game has very low population .if they don’t improve it drastically then it will further lose population

  • So where’s it at ? It’s not in the store least not on the east coast ????

  • I dont see it either

  • The game’s fun but the trophies are completely broken. I just one my first match and got my first elimination and neither of the corresponding trophies popped.

    I also looked at the trophy list and everything has a 0.00% acquisition rate so I’m not alone.

    The latency’s worse in a ten player battle royale than it is is 100 players ones but I’m hoping that’s just the post-launch craze and it will stabilize as the population does.

    • Looks like we can’t edit comments but I “won” a match. I did not “one” a match. Also “it is in 100” not “it is is 100”
