The Culling closed alpha starting later this week

A closed alpha test for The Culling is due to start very soon.


The Culling, the battle-royale style survival game from Xaviant, will have its first public test later this week.

The developer has announced that the game's closed alpha starts this Friday, February 26 at 4pm Eastern time. It goes on all weekend, and ends on Monday, February 29 at 12pm Eastern.

The game features 16 players going against one another in a 20-minute match for survival. You craft and scavenge weapons and traps to help you hunt other players and come out victorious.

If you've yet to register for the alpha, you can do so from here. Keys start going out tomorrow.

The Culling is still on track to hit Steam Early Access on March 8.
