Update: The Culling is available now! Xaviant have moved the release of the Early Access version up and it now available on Steam for less than £10. We had a lot of fun with the closed alpha as you can see on our Youtube channel so come have a look!
We’re big fans of Battle-Royale type games and mods, having had a lot of fun with it in H1Z1 lately (read Ian’s guide on that very game here) so we’re excited to hear that Xaviant are making a game explicitly designed around just this mode.
There’s not a lot of information about so far except for some assets and a great announcement video that makes it looks like a cross between Dead Island, Rust, and H1Z1. We’re excited and will bring you more news as we find out more. The Culling will be coming to Early Access (because of course it’s going to be Early Access) March 8th. The trailer and press release are below.
