The Gameplay in Darwin Project

In Darwin Project, the players will be able to use such abilities as tracking opponents or setting various traps. As we have already mentioned, the fight takes place between players, but they also have to deal with unpredictable and harsh nature. So during the game, you need to use special powers, look for new weapons and pay attention to the changing weather conditions.

The game allows for 10 players to fight. They are the convicts fighting for survival. Another player is the person who runs the whole show. The show director has a lot of influence on the course of the fate of the players because he can:

  • block or open access to selected areas of the map,
  • change the physics parameters in any area,
  • drop bombs to specific areas,
  • provide information on the location of one of the players to others.

However, the “twelfth player” is the audience. The spectators can influence the show director’s decisions. They can vote for any player to receive benefits like special heals or to be doomed b air strikes. Thus the audience’s favorite may win. A bit like in a football match.
