Set on a frozen Earth, Scavengers is a free-to-play online shooter featuring a combination of PvE and PvP. Squads of three compete to collect as many data points as possible, while surviving encounters with AI enemies and firefights with other players, before a dropship arrives to extract them to safety. The team with the most data points at extraction wins. Players choose from a roster of Explorers, such as Valora, Halden, and Tarik, each with different weapons and skills. Collect scrap to craft new gear from an Explorer’s loadout, such as their signature weapon, and also upgrade their shield to stand a better chance against rival teams. These tips will help players survive against rival teams and Outlanders, navigate the harsh weather conditions such as roaming storms found across the map, and collect as much data as possible before the end of the match, using Data Uplink points to bank their data.

Scavengers is currently free to play in Early Access on Steam and the Epic store, with the developers aiming to launch the game fully across PC and consoles before the end of 2021.

I followed this game religiously after its Game Awards reveal two years ago. One of its hooks early on was about forming temporary alliances with enemies mid match. Then they dropped that and it started looking more and more generic after ever beta.

Has anyone given this a go?

It was F2P so my friends and I did give it a try.
Fun game. Feels like Borderlands by art. Ammo scarcity was something I did not expected as a major mechanic. but yeah...its your battle royale.
