The Forever Winter is a tactical survival/horror shooter where squads must fight to survive under the shadow of terrifying and gargantuan war machines.

A tactical survival and horror-laden shooter, The Forever Winter promises to redefine the genre by putting the tactics back to tactical shooter, bringing squad-based gameplay mechanics to the forefront and challenging players to think strategically in order to survive.

The Forever Winter drops players in a post-apocalyptic, war-torn world dominated by gigantic war machines battling over Earth’s dwindling resources. The game's trailer unveils a glimpse of the relentless conflict and the colossal adversaries players will face. This tactical shooter weaves together survival, horror, scavenging, and edge-of-your-seat combat, emphasizing strategic decision-making and challenge.

The Forever Winter is designed to test players to their limits, demanding strategic, co-operative teamwork and skillful play in a world where every decision is the difference between life and death. By combining elements that pay tribute to classic gaming with a fresh and challenging approach, The Forever Winter promises an intense, satisfying experience for those who dare to navigate its perilous landscape.

"We came together to bring us back to that time when teams were pushing boundaries, building new worlds, and experimenting with new mechanics that were both satisfying and worthwhile. The Forever Winter is a love letter to that bygone era, challenging players with intense gameplay while offering a fresh perspective on tactical shooters,” said Branford Miles Williams, CEO and Creative Director of Fun Dog Studios. “This is personal to us. After working on some of the most successful games ever, we longed to get back to experimentation and working on new ideas, new IPs and new worlds. The Forever Winter is coming!”

Key Features:

  • War. War Always Changes: The battlefield is unpredictable thanks to The Forever Winter’s Dynamic Encounter system: enemies have their own goals and agendas, operating in coordinated groups, undertaking full-scale battles — and they’ll intelligently react to your actions. The battlefield you leave won’t be the same one you return to.
  • Only The Smart Survive - But Guns Help: Use your wits, stealth, and skilled gunplay to make it out alive. Choose your path in the shadow of the two great superpowers, loot the dead, and make it out alive. While the warring factions may ignore you at first, the more disruptive you become to their goals, the more they'll seek to remove you from the equation.
  • A Grim Vision Of The Future: Ecological collapse compounded by runaway technological advancement brought us here: a world choked by 40 years of industrial-scale violence between two military superpowers, unmerciful mass killing by AI automata, human-machine hybrids, and the bleak truth of human nature. There’s two sides to this war, and you’re not on either.

The Forever Winter will initially release on PC, with potential platform expansion based on the game's success and community feedback.
