Midwinter Entertainment showed off a trailer for new 'co-opetition' game Scavengers at last night's Keighleys, and I love them for the word co-opetition. A full list of platforms isn't known as of yet, but it's set to launch in 2019.
According to the attached blurb on the trailer, 'a cataclysmic event has led to a new ice age, and a vast, frozen wasteland awaits exploration. The best chance of overcoming the challenges of this post-apocalyptic world is by working together. Faced with extreme weather and limited resources, hostile inhabitants and opposing players, explorers must team up to complete objectives, improve their gear, weapons, and tools, and ensure the survival of the human race.'
The Midwinter staff includes folks that have worked on things like Call of Duty, Halo and Battlefield, so there's no questioning the pedigree. Let's just wait and see how this co-opetition pans out.
Again. Co-opetition. Oustanding.
You can sign up to playtest the game next year by heading to the official website, but in the meantime, have a look at the trailer below to see the snow and cold and guns.
