Coming in 2017: The Culling Of Battle Royale Games. 16 last man standing survival games fight to the death to be the only one allowed to briefly top the Steam charts. Yessir, as the glut of DayZ-inspired games perhaps come to the end of their time in the sun, the Zeitgeist has moved onto their more frantic and openly murderous offspring, the battle royale game. The film-inspired concept was popularised by another Arma mod (much as DayZ was), which did well enough that Daybreak scooped up the creator to build something similar into the DayZ rival H1Z1. There are going to be bloody dozens of these things doing the rounds before the year’s out, you mark my words.
For now though, The Culling (from Lichdom: Battlemage devs Xaviant Games) gets the cachet – and the rocket-powered ride up the Steam charts – that results from being the first brand new game built around the Battle Royale/Hunger Games/Running Man concept. It’s got the gleeful showman sadism of a Verhoeven movie, it’s got a whole lot of sights lifted directly from those Jennifer Lawrence films, it’s got silly haircuts and it’s got a whole lot of crafting. This latter is a big part of why it’s doing so well, and also what sets it somewhat apart from its big-studio antecedents.
Here’s the deal: 16 players are deposited, empty-handed, into a vast dome containing big stretches of grassland, forest and lake, as well as a smattering of abandoned buildings. Then they all have to kill each other (although a team variant is on offer too) with whatever they can find to hand. The last one standing wins, and the crowd goes wild. There’s none of the attempted politicking of Battle Royale or The Hunger Games, by the way: this is openly a gameshow.
Where the earlier Battle Royale games are hung around finding and using ready-made weapons, The Culling is more about crafting basic killing tools out of rocks and sticks, at least until such time that you’ve spilled enough blood to be able to afford loot crates bearing more sophisticated murder-toys. Two rocks make a knife; add another one in and you’ve got a hatchet. Two branches make a bandage. Yeah, just go with it. Sticks and branches in appropriate quantities make a bow, or you can sew yourself a satchel with which to carry more, or even some basic body armour.
It’s pulling from the simple, memorable recipes of Minecraft, but it throws in the additional element of being limited by how many ‘F.U.N.C.’ points you have. Takes five of ’em to build a knife or a bandage, for instance, while if you want to summon in a supply crate full of higher-end goodies you’ll need around 120 F.U.N.C. They’re gained by exploring and by killing, though you can also recycle unwanted tools or components at special stations. Point is, they’re not plentiful: between that restriction and extremely limited inventory space, crafting anything is a pretty big deal.
But craft you must, and quickly, because if you don’t have a bow by the first time you sight another player, you’re almost certainly dead. If you don’t have a knife or a hatchet when they charge at you once they’re out of arrows, you’re also dead. If you don’t have a bandage when they peel a few slices off you, you are once again dead. Some basic stealth – particularly backstabbing – is possible, and guns and grenades can come into play in the later stages of a match, but really The Culling’s violence is all about messy, frantic, almost laughable collisions. While broadly well-presented, its straight-from-the-asset-store animations and physics leave a lot to be desired, and its most crucial dramas wind up looking like shop dummies re-enacting the greatest hits of Chaturbate (obviously I have absolutely no idea what that is. I just heard it mentioned somewhere and thought I’d namecheck it to sound contemporary).
Presentation notwithstanding, there is some strategy to melee fights: it’s not simply a case of he who carries the biggest stick wins. Blocks and ripostes are possible, as is good ol’ circle-strafing, and big upsets are eminently plausible. Especially once you factor in stuff like easily-made blowdarts which do persistent poison damage over time, or even hurling anything in your hands right at your opponent’s face for a spot of crude insta-damage. The Culling is tense and unpredictable even when looking its wobbliest – and I have no doubt that many of those wobbly edges will be straightened out during what will doubtless be a generous spell in Early Access.
There are multiple other layers of strategy, too, revealing a thread of higher-level ingenuity running through what might otherwise be a timed arena deathmatch. You can construct caltrops and snares with which to create ambushes or turn the tables on a pursuer, and you can monitor the skies for crate drops that might reveal the likely destination of an opponent. Certain drops even include ‘man-trackers’ which can lead you directly to an enemy’s location – though, of course, someone else may well have one tracking you. Gas canisters, and a big white button which remotely triggers them, can also wreak havoc. Even if they don’t outright kill someone, they might flush them out into the open.
There’s plenty of ingenuity in The Culling’s brutality, and while it’s an intimidating prospect for a rookie, it’s currently balanced in such a way that you’re fairly unlikely to meet a game-over within a minute of starting because someone shot your brains out from half a mile away. You might even get to clobber a bloke in full body-armour to death with a stone knife because he didn’t see you coming as you snuck up on his snipey hiding place. Quick wits, not necessarily the sharpest hatchet, can win the day here.
This will, I suspect, be a challenge for The Culling as its development continues. Players will inevitably demand new crafting recipes and new drops in order to remain interested, and I can only imagine that retaining any sort of flatness – i.e. ensuring that a naked chap with a rock still has a meaningful chance of surviving an encounter with Johnny Machinegun – is a fearsome design challenge.
I also hope the writing and humour could enjoy a few tweaks between now and then. I’m partial to a bit of SmashTV-style sadistic gameshow host patter, but right now the gags are both broad and thin, as well as looping regularly. It’s getting annoying fast, in other words, and if I’m to buy that for a dollar then it either needs to have masses more variety and some sharper gags or simply tone it down. I think, if anything, The Culling could stand to a bit a wilder, though – it goes some of the way there with its silly haircuts and a few dress-up options, but it’s stranded in a slightly awkward halfway house between absurdity and grittiness. It’s on the road to Saints Row, and I think that destination would suit it rather well.
What I really like, presentation-wise, is how it depicts the act of crafting. While there’s some in-fiction magic nanobot stuff going on to ultimately transform a stick and rock into a working bow in less than ten seconds, you do get some proper, almost toothache-inducing noises of grinding and splintering as your character mashes the resources together. It’s a little thing, and the concept it’s wrapped around is still inherently crazy, but it makes all the difference: you feel like you’re making something from the Earth’s own bounty, not just pressing buttons on an interface.
I’m fond of The Culling, even if it’s not entirely where it needs to be yet. It’s rickety, but it’s managed to bundle appealing theme, stressful conflict and logical crafting into a setup that feels very natural, and it’s got a constant undercurrent of tension. Heading into an apparently empty building in a DayZlike, knowing there’s a risk but knowing that, at the very least, you’ll get to respawn if someone gets the drop on you, is one thing, but knowing that you’re out of the game completely if they do is another. Matches last 25 minutes, so you stand to lose a great deal of time and effort if you get offed in the later stages. Add to that smarter players who know how to use tempting locations or items as traps and the pervading sense of menace is absolute.
The Culling is understandably and somewhat justifiably very popular, and if it can keep it up without succumbing to the over-familiarity or hardestcore-pandering that has seen so many other survival games fade away, it should last a whole lot longer than any of its ill-fated contestants.
The Culling is in Early Access via Steam now. I played revision #88858 on March 8th, 2016.
As a contestant in the deadly game of The Culling, you must explore, scavenge items, craft weapons, and build traps that will enable you to slay your fellow contestants and emerge victorious before the end of the round. Only with cunning, skill, and a little luck will you be able to prevail and survive the match.
Unlike add-on modes in open-world survival games, The Culling redefines the battle royale genre by providing a tightly focused stand-alone experience that delivers incredible thrills and endless story-worthy moments.
Features at Early Access Launch
The core of The Culling is an online 16-player battle royale, played solo or in teams of two. Matches last approximately 20 minutes, with deadly poison gas slowly constricting the arena in the final stages. The winning player (or team) is the last left alive.
With no respawning on death, you have to make every action count. Play too cautiously and you won’t be prepared for the final clash at the end of the match, too aggressively and you might not make it past the first few minutes.
The Culling focuses heavily on melee combat. Use jabs, charged swings, blocks, and shoves in a system that’s simple learn, but requires practice to truly master.
There are 24 melee weapons in the form of blades, axes, bludgeons, and spears. There are multiple tiers of weapons, which deal different levels of damage, from the lowly crafted stone knife to the mighty Katana. Different weapons types also apply different wounds, which factors into combat strategy. All melee weapons can be thrown, adding the potential for ranged combat in any encounter.
There is also a variety of ranged weapons, including bows, blowguns, and even highly-coveted firearms. A gun isn’t a guaranteed kill, however, as ammunition is in short supply and ranged players can be disarmed by melee strikes if they don’t keep their distance.
Players who thrive on outwitting their enemies can sample from a collection of traps in the form of snares, mines, remote-detonated explosives, caltrops, and punji sticks. Matches are fast-paced, so sneaky players must lay their traps in hot spots (such as near an airdrop landing pad) or use themselves as bait to lure opponents in.
A wide range of utility items is at your disposal, with everything from backpacks to smoke bombs, run speed stims to stun guns, player tracking devices to bandages. You start each match empty-handed, so you must explore to survive. Inventory space is extremely limited, forcing you to think carefully about how you intend to play and what you want to carry.
The Culling utilizes a unique crafting system that is very simple to use (no bulky UI-heavy inventory management) but still offers a wide range of recipes. Players can craft rudimentary weapons, a wide range of traps, and a handful of useful items, including bandages, satchels, and even body armor.
Each contestant chooses 3 perks before the start of a match. There are dozens of perks available, and they range from combat bonuses (increase the duration of bleed wounds you apply with blade weapons) to crafting skills (reduce your trap placement time), to general utility (begin the match with a tracking device in your inventory).
All of the perks are available to all players from the start with no unlocking required. You can use perks to define and enhance your personal play style, whether it be focused on ranged, melee, or trap-based strategy. Advanced players will find helpful synergies between their perk load-out and their airdrop selection.
Players select a personal airdrop to call in during the match. Air drops are deadly care packages containing a predefined variety of weapons, traps and items. Be careful, because calling in an airdrop draws attention to you and can be stolen by other players (especially if they manage to shoot it out of the sky before it arrives).
New airdrops are unlocked by opening the container, so finding a random airdrop during a match or stealing another player’s airdrop will unlock it in your list.
The Culling is the most popular game show in the history of the world, and for good reason. The show’s producers have devised events that take place at random during the match. If you choose to participate in these events, the rewards can improve your chances of winning, but don’t be surprised when other players arrive to challenge you.
Flexible Universal Nano-Compound, or FUNC, serves as the primary in-game currency. You spend FUNC to craft, call in personal airdrops, and open certain types of item chests. FUNC is gained through combat and exploration.
Players start the game with a variety of hairstyles, tops, pants, and skin tones at their disposal. Through playing matches, new customization items can be unlocked. There are over 100 items available to unlock, with many more planned.
The Culling places a heavy gameplay emphasis on audio. Making noise by sprinting through the jungle crafting items, slamming doors, and engaging in combat will draw the attention of other players far and wide.
Using audio cues to locate opponents and using the crouch mode to conceal your movements add tremendously to the game’s suspense and immersion.
The Culling ships with one map set on a tropical island. The map size has been carefully tuned to provide just enough space for 16 contestants, but also to ensure than no one is safe for long. The map is populated with landmarks, buildings (full of lockers and crates containing items), hidden caches, and hazards.
Many of these elements are random, meaning map knowledge is important, but offers no guarantees. When the match starts, you can choose to immediately set about crafting some basic survival tools, or sprint to the nearest building in the hopes that it will contain valuable items.
The Culling can be intimidating for new players, so we’ve included basic and advanced tutorials that will help you learn all of the game’s mechanics.
If you’re still not ready to face players online, there is an offline practice mode against basic AI-controlled bots that will allow you to practice in a low-pressure situation.
No contestant leaves a match of The Culling empty-handed. Cosmetic items (hats, hair styles, shirts, and pants) are awarded at the end of each round, with rarer items rewarded for better performance. These items are tradeable on the Steam Market.
Items for the Ironfold Crafting tier (T 12) were introduced with Update 23 Dwarrowgleam Shard needed for Bartered Crafting Recipes.
I’ve always wondered why some people keep wishing to see video games based on the brutal competitions seen in titles such as The Hunger Games and Battle Royale. After all, the whole point of stories such as those is to showcase how savage, traumatizing and sadistic the games would be. So anyone who asks for a game based on The Hunger Games unfortunately kind of comes off as looking like your douchey college roommate who kept putting up Scarface and Fight Club posters. But it would be the dickish to say that the idea of a killer game show doesn’t have merit (hell, games like Smash TV and MadWorld have pulled it off successfully for years now, so my complaining seems ridiculous) and that’s where the latest title from Xaviant, The Culling, comes in.
The basic setup is a multiplayer deathmatch where you’re one of sixteen players thrown into an outdoor arena (complete with giant holographic scoreboard in the sky), and the last one standing wins. The second you emerge from your starting point, the first thing you need to do is forage for weapons, whether you craft them out of branches and rocks or search for hidden item crates. The former leads you to discover various crafting recipes that allow you to construct hatchets, blowguns, caltrops, spears and more. It’s definitely one of the best parts of the game, especially the tension created in knowing that every second you spend looking down and crafting a knife is one that your opponents can use to get the drop on you, the same going for various machines that dispense health and the like.
A twist, though, is that all of these actions cost money, which you have to earn by either finding caches of currency or plucking it off of the remains of dead opponents. So the motivation is there to seek and destroy, meaning you have to hunt through a massive stage filled with various passages and hiding places…and this, sadly, is where one of The Culling’s strengths turns into a weakness.
See, you may think that a sixteen-player free-for-all sounds like a chaotic blast, but between the size of the arena, the fact that most of your time will be spent sneaking around, and the fact that once you die, all you can do right now is either be a spectator or head back to the lobby to join another game, the amount of actual combat you’ll encounter in each match is rather paltry. Unless you’re skilled enough, all is takes is one person hitting you with a blowgun to get the drop on you and send you packing before you can get into any more combat. Heck, in one match where I actually managed to last the full twenty minutes (with the area gradually getting smaller once the ten-minute mark is hit), I encountered a grand total of two opponents who were actually alive. Mind you, it could just be my play style, but having to spend the majority of that time wandering around in search of any excitement doesn’t bode well.
It doesn’t help that the landscape isn’t particularly thrilling either. Save for a few abandoned buildings like gas stations and airports (which all look the same for now), most the time you’re just running in a generic forest. The lack of any music doesn’t help (although this is justified, as you need be alert in order to hear other enemies), but the classic over-the-top announcer is a nice touch, adding some much-needed levity.
Of course, The Culling is still in its earliest stages, so these flaws will hopefully get remedied down the road. If you want to give it a spin yourself, you can check it out on Steam Early Access beginning March 8. For now, though, I’ll just say that in order to liven things up, hopefully future versions are a bit less Hunger Games and a lot more Running Man.
The third extremely rare component, the Dwarf-iron Fragment, is reportedly a rare drop from the actual T1/T2/T3 instances. (Not yet verified.)

Game Paly :
The Culling is a battle royale game developed and published by American studio Xaviant. Following an early access beta phase, the game was released for Linux, Microsoft Windows, and Xbox One on October 5, 2017.
The Culling initially was popular, but in the wake of two other battle royale games, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale, the player base for The Culling waned, and Xaviant halted future development in December 2017. The company later announced a sequel The Culling 2, which was released in July 2018, amid the popularity of Fortnite Battle Royale. It was panned by players and lacked sufficient players for full matches within a few days, leading Xaviant to pull the sequel from marketplaces, and instead restart work on adapting The Culling as a free-to-play title.
16 players are placed in an arena (either a small island or a prison) full of various buildings containing loot. The maps contain caves, bridges, poison gas, explosive barrels, and more. Upon completing various tasks such as living for a few minutes, killing other players, travelling certain distances or interacting with the environment, players receive "F.U.N.C", which is the name of the in-game currency used to craft or purchase equipment and upgrades each match. When particular perks and air drops are put together they provide unique strengths and weaknesses. Players call these combinations "builds". Selecting the correct perks can provide players with an edge based on their play style.
