The Culling is a battle-royale style video game developed by Xaviant. The game was released for Microsoft Windows and Linux via the Steam Early Access on March 4, 2016.
The Culling comes with a number of traits from the survival genre, but also focuses on action-oriented play. If you’re a fan of the Battle Royale or The Hunger Games series, then The Culling will surely appeal to you. In this game, a group of random players are deployed into a closed arena map where they fight to the death. Supplies will be randomly scattered across the map and players will have to race against the clock to collect the equipment they need in order to survive.
Currently, The Culling comes with a single expansive level set on an abandoned tropical island. A few competitive systems are built into the map in order to make sure that players will encounter one another. These systems are slowly introduced during the round, motivating players to venture into some more dangerous sectors of the map.
Earlier this year, there were rumors saying The Culling would also be released for the Xbox One via Microsoft’s Game Preview program, but that didn’t happen. There is no official date available for the release of the game on the Xbox One. Meanwhile, you can test your surviving skills playing the PC version of the game.
