'Project Winter' Comes To Xbox/Games Pass Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 7, 2021 @ 6:00 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.

Cut off from all external communications, surrounded by icy tundra, and covered in a thick blanket of paranoia and suspicion, the eight-person multiplayer game strands players in the freezing wilderness where they must work together to escape the approaching blizzard as well as the deathly intentions of fellow team members.

The survivors must battle against the freezing elements as well as the traitors in their midst who will deceive, sabotage, and even commit murder to thwart their teammates’ efforts to escape. For the players that encounter wild animals or murderous teammates on their travels, there’s a variety of weapons they can use to gain the upper hand and cling desperately to any chance of survival. 

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.


The snowy game of survival and deceit is coming to Xbox and the Windows 10 store on January 26th - and Game Pass subscribers will be able to enjoy it for free as they hunt for traitors in their midst while trying to escape the coming blizzard. 

“We are excited that Project Winter will launch with crossplay so that Xbox and Windows 10 players will be able to join the community of over one million survivors who’ve been uncovering traitors, backstabbing their teammates, and battling the elements since the game’s launch,” said Other Ocean’s Product Director, Ryan Hale.

“Project Winter’s innovative proximity-based voice chat encourages players to stick together and work in groups to survive,” says Hale. “Solo players that wander off run the risk of having their desperate cries for help rendered useless when running into trouble.”

New Xbox players will have access to the same features as PC players in their quest for survival and escape; including text chat, emotes and proximity voice channels. No matter what platform they’re playing on, the icy and unforgiving wilderness of Project Winter provides a challenge filled with sabotage, betrayal and starving grizzly bears.

Project Winter has seen over 1 million players download the game to enter this world of social deception. Xbox and Windows 10 players can join this massive community to play together via crossplay.

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.

Currently available for PC (Steam, Humble Bundle, and Greenman Gaming), Project Winter is coming to Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S on January 26, 2021.
