Today’s Spotlight is Hurtworld, a competitive survival-crafting multiplayer game by Bankroll Studios that recently left Early Access.
Players start out on the beach, without any resources or gear. Gather basic materials, craft starting gear, and gradually create more advanced clothing and weapons so you can expand to the more hazardous regions of the map. Players can go on their own or form alliances with others so they can tackle some of the more difficult PVE and PVP content. You can check out a trailer above.
Hurtworld is available on Windows PC, and Mac via Steam for $24.99.
Here’s a rundown of the game from its Steam page:
Hurtworld is a hardcore multiplayer survival FPS with a focus on competitive gunplay and strategic map control. It was a super raw experience when we launched into early access three years ago but with the help of the community we have refined and ironed out the majority of issues to a point where we are happy to start expanding our player base.
Brave the elements with friends or alone as you gather the necessities to survive, grow and defend your place amongst Hurtworld’s unforgiving environment. Populated by fierce creatures, rich resources and ever evolving challenges, Hurtworld is an immersive multiplayer experience sure to captivate even the most seasoned gamer.
Craft tools, weapons and clothing to help you survive and defend what’s yours.
Construct a stronghold to stash loot and take refuge in.
Find and restore vehicles abandoned throughout the map.
Explore the many biomes to discover exotic resources and rare items.
Built from the ground up with solid multiplayer foundations designed for fast skill based PVP and PVE. Hurtworld is extremely optimised with highly scalable graphics to perform well on the most budget of machines.
