The Darwin Project open beta weekend has begun

For those of you that haven’t heard, a new arena survival/battle royale game is coming to Xbox One and PC. That game is Darwin Project.

It all kicked off today, Friday, January 19 at Noon PST and gamers will have the game ripped out of their palms on Sunday, January 21 at 9:00pm PST. So, if you get time this weekend, head on over to Steam by clicking HERE and get involved.

Battalion 1944 closed beta has begun
