Studio Wildcard, the team behind the dino-survival Ark: Survival Evolved, have announced their own venture into the world of eSports. Available now on Early Access on Steam, and currently in development for Xbox One and PS4, Survival of the Fittest is a free standalone MOSA (Multiplayer Online Survival Arena) and pits up to 72 players against one another in a Battle-Royale style fight in a closed battlefield.
The game features a continuously shrinking “ring of death” where only one Tribe can reign supreme. Yep, Tribes. Players can form Tribes of one to six players with the choice of Unofficial and Official (ranked) servers, with a variety of game lengths and map sizes.
To begin with players with play in the base forest environment from the original game, with new content added regularly. SOFT will also see eSport rankings, matchmakings and tournaments. As part of SOFT’s competitive angle, each month the top ten ranked players in each game mode’s Survivor League will be rewarded with cash prize winnings relevant to their ranking in the league.
