Darwin Project Overview

Fight to the death on the freezing landscapes of northern Canada Rockies in Darwin Project. You are one of the unlucky inmates starring in a reality show that pits ten combatants against each other in a fight to the death. Do you have what it takes to survive? Scavenge for resources and craft the necessary gear to help you survive the harsh frozen environment. The cold can kill you as swiftly as your opponents so be sure to stay warm. Loot advanced electronic parts to craft better equipment such as energy shields and stealth cloaks to give you the upperhand. Choose to play solo and take on other combatants alone or join a duo match so you have someone to guard your back. Fancy playing god? Join the match as the Show Director and control the flow of the match with god-like powers. Help out a struggling player with a well-deserved heal or make life harder for a strong player by organizing a manhunt. Shut down zones, drop nukes, and play with gravity to make matches a little more interesting.

Darwin Project Key Features:

  • 10-Man Battle Royale – less players and a smaller map make for faster-paced matches compared to conventional battle royale games.
  • Survive The Environment – scavenge for resources to craft gear that will help you survive the frozen environment.
  • Hunt And Survive – hunt down your opponents using visual clues the leave behind or set up traps and bide your time to set up the perfect ambush.
  • Show Director – play as the Show Director and gain almost god-like powers to affect the outcome and flow of the match. Help out the combatants or make life harder for them with a variety of skills ranging from heals to nuclear bombs.
  • Spectator Interactions – you can still play an active part in the match even when you’re dead. Help the Show Director decide how to use his powers through votes.
