Before PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds there was The Culling on PC and it also followed the same Hunger Games style fight to the death in an ever enclosing arena. Now, Xaviant Games’ title is heading to Xbox One via the Game Preview Program next month.
Releasing on the 2nd June, the game sees you trying to survive in a brutal game show where your only way out is to survive and be the last one standing.
Not all is necessarily rosy with The Culling though. When it launched on Steam Early Access, the game was enjoying a growth in popularity but saw player unhappiness eventually creep in as updates released. The problem appeared to be that the community felt that Xaviant Games weren’t listening to their players.
Now, the game is heading to Xbox One’s version of Early Access it will be interesting to see if Xaviant Games has learned from Steam and whether they can make the game as enjoyable as it was when it first hit PC.
