It's out today if you want to see for yourself.
Watchers key art

A new free-to-play battle royale game is out today on PC via Steam. It's called Watchers and it promises to deliver "a truly innovative take on the battle royale genre."

The game will dro players into a "chaotic and bullet-heavy world" where 24 players will battle it out to be the last person standing. Alright, this all sounds the same so far.

However, unlike in other games, once a player is killed they will "enter a unique Watcher surveillance mode where they can either help or hinder the remaining combatants using some nefarious tricks." Ok, that's a bit different.

These Watchers will be able to track other players around the map. They can then activate various experiments and anomalies that can either help players or hinder players. They will also get to vote on where the Safe Zone shrinks. They can also bet on who they think will win.

The game also features a Battle Pass, an optional purchase, which can net you 86 elite cosmetic rewards across 60 different levels. These include new skins, melee weapons, animations, and emotes.

You can find Watchers and the Battle Pass right now through Steam.

Death Is Far From the End of a Match:
Upon defeat, the player will enter Watcher mode. In this, they will have a new way to influence the world and help dictate the outcome of the match. Players in Watcher mode will be able to:
  • Spy on other players as they make their way around the map.
  • Activate experiments and call upon anomalies to help survivors who are in a pinch or take revenge on the person who caused their downfall.
  • Choose how the world changes, such as voting on where the Safe Zone shrinks.
  • Bet on what survivor they think has what it takes to be crowned the winner.
Take Part in Massive 24-Player Battles:
Get ready to drop like a bomb into a quaint, reminiscent 1960’s town where, in true Battle Royale fashion, weapons are plenty and only one player can be crowned the victor. Join in on intense top-down multiplayer shoot-outs of up to 24 players. Keep an eye around every corner and utilize Watchers’ engaging perspective to get the upper hand on your opponents.

Just remember, with every player you kill you create another Watcher who might be out to get you…
