Scavengers, a free-to-play strategic shooter where players form squads of three to survive and fight for dominance, will be launching its Early Access next Wednesday on April 28, 2021. Midwinter Games, the developer of Scavengers, announced the news on Twitter yesterday, along with the interesting tidbit that players who either have a Steam key or register via the official Scavengers website will be able to play immediately on the 28th. It was also announced that in order to start off their Twitch community, those who want to access Early Access after the game launches will be able to do so by watching Twitch streams and getting a Twitch Drop. 

The Early Access is just on PC at the moment, but console availability--which has been announced for the PS4 and Xbox One--will be coming in the future. The NDA also lifts on the 28th, so you will be able to stream and record every part of the game with no worries at all. 

What is Scavengers?

Scavengers is a F2P strategic shooter where players form squads of three to fight for both survival and dominance. It's a mix between sandbox-style PVE and class-based PVP. Players will be able to choose from a roster of "adaptive Explorers" that will have access to an assortment of unique abilities and weapons. If you want to do anything of note you'll have to outthink and outfight your enemies who are also occupying this frozen Earth.

If you'd like to participate in the Early Access of Scavengers, be sure to sign up here or have participated in prior playtests. You can also wishlist the game on Steam and join the Discord, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram pages. 

Scavengers will be launching its Early Access on April 28 on PC. For more information, stay tuned to TechRaptor.
