Survive the post-apocalyptic danger zone of Fear the Wolves, the upcoming competitive Battle Royale FPS by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R veterans, Vostok Games. The game drops players, in squads or as lone wolves, into the oppressive environments of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. The classic Battle Royale mode forces them to fight to be the last man standing out of 100 fighters, while another to-be-unveiled mode brings an exciting twist to the genre.

To secure the top spot, players will need to worry about more than just other survivors. Across the hostile wastes, everyone is threatened by deadly anomalies and the dynamically-changing weather. With time wearing on and the day turning to dusk, survivors are forced to constantly adapt their strategies. Protective gear allows players to explore dangerous off-limit radioactive zones inaccessible to less-equipped opponents - but filled with powerful loot. All the while, the howls of mutated creatures echo through the wasteland…



Further breaking the mold of the genre, every game is made truly unique by the irregular and unpredictable spread of deadly radiation, which organically closes in on players with different stages of toxicity. Safety is rarely certain, and adept players will need to read the environment to determine when it is no longer wise to remain in an area. Between all this, other players, tight shooting mechanics, and an arsenal of guns and melee weapons at your disposal, no two matches are the same.

These new screenshots showcase some of the locales players will visit while scavenging for weapons and hunting other players, including factories, power plants, small towns, and villages. There is also an exclusive first look at the game's mutant wolves - fearsome creatures that stalk the perimeters of radioactive zones, attacking players in packs and proving formidable foes for anyone not adequately armed.

More information will be revealed at E3 2018 next month, so stay tuned for more!

Fear the Wolves comes to PC in 2018, later on consoles. Early Access begins this summer on PC.

Anything from Vostok is a win imo.
If this is anything lik the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series then this might actually be the one BR game I play.

Will it cost more than fortnite?
Lol, Fortnite is cheap? I think not, technically Fortnite is free, but how long do you play before you buy another skin / emote? Epic games is pumping this aspect VERY aggressively....where do you think they got the 100 million dollars to invest in E-Sports for Fortnite?

Was trying to follow this game when I first heard rumours of it then they just 'annouced' it earlier this year without any details or a trailer or absolutely anything so nice to get some info about it. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

So they have sent out the first wave of closed beta keys. Anyone on here get in or actually entered? And if any of you have played yet, what is it like?

Also the addition of the EA coming on the 18th was annouced as well. [$20 is the pricetag, and the vedict is: DO NOT BUY IT------YET]

ATM [In its current beta state (yes I know 'beta')]: This game is virtually dog****/100, the easiest way to explain it, is that 7 days to die got a BR mod with the worst server code + horrible gun mechanics. I will wait till the patches start coming out before I completely abondon it, but for now I beg that no-one spends a cent on it.

PLayed first game. The sound is all over the place, movement takes around a century to register, the wolves are probably the worst model I have seen and have a jump animation from a ps1 game, it honestly feels like it can be something. The random 2m wide radiation zones are a bit of a myth to me, as they carry no place in the game. The wolves just feel out of place plain and simple. Can;t really say much other than I am not getting my hopes up for this game until I see any sort of major improvements, regardless of it being a beta.

Hit registration feels bad, very bad, and it is 100% not 186ms of ping, or just really, really shitty coding because that feels closer to 600
