The Final Stand
The Final Stand (early working title: The Survival Games) is a first-person multiplayer survival combat game from Hella Games Entertainment featuring archaic weaponry, natural disasters and ever-changing, dynamic environments!
Fight to be the last man or woman standing at the end of each match. Enemy combatants won't be your only opponents; Mother Nature herself will come out swinging, plunging every contest into constant uncertainty!
Concept[edit | edit source]
The Final Stand combines the simplicity of classic deathmatch multiplayer with the complex elements of recent survival games like DayZ and Rust.
Players will not only learn combat skills and special attacks with various weapons, but also survival techniques and crafting abilities. While crafting will be present in The Final Stand, it is not necessary to achieve victory... but shrewd players will be able to seamlessly incorporate crafting into their combat style.
Survival games are contests, staged in regionally diverse wilderness locales around the world. Confident warriors voluntarily sign up and compete in fights to the death, bravely putting their lives at stake in hopes of being the last combatant standing. The one who prevails is rewarded with stacks of raw currency.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Our game takes place present-day. Combatants are limited to archaic weaponry, akin to what was used on Medieval battlefields long ago. All players will start on even ground. There you will stand ready, hearts thumping, as the countdown commences. The fight for your lives is upon you!
Crafting is a key feature that will surface in every contest. Players can craft and build various items like steel traps, makeshift survival gear, and even gliders for swift airborne travel! It should be understood that combatants do not have to utilize crafting at all during a match to come out ahead; but those who learn to weave it into their technique may find themselves more adequately prepared for the unexpected.
Players will learn skills and abilities, and even special attacks for weapons they grow proficient with! Combatants will also be able to climb, jump, and slide during play. We're aiming to create an intense, gritty experience for players, one that will draw them in and make them feel like they are truly engaged in a struggle to stay alive.
The sun can set during play, and the moon will rise. Competitors will learn to use darkness to their advantage... but to also be mindful of the dangers that it brings with it.
Mother Nature herself should be considered a primary threat. Hazards like falling trees and landslides can surface without warning. Full-on natural disasters like tornadoes, meteor strikes, tremors and even the all-powerful tsunami can throw an entire match into chaos. Since the weather and natural phenomena are dynamic in The Final Stand, no match will ever play out exactly the same way!
Contenders can even try to team up with others on the field during a match. There's nothing to guarantee you won't be betrayed by an ally; but if you can form a solid alliance, your strength in numbers will surely give you a formidable edge against the opposition!
Matches end when there is only one combatant still breathing!
Players earn in-game currency rewards for their feats during a game, such as for killing opponents or recovering from near-fatal wounds, or by winning matches. This currency is used in a neutral hub area called The Village to purchase a variety of in-game bonuses, including status boosts and new items like body art and combat attire.
Virtual Reality[edit | edit source]
We are pleased to announce that The Final Stand is being developed to fully support use with the Oculus Rift! For a true survival combat experience, gamers can use the Oculus Rift when competing. You will have to rely more on your senses as you navigate hostile combat grounds around the world.
You're a true combatant, now! Keep your head on a swivel, stay sharp, and be prepared to claw and scramble for your life in an immersive experience unlike any other!
