Although the game is single-player it never makes you feel alone as the story and graphics keep you in control of the journey. The game is flexible in terms of FPP(First Person Perspective) and TPP(Third Person Perspective). Jesse Rapczak and Jeremy Stieglitz are the directors of the game which launched on Unreal Engine 4. It is also quite flexible across platforms including Linux, Windows, macOS, PS4, and more.
The game began ruling out a variety of game modes back in 2016 with Survival of the fittest as a start. The game is also entering the esports world with a huge prize pool of 50k dollars. In 2019, game developers came out with a new version of the game called Classic PVP.
