Project Winter – Betray your friends

After a busy launch into Early Access. Other Ocean has no plans to slow down. So they are releasing a Project Winter roadmap. Which also details their plans for the game. Both during Early Access and beyond. But what about Linux?

Linux support:

“We will look into it. But it won’t be until after we get into 1.0. Main focus right now is on getting the game in a good spot. Stability wise and playability.”

While this is great. It looks like we will not see Linux support for a while. Since this is Early Access. And developers tend to keep focus on one platform at a time. Which is definitely the case here.

So, for the sake of issuing an update. Here are a few of the upgrades and improvements. This is what’s coming for Project Winter in the months ahead. Well, part of the roadmap:

In-Game Upgrades

  • Host your own lobbies, with the option of password protecting them for private sessions with friends. See what the primary language of a lobby is and join the one you prefer.
  • New maps with more varied objectives and chances to sabotage!
  • New cosmetics and event-based progression trees
  • More varied weapons in Project Winter. Such a silent crossbow and automatic rifles
  • Nvidia Highlights to capture those traitorous moments
  • + More

Survivor Upgrades

  • A rare truth serum that will privately reveal another player’s role to the user
  • Items like energy drinks can be found and used. Giving players extra health, warmth or hunger stats. Allowing them to stay out and survive longer
  • When few survivors remain in Project Winter. They will receive a special airdrop that can’t be accessed by traitors. Giving them a chance to repair the objectives on their own or go out in a blaze of glory
  • + More

Traitor Upgrades

  • Swap outfits with a corpse and confuse your enemies!
  • Traitors will be able to see the traps placed by their comrade
  • New traitor airdrop abilities in Project Winter. Example: reveal the survivor’s health bars above their heads
