Scavengers PvEvP survival game kicks off early access last April 28, 2021

Scavengers is a modern multiplayer sandbox shooter that mixes survival and battle royale features, and according to Midwinter Entertainment, the game's development from its latest beta testing to its early access launch on April 28, 2021. Scavengers provide a new take on the now-common open-map multiplayer shooter formula, with player-versus-environment-versus-player gameplay that will see players using a variety of tactics in order to achieve their overall aim of remaining alive. Tracking enemies, using storms and shelters, taking advantage of wildlife, and balancing between stealthy or gutsy gunplay are just a few examples of how Scavengers provide ways for squads to conquer the frozen wastes.

Mary Olson and Josh Holmes the developers of the game, mentioned how Scavengers has evolved since its closed beta, and how players are collaborating in new ways as they compete for data points and fight environmental AI. The challenges of making a new game under pandemic circumstances are also discussed, as well as how Midwinter Entertainment has managed to remain together in the game despite being apart in practice. The topic then moves on to the environment Scavengers is creating, as well as the PvEvP structures that distinguish the game.

Scavengers is now available on Steam as an Early Access Game, allowing players who participated in previous playtests or the closed beta to hop right into the frosty chaos. You can also use a Steam key for Scavengers if you already have one. Onboarding is currently done via Twitch drops on Scavengers streams that have them unlocked for new players and those eager to enter the strategic shooter.
