Although the battle royale video game genre has been around for quite some years with titles of the likes of Counter-Strike, it's now when it's living its greatest popularity thanks to games like PUBG or Fortnite, which have even led consolidated sagas such as Call of Duty and Battlefield to consider the inclusion of this mode in their titles. So now there are battle royale shooters all over the place, games in which we have to fight to be the last survivor creating alliances with other players to defeat the strongest opponents.
Project Darwin: survive in the Canadian Rockies
And this Darwin Project looks like it's going to be the next hit: an action-packed shooter game developed by an indie studio that has had a great reception on behalf of PC and PS4 gamers. It takes place in a dystopian and post-apocalyptic future in Canada. The main characters are part of a project called Darwin in which they have to survive the adverse weather conditions and fight to death between them.
To reach their goal, each participant has to adapt to the environment and find clues to search for our rivals whilst we cope to create our own weapons and traps. In other words, there's also that crafting component introduced by Fortnite to this kind of game.
Build your own weapons and traps if you want to survive in this hunting ground.
The graphics of Project Darwin remind us of those of other titles of the likes of the above-mentioned Fortnite developed by Epic Games or Overwatch, which leave the realism of PUBG to one side to offer us a scenario that resembles a comic or cartoon strip.
