Fear the Wolves promises a very interesting take on the battle royale genre, and the new trailer shows just a glimpse of that.

Fear the Wolves maintains the 100-player and big map elements we all know about battle royale, but adds its own twist on a number of them.

The game has PvE threats like packs of roaming wolves which threaten all players, and can be deadly if you’re not careful. Wolves are only one of the AI threats roaming around, you’ll also be coming across mutants.

As you scavenge the world for weapons and ammo, radiation continues to increase. Anomalies will begin to appear in the areas hit hardest with radiation that break reality. In the late game, gas masks and hazard suits are required if you want to survive the deadly environment.

As with many other games in the same genre, you’ll be chasing after airdrops that contain valuable loot. Extracting at the end is one of the game’s main features, as seen in the trailer, so it’s not just about being the only survival left.
