Developer Other Ocean Interactive just announced that their social deception game, Project Winter, is coming to Xbox consoles and Windows 10 Store. The game will also be available on Xbox' Game Pass subscription service.
After garnering copious amounts of success on Steam, Project Winter will now also be available for Xbox consoles as well as the Windows 10 Store.
"We are excited that Project Winter will launch with crossplay so that Xbox and Windows 10 players will be able to join the community of over one million survivors who’ve been uncovering traitors, backstabbing their teammates, and battling the elements since the game’s launch," said Other Ocean’s Product Director, Ryan Hale.
Project Winter places eight players into the frozen heart of the icy tundra. The players will have to work together to escape the approaching blizzard as well as the deathly intentions of fellow team members.
"Project Winter’s proximity-based voice chat encourages players to stick together and work in groups to survive," says Hale. "Players that wander off run the risk of having their desperate cries for help rendered useless when running into trouble."
The survivors will battle against the freezing elements as well as the traitors in their midst. These up-to-no-good players will deceive, sabotage, and even commit murder to thwart their teammates’ efforts to escape.
The promise of a bunch of threats in games usually comes with hope - a wide variety of weapons one can use to gain the upper hand and cling desperately to any chance of survival.
Project Winter explores the massively popular social deception game genre by combining familiar game mechanics such as crafting and resource gathering with hidden-role gameplay for an intriguing and challenging experience.
New Xbox players will have access to the same features as PC players in their quest for survival and escape; including text chat, emotes and proximity voice channels. No matter what platform you’re playing on, the icy and unforgiving wilderness of Project Winter provides a challenge filled with sabotage, betrayal and starving grizzly bears. Oh my.
Project Winter is available now on Steam and will be available on Xbox consoles and the Windows 10 Store on January 26, 2021, as well as a free download on Xbox Game Pass.
