The Culling brings battle royale

The Culling Announced - Join the Mayhem on Steam Early Access March 8th


Cumming, Georgia – February 3, 2016/ Xaviant today invites you to come on down to get some sunshine and fight for your life, announcing their most merciless game ever - The Culling, landing on Steam Early Access on March 8, 2016.

Jump into a remote island paradise and join a 16-player battle for supremacy as you explore, scavenge items, craft weapons, and build traps that will enable you to slay your fellow contestants and emerge victorious before the end of the round.

Only with cunning, skill and a little luck will you be able to prevail and survive the deadly game of life and death that is The Culling.

“I asked a small, talented team to come up with their dream game and gave them the autonomy to build it,” said Michael McMain, Founder and CEO of Xaviant. “The Culling is the result of that effort. It has been the highlight of my career!”

Unlike add-on modes in open-world survival games, The Culling redefines the battle royale genre by providing a tightly focused stand-alone experience that delivers incredible thrills and a competitive arena for players to duke it out. Only one will be crowned the winner. Do you have the guts to survive?

Lol, wow there is actually a town named "Cumming" Georgia? And they are making a game called Culling that involves lots of cunning in Cumming? Maybe I just have a dirty mind? Or perhaps the devs are truly cunning linguists...

Original Far Cry had 100 times better environments, but ok. For me, this is just a rip off of everything we saw, but with much worse graphics. If this was the dream game of the small developers team, I'm glad they made it, but no....I don't like it.

Exactly, this game reeks of tired Twitch culture & 'Top 10 tips to survive' type of videos.

    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (18 Hours ago)
