10-player survival-focused battle royale

Players are always within arm's reach of a tense confrontation with rivals. Contestants getting careless or hoping to hide out and avoid encounters will soon find themselves frozen to death―if they don’t invite the Show Director’s fury first.

Tracking and manhunting

Every action, from building a fire to crafting items, leaves clues behind that can be used to track players to their current location. Make creative use of weapons, traps, and scavenged tools to gain the upper hand―all while keeping an eye out for other participants hunting you.

Show director

The Show Director adds a new dimension to the battle royale genre. In each match, an eleventh player can take on the role of the Show Director, who oversees the arena in a drone and can unleash special powers like nukes, zone closures, and gravity storms.
