Project Winter

Social deception. Survival. These are the two big keys to winning in Project Winter, an upcoming 8-person multiplayer game where players are randomly assigned to the roles of Traitor or Survivor.

Players will cooperatively work together to gather resources, repair structures, and tackle the elements. However, as the game progresses, those in the group that are the secret Traitors will be steadily growing in strength. As the Survivors try to escape, the Traitors will try to do everything they can to stop that from happening.

A free, open beta for Project Winter begins tomorrow, February 1 and runs through February 3. You can sign up on the Project Winter website for access to the beta. The game is slated to be released into Early Access on February 7 for $19.99. It will be released on Steam, Humble, and Green Man Gaming.

Key Features
  • Escape to Survive - As a survivor amongst a group of strangers, you will have to collect resources, battle the elements and complete a series of tasks to call in one of several rescue vehicles.
  • Hidden Roles - Amongst the group of survivors lurk hidden traitors who are selected at random. The traitors are known to each other but not the survivors. Their goal is to stop the survivors from escaping without being identified and killed.
  • Teamwork - Survivors cannot escape unless they work together. Players who wander off on their own will have difficulty surviving the elements, can fall victim to hostile wildlife, or become easy targets for the traitors.
  • Communication - There are several ways to communicate with other players, including proximity-based voice chat, private voice chat radio channels, text chat, and emotes. Communication is vital if the survivors have any hope of completing their tasks and defending against the traitors.
  • Betrayal & Deception - The traitors are outnumbered and weak when the game begins. They may infiltrate the survivors and earn their trust while they build up their strength. Survivors can never be 100% sure of who to trust. The traitors can take advantage of this by spreading lies and setting the survivors against each other.
