Welcome to our 1st Free Open Beta Weekend!
Friday noon PST – Sunday 9 pm PST
Friday 3 pm EST – Sunday midnight EST
Friday 9 pm UTC+1 (CET) – Monday 6 am UTC+1 (CET)
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 "Darwin Project" and it challenges 10 participants to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous arena.
– MANHUNT & SURVIVAL:
Track the position of enemies, by using environmental clues they left behind and be creative with your use of crafted traps to take the upperhand. The biting cold of the Northern Canadian Rockies will also slowly freeze you should you be careless.
– SHOW DIRECTOR:
The Show Director is the living bridge between the players and spectators. He/She is the host and master who controls the arena with nuclear bombs, zone closures, gravity storms, and the power of their voice. This could be a real tool of self discovery; the start of your new career as a charming but deadly game show host.
– LIVE SPECTATOR INTERACTIONS:
Stream viewers on Mixer* can also bet live on the competitors they think will reign supreme, in addition to helping the Show Director choose targets for their arena-shaping powers. Whether they’re voting on which player deserves a death-defying heal or which zone to nuke, it’s time for spectators to become active participants in the manhunt!
To try out this feature, Darwin Project devs will be hosting matches on Darwin Project Mixer Channel as Show Directors during the entire duration of the Open beta weekend (from 4pm to 7pm (EST)).
*Twitch integration in on its way, stay tuned!
