Xaviant recently made two huge announcements for The Culling, their take on the battle royale genre of games which have shot up in popularity over the past few years. From the big titles bumping shoulders at the moment, The Culling seems more brutal as it pits you against 16 combatants with next to nothing. Crafting your weapons or calling in loot drops is a key part of this title.
The update is due to roll out on 6th October and brings new additions such as new cosmetics and the highlight of the update for most players, Golden weapons. It will also bring improvements to the game, Xbox voice support for proximity and team chat as well as some key tweaks and big fixes.
The Player Unknown's: Battle Ground (PUBG) bug is still at fever pitch among gamers and it seems to be spreading to developers as well. Epic Games, developer of Fortnite, are now introducing their own version of the games theme. A massive 100 Player versus Player (PvP) hunting game on a giant map, the game finishes when the last player standing wins the Battle Royale mode. Epic has had their Unreal Tournament team hard at work on this mode for a few months now testing it out while the Fortnite team kept working on the main game. To keep the game balanced Epic has kept PvP and Player versus Environment (PvE) separate but found the battle royale mode so much fun they needed to share it to gather feedback.
