If you were hoping to add another Battle Royale game into your to play list here in short order, then rejoice as Fear The Wolves is heading to Early Access for the PC via Steam. How short of order? We are talking that Vostok Games will have the first version of it up on Steam and ready for those want to join in on July 18th. So, insanely soon so get ready to place another title in the mix of the other Battle Royale games now. At least if you are interested in what Fear The Wolves has to offer so far and want to pad the accounts for Focus Home Interactive. I say that as the rest of the gamers out there will have to wait until 2019 to be able to play the full version on their PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Currently there is no price listed, if any, to join in the Early Access for Fear The Wolves over on the Steam page. This means that it could possibly be a free title to play in the mix while helping out the developers with polishing it all up for launch. It could also mean that they are finalizing all of that and we will see an update just before the 18th. All that is known is that it will have all of the basic elements that we have seen or heard announced so far and that we will get to see many updates over the course of this Early Access. That and we will also get to help shape Fear The Wolves toward the game we are looking for while still staying in the realm of the developer's vision.
