With the massive success of PUBG and the free-to-play battle royale mode in Fortnite it should come as no surprise that developers are starting to hop on the bandwagon. Focus Home Interactive and the dev team behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Vostok Games, have joined forces to throw their hat into the ring with their recently announced post-apocalyptic, FPS, battle royale title Fear the Wolves.
Focus Home and Vostok have been working on the title for several months now but revealed it to the world during the “Le What’s Next de Focus” event taking place in Paris right now. According to the press release:
“Fear the Wolves 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. A second intense and original game mode will also bring a fierce new 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 dynamically-changing weather. Along with a day-night cycle, this constantly forces survivors to adapt their strategies, and players can find protective gear that allows them to explore dangerous off-limit zones. All the while, the howls of mutated creatures echo through the wasteland…”
As of right now, Fear the Wolves is set for a 2018 launch on PC and consoles with an early access for PC at some point before then. More details should be forthcoming at this week’s Le What’s Next de Focus as well.

Clone games of popular games which were ALREADY clone games of popular games almost never do well. Like.....I can't think of any. Maybe Left 4 Dead. (although technically Killing Floor didn't clone the Killing Floor Mod)
