“The Darwin Project,” a Hunger Games-esque battle royale game based around audience participation has begun its first open beta period this weekend, January 19th to January 21st on Windows 10 PC.
In this open beta, two new features are introduced:
- Show Directors — Stream hosts control the match and have the ability to change the course of the arena with nuclear bombs, zone closures, gravity storms, and even their voice. They can queue these various in-game events and have the viewers vote on how the arena will change.
- “Manhunt” power — Viewers can vote on a “manhunt” target, who is a specific player that the other players will be encouraged to go after for extra points to.
The Darwin Project’s open beta is available now on Windows 10 PC via Steam from now until January 21st, 2018. For more information, visit the official blog.
