Vostok Games Releases High-Res Screenshots for Battle Royale FPS Fear the Wolves

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.

I'm not sure screenshots are what sells a battle royale title. It's about the gameplay, you'll never have time to admire the textures (remember players lowering details in CS just to get high, smooth FPS?).

So, milking half-finised and other-half-broken Survarium, which has been in alpha/beta/early access for the past half-a-decade (or more, cause I only signed up for beta back in 2013 and it's been already running for some time) is not enough. Now they need to slap "Battle Royale" to it and sell you basically the same broken and miserable Free-to-play game. Bravo, Vostok Games. You've managed to exceed my already low expectations.

P.S. Screenshots #2 and #3 are from same maps I've been playing back in 2013 (one is an abandoned village, and the other one is an industrial railroad depot).

What's the problem? Let them try... If it's free to play like Survarium, all the better. Survarium just wasn't the type of game players crave these days. A 'redirection' into battle royal might be what this game needed for success. Fortnite did the same thing.

The problem is, they still have some promises to fulfill for their first "Prodigal Child".
I'm not angry at them because it's following fads and trends, I'm furious, because it's the same f^$*ng game, only now with mutant wolves!

I don't think turning it into a battle royal is just adding mutant wolves.

Battle Royale is literally Free for All without respawning (you wait till round is over). So innovative, much new...

Well, then you never played a battle royal before? Because there are literally many more differences. Shrinking map etc.

From a developer perspective, you don't just convert any old shooter into a battle royal with two lines of code in a day. It's way more complex than that. Otherwise, you would see many more of those Fortnite conversions happening, if it was that simple.

... with a few interesting twists (no respawn, shrinking map, larger number of players). But yes, at its heart, it's nothing new, and I'm hoping that when all these PUBG/Fortnite clones start to flop, the "battle royale" concept will be consigned to the dustbin of history where it belongs.
