'Project Winter' Early Access Development Roadmap - Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2019 @ 8:58 a.m. PST

Project Winter is an 8-person, multiplayer game focused on social deception and survival where players are randomly assigned to the role of Traitor or Survivor.

Immerse yourself in this 8-person multiplayer, where players are randomly assigned the role of Traitor or Survivor.

Work cohesively to complete survival tasks by gathering resources, repairing structures, and braving the elements (beware the odd grizzly bear attack). 

Communication and teamwork are essential to Survivors’ ultimate goal of escape. You’ll discover secret traitors within the group who steadily gain strength as the match progresses.

Armed with walkie-talkies and able to communicate at a distance, the traitors' only goal is to stop the survivors from escaping - by any means necessary.

Project Winter has seen the demise of many a survivor and traitor in the last two weeks since launching into Steam Early Access.

After a busy launch into Early Access, Other Ocean has no plans to slow down. They have released a Project Winter roadmap which details their plans for the game during Early Access and beyond. Here are a few of the upgrades and improvements coming to Project Winter in the coming months:

In-Game Upgrades

  • Host your own lobbies, with the option of password protecting them for private sessions with friends. See what the primary language of a lobby is and join the one you prefer.
  • New maps with more varied objectives and chances to sabotage!
  • New cosmetics and event-based progression trees
  • More varied weapons like a silent crossbow and automatic rifles
  • Nvidia Highlights to capture those traitorous moments
  • + More

Survivor Upgrades

  • A rare truth serum that will privately reveal another player’s role to the user
  • Items like energy drinks can be found and used to give players extra health, warmth or hunger stats, allowing them to stay out and survive longer
  • When few survivors remain, they will receive a special airdrop that can’t be accessed by traitors, giving them a chance to repair the objectives on their own or go out in a blaze of glory
  • + More

Traitor Upgrades

  • Swap outfits with a corpse and confuse your enemies!
  • Traitors will be able to see the traps placed by their comrade
  • New traitor airdrop abilities (ex: reveal the survivor’s health bars above their heads)
  • Traitors will have an expanded arsenal of unique contextual actions for interfering with the survivors, enabling them to better slow the survivors down at the risk of being identified
  • + More

Key Features

  • Survive & Escape in this 8-person multiplayer game of Teamwork & Betrayal.
  • Escape to Survive - As a survivor amongst a group of strangers, you will have to collect resources, battle the elements and complete a series of tasks to call in one of several rescue vehicles.
  • Hidden Roles - Amongst the group of survivors lurk hidden traitors. The traitors are known to each other but not the survivors. Their goal is to stop the survivors from escaping without being identified and killed.
  • Teamwork - Survivors cannot escape unless they work together. Players who wander off on their own will have difficulty surviving the elements, can fall victim to hostile wildlife, or become easy targets for the traitors.
  • Communication - There are several ways to communicate with other players, including proximity-based voice chat, private voice chat radio channels, text chat, and emotes - communication is vital if the survivors have any hope of completing their tasks and defending against the traitors.
  • Betrayal & Deception - The traitors are outnumbered and weak when the game begins, they may infiltrate the survivors and earn their trust while they build up their strength. Survivors can never be 100% sure of who to trust. The traitors can take advantage of this by spreading lies and setting the survivors against each other.

Project Winter will release on the Steam Store, Humble Bundle, and Greenman Gaming ​for PC, with controller support for USD 19.99.
