Scavengers Giveaway – Check Out This PvPvE Survival Shooter from Ex Halo Franchise Director Josh Holmes


Scavengers, the PvPvE survival shooter in development at Midwinter Entertainment (founded by ex Halo franchise director Josh Holmes in 2018 and acquired by Improbable in late 2019), has finally launched on Steam Early Access yesterday.

However, the game can't actually be purchased yet. Instead, the developer has opted for a system where anyone interested can get a key via Twitch Drops. To do this, you'd have to create (and link) both a Twitch account and an Improbable account, though. For those who'd rather skip all these steps, we're giving away a thousand Steam codes on a first-come, first-served basis. Just complete the actions mentioned in the bow below and grab your key.

In case you're not familiar with the game, Scavengers is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the Earth is essentially frozen, following the shattering of the Moon due to an asteroid impact. Worse, it brought a virus that mutated the remaining life forms in dangerous ways.

Now, player characters live off-planet but drop on the planet for quick raids, where they scavenge anything useful (against the environment itself, the mutated marauder NPCs, and other players) before leaving again with the spoils.

  • Secure Victory in Various Ways: To win a match in Scavengers teams must survive, battle against both AI opponents and rival squads, and exfil the planet with the most datapoints. How you do it is up to you: avoid contact with other players, stealthily pick off vulnerable foes from afar, or go toe-to-toe by boldly challenging rivals head-on. A team only loses when all three members are eliminated.
  • Choose Unique Explorers: Players have multiple characters, or “Explorers”, to choose from. Each Explorer comes equipped with a signature weapon and a unique ability; a range of dynamic powers to buff defense, agility, utility, and more.
  • Set Dedicated Loadouts: Mix-and-match weapons, items, and abilities to build the ideal loadout to fit a variety of playstyles. While many weapons can be found throughout the frozen wasteland, players can also create distinctive weapons via crafting recipes to further diversify their equipment.

Scavengers, powered by Unreal Engine 4, features Improbable's SpatialOS technology. It also already supports NVIDIA DLSS for increased performance.

The game will be fully released later this year on PC, with console versions further off.
