Darwin Project Permanently Adds Duos

Darwin Project has been undergoing testing the last couple of weeks as Scavengers Studio attempted to install a new duo mode into the battle royale title. Apparently things went quite well, as the developers have announced that duos is now a permanent addition within the game.The Darwin Project: A Multiplayer Adventure In Canada

Duo mode is officially launching on Steam today. But players on the Xbox One will have a bit of a wait before the mode makes its way over to console. Scavengers Studios confirms the mode is indeed “planned and will be announced soon.”

Darwin Project is currently a console exclusive for Xbox. It’s development is a bit behind the PC version at this point, but the version of the game on the Xbox Game Preview program is coming along nicely. Recently the developers have implemented Skill-Based Matchmaking into the Xbox One version. And they’ve also enabled private matches on the system.

Scavengers Studios confirms that the plan is to eventually get the Xbox One version of the game on par with its Steam counterpart. The two versions should eventually be synchronized, as the developers have said they’re “working hard to get the Xbox One version caught up with the latest Steam updates and look forward to synchronizing future patches as soon as we can!”

There is an Easter event currently taking place within Darwin Project too. It’s the game’s first holiday event and it will continue running until April 6th. Easter eggs are scattered throughout the Canadian Rockies based map. Finding them can earn you rewards in the form of Easter themed hats for your character.

The battle royale title continues to build momentum following its Early Access release back in March. The game’s twist on the genre with the Show Director mechanic brings added depth. And it makes the game much more accessible to fans inclined to interact with Twitch streamers.
