We take on a battle to survive against the freezing cold and a handful of other players, all trying to get their (frozen) chicken dinner in this let's play Darwin Project gameplay video.
In this first Darwin Project gameplay video, we play one match after a few warm-ups on a European server, discovering how to craft items such as ammo, shields, fur coats, speed boots and more advanced tech stuff.
And hey, we do quite well! See if we can make it all the way to #1, and whether the game's promise of forcing people to interact more than in other genre games holds true as we lurk in the snow, raiding huts and chopping trees.
"The Darwin Project takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new project, half science experiment half live-entertainment, is launched. It's called the "Darwin Project" and it challenges participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous arena.
The Darwin Project 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."
