Drop into Chernobyl in the Fear the Wolves E3 trailer, the STALKER-inspired Battle Royale FPS
Fear the Wolves debuts at E3 in first footage!
Focus Home Interactive and the STALKER veterans at Vostok Games challenge you to survive in the new Fear the Wolves E3 trailer. Get your first glimpse at the dark setting, PvE elements, and endgame extraction of this unique Battle Royale FPS.
Drop into a radioactive wasteland with nothing but your wits, fists, and whatever you can find to protect you. Deadly mutated wildlife, the organic spread of radiation, unexplainable anomalies, and 99 other players stand in your way on your long march to the extraction helicopter inside the final zone.
To defend yourself you have an arsenal of scavenged weaponry. The trusty fire-axe is a silent killer but won’t do much good as the knife in a gunfight. Abandoned weaponry is scattered around the map, but you will need to scavenge from air drops and other caches to have the best firepower. Of course, everyone else will be after them too, and bringing the wolves with them.
Wolves are the first of our mutants to be revealed. Roaming in packs and picking off stragglers, they have adapted to the radioactive environment and evolved into savage, decaying beasts. While on their own they pose a mere inconvenience, a pack will drain your ammo and leave you injured – or worse – if you aren’t careful. They’re just as deadly and hostile to your enemies, and how you use that will determine your survival.
As the infection in an area worsens, reality begins to break down. Dangerous areas distort and enter flux as they pulse with radiation. Eventually only the adrenaline from sprinting will stop you taking damage, and after that only gas masks and hazard suits will keep the poisonous air out. You are never safe, but you can be more protected than your enemies, and use this advantage to loot more or fine new angles of attack.
Extraction is your ultimate goal. Rather than a slow stalemate, Fear the Wolves challenges players to get out how they came in with a final dash to an extraction helicopter accepting just one occupant. The placement of the final zone and the exact landing location of the helicopter will vary game to game, forcing adaption and rewarding intricate map knowledge. Of course, if you can execute every other player you still take home the victory – so choose your path wisely.
Fear the Wolves comes to Xbox One in 2019.
