A new shooter-looter is coming to town. And it is where players will find themselves facing the harsh winter.

Fun Dog Studios, a new game development company formed by industry veterans behind games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Doom Eternal, revealed its debut project - The Forever Winter. A coop-survival shooter, it throws players not only into the middle of a biting winter. But also in a world where colossal war machines fight against each other.

Miles Williams, CEO and Creative Director of Fun Dog Studios, said the game emphasizes survival. It is also aimed to 'redefine victory as survival', he said.

"The Forever Winter throws you into a meat grinder and forces you to adapt. Battles are brutal, and death is a harsh teacher. You'll need to work together, prioritize stealth, and leverage the environment to your advantage," he added.

The game has yet to come up with a release window. In the meantime, its creators published a gameplay trailer, revealing the progress they made so for the upcoming game.

A squad of up to four players or AI companions must explore and survive a world locked in a relentless PvEvE conflict. This means enemies are not mindless drones. Based on the snippets of in-game footage shown in its trailer, foes engage in large-scale battles against each other. As a result, they will respond to the players' reactions in unpredictable ways.

In terms of survival, the stakes are also high. Once a squad falls, the team loses everything they scavenged and looted. Upon respawn, they must start from scratch. This in turn will encourage players to look for more resources and craft their loadout strategically.

The Forever Winter will launch on PC, according to Fun Dog Studios. However, they also revealed plans to port the game to consoles, the outcome of which will rely on community feedback. / ###
