'Project Winter' Gets Release Date - Trailer

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.

Since launching in Early Access at the beginning of February of this year, Project Winter has snowballed into a title worthy of the praise being offered from streamers and fans alike!

Early Access was only the beginning for the developers at Other Ocean, who have implemented major upgrades and improvements to every area of the game over the last 3 months. These updates include a “Mass Hysteria” event which adds a further level of deception that makes it hard to tell friend from foe (as if it wasn’t hard enough!), Truth Serum to aid the survivors in rooting out their saboteurs, and more AI improvements than you can shake a pickaxe at!

Project Winter is offering two bundle sales to help get your friends into the game or to buy in a group! Until game launch on May 23rd players can buy 4 copies at 15% off or 8 copies at 25% off!

Key Features

  • Escape to Survive - As a survivor among 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 - Among 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 starting May 23, 2019 with controller support for USD 19.99.
