Created by some of the same people who brought you S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Vostok Games wants to revisit some of those ideas in a new Battle Royale package in their title Fear The Wolves. Head back to Chernobyl and battle your way through a group of humans, the radiated landscape and the dangerous creatures that make up it.

Fear The Wolves is heading to Early Access on PC, and here's some information about it from the developers:

 

Fear the Wolves is a competitive Battle Royale FPS by Vostok Games, bringing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. DNA to the brutal 100-player arena. The game drops players, in squads or as lone wolves, into the oppressive environments of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl, spread across a 25km² map and forced to fight to be the last one standing. Another to-be-unveiled mode also brings an exciting twist to the genre.

To secure the top spot, players will need to worry about more than just other survivors. Across the hostile wastes, everyone is threatened by deadly anomalies and the dynamically-changing weather – voted for by players and spectators, both in-game and on streaming platforms. As time wares on and day turns to dusk, survivors must stay on their toes and constantly adapt to new situations.

 

Protective gear allows players to explore dangerous off-limit radioactive zones inaccessible to less-equipped opponents - but filled with powerful loot. Wolves and much worse lay in wait for foolish players who don’t keep their wits about them.

Further breaking the mold of the genre, every game is made truly unique by the irregular and unpredictable spread of deadly radiation, which organically closes in on players with different stages of toxicity, all of which can be battled and avoided in different ways.

Finally, every match ends with a dramatic race to the extraction helicopter, with only one survivor able to make it out. Will you pick off stragglers from a rooftop or make a mad dash for freedom? Each extraction is unique, with the final area layout and your skills deciding the winner
