The game of deception Project Winter will be released in January 2021 in Xbox Game Pass and offers cross-play.
Developer Other Ocean Interactive is proud to announce that its groundbreaking social trickery game Project Winter is coming to Xbox consoles, the Windows 10 Store, and millions of Game Pass players later this month.
“We are thrilled that Project Winter will launch with crossplay, so Xbox and Windows 10 gamers will be able to join the community of over a million survivors who have exposed traitors and betrayed their teammates since the game launched and fought the elements, “said Other Ocean’s Product Director, Ryan Hale.
Cut off from all external communication, surrounded by icy tundra and wrapped in a thick blanket of paranoia and suspicion, the eight-person multiplayer game is stranded in the icy wilderness, where you have to work together to face the approaching snowstorm and the deadly intentions of your team members escape.
“Project Winter’s innovative proximity-based voice chat encourages players to stick together and work in groups to survive,” says Hale. “Solo players who wander run the risk of their desperate cries for help becoming useless when they get into trouble.”
Survivors must fight both the icy elements and the traitors in their midst, who cheat, sabotage and even murder in order to thwart their teammates’ attempts to escape. For those players who encounter wild animals or grueling teammates on their journey, there are a variety of weapons they can use to gain the upper hand and desperately cling to a chance of survival.
Project Winter is a pioneer in the popular genre of social deception games, which combines familiar game mechanics such as crafting and resource gathering with hidden role-playing for an addicting and challenging experience. New Xbox players will have access to the same features as PC gamers in their attempt to survive and escape, including text chat, emotes, and nearby voice channels.
Regardless of which platform you play on, the icy and ruthless wilderness of Project Winter offers a challenge full of sabotage, betrayal and starving grizzly bears.
Project Winter is available now on Steam and will be available on Xbox consoles and the Windows 10 Store on January 26, 2021, and as a free download from Xbox Game Pass.
